Instruction - training - choices
Thank You for visiting our site. We are under construction. Please stop back as we are adding content on an ongoing basis.
We are explorations in Critical Thinking Under Stress as related to Self Defense.
Self defense is a strategy. A firearm is a tool. If your strategy has only one tool, you have increased your risk, NOT reduced it. "IF the only tool you have is a hammer, every job tends to look like a nail" ~ Abraham Maslow. You get the idea.
As a firearm instructor, I see the vast majority of people who obtain their concealed carry permit, do ONLY enough to obtain it. They do not engage in any further training of any kind.
We are recommending that in addition to your range time that you train in conflict resolution, de escalation techniques and strategies, as well as an introduction to the physical skills through martial arts. Training creates awareness, increases intuitive options and makes you safer through smarter choices.
"Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge." ~Charles Darwin
The choice to use a firearm is a decision. It should be the last decision anyone should make. The best way to be sure a firearm is the right choice is to understand all of your choices.
We also include a class in the introduction of MA and Federal firearm law as it pertains to MA residents.
ADC is a program of classes that teach alternatives to firearm use, NOT substitutes. Our classes in De -escalation and conflict resolution, situational awareness and planning are designed for the everyday civilian although not limited to them.
We are not challenging our 2nd amendment constitutional rights, rather, we are challenging your common sense as to what constitutes responsible and effective self defense strategies.
Safety through education.
