Just back in from beautiful but cold Michigan! It was a great time seeing so many friends and training quite a bit. On the day of the seminar I knew this would be a good one. I have put extensive time, effort and training into concealed weapon draws and the first part of the seminar covered this. We covered concealed draws while wearing a coat, sweatshirt or t-shirt. Some of the draws were the lapel slide, pistol clear, crossbody pull, etc. I showed all of the participants a wide range of concealed holsters. These ranged from in the pocket holster, fanny pack, in the pants holsters, level 2 and level 3 holsters, a wide range of leather holsters and the serpa concealed holster. All of our concealed drawing was performed utilizing a Glock training semi auto and a Serpa concealment holster. After that portion of the seminar we moved onto Firearm defense versus a semi-automatic from pointing to the gut and to the head. We then moved into self-defense versus a knife with a special emphasis on looking at what happens when the knife ends up in between your arm and body. (a very scary thought) The fourth portion was self-defense versus grabs, headlocks and the standing guillotine. The final section of the seminar dealt with grappling with a wide assortment of technique but a special focus on the one-legged butterfly sweep and how to counter it! Enjoy the pictures!
There is also a very short video on my facebook page courtesy of Mike Hammer:
Look for more video footage soon as I get to editing over six hours of video that was taken during the seminar!
