Shooter/Fighter Matrix-1: The Fundamentals | April 26-28, 2024 | Fort Honey Badger, Jacksonville, TX


NOTES: This class is regular 2 day “Shooter/Fighter Matrix-1” 16 hour learning block PLUS a third day of 6 hour “evaluate and address” block, designed to examine lessons learned and issues exposed in previous 2 days of the course. This class is a very important primer for Shooter/Fighter Matrix -2 and -3- “Advanced” and “The Specialist” classes. 

This course is about self evaluation. Self reflection. Re-calibration. And achieving actionable competence. 

Charting out individualized, accurate, relevant and objective matrix of ones interdisciplinary competence within the realm of a violent encounter with firearms takes methodical approach, which provides one with clear picture of hierarchical order of training priorities. 

Forward Training Concepts “Shooter/Fighter Matrix-1” class is a two-day, 16 hour live fire course, designed to facilitate transition between the two distinct realms. 

This course takes the path of first defining where each student stands as a shooter and as a fighter with the gun. Through thoughtfully designed drills, each student will be able to diagnose individual issues and problem areas. Drills gradually and progressively will take students from the square one way range shooting realm into a much more complex and chaotic realm of a gunfight. Attributes and components of the distinct stages of actions within the gunfight will be introduced in order to not only evaluate and diagnose, but to expose and eliminate dogmatic habits that impede ones ability to function with efficiency and robustness in a fight. 

In two intense days of learning and training, each student will be able to gather enough raw data and relevant results to be able to quantify his/her own competency as a shooter and as a gunfighter.
