No one can know what dangers lurk around the corner; a surprise, a mugging, an explosion, a shooter on a rampage or even a terrorist attack. But as an individual, you can learn how to avoid these situations and how to respond should you find yourself confronted by the unexpected. Black Tree’s elite cadre of former military and law enforcement instructors offers courses in enhanced situational awareness that will prepare you if the worst presents itself.

Black Tree’s CRP is an 8 hour program designed by a former Navy SEAL and a former Marine. Our goal is to combine combatives with firearms training in a safe environment that encompasses realistic scenarios. We have developed a condensed one-day program consisting of self-protection techniques that includes training in the mat room and on the firing ranges. We have integrated striking, counters to strikes and holds, weapons retention and ground fighting techniques with gun familiarization, manipulation, target acquisition and accuracy. This A La Carte gives you a brief insight as to what programs Black Tree has to offer. Upon completion, combine or chose our detailed training packages that will help guide you, your family and friends in achieving their goals.

This course is most effective with groups of 5 or 10. You will be asked to name the group you are with; without a group, your ticket may be cancelled and fully refunded.
