One Full Day

Prerequisite: None

Maximum Class Size: 10

Introduction to Home Defense is designed to bring civilians into the world of Close Quarters Battle (CQB) through class room discussion of the theory and principles behind CQB and the crawl, walk, run methodology. In the shoot house, we will show the student the safest and most effective ways to defend themselves and their families should they find a violent aggressor in their home. These techniques apply to buildings in general and we will discuss scenarios in malls and more public settings as well. This one-day course will prepare you for our more advanced 2-day Active Shooter Response course.

The following topics will be covered during the course:

• Dynamics of a home invasion/terror event in a public area
