Course Description

Day 1- 8:00 am – Midnight

Day 2- 8:00 am- 5:00pm

Having to make movement inside your home with an intruder is never advised. Even though this can put you at a major disadvantage, we recognize that there are certain circumstances when you may have to leave a safe area and make movement.

The culmination of all the core, foundation and advanced training classes we offer; MDFI’s Home Defense courses in the 360 environment of the The Site Training Facility shoot-house is where student’s capabilities and information processing are put to the test.

MDFI’s 2-Day Home Defense Class will teach you how to make movement in your home without exposing yourself unnecessarily and giving you a higher level of survivability in dealing with a home invasion type situation. Students will make multiple day and night runs through the shoot house during the two day class. Due to range requirements for noise, after 9pm low light will be conducted using simunitions provided by MDFI.

WHAT THIS CLASS IS:

This is a problem-solving class. Not a shooting class. You just happen to have a firearm with you. This is THE class to run your gear as you have it set up at home. This is the class to test your ability think, shoot and move at the same time. THIS CLASS IS HIGH-STRESS AND PHYSICALLY DEMANDING.

WHAT THIS CLASS IS NOT:

This class is not a tactical fantasy band-camp to wear cool gear, shoot a lot and take photos to post online. This class will not allow for showboats, egos, or bad weapon-handling skills. This class is not an excuse to dress up and play SWAT.

Topics Covered:

Discussion on the ‘Why’ of movement in a structure
Types of doors
Covering corners
Shooting angles
Movement in a structure
Communication
Use of white light in your home
Decision Making
