Fight Focused Handgun II – The Fundamentals
This is a two-day fundamentals course that simultaneously teaches sighted and unsighted fire as one connected concept. Most schools teach either sighted fire or point shooting inside of separate courses. Through my extensive experience as one of the top point shooting specialist in the nation, it has become perfectly clear to me that this is not the best way to learn fight focused handgun skill sets. In order to be as dangerous as you can possibly be with a handgun there needs to be a seamless integration of these two distinctly different skill sets into one “just shooting” concept. This course is designed to give you the essential skills that will allow you to excel inside of many varying situations. Along with the skill sets you will also ingrain a confidence that can only be found when the correlation between the two skill sets are worked and understood. Whether it is a proactive gunfight or a reactive gunfight you will learn the skills, knowledge, and the confidence to rise to the occasion inside of the situation that you are confronted with.
You will be given the solid fundamentals that are the essentials of being able to fight with your handgun. This course is designed for those that are seeking the fundamentals of being able to fight with their handgun and for those that are ready for the full commitment level of a full two-day course. This course goes well beyond just an “Introduction” and is designed to take you as deep into the concept of fighting, as is possible inside of a full two-day format. This course will prepare you to safely, effectively, and efficiently proceed into the more advanced courses taught by Fight Focused Concepts.

70% of all gunfight’s occur in low light. Are you as ready as you think you are? This is the course that takes your fighting skills to the levels that they need to be in order to triumph in the most likely of circumstances, the situation of fighting at night. This course is an in-depth look at the skills needed to be as deadly and as safe as you can possibly be while dealing with low light situations. We will look at every aspect of the fight, throughout the reactionary curve, and give you the appropriate strategies, tactics, and skill sets that will allow you to be as deadly and as safe as you can possibly be inside of the entire fighting at night continuum. Although, we will be covering an in-depth look at the use of the flashlight, this is not your typical “LEO base search and clear” type course. We will also cover taking your reactive combat shooting skill sets to a whole other level, one where you do not even need your flashlight to dominate the encounter.
- The reality of fighting at night
- Vision and night fighting
- Low light manipulations

Shooters often believe that they do not need to train in CQB or tactics. Shooters that believe that will only ever be shooters. If you want to develop past being just a shooter and toward actually becoming a fighter, training such as this is essential.
If you plan to take one course from me this year, this course would be your best decision. Co-instructing it with Colby Rupert is not just an honor, it is a privilege. If I was not co-instructing in this course I would be eagerly paying to be a student in it.
We need to understand and admit the level of theory that we have all been taught in the past. The information and experience now available to us, since fighting the war on terror since 2001, has moved us well past the theory of the past and into a level of understanding, through experience, never before seen in American history. If you want to lean how to fight or take your fighting ability to a whole other level, this course is an outstanding option for you.
We are now at ten students enrolled and there is still room for at least ten more.
