I have arranged for my friend and colleague Crescenzo Valenzuela to fly in from Southern California to be with us on the weekend of 7/17 and 7/18 for a back to back weekend of calm, detailed, hands on tactical medicine training.

Val’s own company is called Spent Brass Training Solutions, and for many years I have called upon him to provide our students trauma first aid training based upon the Tactical Combat Casualty Care model. He is a former army infantry non-commissioned officer, former firefighter EMT, and private security contractor.  He is both personable and engaging as a trainer.

This is your opportunity to learn about treating blast, stab, and gun shot injuries in the hostile field environment, with additional and valuable conversations about responding to burns, choking, or any other medical emergency that the conversation touches upon. This is the state of the art for what we currently know about trauma medicine and combat first aid.

To join, register for $.01 using the online checkout on this page. This is a symbolic gesture which says “I’m committed.” Remember, seats are limited and these classes will sell out. If you can’t make it, please send me an email at info@monarchdefense.org so that I can offer your ticket to someone else. 

9am to 5pm

1 hour east from San Jose, CA, 1 hour south from Livermore, CA. We will email detailed driving directions after you register.

There are no prerequisites.

Required Equipment:

Water, snacks, sun screen, close toe shoes, eye and ear protection. Dress for outdoor activity (we hold class rain or shine). You should bring your EDC loadout and train with it. If this means carrying a firearm, that is fine, although we will not be shooting them for the purpose of the class. Bring any medkits you have, and Instructor Val can give you recommendations on how to setup your first aid equipment.


As with all study group classes, this class is funded by donation. For tuition, a suitable amount is anything between $50 and $250 per person. Cash, check, Venmo, PayPal, credit card, left testicle, first born child etc. are all acceptable forms of payment.

you may direct Venmo donations to Brian-Wang-11, and PayPal to Info@monarchdefense.org.
