    Warrior Skills Camp 2010

    WARRIOR SKILLS CAMP
    BLAIRSVILLE, GA
    JULY 1-6, 2010

    Early in American history, learning to shoot was akin to chopping wood and feeding livestock. America was a frontier society. You couldn't call the police if you were having trouble with a neighbor. Guns were practical tools of personal self defense. Shooting was considered just a part of growing up.

    However, by the time the 20th century was drawing to a close, political action groups and federal gun laws made firearm ownership complicated, extremely restrictive, and very expensive. In addition, school-related mass murders involving firearms gave the liberal, anti-gun media additional fuel to feed the already escalating hysteria that gun ownership should not remain in the hands of its citizenry. Shooting skills were becoming equated with criminal and terrorist activities and the number of “responsible” gun venues had dwindled to a handful.

    Today, our fears may not only be from those that cross our borders to break laws, harm innocents, and injure defenseless people, it may well be nestled deep within the coffers of big business, wrapped in the trimmings of social programs, hidden in ideals of bail-outs and wealth redistribution or disguised in the agendas of special-interest groups. In essence, we are giving the government the freedom to be a terrorist in the true sense of the word.

    And where is this leaving the next generation? If our legacy is one which is seriously lacking in resolve and determination, then our future holds little hope for our children. At a minimum, we need to teach our children the skills to protect themselves from bullying, molestation, assault and abduction. Knowing these skills will not only increase their belief in themselves as being powerful, competent and valuable people but they will be better equipped to handle critical situations and circumstances as adults.

    The training available at the Warrior Skills Camp is designed to enhance one’s level of self-protection and confidence regardless of age, abilities, or walks of life. The capacity to handle various combative environments such as drug or gang related behavior, the active shooter scenario in a public setting, ramped thievery or looting during another Katrina-type disaster, or even terrorist activities on our own shores can best be learned through the training offered at the Warrior Skills Camp.

    This training will foster an inner assurance for both adults and youth through these key enablers:
    • Experience and knowledge through various skills-at-arms
    • Highly practical self-defense techniques
    • Training as a family unit
    • Important life-saving and survival skills
    • Exciting physical challenges
    • Partner training and team problem solving

    Adults will be challenged through their choice of classes including pistol and rifle workshops, street medicine and trauma care, response to edged-weapon attacks, team tactics and others. In addition, some classes will be set aside for the ladies only and will deal with topics such as basic pistol, rifle and shotgun, and the Refuse to Be A Victim Program and “Not Without A Fight.”

    Youth classes will cover topics including first aid for teens and basic awareness and self defense issues. From the personal safety perspective, the classes will address the most common assaults faced by youth today. They will learn very workable responses to these assaults and become armed with practical tools and the knowledge to use them appropriately.

    This year’s special guest will be Tony Nester of Ancient Pathways. Tony will be conducting classes in basic survival skills, traps and snares, wild plants and an introductory class in mantracking, evasion and trapping. Tony is also considering an overnight class where you learn to construct and sleep in a survival encampment. Tom Sotis of AMOK! will also be back presenting exciting new knife material. Other Suarez International Staff instructors will also be presenting blocks of instruction allowing them to debut and promote new material. These include:

    • Dan Agakian - advances in the area of team-tactics
    • Eric Pfleger - H2H4CCW - fighting skills designed for the common citizen
    • Karl Johnson - tactical field medicine and rapid trauma assessment
    • Steve Collins – development of a PSD program including live-fire exercises
    • Al Lipscomb – field communications and computer security
    • Randy Harris – a fresh look at vehicle gunfighting and training with snubbies
    • Doug Little – fundamentals of low-light and a Use of Lethal Force seminar
    • Chris Upchurch (yours truly) – Scenario Based Force on Force
    • Trey Hudson – OPSEC, History of Terrorism and Domestic Terrorist Threats

    Additional classes and activities for individuals and families alike will also be conducted concurrently allowing a break from the more structured series of events. These include canoe and kayak lessons (and a river trip in the area of the ’96 Olympics), climbing wall, paint ball, and challenge courses, wilderness survival skills, and horseback riding.

    These learning experiences are conducted within a controlled environment both at the camp and a neighboring live-fire range. All activities will be conducted under the supervision of experienced instructors and with the participation of camp staff to assist in the youth and children’s programs.

    Training of this nature may someday be curtailed by legislation and the ability to attend will become increasingly more difficult. Make the effort today for both yourself and your family to become better prepared for the uncertainties of tomorrow.

    Warrior Skills Camp is basically a smorgasbord of Suarez International trainers, plus Tom Sotis and Tony Nestor. More than half a dozen instructors come together to offer a wide variety of short classes on self-defense and related topics. *Students can sign up for two day blocks that include training, room and board, with food and accomodations are provided by Camp Jabez. *There are three, 3-4 hour class blocks per day (morning, afternoon, and evening). You can stick with one instructor for a whole two-day block, or jump around and take a team tactics class form Dan Agakian, a vehicle gunfighiting seminar from Randy Harris, and an AMOK! knife fighting seminar from Tom Sotis.

    I will be giving a scenario based force-on-force class on the afternoon of Tuesday, July 6th. *This class will give students a chance to play out realistic self-defense scenarios against live opponents in force-on-force. This is not primarily intended to test your shooting, or gunhandling, or even your dynamic movement*skills*(though it will do all of those things). It is intended to make youthink your way through a fight. It is a chance to exercise your observation and decision making*skills*in a real, dynamic environment against active opponents. This is where everything you’ve learned, read, and discussed about winning the fight comes together as a whole. Can you come up with a plan of action in the moment you have to make a decision? Can you execute that plan effectively? Can you handle it when (not if) things don’t go as planned? This is where you can find out.

    This is going to be an outstanding event! I've trained with half of the scheduled instructors and Rick Klopp, the organizer, is a very good friend of mine.

    This is the second year for this event and proves to be bigger and better than last year. I have no doubt that this yearly event will become bigger and better every year.

    The Northern Mountains of Georgia are absolutely beautiful. The venues that these events are held will leave you begging to come back. Rick has hosted me three times and it is my favorite place to travel to for training.

    I would also like to send out a big congratulations to Blackeagle (Chris Upchurch) for his new position as a Suarez International Instructor and for earning a chance to train along side some outstanding instructors. Really nice job and really well written OP.

    Thanks Roger. In this case though, I can't take credit for the OP. That's Rick Klopps work, I just reposted it here for him.
