We try to keep the Tactical Conference centrally located in the US, so that as many practitioners as possible may attend. That’s why it is usually in Memphis or Little Rock or other central location. There are a number of committed students of The Art in the Pacific Northwest, which is still a really long way from Tennessee or Arkansas. To accommodate them, we will be holding a regional conference at The Firearms Academy of Seattle (FAS) in July 2018. FAS is located between Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon, and is a very nice training facility with numerous ranges and a modern classroom.
The dates are July 27-29, 2018, Friday through Sunday. This will be a smaller event than the national conference, with about 100 attendees, plus staff and trainers. We have an impressive array of trainers presenting two hour and four hour blocks of instruction, including live fire with handgun, shotgun and carbine; classroom instruction on a variety of topics; and hands-on training in empty hands skills and immediate trauma care. The trainers include Tom & Lynn Givens, Massad Ayoob, Marty Hayes, John Holschen, Lee Weems, John Hearne, John Murphy, Gabe White, Tiffany Johnson, Karl Rehn, Cecil Burch, Dr. William Aprill, Lori Bigley, Dr. Sherman House, and Belle McCormack. That’s a total of sixteen well respected trainers presenting instruction over three full days of training! There will also be a defensive pistol match concurrent with the training events. Advance registration is required.
The trainers present two-hour to four-hour blocks of instruction in their area of expertise. Click here to download the full schedule. You may attend whichever blocks you desire, and as many blocks as time allows over a three-day period. Attendance is open to adults who believe competent training is important and who wish to advance their knowledge of the defensive arts.
