Sometimes the only thing that makes us equal to a determined attacker is our ability to deploy an "equalizer".
An equalizer can be a pistol, a blade, a rifle; or, it can be all three. Without the proper training though, these equalizers can be a liability to you. The more you sweat on the mat and on the range, the less you bleed in the streets!
"In-fight weapons access", as coined by Mr. Craig Douglas, (deterrents, edged weapons or fire arms inside of grappling or striking ranges) followed by casualty care (self-aid/buddy-aid) are all incorporated into three days of HARD training in this course where you will learn the following skills to help you survive the unthinkable:
Controlling space: The importance of time, distance, cover and concealment.
Shooting from compromised positions and from cover.
You will learn to shoot in darkness: Our night fire portion is fantastic!!!!
Low light and NO light shooting techniques using either weapon mounted lights or handheld flashlight.
One handed weapon manipulation and malfunction clearance drills.
There are no formal training prerequisites required for participation in this course. Likewise, you cannot be “overqualified” to take it either. There are civilians and law enforcement students alike who have taken this course many times over as they find it sharpens their developed skills and they continually learn more each time.
Satisfactory completion of this course may make you eligible for other DSA™ courses, subject to Owner/Operator admissions approval.
Ability to pass a criminal background check is required for admission into all DSA™ courses.
Semi-automatic pistol with magazine pouches.
Edged weapon with sheath and a trainer for your blade (if you have it).
A rigid belt that will not allow the holster to sag. Battle belts are fine if you must wear one.
Inside or outside the waistband. We’d like you to train in what you’re going to have on while in public and or on the job if you are an officer.
A handheld flashlight is a must have item.
A weapon mounted light is acceptable but you will still need a handheld flashlight for the night fire courses.
300-400 rounds of pistol.
Personal Protective Equipment:
ANSI Ballistic rated eye protection with clear lenses for night fire. Ear protection. Mouth guard.

A chair to sit on at the range. If you are flying in, we will provide you one.
