Defensive Simulation Training (DST)

Taught By Prime Combat Training

Course Cost: $160(+Tax)
Course Length: 4.5 Hours

Want to experience real shoot house training previously only available to military and law enforcement? This is the first step in bridging the gap between range training and real self defense. This course will take place in our expansive professional shoot house, located at The Louisville Armory. The 4 1/2 hour course will start with a presentation on physiology during an altercation and the basic tenets of room clearing. Students will then train the basics of “slicing the pie” and tactical considerations inside of a building. The last portion of the course will be live scenarios in the shoot house where students will have to face live role players and make critical decisions on the fly using UTM guns (realistic training weapons that shoot non lethal marking projectiles).


Participants in this class must have previous experience and be comfortable with the use of handguns.

Israeli CT (Counter Terrorist) Pistol Course

Taught By Prime Combat Training

Course Cost: $160(+Tax)

Learn how to shoot a pistol like they do in the Israeli Special Forces.

This 4 hour course teaches the basic building blocks of the Israeli method of handgun shooting. While working on foundational skills, such as grip, stance, magazine changes, transitioning between targets and some movement students will also be introduced to disruptive stimuli. This is a very important aspect of the way combative shooting is taught in the Israel Defense Forces. The skills covered in this course are important for new shooters to learn and for experienced shooters to train on a regular basis. Tourniquet drills will also be incorporated.

Required equipment:

 Safety glasses/hearing protection

 Semi auto pistol in good working order. *If you do not have your own gun you may rent one from Louisville Armory.

Israeli CT (Counter Terrorist) Rifle Course

Taught By Prime Combat Training

Course Cost: $160(+Tax)
Course Length: 4 Hours

Learn to operate a rifle like the IDF special units.

The AR platform has long been the primary weapon of choice of many modern western militaries, and for good reason. This four hour course teaches the fundamentals of the Israeli Counter Terrorist Shooting Method used in the IDF. We will cover stance and grip, different shooting positions, overcoming malfunctions, multiple targets, movement and more. The difference between this course and others is that the focus is less on stationary marksmanship skills and more on the combative aspect of weapon handling. Shooters will be exposed to distractions and low levels of induced stress in order to promote action during the time of need.

Required equipment:

 Safety glasses/hearing protection

 Carbine style rifle in good working order with either iron sights or aiming device

 At least three working magazines
