394x114 CFS 2 mod


An Intuitive shooting program designed to help the student become more efficient during a dynamic critical incident.

If you want to carry a gun for personal protection this is the course for you.  Do not let the name fool you. The Combat Focus® Shooting Program is not a military style course. Our military services operate as groups of people working together with an expectation of the need to shoot. Combat Focus® Shooting, which could just as easily be called Dynamic Focus Shooting or any other appropriate brand name, is based on a counter ambush methodology for when the anticipation for the need to shoot is not present.  This program has been taken globally by everyone from Federal Agents, Local Law Enforcement, Special Operations Soldiers to civilians interested in protecting themselves from the bullies of the world.

This course is two full days of intense instruction and training.  No Previous Shooting Experience Required

The course will cover the following topics:

  • Fundamentals of Defensive Shooting & Intuitive Skill Development
  • Combat Accuracy
  • Lateral Motion
  • The Balance of Speed & Precision
  • The Critical Incident Reload
  • Volume of Fire
  • Realistic Training for Multiple Target Engagement
  • Understanding the Body’s Natural Reactions during a Dynamic Critical Incident.
  • The Skill Development Cycle
  • One Handed & Weak Handed Shooting
  • Non-Diagnostic Linear Malfunction Clearing
  • Shooting in Motion (When, How & Why)

Now in its 13th year, CFS is based on years of constantly evolving information about how the body works and what really happens during a Dynamic Critical Incident. It has been heavily influenced by the diverse group of instructors that are Certified to teach it and the thousands of students who have been through courses all around the world.

The Combat Focus® Shooting Course is not designed to make you the best shooter you can be on the range, rather its goal is to help you quickly develop fundamental skills that you can apply in a worst case scenario.

CFS is open to all experience levels. Learn how to develop your best possible response to the ambush.
