Introductory two day course
The course "Introduction to the Chapman Method of Practical Defensive Shooting" is geared toward the beginning to intermediate shooter. However the more experienced and those who compete in IDPA, IPSC and similar venues will find the course to be of considerable value.
The program is structured to minimize classroom time and focuses on practical hands-on and individual range instruction. A brief on-range lecture and demonstration introduces each section. At the conclusion of the demonstrations, students then perform practical range exercises with as much individual instruction as possible. Each segment begins with fundamentals and progresses to more complicated and demanding exercises.
The Academy's instructional technique begins with single shots on single targets and leads to multiple shots on multiple targets. Then transitions to shooting while moving, shooting at moving target and shooting from cover.
This program emphasizes grip, sight picture, and trigger control through specific exercises to a maximum distance of 15 yards. Most defensive situations occur at distances of 2 to 4 yards so we include a section on eye/hand coordinated shooting at short range.
Class size is kept small to facilitate a high degree of quality, personalized and one on one instruction to insure a full understanding of the principles being taught.
