YFAinc.com ....

I'd check www.YFAinc.com . Awerbuck may have retired or only teaches limited classes. He's highly respected. I'd take his courses or buy his training guides for gun tactics & proper methods.

AFAIK he is still teaching occasional classes at Reed's Indoor Range in Santa Clare, California. I've taken a couple of his classes there in fairly recent years.

What a schedule. I'm worn out just reading it.

I'm hoping he'll be doing one of his force-on-force classes here around the middle or end of this year.

Insider Joke, ask him if he wants a lift with the English Instructor, who was on the Board of IALEFI. The one who drove the pursuit Impala! In DC?

Louis

Wife and I took a low light shooting class from Louis last month. It was a great class. I have taken many classes from Louis, up to level 7. Wife likes his classes and she is now competent to defend in low light.
He is very professional and is amazing at correcting flaws in student shooting. He doesn't make you look like a fool when you miss. I have saved a lot of ammo by taking classes from Louis, because my shooting develops faster with less practice. It's a money saver!
