Now that you have taken our CCW class, you have risen from unconscious incompetence and you are beginning to "know what you don't know". You recognize that it is time to begin developing some conscious competence of the skills and thought processes that support effective self defense.
In Beyond CCW, you will begin to hone the skills of threat-recognition and life-and-death decision-making through our thought-provoking shoot-don't-shoot video scenarios. You will use a laser weapon to physically act out your response to the video as though it were a real event, and then you will have the opportunity to critique the consequences of your own choices, so that you can practice responses that serve your objective perfectly, and choose better next time if need be.
This is the mental training that will prepare you to survive not only physically but legally, morally, and spiritually as well.
Beyond CCW with Live Fire includes all of these same benefits of laser training with the addition of live fire training on the range in order to instill excellent weapon handling techniques that mesh seamlessly with your mental training.

This class will cover:
- Weapon retention
