Everything around us, from the houses we live in, to the objects we use in everyday life, has three dimensions: height, length, and width. When it comes to defensive handgun engagements, there is a 4th critical dimension — time. The 4DFD will teach you the importance of all 4 dimensions in concert with one another, in how to realistically approach and engage various types of threats in a very fluid and complex environment.

Force on Force Handgun Engagements
Lethal encounters are typically sudden, hyperviolent events that do not follow a set of prescribed rules. To be truly prepared, the worst-case scenarios must be contemplated and professionally trained for. These events may include multiple threats, enclosed or entangled positions, low light, working with a family member, being injured, rendering aid under fire, movement, hard pointing, house clearing, and the list goes on.
In this class, you will be exposed and trained to function at a high level in these extreme engagement factors.
