Intermediate Handgun Defense Level 3

Firearm Training Course


This is an intermediate level curriculum centered around Reality Behavior-Based Conditioning© (RBBC) as it relates to combative marksmanship. All 88 Tactical training courses are built on the core concept of RBBC. RBBC was developed from this maxim: “the study of behavior is as important as the study of tactics.” 88 Tactical courses condition an appropriate crisis response that maximizes performance while working with, instead of against, a person’s survival-oriented instincts and intuitions.

In this 4-hour course, students will develop speed and precision while taking tactical measures to better ensure their safety and make better decisions in complex environments. Intermediate Handgun Defense Level 3 will cover a wide variety of tactical and engagement exercises with a heavy emphasis on dynamic movement, use of cover, and rapid threat assessment and engagement.
