Simplicity: (sim·plic·i·ty noun \sim-ˈpli-sə-tē, -ˈplis-tē\) The state of being simple, uncomplicated, or uncompounded; free of secondary complications; constituting a basic element: FUNDAMENTAL.
Welcome to Handgun Combatives where we believe in simplicity. Why simple? Because simple is easier to teach, easier to learn, easier to anchor in your motor skill set(s) and most of all easier to maintain with limited practice time and available, costly ammo. Let’s be honest, if you are not a member of a tier one military special mission unit or a full time police SWAT Team you are not shooting everyday and shooting is a very perishable skill. As an individual concerned with personal security being able to hit what you are shooting at is more than just an exercise in accuracy, it could mean the difference between life and death for you and those you love. Complicated techniques, though they may look cool or be flashy in appearance, are not the techniques needed to SAVE YOUR LIFE! Less is more in regards to technique and we believe in mastery of the fundamentals of combative pistolcraft…nothing more, nothing less. While known as fundamentals, they are essentials in reality. You must have mastery of these skills to prevail in armed conflict as history has shown repeatedly that fundamentals finish fights! You just need to know which skills to call upon for a given situation…this is what we do.
Combative: (kam-bat’-iv) To be ready and willing to fight.
Anyone who seeks out conflict is not very smart. Why? Because anytime a person enters conflict they run the risk of losing! No matter how well trained or skilled you are there is no guarantee of success in conflict. Our nation’s best warriors, members of the Special Operations Community, are killed regularly by enemies far less skilled due mostly to dumb luck…wrong place at the wrong time… so willingly entering an armed encounter is never wise. That said, if avoidance or evasion are not possible and conflict is inevitable then you need to have the skill to be an active participant in your own rescue. This is what we do.
Mindset: (mi~nd-set’) A course of action based on a previous decision, a set path based on reason and intellect.
It should be understood that the ultimate weapon in your personal arsenal is the brain. Without a proper combative mindset the quality of skills possessed are for naught as it is the mind that engages in combat…the body just follows. Our courses are designed to build confidence in your skill set(s), confidence that they will work when needed. Centuries of research into armed conflict have revealed that it is confidence that one’s skills will work when needed that is the single biggest factor in overcoming fear. Fear will freeze you in place at a time you need to act…freezing is unacceptable and it is our mission to help you build the skills necessary so this never happens to you. This is what we do.
