BOOK NOW! 
SPACES ARE LIMITED!

EVERY DAY CARRY

1.       You have completed the course in basic firearm handling and received your training certificate.

2.       You  have a Competency Certificate issued by the SAPS

3.       You now own a firearm for self-defense and carry it with you every day (or occasionally, but have it for home protection)

If you have the above, it means that you have fired 10 shots (probably 9mm) on a huge A3 size paper target from 7 meters away with no time limit.

sometimes there is just no other way... 

 YOU HAVE TO FIGHT !

 An attack will be very violent, very brutal, and often fatal.

Fighting for your life on the street is not a sport! 

There is no second place!


Ø  Statistics prove that most attacks occur at close range, mostly between 1,5m and 30 cm!

Ø  Statistics also prove that more than 90% of all firearm handlers/ owners are unable successfully draw and fire at least one shot at the attacker before he stabs you, STARTING TO RUN FROM A DISTANCE OF 6 METERS AWAY!

Ø  The legal requirements to own a firearm does not prepare you for this, neither does the minimum specifications on handle and use of firearms.

Ø  Mind-set is everything.

Ø  Training is only second to mind-set.

Ø  Action always beats reaction (as long as you hit with your first shot.)

Ø  Anyone can be a target. Criminals get their guns from the most unlikely sources. (Another reason why law abiding citizens should never be disarmed.)

Ø  It does not matter to us where you are at the start of the class. What matters to us is where you are at the end of the course.

Ø  We will take you from whatever level you’re presently at and significantly improve your skills during the time that you spend with us.

 

During this course, you can expect the following:

Ø  You will experience training that is seldom or nowhere available to the public, security industry or law enforcement.

Ø  Material and exercises on this course are second to none in the world.

Ø  You will develop a natural survival strive.

Ø  After completion, you will be able to negotiate any tactical situation effectively.

 

Now that you have your firearm for self-defense, you MUST know how to use it effectively to protect your family.

You carry your gun with you … CAN YOU GET TO YOUR GUN QUICK ENOUGH?

 

This course is derived from 25 years hands-on experience in life-threatening situations. The author and developer of this course, also the CEO of Izalathiso Consultants, have served in high risk units with  the South African Police Force for many years and faced many life threating situations. 

Many specialized units in the private security sector have been trained by the hands of Francois Meyer, this includes specialized 4 week SWAT courses to specialist mining security teams and semi-government institutions. He was also the instructor to a private SWAT team for several years. For the past he trained security officers in several specialist courses, including hand-to-hand combat, arresting / restraining techniques, use of edged and blunt weapons and Close Quarters fighting tactics.


You need to know your firearm and its capabilities. 

You need to know your own capabilities.

You need to eliminate the threat, FAST and EFECTIVELY!

FACT!    ONE SHOT WILL NOT STOP YOUR ATTACKER!

FACT!    WHEN YOUR LIFE IS IN IMMEDIATE DANGER, YOUR HIT RATE IS ONLY ABOUT 25% OF YOUR WORST DAY ON THE SHOOTING                     RANGE

FACT!    WHEN YOU EXPERIENCE LIFE THREATENING TRAUMA, YOUR MIND AUTOMATICALLY FALLS BACK ON TRAINING YOU’VE DONE.


WHAT LEVEL OF TRAINING ARE YOU?


COURSE CONTENTS:

PHASE 1:

  Firearms Handling ( Basic handgun tactics) (practical)

 

Use of firearms during a confrontation is a very stressful event. During such an event, when the body and mind experiences shock, you will experience loss of fine motor coordination.

It is imperative that the basics are drilled into your head. Muscle memory needs to be created in order to react automatically when under stress.


It is imperative that members are trained on the same basic level to build a steady foundation for contingency, especially in handling of firearms. Correct muscle memory is very important during highly stressful situations.

We need to take into consideration that everyone has not been exposed to the same training background, therefore, basic firearm handling need to be addressed.

 

The advantage of the same foundational training is that any member of the group will be able to work with any other member at any given time. Safe handling and use of firearms is very important before tactical training can commence.

 

During the basic phase, we will focus on the following:

 Day 1:

Safety measures and safe handling

7 Fundamentals of shooting:

Firearm Safety

Range Safety Procedures

Draw, Cock and Fire

Immediate Action Drills (Rectifying Stoppages)

Rapid Reload


This phase forms an important building block to the next phase...


PHASE 2:


  2.                   Firearm A.R.T.S. (Aggressive Reactive Tactical Systems) (practical)

Statistics prove that most attacks occur at close range, mostly between 1,5 m and 30 cm!

Approximately 90% of armed citizens are unable to draw a firearm and fire at least one shot if the attacker attacks you with a knife, storming at you from 6m away!

 

Aggressive Reactive Tactical Systems (A.R.T.S.) is an initiative by Izalathiso which, together with the C.A.V.E. mind-set, prepares firearm handlers for life 

threatening situations.

It is important that firearm owners possess the necessary skills and techniques to handle a firearm effectively during life threatening situations.

Firearm handlers should be able to at least function on a level of Conscious Competence, however, Unconscious Competence is the ultimate goal.

 

To achieve Conscious Competence, additional training is required, which will include dry-firing exercises and exposure. 

This will include: rapid target acquisition, effective magazine change, Immediate Action Drills for malfunctions, possible malfunctions, 

using and shooting from cover, low light and torch techniques, wounded officer drills, etc.

 

This part of the course will include:
