FIGHTER READY® will expose you to the realities of self-defense while preparing you to fight with the proper strategies, techniques, and tools from the ground up.

Comprised of two synergistic parts FIGHTER READY® covers the spectrum self-defense responses from unarmed to armed emphasizing stress inoculation and critical decision making. Scenario based drills provide you the experience to prevail in a lethal force encounter.

Utilizing continuum based force escalation you will refine your ability to make critical non-deadly/non-lethal force vs. deadly/lethal force decisions under stress while assessing the proper timing and use of unarmed, chemical, blade, firearm, and hybrid responses.

Exercises exposing you to a variety of ambush style attacks will result in unusual physical and intellectual positions challenging your situational awareness, use of verbal commands, efficiency of movement, decision making, tool deployment, and tool utilization.

Both days will focus on non-live fire drills utilizing unarmed and armed techniques and live-fire practical application at our outdoor range.
