Default AAR Home Defense/ LMS Defense/ 16-17 Aug. 2013

On 16-17 August LMS Defense held our Home Defense course at the LMS Defense Northern California Training Center in Oroville, CA. Our Northern California Training Center is a purpose designed 6,000 square foot facility designed to provide reality based training programs for civilian, law enforcement, and members of the military. Using fully furnished living areas to replicate a residence we are able to create a training environment that places students in scenarios that a realistic and relevant.

WEATHER:
The outdoor weather was less than ideal with a 2000 acre wild land fire burning a short distance from our facility however with this course being conducted indoors the smoke was not an issue.

GUNS/GEAR:
This course unlike many others is not gear or weapon centric. Although there is much discussion about firearms selection for self defense as well as various support equipment in this course the force on force equipment used is provided by LMS Defense. Flashlights brought by students were all of quality manufacture and from the usual big names.

OVERVIEW:
Home Defense focuses on preparing students for three main categories of encounters that a person may be faced with at their residence. Beginning with providing the skills through tactics and training to address each of the three categories the course moves forward to provide the students with opportunities to do a walkthrough of each type of scenarios that they may face. This process gives the student time to gain an understanding of how to apply each skill. This is then followed by testing of the skills in force on force scenarios. Students are also assisted with developing a personalized home defense plan throughout the presentation of the course. Blocks of instruction on close quarter battle, positional shooting, low light, as well as law enforcement interaction were taught.

Home Defense is one of my favorite courses to teach. Although the material taught each time is the same, the extensive discussion blocks allow students to greatly personalize this course. We have had some very insightful discussions and students have shared some very personal and harrowing stories which add greatly to this course. We look forward to seeing you at the next one.

I would also like to thank the following companies for their support of LMS Defense and our students.

Default LMS Home Defense class was excellent

I attended this excellent 2-day course taught by Josh Jackson. I can't say enough good about it. It combined stimulating and interactive classroom lectures/discussions with mental and physical training exercises, culminating in force-on-force scenarios which really got the blood pumping!

Josh is an excellent instructor/trainer. He demonstrates intelligence and mastery of the material and delivers it in a compelling, interesting and relevant manner. His professional background provides experience, street-smarts and credibility. The interactive and open atmosphere is very comfortable and invites participation and sharing of your own stories. Josh readily adapts his lessons to the students' actual day-to-day realities, providing potentially life-saving takeaways for everyone in the class.

The high point for me were the skill-building exercises, beginning with identifying targets quickly and ending with force-on-force scenarios using air-soft pistols. We got to practice clearing structures and rooms, reacting to occupied and unoccupied burglaries, home invasions, low-light conditions, protecting loved ones, etc.

I would recommend this class to any gun owner or even potential gun owner. I recommend couples take the class together if possible, as one pair of students did during my class. The benefit of this is for both parties to be equally trained and be able to formulate and implement their own home-defense plan.
