AKnowledge: The Fundamentals (Click HERE to register!)

With Sonny Puzikas

July 18-19, 2018, Camden, TN

“The Mastery is the sum of perfected fundamentals and practiced, tested adaptability in real time”

 

“Fundamentals” is not an equivalent of “basics” in a training context. 

Fundamentals are guiding principles of efficient performance, the raw materials from which solid and robust building blocks of skills, that make up the structure we call “the fight” are made of. 

The basic functions without fundamental principles, the “what” without the “why”- they are nothing more than memorized to one degree or another “things to do”, when very specific issues occur in the fast moving chaos of the fight. The problem is- those things seldom occur exactly as they do in controlled training environment. 

 

In this class we will use the progression of drills designed to impart fundamental understanding AND practical skills of WHY we do WHAT we do. The WHY will transform and fine tune the HOW of the process. 

 

All six basic functional components of rifle craft- safety, magazine change, charging bolt, trigger, sights and sling- will be explained in detail and most practical and efficient ways of using them will be practiced. 

Shooting drills will be structured to emphasize fighting applications. 

 

Topics to be covered:

  • AK design. Simplicity, function.
  • Do’s and Dont’s of accessories and gadgets.
  • Concept of a “battle rifle”- it’s purpose.
  • Basic rifle functions: 
  1. Safety
  2. Magazine change
  3. Charging bolt
  4. Sights
  5. Trigger
  6. Sling
  • Baseline marksmanship.
  • Less than optimal shooting positions. 
  • Shooting while moving.
  • Malfunctions.
  • Using cover and concealment.
  • Fundamentals of ambidexterity. 
  • Working the corners. 
  • Transitions to handgun. 
  • Building multi-function drills to advance your training. 
  • On training methodology, MindSet and Objectivism. 

 

When: July 18 (Wednesday)- July 19 (Thursday), 2018. 8am-5pm both days. 

Where: Meet at Tactical Response. Will head to the range from there. 

Cost: $450.00

D.I.G. (Dirty Improvised Gadget) V1.0 (Click HERE to register!)

Saperskaya Lapatka aka Spetsnaz Shovel.

It’s more than just a shovel.

When: Jul. 23 (Monday), 2018. 8am-5pm

Where: Meet at Tactical Response, from there we will head out to the range. 

Cost: $150.00

 

The myth. The legend. The shovel.

For a few decades mythical and mystical stories, images and fantasies about paranormal powers of this device and men that wield it have captured the minds of about 20 people....

Those 20- and not more than that- can now learn the truth...

 

One day class (on the range) to explore and learn alternative uses for a common tool- a shovel. 

Russian/Soviet soldiers have carried “Saperskaya Lapatka” (sappers shovel) since the early 20th century. 

It was quickly adapted as useful and practical tool by Spetsnaz units, where it’s alternative usage as a tool of combat was further explored and perfected. 

 

In this class you’ll learn non-glorified and dirty version of what some consider a “signature skill” of Russian Spetsnaz- fighting with a shovel. 

  1. Geometry of a “T” in a fight. 
  2. Four edges and a hammer.
  3. The handle. It handles others. 
  4. The flow.
  5. KISS

The class will be held outside, on the shooting range. Dress appropriately, as we will get down and dirty.

 

What to bring:

  • One open mind.
  • One (or more) “Spetsnaz shovel”. Good quality and almost exact copy is made by Cold Steel and can be obtained here. 

*Do NOT buy or bring other shovel designs- only original or copies of Russian “saperskaya Lapatka”.

  • Highly suggested having a shovel with a sheath, as it can safely be used in training to prevent cuts. Get it here.
  • A training blue gun. 
  • A quality concealed carry holster. www.greenforcetactical.com
  • A training knife.

*Training knives will be available to those who don’t have their own. 

  • Hydration.
  • Lunch.
  • Note taking materials.

Space strictly limited to 20 participants.

Truth. Violence. Death. Neither one of them can be censored, their meaning and essence changed. They are what they are. Regardless of our opinions, views.

The seventh installment of “Violence Uncensored” force-on-force learning/training seminar will focus in depth on 3 topics:

  • Accessing the handgun and engaging threats at extremely close quarters- within arms reach. 
  • Geometry of a corner. Understanding what it is, how to negotiate it.
  • Violence in low light conditions. 

Training drills and scenarios will be conducted in normal, diminished and very low light conditions, mainly in confined spaces, utilizing dedicated non-lethal force-on-force weapons and protective gear as well as numerous methods of distraction and stress elevation designed to duplicate as closely as possible the realities of real-life violence.

 

This is NOT a seminar for absolute novices. You must possess robust firearm handling skills, be comfortable with concealed carry, and have at least some basic hand-to-hand skills.

Number of participants is limited to 16.

What to bring:

 

  • One VERY open mind
  • While face protection gear will be provided- it is highly recommended to acquire your own quality FOF helmet offering FULL head coverage. 
  • Shooting gloves.
  • Long pants, long sleeve shirt/sweater/turtleneck. 
  • Quality belt. Get one here: www.originalsoegear.com

  • Quality tactical light. Bring extra batteries. 
  • Hydration.
