DIRECT ACTION! Our contractor colleagues asked us to make a course that was a little more offensive and anyone who has ever trained with Tactical Response can attest; we ARE offensive! This course covers planned and unplanned raids and ambushes on fixed or moving targets. Major topics covered are planning, standard operating procedures (S.O.P.s), execution, infiltration, actions-on, intelligence gathering, exfiltration and reacting to near and far ambushes. A myriad of sub-topics are covered as well.

We are typically asked what type of physical condition a student should be in to attend this course. There is no easy answer. If you want to get the most out of this course you should be in moderate condition at least. Simply put, if you cannot run 100 yards with full gear (or a 25 pound backpack) you will not get your money's worth. Can you still take the course? We hope you will use this as a motivation for getting yourself "battle ready".

It is best if you arrive by 1800hrs the day before class begins for your in-brief. You are required to lodge with your team and not at a hotel.

Our Fighting Rifle class (within one year) and HRCC Small Unit Tactics are pre-requisites for anyone who has not been in a deployable status on a Tier One SOCCOM unit within the last calendar year. This is non-negotiable.

Here are four things you can do to ensure you have a great class:

  1. Watch these free videos. This will make your experience MUCH better and will answer many questions.
  2. We respectfully request that students have read "The Principles of Personal Defense" by Jeff Cooper before attending class. 
  3. You WILL be sent a confirmation e-mail when you enroll. If you do not it is typically caused by your spam filter. Notify us if you do not get e-mails weeks prior to class. You will also receive other e-mail prior to class with additional useful information.
  4. For more information about our classes and to read hundreds of student reviews loaded with pictures and video clips join our web forum
