This course is taught by David S Jenkins, one of 21 Certified Handgun Combatives Instructors in the USA.

Dave completed a rigorous training certification course under Dave Spaulding, the founder of Handgun Combatives, in order to be able to provide this training. When you attend this course, you are getting the Handgun Combatives mindset, skills, and the benefit of over 60 years of combined experience purely dedicated to defensive firearms training.


This course focuses on those skills everyone must master to shoot the handgun well with an early emphasis on combat. Others call them “fundamentals” but we understand they are absolutely necessary…ESSENTIAL!


Hard emphasis will be placed on the human contact with the handgun; proper grip, trigger control and body position while deploying the handgun to a threat. The course will progress at the rate of the student body, so do not be hesitant to select this course!


This is where it all starts and you will be a better combative shooter when you leave.
