Suarez International Classes in South Carolina - Spring 2011
Alex Nieuwland and I have a pretty good slate of Suarez International classes lined up in South Carolina this spring. Here's what we've got scheduled in Columbia so far.
Fighting Rifle Skills - February 12-13
All training must begin with fundamentals. This fundamental rifle class is designed to prep you for the more advanced courses such as Close Range Rifle Gunfighting and Advanced Rifle Gunfighting. Through a carefully designed and detailed no nonsense curriculum we are able to bring you up to a level of skill in a short two day class that previously would take over 4 or 5 days to achieve at other schools. You will learn a complete presentation of the combative technique of the rifle which will put you in good standing for any defensive situations you may encounter in the real world. No experience or prior training is needed to attend this class and it is specially suitable for beginners.
Introduction to Point Shooting - February 26
This class is designed to take the handgun owner and give them the essential point shooting skills in a short four hour session. Students will learn point shooting at close ranges as well as get a view into how these skills integrate into existing marksmanship based methods. This course is ideal for the new gun owner or those interested in learning to point shoot defensively.
Defensive Pistol Skills - March 5-6
This comprehensive fundamentals class is designed to prep you for the more advanced courses such as Close Range Gunfighting. Through a carefully designed and detailed curriculum we are able to bring you up to a level of skill in a short two day class that previously would take over 4 or 5 days to achieve at other schools.
You will learn a complete presentation of the modern combative technique of the pistol which will put you in good standing for any defensive situations you may encounter in the real world. No experience or prior training is needed to attend this class and it is specially suitable for beginners, or as a tune-up for accomplished shooters.
Shotgun Gunfighting - March 26-27
The shotgun is the best CQB weapon in existence today. This dynamic course presents a reality based, aggressive, close quarters combative method of deploying the shotgun. Most shotgun schools spend a great deal of time discussing modifications and additions to the shotgun, or try to turn this CQB weapon into some sort of a rifle. Such is happily NOT the case in SHOTGUN GUNFIGHTING! In this class you will learn what the shotgun is really for, and perhaps as important, learn the weapon’s limitations. After a brief overview of the fundamentals and a skill check, we progress quickly to advanced reality-based drills. This is the Shotgun version of Close Range Gunfighting. All of its done on the move! Whether you are a private citizen, a police officer, or a soldier – if you rely on a shotgun for self-protection, this course is essential.
Point Shooting Gunfight Skills - April 2-3
This class is designed to teach you the entire point shooting system taught at Suarez International and prep you for the more advanced courses such as Point Shooting Progressions. Through a carefully detailed curriculum you will learn the components of various point shooting methods and integrate them into your existing skill sets. This knowledge will put you in good standing for any defensive situations you may encounter in the real world. No experience or prior training is needed to attend this class and it is specially suitable for beginners.

It's up on the SI site: Close Range Gunfighting in Columbia, SC on May 7-8.
This is our flagship course and goes as far as you can safely go on a square range with live-fire pistols. The dynamic curriculum surpasses the traditional handgun methods commonly taught in most institutions and focuses of the use of the pistol in aggressive close range applications likely in individual civilian street encounters.
The class begins with a tune-up of the fundamentals, then we progress quickly to new skills such as Proactive and Reactive Manipulations, Shooting While Moving Off The X, Reality-Based Multiple Hostiles Engagement, 360 degree CQB Movement, Danger-Close Fighting, Bilateral Shooting, 360 degree After Action Assessment Methods, and Integrating the Flashlight and Other Tools into the Firing Platform. This is the life-saving material that is often ignored in many other programs. In two days, you will receive more information than most armed professionals ever get!
We must point out that THIS COURSE IS NOT FOR THE NOVICE SHOOTER. If you have not received basic instruction, or have a question about your skill level, please call us first.
DURATION: 2 days
AMMUNITION: Approximately 500 rounds (minimum)
YOU NEED TO BRING: Spare clothing appropriate to the weather, lunch/snacks and water (minimum of 1 gallon per person) for the entire day, baseball or other style hat, sun screen, bug repellant, allergy medication (if needed), chair (if you have a problem with sitting on the ground, note taking paper/pen/pencil and a boo boo kit (bandaids, gauze pads, antiseptic wipes, antibiotic ointment and tape)
