As men our job is to protect ourselves, our families and our tribes. How seriously are you taking that job? This year's Modern Warrior Conference will explore pistol craft, combatives, blade work, grappling, challenging force on force drills and mindset, through the lens of "are you being a 'professional' in these areas?". 

The Modern Warrior Conference is the premier training event for those who are willing to take their job of protector seriously. The instructors for this year are: Tuhon Tom Kier of the Sayoc Kali system, Justin Garcia aka Master Chim, Tuhon Harley Elmore of the Sayoc Kali system and Bill Rapier from Amtac Shooting. Here are some of the topics that will be covered:

  • Pistol craft
  • Counter edged weapons
  • Grappling/ fighting to your feet
  • Low light Combatives
  • Force on Force situational drills
  • Family dynamics (fighting with your family)
  • Mindset

This is a physically engaging course that requires you to have a baseline of strength and fitness in order to participate.

Gear List:

  • EDC pistol with 3 standard capacity magazines and an all kydex inside the waistband holster (the holster must be from a reputable manufacturer, I recommend the Black Point Tactical FO3)
  • 500 rounds of pistol ammo
  • Inert pistol shape (blue gun) and or a SIRT pistol, this must either fit in to your normal EDC holster or it needs to have its own IWB holster.
  • Training blades. Bring the trainer version of your normal EDC blades.
  • Hand held flashlight.
  • Full face mask protection for simunition work (this is not mandatory as we will have loaner masks).
  • Eye protection and hearing protection (electronic ear pro is highly recommended).
  • Mouthpiece.
  • Lightweight gloves (something like mechanics gloves).
  • Medical blow out kit and tourniquet
  • Water, snacks and electrolytes (I use the endurolytes extreme when I am doing arduous training).
  • Weather appropriate clothing that are typical of daily wear, but that you won’t mind getting dirty.
