I am excited to announce that Monday, February 5th, 2018 we began offering a regular Home Self Defense Class. This class will be the first Monday of every month 6-8 PM at The Battlegrounds Indoor Airsoft, 530 E 8th Ave, Munhall, PA 15120 .
Classes will consist of white board exercises, physical practice, and tactical force on force validation. The focus of these classes is applicable to Home Self Defense for the armed citizen as well as concepts that cross over into any context where an individual has need to navigate within or around a structure while armed.
This program is primarily based on the work done by my mentor Craig Douglas, Shivworks and is presented with his permission and ongoing review.
Please read this course review of AMIS if you are unfamiliar with the source material.
Each month classes will focus on a different aspect of the overall tapestry of issues present with occasional full spectrum integration events.
A partial list of topics to be covered in classes include but are not limited to:
- Use of cover and concealment
- Appropriate use of geometry to clear space (Pieing Corners, Etc)
- Identifying and interacting with unknown persons
- Use of lights / low light exercises
- Solo structure movement
- Shooting from compromised positions
- In-Extremis room entry
Students will be required to bring full face safety equipment and a functional airsoft gun. There is rental equipment on site if needed as well as a store where any equipment purchases can be made. If you have a SIRT Training Pistol it is useful gear but not required. Bring any flashlights you use for your daily carry or at home. Note taking materials are suggested.
