I want to offer practical training to my students that could be used defensively in real life, caught-off-guard moments that require the violence of a firearm to survive, not for a zombie apocalypse.

Why CFS:

As an instructor, I have found so many students who decide to get professional training, do so out of the context of their daily lives. After studying this program, I found it fit the lives of myself and students, whether they were private citizens, military, or law enforcement.

I want to offer practical training to my students that could be used defensively in real life, caught-off-guard moments that require the violence of a firearm to survive, not for a zombie apocalypse.

Training for so long has not taken our instinctive reactions in to account, which has led to a student’s training not helping them when they needed it most. This translates to the student being forced to improvise themselves through what is already a chaotic and threatening time of their life.

The Intuitive Defensive Shooting program fits this need and many others; it is for this reason I chose to move further along as an instructor with it.
