A gun threat is a tremendously violent and serious situation that can take anyone by surprise. In mere seconds, the wrong word, look, move or reaction can cause your attacker to shift from threatening you to acting on those threats, and can result in serious bodily harm, if not fatality. Before the trigger is pulled, a brief window of opportunity exists for you to be able to effectively defend yourself, dramatically increasing your chance of staying alive. Knowing what to do in this moment can mean the difference between life and death, between being assaulted or walking away, between being a victim or surviving.

This four-hour workshop will cover how to effectively defend against a variety of firearm threats and situations, from initially taking control and progressing all the way to a safe disarm. Material will incorporate common techniques used in our Krav Maga system and syllabus. Participants will learn how to handle a variety of long arms and pistol threats. Situations will include, but are not limited to:

-Common hold ups
-Close range threats
-Surprise & anticipated attacks
-Developing skills involved with surrounding awareness, situational control, de-escalation tactics and conflict resolution skills
-Effective technique execution

As with all of our training, participants can expect to be thoroughly challenged both mentally and physically, under conditions which simulate serious threats and attacks as they occur in the real world. Techniques are practiced and tested under dynamic and aggressive conditions. This allows for students to experience what it’s like to be attacked and to understand why and how techniques are effective when successfully applied.

This workshop is perfect for security professionals who deal with firearms, as well as those with no prior experience, Please be advised that the level of physical activity will be moderate to intense for the duration of the 4-hour workshop. Non-members MUST call to book in for a personal interview in order to enroll. All participants under the age of 18 must provide proof of parental consent. Comfortable training clothes and shoes required, water and a sweat towel are also recommended. Registration only guaranteed with payment, no exceptions.
