Training Manuals


 Stategy The purpose of this strategy manual is to develop the ideas and concepts leading to the creation of a strategy necessary to defend family, business and community from violent threat. The Strategy manual employs a literary device in order to help explain and bring to life the concepts and issues addressed herein. This “device” is a case study; that is a composite construction of actual events and relationships experienced by the authors. Names and locations have been changed, and the resulting study, while the work of fiction, is representable of the realities facing many individuals, businesses and communities today.  handgun tech  This manual presents 15 key drill sequences every HANDGUN owner needs to master. From proper stance and grip, to loading and unloading your weapon, to drawing and positions out of the holster, this manual provides an invaluable resource utilizing 190 photos along with detailed narrative walk you through each sequence.

 team tactics The Team Tactics manual discusses the tactics necessary for a team to defend a specific physical objective such as a business, school or church.

We loosely quantify a team as a group of 2 to 6 individuals and distinguish teams from units in their organization and objective. A team is a single group tasked with the defense of one objective. A unit consists of several teams charged with defending a territory encompassing many objectives; residences, businesses, schools, and churches.

 unit tactics  Addressing Community Defense and Unit Tactics from a civilian perspective is an admission of civilizational decline. After all, as the Founders of the American republic said, “governments are instituted among men . . . to secure these rights . . . (to) Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” We now recognize that the ability of our governments to secure these inalienable rights is rapidly diminishing. We do not celebrate this fact but we have no choice but to recognize it.

There are several other valuable resources that we suggest that you read. These can be ordered from Amazon.com or other bookstores. We have included a link to Amazon.com for your convenience.

Left of Bang: How the Marine Corps’ Combat Hunter Program Can Save Your Life by Patrick Van Horne  and Jason A. Riley.  About $18.00 and well worth the investment.

  • You walk into a restaurant and get an immediate sense that you should leave.
  • You are about to step onto an elevator with a stranger and something stops you.
  • You interview a potential new employee who has the resume to do the job, but something tells you not to offer a position.

These scenarios all represent LEFT OF BANG, the moments before something bad happens. But how many times have you talked yourself out of leaving the restaurant, getting off the elevator, or getting over your silly “gut” feeling about someone? Is there a way to not just listen to your inner protector more, but to actually increase your sensitivity to threats before they happen?

Legendary Marine General James Mattis asked the same question and issued a directive to operationalize the Marine Corps’ Combat Hunter program. A comprehensive and no-nonsense approach to heightening each and every one of our gifts of fear, LEFT OF BANG is the result.

Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life by Jason Hanson.  About $14.00.  Excellent book for everyone, but especially for students.  Teach your kids to be safe.

The New York Times bestseller that reveals the safety, security, and survival techniques that 99% of Americans don’t know—but should

When Jason Hanson joined the CIA in 2003, he never imagined that the same tactics he used as a CIA officer for counter intelligence, surveillance, and protecting agency personnel would prove to be essential in every day civilian life.

In addition to escaping handcuffs, picking locks, and spotting when someone is telling a lie, he can improvise a self-defense weapon, pack a perfect emergency kit, and disappear off the grid if necessary. He has also honed his “positive awareness”—a heightened sense of his surroundings that allows him to spot suspicious and potentially dangerous behavior—on the street, in a taxi, at the airport, when dining out, or in any other situation.

In his engaging and empowering book Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life, Jason shares this know-how with readers, revealing how to:

  • prevent home invasions, carjackings, muggings, and other violent crimes
  • run counter-surveillance and avoid becoming a soft target
  • recognize common scams at home and abroad
  • become a human lie detector in any setting, including business negotiations
  • gain peace of mind by being prepared for anything instead of uninformed or afraid

With the skill of a trained operative and the reliability of a suburban dad, Jason Hanson brings his top-level training to everyday Americans in this must-have guide to staying safe in an increasingly dangerous world.
