This two-day seminar teaches how crime happens and the common types of conflict you can find yourself in. This information is essential to understand threat recognition, avoidance, de-escalation, scaling force and justifying your actions to the authorities in the aftermath. Success is more than the actions you take. It’s also about the actions you deliberately don’t engage in. You’ll learn which actions escalate a situation and destroy your self-defense claim.  This course complements your existing knowledge. Physical skills are critical, but there’s more to safety and staying out of prison for defending yourself. 

Taught in person by Marc MacYoung and Jenna Meek.

This class is geared toward novice to experienced shooters who are already familiar with their rifles and are looking outside the basic classes to tune up their carbine skills. At this level we expect students to have an understanding of weapon manipulation and most importantly muzzle awareness and safety.

This course balances the speed and accuracy requirements many seek. There is heavy emphasis on accuracy and timed standards and weapons flow (this course can and will be tailored up to the skill levels of students attending as needed).

Taught in person by Massad Ayoob

This one week 40+ hour course of instruction is offered by the Massad Ayoob Group in conjunction with The Firearms Academy of Seattle, Inc. to teach and certify self-defense firearms instructors in the complicated and nuanced discipline of teaching the legalities of use of deadly force in self-defense. Teaching how to shoot is the easy part. Much tougher is teaching people when and when not to use force, including deadly force, in self defense. In addition to learning what to teach and how to present it, students will also learn how to take their expertise to court, to both serve as a material witness for their students, and perhaps an expert witness in other self-defense court cases.
