ShivWorks PUC/ECQC1&2,Dec.4-6, Texas

ShivWorks will be offering their PUC and ECQC 1&2 class on December 4-6 at a private range near Bastrop, TX.

Friday evening the PUC (practical unarmed combat) class will be held from 6-10 PM.
Saturday & Sunday the ECQC 1 & 2 class from 9 til about 5 PM.

There are class outlines, training requirements, & gear requirements in the training section on the ShivWorks site. You may take the PUC class as a stand alone class. The PUC class is part of the ECQC 1&2, so you must take PUC if you sign up for ECQC 1&2.
The PUC class is $100 and the ECQC class is $400. If you sign up for both, it's $450. You can secure your slot by mailing in a 50% deposit. Contact me for the address

SouthNarc will be teaching these flagship classes, so don't miss a chance to train with this outstanding instructor. The concepts taught & practiced in these classes are very practical and directly applicable to CHL holders as well as law enforcement personnel.

If you have any questions or concerns feel free to ask away, PM, or e-mail at glockfan AT comcastDOTnet



PUC class.

The ShivWorks Practical Unarmed Combat core concepts module is a 4
hour fundamental block of instruction that introduces the student to the
parameters and context of criminal assault. The student will learn how criminals
actually assault citizens in the real world and will initially focus on strategies and
tactics for challenging and preempting the potential assailant. The instruction will
then shift to immediate action procedures for spontaneous assault and how to
regain initiative with non-stylized basic tools.

ECQC 1-2 class.
The ShivWorks Extreme Close Quarter Concepts I & II (ECQC 1&2) course is a
20 hour block of instruction which focuses on a multi-disciplinary approach to
building functional, combative handgun skills at zero to five feet. The course is
designed to instill core concepts of seamless integration and provide the platform
for aggressive problem solving during a life or death struggle. A heavy emphasis
is placed upon commonality of body mechanics between skill sub-sets, which
means that all combative software is reinforcing. Once the student’s skill sets are
initially ingrained, the participant will be stress inoculated with force on force drills
utilizing man-marking cartridges and protective equipment.
The class size is limited to ensure a quality learning experience.

FIGHT! Home Defense

February 20, 2010

The question is are you willing to bet your life and your family’s lives on what you THINK you know about protecting your home? For more info go to:

Home invasions are on the rise in the United States. Truth of the matter is that over two million homes are broken into EVERY YEAR! The reality of it is that in a ten year period you have a one-in-five chance of your home being invaded. In a twenty year period, you pretty much have a 50/50 chance of your home being broken into. Statistically speaking the most dangerous place for you to be is in your home!

OSS feels that it is extremely important for people to learn how to properly setup their home and how to protect those you love.

We will provide you guidelines for developing a home invasion plan as well as how to enhance your current plan. As with anything else, Home Defense BEGINS AND ENDS WITH MINDSET!

Most people have a false sense of security when it comes to personal safety and home safety. One reason that a lot of people don’t have a home invasion plan because they don’t think that “it will happen to them”. If you don't have a plan or execute that plan ON A REGULAR BASIS WITH THOSE YOU LOVE, then HOW do you expect to execute that plan when your lives may be in danger?

Now, whether or not guns are present in your home doesn’t mean there are not other tools available in the home to defend yourself with. Most of the information is valid whether or not you have a gun or guns in your residence. One of the most important things you can learn how to deter burglars from choosing your home.

Our Home Defense Course is designed to deal with three situations that you are likely to encounter.
1. The first one is that you are awakened in the middle of the night due to some sort of odd noise.
2. Secondly, you come home and find your home broken into.
3. Lastly, you enter your home unaware there is an intruder.

Home Defense Course Curriculum:

• Four layers of home defense.
• Discuss the three types of burglars.
• Communication: with loved ones and intruders
• Light intimidation (including the use of handheld tactical lights)
• Setting up your home for tactical advantages (including furniture, mirrors, etc.)
• Items needed in a safe room and how to position your loved ones in the safe room to reduce the likelihood of them being in the line of fire.
• How to effectively search your home with a handgun, shotgun, or carbine.
• What you need to take with you when searching your home.
• How to move quietly throughout your dwelling.
• The role of the “significant” other in a home defense plan.
• Audio and visual target indicators
• Gun retention techniques for handgun, shotgun, and carbine.
• And much more…The Group Home Defense Course is an 8 hour course.

