Vehicle Defense

Course Length:  One Day (8-10 hours)


Course Description: The vehicle; be it sedan, coupe, truck or motorcycle, presents a number of unique challenges for self-defense and the defense of loved ones. From reduced mobility to the dangers of the comfort in patterns the vehicle provides; the access and potential use of a firearm inside or while entering/exiting a vehicle is a complicated problem that requires specific training to confront the non-traditional nature of fighting from or in an enclosed space. The Sage Dynamics Vehicle Defense course provides hands-on instruction and fundamental exercises for fighting in a confined environment, focusing on concepts and principles of close contact shooting and physical movement from less-than-ideal positions.


To maximize realism, this course utilizes Simunition Non-Lethal Training Ammunition and weapons to immerse the student in scenario based encounters that will provide stress-inoculation and increase both confidence and ability in the event of an actual use-of-force. This course allows students to use firearms tactics and techniques with actual firearms that have been converted to fire the Simunition FX round against skilled role players that will test their cognitive abilities and weapon skills. This is as close as you can get to an actual use of force in a training environment.
