Description: It is not uncommon in self defense situations where an attacker threatens with a gun to get what they want (your wallet, phone, etc). In Krav Maga, we always stress that your belongings are not worth your life, if you can surrender your belongings then you must. But sometimes handing over your belongings is not enough and you have to defend yourself and/or your loved ones, specific and repeated training against gun threats is essential.
         
This seminar is appropriate for all levels, and will cover material from basic gun threats (from all angles, static and moving), to advanced gun threats including third party situations, culminating in dealing with an active public shooter. we will train in defending against a variety of gun threats and the appropriate responses  to those threats, life saving techniques for civilians and professionals who encounter guns in the field. 
Space is limited, so make sure to give yourself time to get a spot before registration is closed!

Even finding a way out of the line of fire of a drunk person’s blind strikes can be a challenge.​
This seminar will set you up to defend yourself and stay safe in these situations! Low visibility, a lack of ability to communicate normally, and high stress are all factors in the nightclub scene. Learn to keep your bearings, spot the exits, and move away from danger as quickly as possible while defending yourself against physical attacks.