The question is are you willing to bet your life and your family’s lives on what you THINK you know about protecting your home? Even if you learn just a couple of things that you didn’t know, it was well worth the price of the course which is a mere $110.00.

FIGHT! Defensive Knife

March 9, 2010

A large number of people carry knives on a daily basis. This course is designed to learn the basics of how to use your knife in a life threatening situation. Since knives are legal most everywhere this course is a must for those who carry a knife on a daily basis.

Fighting someone who has a knife is a very dangerous thing to do. Your opponent does not have to be skilled with a knife in order to inflict serious injury upon you. Contrary to popular belief, you are more likely to die from a cut or a stab than from being shot. Many people believe that if you cut or stab someone “in the right spot” they will die instantly. Truth of the matter is that they may have up to 90 seconds to injure or kill you although their wound may be fatal. Are you willing to bet your life on what you think you know about how to use a knife in a fight? This course is a must for anyone who carries a knife for self-defense purposes.

We will cover stance, cutting patterns, blocks and deflections including empty hand defense. You will have the opportunity to spar with others in order to practice your skills.

This course is a one day course and costs $125 Course length is 8 hrs.

Course Curriculum.
• Mindset
• Discussion regarding the elements of the fight.
• Understanding the limitations of the knife in a fight.
• Understanding how most life threatening situations really take place.
• How to properly deploy your tool into the fight.
• Fighting postures
• Proper grips
• Targeting
• Distancing
• Timing
• Angling
• How to deal with multiple attackers with knives or guns.
• And much more…

FIGHT! Unarmed Combatives - April 10, 2010 -

Most people cannot carry a gun legally everywhere they go. Therefore, it is important that you know how to defend yourself unarmed because odds are you may very well find yourself without a firearm when you are confronted by one or more assailants.

Fights almost never take place how most people think they do. That is, a fight is never fair and you will probably find yourself reacting to the situation very quickly as opposed to being able to think things through. Unlike most martial arts systems which rely on speed, power, and stamina, we will teach you how to defend yourself using natural body dynamics using the least amount of effort possible with maximum results.

As we get older our bodies do not move the same, and quite honestly some of us get out of shape. So, what are our options for defending ourselves? Well, that is exactly what this course is about. Participants are not required to be “physically fit” although it is an advantage.

In addition, a fight is not a toe-to-toe event. It is unlikely that you will be able to pull off some fancy technique that you may have learned in some martial arts system. Ideally you want to end the fight as quickly as possible. Our unarmed combatives course is designed to accomplish that goal. However, it is important that you have good fundamental skills to build upon.

We will teach you body dynamics that you can potentially knock someone back several feet and end the fight literally with one blow! In other words, all of the “flashy” things you may have learned in a martial arts system probably doesn’t work in the real deal. If you don’t have any martial arts background… GREAT! We will train you from the ground up - literally.

Course Curriculum.
• Mindset
• Understanding the elements of a fight
• Rituals of attack
• How fights really take place.
• Fighting postures
• Distancing (close, medium, and long)
• Timing (relative to distancing)
• Angling (Directions of movement)
• Punching and kicking effectively. No fancy kicks here!
• Elbow strikes
• Balance points and how to break someone’s balance
• Falling to the ground safely and getting back up.
• And much more…

Class Description: Aim Fast, Hit Fast is intended to pick up where most marksmanship

… shooting becomes reactive and speed is determined by the situation rather than comfort
or habit. The goal of this class is twofold. First, to understand the critical balance
between accuracy and speed for each individual shooter. Second, to improve each
shooter’s ability to deliver accurate, rapid fire in shorter timeframes to maximize his
effectiveness shooting a pistol under stress. Skills to be covered include marksmanship,
presentation from the holster, reloads, multiple targets, and shooting on the move.
Prerequisites: This is a fast-paced class suited to shooters who have already achieved
proficiency with a handgun. At a minimum, prospective students should be capable of
performing the following drill(s) on demand:

• Fire and hit a 3×5 card at 5 yards on demand (both double and single action as
• Draw, fire 1 round, reload, fire 2 rounds (3 hits on 8” circle) at 7 yards in eight seconds

Individuals who cannot meet these requirements at the beginning of class will not be able to
keep up with the fast and demanding pace of instruction.
Equipment Needed:
• Reliable semiauto handgun
• Duty, range, or concealment holster with suitable gunbelt
• Enough magazines, pouches, etc., to carry a minimum of 50 rounds to the firing line
• Minimum 1,000 rounds of ammunition (1,200+ recommended; bring more, shoot more)

