I'm signed up for the June 8-9 class in Gadsden Alabama.

This class will teach you how to treat a gunshot or knife wound to yourself or family member if you are injured in a fight. It could also be helpful in a non-weapons related injury.

It's taught by Dr. John Meade, who co-authored the book "Beating The Reaper" on the same subject.

Looking forward to learning a lot form this class.

I was in one of John's classes last summer in IA very good class. Will open ones eyes as to why it makes sense to have a few medical things on ones person. If you do need them you don't have time to go somewhere to get them.

I've taken two classes with John as a fellow student.

It will be my first time under him as an instructor.

After "tactical", "operator" has to be the most abused term in the English language.

Probably a good class with good stuff to know, but is there really a need to Walter Mitty it up?

No matter the word use to describe the course what it teaches is that which if you need it you better have what you need with you and know how to use it. Because calling 911 will get you and EMT only after the LEO shows. EMT will not come to your aid before LE clears the scene which is minutes away while you may only have seconds.

You may win the fight only to lose in the end because you didn't know all you needed to know.

But there is those here who think the sight of the gun will make the BG run. So why train in the uses of a gun let alone how to patch yourself up after the fight. (which will never happen)

Ok...since there are a couple of folks that are pushing PC, I vote to change the title of the thread to: "How peckerheads can patch the holes if gouged with a rusty blade or punctured with hunks of lead".... Dang, I shudda been a writer!!!

Yeah, everybody wants to jump out of flaming helicopters and burn a thousand rounds in a day from their belt fed gun....but being able to apply direct pressure and tie a tourniquet or splint a broken bone will probably be far more useful skills for them to have in every day life.

If you called it..."Saving someone from bleeding to death" no one would show up because that doesn't sound...wait for it...."TACTICAL".... enough.

Seriously though, this is stuff that works even if you are unarmed. It works in places that guns are not available. It works pretty much anywhere. Yard work accident? Check. Boy scout camping trip accident? Check. Car wreck? Check.North Hollywood style bank robbery? Check. Boston Marathon bombing? Check. Straight up 9/11 or Mumbai style MAJOR terrorist attack? Check. You may or may not be able to do anything to stop the event from happening...but if you are still alive and conscious you can probably render aid to the injured...or you can merely be a spectator. Guess which one will sleep better at night......

Looks like modified TCCC training.
I'm sure there are those of you who don't need a course like this. Many of us do:
Dr. John Meade said:
The SI Trauma Medicine family of classes will teach you all the info that is taught in the various military classes (Combat Lifesaver up to TCCC), plus much more. In my classes, you will incorporate live fire and team tactics. You start with TMCO, which emphasizes the lone guy protecting himself in a CCW situation. Progress to ATM, with much more involved medical procedures. Culminate with TCCM, which is my version of TCCC, but even more radical.
Here is a review of the class as taught recently by Dr. Keith Seto:
