    Instructor:
    Lieutenant Erwin M. Ballarta (ret.)
    Military, Law Enforcement and Security consultant, retired Defensive Tactics Coordinator for DPS Headquarters Training Academy.

    Learn simple and effective techniques to retain your handgun from someone determined to take it from you. Develop skills that will function under stress with reality based training and reflex building training drills. Skills developed in this course systematically dovetail with other workshop courses. Participants will learn the following:

    • Understanding the Dynamics of an attack
    • Legal Issues: Understanding the use of Force/Deadly Force
    • Situational Awareness, recognizing and avoiding dangerous situations
    • Increasing the reactionary gap of your opponent
    • Create lag time necessary to apply other force options
    • Dynamic Evasive and Disengagement Techniques
    • Empty hand and intermediate weapons
    • Devastating Stunning Tactics
    • Disarming and countering disarms
    • Minimizing the opportunities for anyone to attempt to take your firearm
    • Securing your handgun from frontal, side & rear approaches, in holster and out
    • Techniques for standing, kneeling & ground situations
    This 8 hour course addresses the realities of a civilian/assailant encounter. Life doesn't always run according to plan and that concealed handgun may not be immediately available. Erwin Ballarta will teach you the vital techniques you'll need to buy those critical seconds needed to escape the encounter, access your weapon, or, if a fight is unavoidable, position yourself to gain the advantage and emerge victorious.

    We recommended this class for CHL holders, military, law enforcement, security personnel, and any citizens who believe in taking responsibility for their safety and that of their family.

    Date: Saturday, Oct. 24
    Time: 8am-5pm (1 hr lunch)
    Tuition:
    $120.00 per student

    Erwin Ballarta has trained DPS troopers for years. He's a Kali master, and very impressive. If you can make it, you won't be disappointed.

    It depends on the turnout for this one. If this one does well, we'll schedule more. The plan is to hold more specialized classes.

    That would be awesome. I'm gonna have trouble going next month. I do wanna go, and especially take my fiancee. It would be cool if there was another in november. It sounds like a good idea, I mean with having classes and all. I went and took your beginer pistol class a couple of weeks ago, it was good stuff plus it was relatively inexpensive compared to some other ranges out there which I will not name. I can't wait to come back and take it again. Keep up the good work over there.

    If we can get a good response on this one, we'll put on more. Erwin is a first class instructor, and he's not cheap, so we're making almost nothing on this class. Get your friends to sign up so we can afford to keep him coming.

    He normally teaches this class in Austin for $140.00.

    The promo code applies to new CHLs only at this time. We're really not making anything on this class, so there's no room for discounts. Sorry.