Larry Vickers, SIG Academy, and Blackwater. A 3-time “Advanced” rated shooter at Rogers
Shooting School, Todd is also a graduate of the NRA Tactical Pistol Instructor Development
program and a 3 division Master-ranked IDPA competitor. Todd is a certified SIGARMS,

CO/WY - Tactical Pistol Class May 22/23 2010

Upfront disclaimer, I don't work for CSAT, nor is CSAT teaching this class. I simply passed their tactical pistol instructors course in October, so I'm offering this as a CSAT certified instructor.

There was a thread kicking around on pistol courses over on AR15 a few days ago and I chimed in. There were some posts and PMs expressing interest in me teaching the course that I learned at CSAT in October. I'm thinking probably in either the Mar-May time frame. This will be held in the north Denver area, approximately 160th and I-25.

Some of this is to test out new equipment (video) and a couple of other things, so the cost will be minimal, (under 100.00, mostly to cover targets, materials, etc). You'll have to have modern, functional equipment and a fair amount of ammo (700 - 1000 rds). An important part is that unlike previous range sessions, this will have to be 2 consecutive weekend days, so if you can't commit to that, please don't speak up.

Approximate gear list will be:

- Pistol with 3 magazines (5 or more suggested)
- Belt with holster and magazine pouches (quality Kydex such as CompTac, Raven Concealment, Bladetech suggested)
- Weapon cleaning kit (cleaning rod, bore brushes, patches, rags, cleaning & lubricating oil, toothbrush)
- Hat, Rain or inclement weather gear
- Wraparound Eye and ELECTRONIC Ear protection (electronic ear pro is under 50.00 now)
- Water / Snacks (we’ll take an hour lunch break around noon, but we do NOT LEAVE THE RANGE)
- Sun Screen (non-greasy or water resistant recommended)

I suggest that you wear comfortable shoes, and clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty.

Here is a list of folks currently signed up. Due to range size and limited personnel resources, we're limited to ten folks per class. The first class is full, but I'm building a standby list and we're already discussing a second class. Please let me know if you're interested andif so, send me an email so that I can put you on the distro list.

New Training Technology

Hey everyone,

I'm currently a student at UCLA's business school and I'm doing some research for an idea in competitive shooting training. It’s a new technology developed in cooperation with the Marines near San Diego to train recruits and accelerate their marksmanship skills. It monitors EEG, EKG and breathing rates to help a user identify the optimal moment to take their shot.

Proven successful in research, the Marines have recently implemented it into Private level and upward training. We think it has potential in competitive shooting and law enforcement training. What we need is a little market research to gauge interest.

So we developed a short questionnaire (that does not require nor collect personal information) but will tell us a little bit about what the average shooters are interested in. It takes less than 5 minutes and has pictures of the product. I appreciate anyone who can take a moment to answer it.

The link:

As a side note, this is a legitimate request for an education based research project. If you are not interested, please disregard. But thanks in advance to anyone who can contribute.

Bill Jeans (Morrigan Consulting; )will be teaching a battle rifle class near Boise May 21-23, 2010. The class will be held in Emmett, Idaho, about 30 miles from Boise. Please contact me for further information: benglandcom.2 AT

This intense course will supplement the student’s existing self-defense capabilities with the ability to strike a solid decisive blow at distance through use of the full-caliber battle rifle. The carbine, shotgun and pistol all have their place, but the full power rifle is the Queen of Battle. Course includes practical marksmanship, ballistics, gunhandling, continuity of fire, malfunction clearance, mental conditioning for combat, and more. Suitable rifles in this category include but are not limited to the M-1 Garand, M1A, FN FAL, HK 91, etc. Iron or optic sights are acceptable. Bolt action rifles are permitted, but not recommended. This is not a competition oriented course but is focused primarily on the use of the semi-automatic .30 caliber battle rifle for defensive purposes and is equally suited to law enforcement and private citizens. Most of the training will be at distances of 0-100 yards, but firing will extend out to 300 yards if rifles and sights permit. Carbine-class rifles (AR-15, 5.56 NATO, 7.62x39) are welcome, but call if in doubt. Pistol transitions will be employed.

