“To every man, there comes in his lifetime that special moment when he is tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique and fitted to his talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds him unprepared
and unqualified for the work that would be his finest hour.”
— Sir Winston Churchill
“Performance on demand” is the ability to complete a task, a mission, or a skill – anytime, anywhere, under any condition. Ultimately, it is the only kind of performance that counts. Whether you are an armed professional or civilian, to prevail in a gunfight, you must be able to put rounds on target quickly and accurately – and be able to think, move, communicate, adapt and make good decisions under pressure. “Advanced” techniques are simply fundamental skills performed efficiently, effectively and consistently. We believe the ability to execute a task well under pressure begins with the proper execution of fundamental skills.
Our teaching methods utilize a “performance-based” training philosophy, which focuses on how well a student can execute a task opposed to focusing on a desired outcome (how many, how fast, how accurate). Each student arrives at a class with their own abilities and experiences. Our objective is to work within each student’s skill level to challenge them to improve without concern of the person next to them or worrying about meeting an arbitrary standard. In other words, whether or not you can hit a target at 10 yards or 100 yards is not important when you are training. Our focus as instructors is how well you are executing a task, for instance your r grip, trigger control, sight alignment – so you can improve from where you started. Standards play an important role in the career of armed professionals or even competition shooters, but through a performance-based approach, students will see their skills improve – and ultimately their desired outcome will be met as a product of that process.
Our instructors have decades of experience in military combat operations, law enforcement / SWAT, competitive shooting and firearms training. We run our classes with high instructor to student ratios to provide our students with individualized coaching, opposed to simply teaching techniques to copy. We continuously work to identify and teach what we believe are “best practices” so our students are receiving the most up to date and relevant information on techniques and tactics that are applicable to the real-world.
