When someone tries to kill you, do you know how, when or where it will happen? Not likely.
Criminal attacks happen everywhere – inside the home, at the workplace, in parking lots, on the highway and in grocery stores. They happen at close distances or from far away. Sometimes there is motive; other times it is a completely random act of violence.
With a stated purpose of making “self-defense instruction that can save lives available to everyone,” the Warrior-Summit is a four-day training conference that will teach participants the basics of defending themselves at extreme close ranges through long distances.
The classes cover empty-hand (unarmed), edged weapon, handgun, carbine and long range rifle combat. I cannot speak to the skill of all of the scheduled instructors, but several of them are known to me, either personally or by reputation. I took a Combat Focus Shooting course with Paul Carlson, for example. In addition to his podcasting, Daniel Shaw has worked with several people I know, and they have a very high opinion of him. Adam Wilson of 1MOA Solutions has an excellent reputation as a long range sniper and instructor.
The seminar will be held at the Southington Law Enforcement Training Center in Garrettsville, OH, which is just east of Cleveland along I-80. The classes start on August 30 and run through September 2 of this year. Prices start at $200 for a single class, and there are discounts for taking multiple courses.
