6/16 Fighting Shotgun Skill Builder – Lytle Creek, CA – 9AM

Lytle Creek Firing Line
Lytle Creek Rd, Lytle Creek, CA 92358


Skill Builder is the forge where Warrior Scholars are created. Your goal is to be a proficient, confident gun handler, a thinker and a fighter. You are the defender of that which is good, just, and pure. Your desire for love and peace leads you to see the necessity of violence should the time come. This program is for you if you are willing to put in the time and dedication, attention to detail, and consistent repetition to develop mastery.

The Skill Builder series is not a class, it is a training philosophy and teaching format which is designed to provide shooters of a wide range of skill levels with an affordable opportunity for regularly scheduled, local, and ongoing education. Skill Builder is built for self-starters who are eager to learn, who have already begun the process of accumulating the skills and equipment necessary to protect self, family, and community, and are looking to add the missing piece of hands-on training.

This program offers regularly scheduled, no-bullshit, safety conscious, time efficient live fire training to supplement your personal journey in the modern martial art. Every month we focus on reviewing the essentials in the morning, and adding to your repertoire by training on something new in the afternoon. Those who come every month to train find not only new knowledge and skills, but also camaraderie with good upstanding citizens, and a community of friends devoted to a common path.

All Skill Builder classes follow the same basic formula: Check in and set up, safety brief, stretching, dry practice, static live fire, dynamic live fire, class photo, debrief, and clean up. We always review safety in the morning, and break down the day into bite sized focused instruction blocks. We shoot live fire drills in a logical progression, starting from the most basic and building in complexity, speed and technical challenge.

As a student of the Skill Builder series, you will push yourself to mental exhaustion, run your equipment to the point of failure, develop confidence in your gun-handling abilities and metal toughness, grow in discipline and moral character, and become faster, stronger, more alert, and more accurate than you previously thought possible.

Those who have seen the light understand that there is no such thing as an “advanced” technique, or an “advanced” gunfight. Simply put, the mastery of core principles, or the lack thereof, is the only thing which differentiates the professional from the amateur, the victor from the victim.
