Charlie Bravo Six is hosting me in March for a four hour combination pepper spray and mini baton class. This is the ultimate class for anyone looking to hone his or her less lethal weapons skills. It’s also ideal for spouses who may not be in to guns or high school/college age students who are prohibited from carrying a handgun. The course description is below:
Mini Baton and Pepper Spray Class
Join us on Sunday, March 23 1014, as we welcome guest instructor, Greg Ellifritz for his Mini Baton and Pepper Spray Class.
This one-day class teaches students the skills they need to bridge the gap between empty hand and lethal force responses. Topics covered will be :
– Selection of chemical irritants
– Formulations and delivery systems
– Acquisition and deployment of chemical sprays
– Decontamination procedures
– Striking with the mini baton
– Pressure point baton controls
– Escaping common grabs and holds using the baton
This class is suitable for anyone, regardless of age or physical conditioning. It will be a combination of lecture, practical exercises, and optional force-on-force simulations. Students will not be sprayed with chemical irritants!
This is an ideal class for citizens who are unable to carry a firearm in some locations or for law enforcement officers looking to improve their less-lethal skills. All students will be provided with their own mini batons and inert chemical irritant spray containers.
I hope to see you there!
