Florian Lahner, International instructor for special police and military units

Blades, cutting and thrusting weapons are particularly dangerous at extremely close range. The use of the firearm alone does not lead to defensive success. Rather, the measures must be embedded in sensible timing, the right tactics and the choice of operational resources and weapon system.

These presentations/training sessions are about a critical/realistic assessment of the danger and options available to gun bearers and non-firearm bearers of authorities.
The realistic perspectives of a defence, the possibilities and limits of the use of a firearm, alternative options and possible solutions are presented.

The workshop is designed to get first hand input and introduction to the concepts and allows for training under the guidance of the trainer.
