If you use a firearm or blade on the job or carry for self-defense, you owe it to yourself to practice good weapon retention and situational awareness
Weapons retention is used anytime a threat attempts to uses physical force in order to take your weapon and use it against you. During this type of situation your sympathetic nervous system goes into fight or flight mode. This creates a deadly force situation that puts you and/or others at risk of serious bodily harm or death. Being able bodied and prepared for this type of situation is paramount, addressing the threat immediately could be live saving.
The concept behind our retention training is leverage, not brute force. A small framed armed citizen can easily be overpowered when matched force to force. However, gaining leverage allows a small person to move a mountain.
Urban Tactical instructors have put together a weapon retention program to give you the tools to gain leverage defend yourself against any threat.
