Pistol Ground Fighting

The first rule of the ground fight is don't go to the ground in the first place.  But if that fails…


An aggressive thug knocks you down.  Face down on the pavement, the smell of asphalt fills your nostrils as you struggle to stay conscious.  Time moves in slow motion but he still closes on you faster than you can react.  He is big, strong, and dangerous, and you are far behind the violence curve.  His actions and demeanor remove all doubt – he is there to hurt you bad, maybe even kill you.  You struggle to draw your pistol, but your arms are pinned…what can you do?  His weight crushes the breath from your body, he pounds your head into the hard ground, and as you struggle to stay conscious an icy realization hits you – this is the fight of your life, and you are already losing.

Are you prepared? 

Dealing with a stomping mob or the experienced fighter’s ground game takes skill, but a lethal force encounter on the ground is not hopeless.  Pistol Ground Fighting gives you the tools to prevail. 

This course will show you:

-       Common methods of attack

-       Exercises and drills to develop fluidity and mobility on the ground

-       Principles and techniques for dealing with ground assault

-       How to minimize damage to yourself while accessing your pistol and winning the fight

-       How to build upon the skill you already have with the pistol and apply it to violent situations on the ground

Most important, this course will give you confidence knowing that you’re not out of the fight once you’re off your feet!  It’s not MMA with a pistol. It’s not about tapping him out or beating a cage-match fighter at his own game. It’s about winning a gunfight that happens to be on the ground. 

Violence is a language.  Pistol Ground Fighting will show you the vocabulary of the ground fighter, but ultimately it’s about making you fluent in the language of the gunfighter.

This course will NOT include live fire exercises; no ammunition will be allowed in the building!  The majority of drills will utilize blue guns, however some drills will require real pistols with training barrels or barrel blockers.  Strict safety protocols will be enforced to ensure safety.

Bring spare clothing appropriate for the weather, including a hat, sunscreen, and bug repellent. Plan to bring lunch, snacks, and water (min 1 gallon per person) for the entire day unless driving to lunch is a viable option from the range location. Bring allergy medication (if needed), a chair (if you prefer), note taking supplies, and a boo boo kit (band aids, gauze pads, antiseptic wipes, antibiotic ointment and tape). You may wish to bring pads such as knee pads, elbow pads, and gloves if the class lends itself to that.
