HOST A HOME DEFENSE TACTICS CLASS AND TRAIN FOR FREE
It's been awhile since we've offered our Home Defense Tactics course. This 3 hour, $60 course is taught in a student's home. It includes an "outside to inside" security assessment of the home, discussion of home defense plans, and armed movement in structures with and without ambient light. We are looking for students to host some sessions of this course in January 2015. If you host the course, you train for free. Contact me for more information.
