Couples, Families, and Teams – Introduction to Defensive Handgun

This one day (six hours) course is specifically designed for the people out there that would like to train with the people who mean the most to them. Throughout the years. I have had many people request courses that are geared towards couples, families, and teams. The fact is that many people do not train due to not being comfortable training solo or with their loved ones, inside of large groups of individuals that they do not know. Whether you are a husband/father that would like to have a course geared towards your family unit, or a wife/mother that would like to have a course geared towards your family unit, or any other possibly relationship or situation, this course was designed just for you. The value of having everyone that you care about on the exact same page, in regards to defensive handgun skill sets can not be understated. When everyone involves  knows the “how, where, when, and why” of solid defensive handgun skills, there is nowhere to go but onward and upward.

The “you do not know what you do not know” runs very deep inside of the gun community and it is best when all involved members of the couples, families, and teams know exactly what the other members know. Consistency, continuity, confidence, and competence work hand in hand.

If you already train and would like an opportunity to get the people who you care about the most, to train along with you, this is your chance. This course will be taught in a respectful, polite, and encouraging manner. There is nothing more important than having the ability to defend yourself and your loved ones and that fact will be kept as the main focus inside of this course offering.

Ammunition; 10 snap caps in the caliber you are carrying, 100 rounds of live ammunition, and as always, “bring more if you want to shoot more.”

This one day (six hours) introductory course is designed to get women comfortable with handgun training, past that of a CCW course, an NRA course, or just being taught by family and friends. The goal of this course is to introduce women to the world of information that is available to them, in order to keep themselves and those under their care, as safe as possible. This course will be taught by Roger Phillips, who has trained hundreds of women, at all skill levels, in a manner that leaves them comfortable, confident, and competent in the use of a handgun for protection in a life threatening encounter. This course will be taught in a respectful, polite, and encouraging manner. There is nothing more important than having the ability to defend yourself and your loved ones and that fact will be kept as the main focus inside of this course offering.

Close Quarter Battle Course Description

When it comes to fighting for you life, the most valuable tool that you own is your mind. Fight Focused Concepts course, Close Quarters Battles – The Study is the in-depth study of strategies, tactics, and skill sets that are necessary to be as efficient and effective as possible while fighting in confined spaces. Since 1999, I have been pushing to learn as much as I possibly can inside of the realm of self defense……at the highest levels possible. This is the course where all of that work comes together and reaches it’s apex. These are the training situations and experiences that make us realize that all that we have learned in the past, was nothing more than a building block approach to reaching that summit that is CQB – The Study. This is where it all comes together……. this is where everything becomes crystal clear……. this is where it is all makes perfect sense. This is the apex of much of your prior training experiences and knowledge acquisition.

Hosting Traveling Courses

By Roger Phillips, Owner and Operator of Fight Focused Concepts

Due to the recent over-saturation of the market, traveling courses must be handled very carefully. It is one thing when the venue can be driven too, in 4-5 hours, but when flights and airports are involved, it is a whole other thing. The overhead involved can make the trip nothing more than a break even proposition, which is obviously no way to run a business. I have struggled with this problem, mainly due to my love of traveling courses and the people who I get to meet. But business is business.

In an effort to get back up and traveling on a regular basis, here are some guidelines that I will need, to make it happen. This is a situation that requires that there be sacrifices made by the Instructor, the Hosts, and the Students. The days of selling out 2 day travel courses, at 20 students, at $450 per head is long over and I am well aware of that. It was great when it lasted, but that is simply not the market any longer. My sacrifice comes down to accepting this fact and finding a number that makes traveling  a “business wise” proposition, while not allowing myself  to be unreasonable and spoiled, due to the market of the past.

The days of the hosts getting two free training slots for setting up venues and handling the logistics, without concern for the number of paying students is also something that needs to be closely looked at. The hosts must make every effort to help secure the students and negotiate the range fees. The students can help in this portion of the team work by fulfilling commitments given to the Host and the Instructor. They can also spread the word through training partners, gun forums, and social networking sites. They can also help by accepting paying just slightly more for a traveling course to come to them, over the price of the Instructors local courses.

If we team up, the traveling Instructors can head back on the road and bring their offerings directly to parts of the Country that are closer to you.

All I need to make this happen is really not asking for much. All I need is 10 paying students and reasonable range fees ($20 per student, per day, or less) to get back to traveling on a regular basis.

If you strongly believe that you can make this happen, fell free to give me a phone call or send me an E-mail.

If we work together and make the necessary sacrifices, we can get past this over-saturation problem and get back to training as we once did.
