Well 2014 is here and I hope everyone had a great Holiday! Training has been intense here and I am happy to announce that we have a lot of plans coming to fruition in 2014. First off we will adding training in the Predator Armor into our Scenario Based Training. This will give practitioner’s a new way to train full force and alive! I am really looking forward to seeing people’s faces when they get a chance to train with the Predator Armor. You will be simply amazed!!!
I am looking forward to opening up a Training Hall here in Las Vegas that will give everyone a consistent place to come and train in. Whether you are near or far you will have a place to come and train! This should happen early next fall!
We also have several practitioners that should be moving up into the Associate Instructor ranks and Instructor. Looking forward to Mike Hammer making the leap to Associate Instructor this year and Scott Sober making the leap to Instructor! Several other serious practitioners will be moving up into the Advanced Practitioner level which in our system is pretty equivalent to a black belt in most systems.
In 2014 I will be introducing IRT Shock Training to the world. This is a comprehensive course that is designed to meet the personal protection needs of those individuals civilian or military traveling abroad as well as people who need serious self-defense skill sets right here in the United States. This is a short course designed to give you the tools you will need in a violent encounter. It is a serious look at personal protection skills that are designed to get you out of a jam whether through Awareness, Avoidance, Verbal De-escalation or with Violent Action. It has a heavy emphasis on understanding violence and it is geared towards those zero sum situations where your life is on the line. I have been teaching this for a while to civilian executives traveling abroad in very dangerous countries and also so some select military personnel. It is finally time that I get it out to individuals in need of these skill sets. First up I will be training those IRT Advanced practitioners and above who are interested so that they to can be an IRT Shock Instructor. Then we will disseminate it to those individuals with a need for serious personal protection skills!
On a personal level I have been working incredibly hard on my own skill sets and hope to achieve the same growth that I had in 2013. No matter where you are in your training whether you have been training a few months, years or even a lot more than that. Always set some personal goals in the beginning of the year and write them down. Then make sure you stay on target with a quarterly assessment and make that goal at the end of the year. If you do this you will be surprised with your growth through the years!
Big plans and big goals in IRT for 2014! Come train with us and be a part of some thing special and unique!