Course fee is $500. Ammunition requirements is 400 rounds rifle, 50 rounds pistol MINIMUM.

Bill Jeans is a Marine Corps Vietnam veteran, long-term law-enforcement officer, and SWAT operator. He has been a firearms instructor since 1980 and is a former Rangemaster at Gunsite, besides teaching at Thunder Ranch.

Tactical Point Shooting Class/Indianapolis, August 7

Matt Temkin and 7677 will be in Indianapolis at Eagle Creek Range on Saturday, August 7th for a one day Tactical Point Shooting class. Matt and 7677 have posted on numerous firearms forums promoting point shooting (threat focused) not as an alternative to sighted fire but as an important complementary skill set. Cost $175. For enrollment details and lesson plan contact me at

Start and End Time: 8:30am – 5:00pm

Be on the range by 8:30am to load your ammo, gear up and make ready, we start shooting right at 9am both mornings.
30 minutes for lunch

Equipment to bring:

Eye and Ear protection mandatory
Pistol with minimum of 3 magazines, 5 magazines are recommended
Holster & magazine pouch
500rds of ammo (minimum)

As we all know, ammunition is becoming scarce and more expensive. If you have a reliable .22 pistol (with a corresponding suitable holster) OR a .22 conversion kit (e.g. an Advantage Arms 19-23LE kit), feel free to bring and shoot it. We strongly recommend that you shoot at least 150 rounds from your carry gun.

Israeli Combat Training. South Florida

Internet forums are a hard platform to get a point across as people have no feel for the intensity, the training or the combat mindset involved with Israeli Combat Training.

I invite and challenge anyone who has an interest in taking what they know about tactical shooting and combat mindset to a level that will allow them to push through the extreme psycological and physical stress of an attack. I train you to attack your attackers at every opportunity and to never give up.

Israeli Combat Training is not focused only on making sure you survive a fight.

Our focus is to train you to the point where when everyone else is running away from the active shooter attack, you are running towards the attack in order to prevent further killing of innocents. Not Rambo training...not hero training. Combat Training based on Israeli counter terror techniques.

If this is a level of mental and physical training you are searching for, please contact me for additional details.

Money tight? Don't pay me. If you like the training session, we can work out payment details for months to come. I do not care about immediate payment and I trust in your honesty.

This is my passion and this is what I do best.

I spent the better part of my adult life in Israel working with the security establishment (IDF infantry and Israeli Border Police.) That alone does not mean I am worth a damn but that is my experience.

Again, I challenge you to test me and I expect you to train hard and fight for your life.

Come and visit my website. Ask questions.

Ben Goldstein
Founder & Head Instructor

Training sessions offered daily in the evening as well as on Sundays all over South Florida. Training is also offered every 2 months near Memphis TN.

Awerbuck Stage II Handgun, June 4-6, mid Atlantic region-WV

Louis Awerbuck of Yavapai Firearms Academy, Ltd. (“YFA”) will hold his Tactical Handgun-Stage II class at the Anvil Rock tactical range near Lewisburg, WV, June 4-6, 2010, (FRI.-SAT.-SUN.). The class is not a basic course and requires his tactical Stage I handgun course or the equivalent as a prerequisite. There are numerous other courses from several good instructors that can satisfy the requirement. The YFA website is for more information on Awerbuck, his training philosophy, course description, often imitated moving target systems and more.

All Awerbuck courses are defensive fighting with a firearm instruction, not solely shooting oriented. Tactical Stage II handgun uses a relatively high round count in YFA classes, and it encompasses practical marksmanship, gun-handling and tactical thinking. This is an opportunity to refresh your skill set for CCW carry, improve rusty skills from prior training and going beyond the basic level in tactical training within the Awerbuck training philosophy and technique.

The class costs $550 per space with an application and deposit of $325 received six weeks before course start. The ammunition guidelines are 800 rounds for the primary handgun and 150 for your back up handgun. Depending on the individual participant, some may expend a total of 800 rounds with primary and back up; others may shoot more or less. The range is an excellent facility for this kind of training and charges a daily range fee of $25.

Class sign up is through the class coordinator who can be reached at or go to the website schedule section for more information at . Awerbuck is excellent at diagnosing and remedying shooters’ problems in equipment and/or technique.
For those interested in the tactical Handgun-Stage I, the prerequisite for any more advanced classes, there will be a tactical Stage I handgun at this same facility September 10-12, 2010.
