About This Course

This 3 day program combines the curriculum of the Combat Focus Shooting Course with much of the Two Day Advanced Pistol Handling Program into one 2000 round course. In addition to exploring the principles and fundamentals of the Combat Focus Program and numerous drills to help students develop a better understanding of the Balance between Speed & Precision, this course will cover the techniques of:

* 360 degree presentation from the holster,

* one handed (strong & weak) weapons handling,

* unorthodox shooting positions and much more.


- This course is features a significant amount time discussing what happens during dynamic encounters and dissecting each shooters performance, and will focus on the student’s ability to use their pistol as efficiently and consistently as possible under realistic conditions.

- A variety of drills and scenarios will be used to force the student to confront problems that come from administrative weapons handling and to reinforce good habits. This course can be taught at any square range and will also expose students to making the most out of any range session to keep tactical pistol training in context!


For decades, combat shooters have known (and progressive trainers have acknowledged) that the human body and mind have predictable, instinctive responses to surprise and lethal threats. While the basics of weapons handling and marksmanship are important skills for all shooters, they are not the basis for success during most lethal encounters involving the defensive use of a handgun. You are much more likely to be caught off-guard by an aggressive attacker in close quarters and low-light than you are to be confronted by a truly lethal threat in broad daylight standing 30 yards away in front of a dirt berm.

Combat Focus is an intuitive shooting program that is based on the study of empirical evidence from real violent encounters and builds on the body’s natural reaction to an attack. At the ranges that gun fights typically occur, Combat Focus is the most effective way to engage your threat with a handgun. This three day course empowers students by encouraging them to embrace their bodies natural reaction to a lethal threat and work with it to neutralize that threat as efficiently and effectively as possible. The Combat Focus Technique is not hip-shooting, in fact, the only significant difference between using this technique and sighted fire is the focus of your attention at the moment the trigger breaks.
