Tactical Firearms Training - $600.00

Our tactical firearms training classes are aimed at professional people and serious tactical shooters who require top quality tactical firearms training. All of our tactical firearms classes are taught in a relaxed, ego free and informal environment. The content of our tactical firearms courses is based on the real world experience, not 3rd hand theories or YouTube learned techniques. We teach simple, proven and highly effective shooting techniques used by close protection and special operations personnel. This means we only teach our students tactics and techniques that work; not Gung Ho theories that sound good in a comfortable classroom! Our Tactical Firearms Training is done in conjunction with Risks Incorporated & International Defense Strategies, LLC.
 
This package includes Tactical Pistol Phase 1, Tactical Pistol Phase 2, Tactical Shotgun, and Tactical Carbine Training.  The entire course will require 1000 rounds handgun ammunition, 200 rounds of shotgun ammunition, and 200 rounds of rifle ammunition; handgun; holster; shotgun; rifle; and eye and ear protection.

In addition to our public classes we also provide private one-to-one tuition for individuals and groups; let us know your requirements and we will create a tactical training program for your needs. We can also send tactical firearms instructors to your location if desired.


Tactical Pistol Phase 1 - $150.00

In Tactical Pistol 1, we cover the fundamentals of instinctive tactical shooting at close and medium ranges.  This training is done in conjunction with Risks Incorporated & International Defense Strategies, LLC. 

Equipment: Pistol, Holster, Eye/Ear Protection and minimum of 400 rounds of ammunition
 
 


Tactical Pistol Phase 2 - $150.00

In Tactical Pistol 2, we put an emphasis on instinctive techniques that will give you an edge in hostile situations.  This training is done in conjunction with Risks Incorporated & International Defense Strategies, LLC.

Close Protection Body Guard Training - $1300.00

Our close protection / bodyguard training courses are conducted in partnership with Risks Incorporated and are aimed at serious students who will go on to use the skills taught in these courses. We train both novices and experienced personnel. Our bodyguard training courses are not classroom based seminars. We keep our students busy, as we want to give them the best value for their money. 

Risks Inc.'s diverse experience enables us to refine our operational and protection training techniques to be the most practical and effective commercial system available. Our bodyguard training courses are very different from those courses offered in other U.S. bodyguard schools in that we do not teach high-profile Secret Service-type or Israeli techniques. The Secret Service has a huge budget, extensive resources, legal authority and the full co-operation of local law enforcement agencies. However, this is often not the case in the commercial environment in which individuals usually do not have any legal authority or a big budget!

Our courses are intended for the commercial operative, who aims to provide low profile protection services to clients who are under potential threat. We focus on the subjects that are relevant to those conducting business in potentially high risk environments, where high profile protection techniques would only attract the attention of criminals and corrupt government officials.

Students who successfully complete our courses receive Risks Inc. certification. We assess students throughout the course, there is no end of course true or false test. Students are judged on their attitude, ability and whether we would be happy working with them. 

We can adapt the training courses to exclude firearms training, if the student requires this. In reality, when traveling internationally, there are very few countries in which you can legally have access to and carry firearms.
