  • One-Handed Weapons Manipulation with Medical Integration

    One handed weapons manipulations becomes important if you’re with your kids, wife, shopping, or have an object of interest that you must handle.  This class covers the physiology of the body and the personal limitations that follow if you are wounded or single handed. 

    We will cover and discuss the “wounded window of opportunity,” so that if you find yourself in this situation (before the body begins to break down), you will prevail in the battle. 

    This course is high energy in nature, and the student should have taken and practiced the fundamentals, prior to registration of this course.  This is an advanced course and takes place on the live fire range.  The student will incorporate one handed weapons manipulations with medical protocol that covers IAD’s (Immediate Action Drills).

  • Praxis: criminal mindset and ingenuity – Closed to LE / Mil, sworn officers, and first responders


    Ed spent 12 years on the frontline of the war on drugs. Working with law enforcement of every level to combat some of the largest and most organized criminal elements on the planet, he observed massive discrepancies between the training of enforcement officers and evolving criminal methods.

    The arms race of information, accelerated by the internet, left law enforcement chronically behind. While enforcement was developing safer means of weapon carry, criminals were developing and distributing methods of negating access to firearms and other tools. Criminal use of edged weapons starkly contrasts with mainstream systems, stripping away flashy techniques in favor of a primitive, savage and highly effective low-tech approach. Constrained by bureaucracy and crippled by outdated training, enforcement found themselves unable to keep up.

    Expensive lessons were ignored on both sides of the border.

    Ed began to study obsessively. He made it his mission to develop a better understanding of the mindset and methods of the successful criminal, training to counter those methods specifically. Tireless observation and research, reverse engineering of criminal activity, full immersion into critically dangerous environments, severe hardship and fatal mistakes have led to the accumulation and development of the most unique curriculum available to the public.

    After leaving service, Ed focused on spreading awareness of the realities of modern policing and sharing his hard earned experience. Enforcement continues to struggle to adapt to advancing technology and changing methods; something as simple as civilian surveillance has effectively disrupted enforcement across the country. Critical gaps in shared knowledge and training have contributed to chronic and still-escalating use of force violations. Ed continues to struggle to fill the gap, to dispel the myths and misinformation that plague modern officers, and provide a glimpse of the nightmares out there, at the edges of the streets.

    Any savvy thief will tell you: Only dumb criminals get caught.

  • Ranger Proof Slings Gen 2.5

    , $75.00
    Gear Acquired
    First, a need is established. Then, we source out the gear to meet that need. We either seek out the right tool for the job, or an item is sent to us to evaluate. Once we determine the actual use for the gear, and what it is designed to do, we test it completely, without compromise.
    Gear Tested
    We run all the gear we acquire through the most stringent of tests.  We like to say that “we test warranties”.  We put the chosen product through the ringer to make sure it holds up as advertised, so we can give un-biased advice on what makes the cut and what does not. If you see the “Ranger Proof” stamp of approval, you can rest assured that it has been completely vetted.
    Gear Approved
    Once I test it, or my Staff tests it, and it meets our very high standard of performance, then we “Tab” the gear, and deem it “Ranger Proof!”
