When training a team, the one of the most important things is how the “fight” is approached. Let’s be honest, you are in a fight whether or not you know it. Someone may be planning an attack this very moment and you are totally unaware of their future plans. Most trainers approach the fight from a law enforcement or military background which is not the most effective way of doing things. Many of the tactics and mindset of people with either of those backgrounds is limited to their training. What you need to do is to approach the fight from a civilian perspective with some law enforcement and military “tactics” integrated with your plan. Protecting people at a service or event is much more difficult than you can ever imagine. People who only have Law enforcement or military experience don’t necessarily know how to effectively accomplish that ongoing mission.

Regardless of the experience you have on your team and the training you have received, we are confident that you will not be disappointed with this training venue! The training that we offer is truly unique because we approach the “fight” from a civilian viewpoint. So, if your team is looking to improve their skills and increase the effectiveness of their ministry, then our training is exactly what you need. We don’t teach things that you can learn at just about any training company with law enforcement or military backgrounds. Rather, we teach you to think outside the box and utilize many resources that are at your disposal that you may not know about. Our techniques and tactics are not fancy, but will get the job done because they are simple, realistic, and practical. Our training is unparalleled and we stand behind our training 100%!
