Many people train for a fight, but most people never train for the worst to happen. If there is an exchange of gunfire between you and a home-invader, or an attacker on the street, there is a very real possibility of you or a family member being wounded in the exchange. Imagine defending your home against an armed intruder, and then realizing that your spouse or child had been wounded during the incident. You can stand there, panic and wait until the first responders arrive, or your can act and drastically increase the chance of survival.
This course is designed to train common, everyday people the crucial techniques needed to sustain life until more adequate care arrives. There is nothing fancy being taught here.
