Active Shooter Workshop*

Chad Wilbur, owner, Martial Arts Fitness Academy
Mediterranean 6, Lower Level
Separate Fee Required – $129 (Breakfast included)
The Active Shooter Course is designed to give you a PLAN if the worst-case scenario happens to you, your loved ones or your coworkers. We first talk about building your AWARENESS and talk about the “color code of danger” and help you realize that awareness is most important. We then will cover statistics and active shooter profiles to help you understand this problem is only going to get worse before it gets better. We break down the three best ways to avoid and overcome an active shooter. Teaching your staff how to evacuate correctly. Get to a place away from danger. The second stage is teaching how to hide correctly if that’s the only option. The difference between concealment and cover. The third and final stage is what we do BEST…. teaching how to FIGHT back and disarm the attacker! That would be your final step it’s “fight or flight” time. The course then goes into detail on the disarms and teaches a variety of techniques which I will go over in our first evaluation. We show disarms from a pistol, AR 15, shotgun and knife attacks.
