That means bring whatever gear you wear on duty. Be it a sam browne duty belt, chest rig, plate carrier, or whatever. Bring it, use it, figure out if it works the way you thought it would. A note from the STR instructors: The course begins at the Santa Luicia Sportsman's Association Range in Atascadero. On Friday and Saturday, students will learn various skills that will help them prevail in a deadly force encounter. The student will learn combat mindset, basic marksmanship, gun handling skills, malfunction clearing, wounded drills, CBQ tactics, team tactics, movement and footwork. On the third day students will train at "The Budo Ryu" gym in San Luis Obispo. Students will learn various CQB related skills such as striking, defending knife attacks and weapon retention. By the end of the day students will integrate combatives, shooting and tactics while conducting "force on force" drills and scenarios. We feel this course gives the student a tune up on some basic skills, introduces many new and important skills, then gives the student tactics and strategies that will bring them to the next level. The student will get to test the tactics and strategies against a live resisting adversary in the "force on force" crucible at the end of the course.

From Our Clients

"Just attended the January class taught by STR. Great day 1 review of the basic fundamentals of shooting. Day 2, we built from there with wounded drills, team movement, and a great Combat Mindset lecture! Day 3....we hit the gym for an intro to Grav and applied what we had learned in force on force. Excellent venue and top notch instruction...right here on the Central Coast!"
