Palisade Training Group Presents Ladies Only Asymmetric Defensive Pistol!

Asymmetric Defensive Pistol Skills may come into play when a weaker person is physically attacked by a larger, stronger, or more physically skilled violent criminal attacker or an attacker armed with a knife or  a blunt object like a claw hammer at distances in which there is a high probability that even if the defender is armed they may be injured or killed. Personal weapons such as hands, fists, and feet, knives or other cutting instruments, and blunt objects such as hammers are frequently the weapons of choice used against females at contact distances. Most armed defenders have never contemplated the need for retention shooting  techniques and skills and are likely far more vulnerable to being injured or worse in a deadly force encounter than they may be aware of.

This four-hour clinic was  expressly designed for dealing with attacks in which the assailant did not use a firearm normally employed at typical stand-off distances, and focuses on methods of using a handgun at contact distances in order to increase the odds that they can force a break in contact between them and the attacker.

Palisade Training Group lead instructor Steve Moses is a former deputy constable as well as a Texas-licensed Level 4 Personal Protection Officer with experience in executive and dignitary close protection who has studied under Tom Givens, Craig Douglas, Cecil Burch, Tim Bulot, Jerry Wetzel, Paul Sharp, Chuck Haggard, and other nationally-known weapons and tactics instructors. Moses is also a Combatives University and Relson Gracie Jiu Jitsu brown belt and a Tae Kwon Do black belt.
