Coup de Main:

our students to receive training from instructors that not only have the “paper”
credentials, but the real life credentials that can offer more to our students
from their personal experiences under duress. Each instructor we have is one or
more of the following; former military, private security contractor and certified
law enforcement officer instructor with SWAT/SRT as a minimum requirement.
