Firearms training is not new for us, nor is it all we do. We have a long record of teaching other “dangerous weapons” including edged, impact, and improvised weapons as part of the Filipino martial arts and police training, along with practical and effective unarmed tactics. (Note: knives, “billy clubs” and electronic weapons are also included in WI’s CCW permit.) Because of extensive experience teaching each of these areas already, we offer a unique ability to teach “integrated tactics” that few can match.
We have a reputation for training people who, because of their occupation or environment, need to use the skills we teach them. The people we train have a reputation for being able to use those skills successfully.
