About This Course:


This course arms civilians with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to determine proper use of force, protecting your home and how to win a potentially lethal encounter. Additionally, this course discusses Washington State concealed carry laws and details regarding concealed pistol licenses (CPL's).

In this class I share my real-life experiences throughout investigations of home invasions, robberies, assaults and residential burglaries. 
 

The use of force laws by citizens in Washington State are thoroughly dissected and discussed as well in class. This will include a detailed discussion on the use of lethal force. We will also discuss the differences in justified force as it pertains to persons crimes vs. property crimes.
 
I have a passion about sharing the correct information to the citizens of Washington State. The content of the course was reviewed by a prominent prosecutor and it mirrors Washington State laws on the use of force by citizens.
