Hey all I was gonna wait to announce all this but sometimes it's better sooner than later, so here goes!

We will be opening a firearms academy this coming spring. Courses available will be everything from basic handgun handling and CCW qualification to more advanced handgun and carbine courses. Also available will be Krav Maga classes and other unarmed or non-gun classes aimed at self defense.

We have partnered with The Mako Defense Group for a soft launch in Sept when we will host their Israeli Special Forces instructors for their "Israeli Method" training




More is to come and watch for 'orev" to post up as he and I are working together personally to bring this about and are very excited to bring this style of Israeli training to the US.

More info is available here

Mako Defense: The Israeli Method | israeli special forces trainin in the US | carbine courses | pistol courses | advanced combat techniques

And Orev and I will keep you posted as we progress.

:cool:

XD militia? I'd join, we'd have to elect a Pres in the event of a necessary takeover...
INDEED. an XD/XDM militia would be EPIC. Where would we locate this compound?

EZ with the compound and militia talk. :D

Were talking legitimate real world training here, not a militia compound or anything of that nature. LOL!

I did change the wording to say "training of this style" vs "training of this level"

I don't want anyone to get the impression that we are trying to set ourselves out there as the best and only method of shooting and fighting.

Some schools do that and I find it to be a big turn off, there are lots of techniques and styles, many of them effective, others not so much.

We intend to teach the clean, simple and effective, methods developed by the Israelis through decades of living under real terrorist threat and activity.

The CrossBreed element of the group will be in Missouri.

We may do some traveling training but the plan at this point is to base the CrossBreed Academy here in SW MO

The Mako Group may partner with us to the extent that they base their training here too, but we have not made it that far in discussions.

Living close may become relative as I am hoping to have lodging facilities on site by Fall 2011

Outstanding!
I hope things go well for you Mark.

My SD & Firearms is looking for some property to do something similar. He has a GREAT team of instructors. But, he can't continue to use department ranges for "public" training.

Sounds good Mark. Glad to see someone with business that seems to be steadily expanding. Hope to be in the same boat one day.
