Aesir Training 1-Day Defensive Handgun

Self defensive altercations rarely occur in perfect conditions.  Sometimes we can’t get both hands on the gun, and sometimes we can’t even use our strong hand.  Plus, when bullets start flying, everyone starts moving.  Yet, unfortunately, most never get to shoot under these circumstances due to range restrictions or unfamiliarity with the mechanics of successfully completing such tasks.  Aesir Training’s 1-Day Defensive Handgun class is intended to introduce students well versed in the fundamentals how to deal with one-handed operation, engaging targets at up-close distances and shooting on the move.   We strongly encourage students to participate in the class with their every day equipment to help further prepare them for a real world encounter.

  • One-handed shooting (strong and weak hand)
  • One-handed weapon manipulations
  • Drawing from concealment
