Veratus Et Utilitus

Our Mantra. Tell the student the truth they need to know. This stands as our foundational belief. At the heart of our educational philosophy lies the commitment to convey fundamental truths to our students. This principle serves as the bedrock shaping our approach to teaching. Our mission involves equipping you to achieve your training goals, whether they pertain to personal growth or organizational advancement. To realize this mission, we assure you of our unwavering honesty (the TRUTH) in assessing your present standing in relation to your desired achievements.

While any instructor can introduce novel concepts, not all educators solely convey established methodologies and equip you with the skills to adapt to diverse scenarios by fostering a comprehensive grasp of defensive shooting principles. We impart not only the most effective techniques (UTILITY), but also instill practicality yielding Efficiency. Our intention goes beyond merely "expanding your skillset"; rather, we endeavor to place the OPTIMAL tool within your toolkit, not just “another” tool in your toolkit. Efficiency thrives on consistency, and often, simplicity wins the day. We recognize that sometimes a narrower array of choices empowers individuals to make sound and swift decisions even in the most demanding circumstances.
