Incidentally, this is something anyone can do. From young fit guys to older guys with pacemakers and canes, even men or women in wheelchairs, you name it. Force on force is for everyone who carries a gun for self defense.

Force on Force training with live human targets (not paper targets) using airsoft training pistols.

Learn to defend against a single adversary bent on cutting you with a knife, as well as against multiple assailants suddenly pulling bats, metal pipes, knifes and guns advancing on you.

This training class is open to all, AT ANY SKILL LEVEL and is the sort of class you can attend over and over again to maintain your edge!

Students only need to bring proper clothing and shoes for the class (a couple sweatshirts, hooded sweatshirts work great. Knee Pads and neck protection (Scarf, bandana, neoprene neck protector) gloves are always a good idea. Airsoft pellets don't hurt but rather stings at close range, so layering is a good idea.)
