There is more to self-defense than just having a gun.  Cecil Burch will be offering two stand-alone 1-day classes, one in techniques useful when standing up, and one in grappling/groundfighting.  These classes are recommended for everyone, not just armed people.   Suitable for all fitness levels. Unarmed training, like gun training, is not a “one and done” thing.   Frequent, or at least annual refresher training will keep your skills at a useful level.  The standing-up class is Saturday Feb 18 and the groundfighting class is Sunday Feb 19.

Don’t have time, interest or stamina for 8 hours? Attend the first 4 hours of either day for the newsletter special price of $90 (paid in full in advance).

MARCH 4 – DPS 2, AT-2 and Low Light Shooting

Every spring and fall we offer these three courses (DPS-2, AT-2 and Low Light Shooting) together, on one day. They are an integrated block of training that includes 4 hours of live fire, 4 hours of force on force scenarios, and 3 hours of low light shooting.    Individual courses can be taken separately. $180 pricing if you take all three.

If you’ve taken them before, we’re offering a $100 all-day refresher price.  This integrated block of training is an excellent way to work on all the skills you’ll likely need in an actual incident.

MARCH 5 – Long Gun Sunday

Two classes on March 5: Shooting Skills, Gun Cleaning and Maintenance (Rifle), and Defensive Long Gun Essentials.   The morning class is 2 hours of beginner level training for those with a new gun or new to long gun shooting.  The afternoon class is 4 hours of drills on the essential skills for defending your home with a long gun.  Both can be taken on the same day.

MARCH 11 – Skill Builder

Skill Builder is a 2 hour, 200 round class suitable for any student and any pistol.   We are offering a “bring a friend” deal: two slots for $100 ($20 savings).  This class is perfect for bringing that friend, co-worker or family member that has a gun but doesn’t practice as often as they should.   Drive out Saturday morning, eat Texas’ best BBQ at Snow’s in Lexington, two hours of shooting at the A-Zone, and get back home before the sun goes down.

MARCH 12  – Tactics Sunday

On Sunday, March 12 we are offering two tactics classes: Personal Tactics Skills and AT-7 More Scenarios. The 3 hour morning class teaches tactics fundamentals: armed movement in/around structures and vehicles, mindset, the OODA loop and other topics we briefly mention in the DPS series of classes.  The 4 hour afternoon course is force on force scenarios in a similar format to the AT-2 course, but with different situations and storylines.
