    That's right folks, Combative Weapon Solutions will be hosting the only Costa Ludus training stop in Texas for 2014! We are proud to announce that Chris Costa will be offering two separate 3 day training classes for October 2014. The training will be held at a first class private training facility in the Bastrop, TX area. CWS provides a first class training experience and environment for students and guest instructors. That is why we are a preferred host for industry professionals and are currently the only scheduled Texas date for Costa Ludus in 2014. Costa Ludus class dates/curriculum is as follows:


    • October 3-5, 2014 - Handgun Elements Theory 1 / Shotgun Elements Theory
    Custom 3-Day Course: 2-Day HET1 / 1-Day Shotgun

    • October 7-9, 2014 - Vehicle Elements Theory
    Vehicle Elements Theory (VET)

    Although class dates are about a year away, spots are already filling. Do wait to the last minute as both of these classes will sell out due to it being the only stop in Texas as well as the demand for the specific classes being high. Tuition for each 3 day of instruction is $695 each. An additional $150 range fee per 3 day class will be due on the first day of class. Range fee includes one hot catered meal each day while at the range as well as snacks. To secure your spot for one or both of the classes, go to the link below the above class dates. Look forward to seeing some members there. Stay safe.

    For those that are snoozing, your losing! The Costa HET1/Shotgun class is nearly full with less than 10 seats remaining. And yes, we are still 7 months out till class time. The VET class still has around 10-15 spots left, but they are beginning to fill as well. If you are interested in making either or both of these classes, I highly suggest getting signed up and your deposit in ASAP. This class will sell out well before the class date. The last class we hosted for a well known industry professional sold out 5 months prior to class and had a waiting list of over 10 deep. There is a reason industry professionals choose CWS for hosting. WE SELL OUT CLASSES! Don't wait, get signed up today.
