A momentous training event unlike any other… this event will be 2 full days of force on force (FoF) training from some of the worlds most respected instructors in their disciplines. After seeing so many serious shooters, who enjoyed and were passionate about training, but had never had the opportunity to participate in any force on force training, we decided that this event must happen. We are brining a curated selection of condensed FoF training available right here to UT, for a weekend that is surely to build and contribute to the defensive mindset and skillset of the serious self defense practitioner. This event is open to professionals, experts and beginners alike.
All training blocks will be 8 hours of training (with a 1 hour lunch break mid day), so plan on full, exhausting days. Each training block will be limited to 12 students, providing a better than industry average instructor to student ratio to maximize the learning potential. Each student will have the opportunity to sign up for 2 x 8 hour training blocks of their choice – registration for training blocks will be offered in the order of registration for the event, so those who commit early will be more likely to get the exact blocks they prefer. That being said, the event has been planned with only the best training available, so all participants will receive great training.
This is a Non-lethal munition based training event using UTM marking rounds and other training weapons (Provided).
NO LIVE AMMUNITION WILL BE USED.
Training Block Options
Knife Control Concepts – Aaron Jannetti – Endeavor Defense & Fitness
A committed knife attack tops the charts of “Worst Fears in Close Violent Encounters” in and out of the self defense training world. Each attack, attacker, and situation is different. Training a one-dimensional defense for knife attacks can leave us ill equipped and with a false sense of security. Learning the concepts and skills to adapt is crucial to being able to survive.
This one day training event will lay a foundation of concepts and training methodology to help you reframe your approach to defending a knife to be more aligned with a dynamic attack.
In short, this training will super-charge your ability to execute your plan for self defense under changing variables.
What you get:
- One 8-hour training day (8am-5pm with a 1 hour lunch break)
- Access to the 30-day Knife Control Concepts Stand-Up Online Course
- Training blade to use during the course and take home with you after the #getlearned event
- On Your Feet – Deep dive into the KCC program, skill building, stand-up control elements, adaptation drills, striking, and implementing these concepts into your current training protocol.
- On the Ground – Introduction to the initial elements of the KCC Ground program. Practical skill building, adaptation, and how the concepts from stand up apply to training on the ground.
- You will be given a set of tools and concepts that will greatly expand your understanding of defending against an edged weapon.
- You will be given the tools to continue training AFTER the seminar to really implement the training.
- You will have a ton of fun doing it!
Defensive Scenario Based Training – Jon Dufresne – Kinetic Consulting
A applications based class that allows students to apply the skills and knowledge they currently have to the problems presented to them. This carefully structured block of training emphasizes the development of critical thinking and problem management skills when opposition may be present.
Research (military, commercial airlines, medical industry etc) has proven that learning is enhanced when training is realistic. Scenario Based Training (SBT) is an immersive training environment where students meet realistic challenges and get realistic feedback as they progress (or regress), since everything that happens reflects the students choices. Shooting fundamentals are still a vital part of training, but the use of real-world scenarios is used to also enhance the students decision making capabilities. The training presents situations and circumstances that armed citizens and/or LEOs face everyday as learning experiences.
Participants should be confident in basic shooting fundamentals. The goal of this training philosophy is the accelerated acquisition of higher-level decision-making skills when more than a cardboard target is involved, and there are immediate consequences. Students must apply their subject knowledge, physical abilities, critical thinking and problem solving skills in a safe, real-world context.
- Concepts, techniques, and tactics
- Force-on-force scenarios
- Class begins at 0800 and goes until 1700 (with a 1 hour lunch break)
- UTM Pistol, ammo and face protection are included in the tuition for the course
