One Life Defense VoM Street Defense Pistol

September 15, 2018 @ 9:00 am - September 16, 2018 @ 6:00 pm

Sept 15-16 VoM Street Defense Pistol

VoM Street Defense Pistol. This course is designed for everyone regardless of experience level, to build a solid foundation for a strong fighting mindset, and the basic skills needed for close fighting. Emphasis will be put on defending an edged weapon/knife attack. This is experience-driven fight training focused on well-vetted fundamentals and principles, period.

If you have taken pistol shooting courses and now are looking for specific information on how to actually fight, and information about who you will be fighting against, this is where you need to be. The two days will take you on a journey into the minds of hardcore fighters, where you will begin to not only learn how to train yourself going forward with pistol skills and techniques that are fight specific, but also how to begin re-framing your attachments and values towards a strong orientation to violence. In short, we will be covering both Violence of Action and Violence of Mind.

Separate Range fee of $25 per day will apply for using the Alliance Police Range that you must pay directly to the range upon arrival
