We will show you all the nuts and bolts, plus much, much more. You will achieve a much higher level of safety and confidence when using your defensive weapon for protection in defensive situations. We will demonstrate as many times as you wish, then you'll perform the drill and get proficient with it through repetition. With knowledge and repetition comes confidence.
