The Amtac Shooting  Integrated Combatives Course

Most “gun guys” think that when faced with a situation that requires deadly force the answer is always “gun”. The reality is that this line of thinking is likely to get you killed. This course will teach you how integrate empty hand techniques with blades, improvised weapons and firearms. You will learn to fluidly transition from one tool to the next based on what is situationally appropriate. This is a physically demanding, hands on course that will elevate your situational awareness and shooting/ fighting ability to the next level.
