Training-Ladder-VM---NoTxtOur training is based upon our own gunfighting methodology developed to convert novice gun owners into a competent defenders of life and property. The Pulse O2DA "Training Ladder" is at the core of our training resources. Our training ladder moves a firearms novice through four stages of skill development:

1. Developing basic firearms fundamentals on handgun, shotgun, and rifle.
2. Applying these skills to individual maneuver for self-defense.
3. Developing team tactics necessary to defend business, church, and school.
4. Learning small unit tactics for defense of neighborhoods and communities.

The training ladder begins with mastering basic handgun manipulations in a personal defense scenario. Then it adds shotgun and rifle to the personal defense skills inventory, followed by introducing individual tactics for defense in home and on the street. Next are team tactics necessary to defend a single location like a school, church, or business. The training ladder culminates with small unit tactics for the defense of a community; like a neighborhood, village, or small town.

Building your own personal defense network begins by understanding that you stand at the center of your own network. You can start to envision your own network by taking an inventory of the roles you play everyday; as men (or women), spouses, parents, church members, PTA members, employees, or business owners and citizens of local communities. Each one of your roles is a potential node on your network.

Your network will include other individuals. It is critical that you create an "EFAS" environment within your network. In other words; select simpatico individuals with whom you share intuition, trust, vision, and initiative.

Here are the steps necessary to building your own personal defense network.

1. Start with yourself. Purchase a handgun and get quality training. At the bare minimum you need basic proficiency utilizing a handgun for self-defense in order to be of value to your network. Learn how to defend your home and family from lethal threats.

2. Next, think about your immediate network. Start with your business or place of employment. Investigate the possibilities for your business, or your employer to undertake the development of a private defense network.

3. Continue your outreach with your church and school affiliations. Do you feel safe? Are your children safe? Investigate the possibilities for your church or school to develop their own private defense network.

4. Conclude with your community or "territory." More specifically your geographic location generally defined as a neighborhood or other small community. Your territory/community is small scale, you should be able to cover the extent of the territory on foot. It is probably under the control or influence of a neighborhood association or village council. In many cases your territory/community will encompass your home, business or employer, church, and school. In other cases it may include simply a residence and church or school. But in all cases, territory/community begins with where you live and your association with the immediate geography.

A fully developed private defense network integrates individuals, businesses, schools and churches, community-wide.
