NRA Outdoors' most recent venture is sure to be a hit with armed defenders everywhere...in part, because defenders can't take their arms everywhere. This new class, taught by non-ballistic weapons expert, professional educator, author and keynote speaker Steve Tarani, focuses on both purpose-made and improvised self-defense tools that aren't firearms. There are four more of these seminars scheduled for 2018, but if you're interested, you should sign up as soon as possible because they're selling out fast. Remarkably affordable at $395, these classes span two solid days of instruction and are offered at various locations around the country.
Have you ever wished you knew how to turn your t-shirt, jacket, belt, purse strap, a towel and even a plastic kitchen trash can liner into a flexible weapon capable of disarming a gun or knife, and immobilizing an assailant long enough for you and those with you to get to safety? It's not just the province of movies and daydreams; it's a skill that anyone can learn with the right instructor...and Steve Tarani is the right instructor.
Tarani, a former CIA employee who later moved on to the State Department's Anti-Terrorist Assistance Program, is a federally certified force options instructor actively contracted by the US Department of Defense, National Security Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Homeland Security, Drug Enforcement Administration, and throughout the private sector. He's also a master knife designer, federal contractor, published author of eight books, active protective agent and remains an advisor to the US Department of Justice (DOJ), US Department of Defense, and the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP). He's uniquely qualified to work with people from across the spectrum of physical abilities to show them how to defend themselves with the items at hand.
The seminars cover situational awareness and lowering your threat profile, as well as how to use edged weapons, flexible weapons and impact weapons. A complete course review is also provided at the end of this block of training to include sustainment drills you can take home to keep your newly-learned skills.
