Defensive Handgun 3 is an extremely technical and intense day of training that will help you to master he foundational skills and knowledge of employing handguns in Close Quarter Battle, or moving, fighting, and problem solving in urban spaces.

This class, while physically intense, is also extremely academic. You may want to film yourself or take notes to review later, as the sheer volume of new material can be overwhelming. Prepare yourself ahead of time with sleep, stretching, nutrition, hydration, and exercise.
