To survive, learn to fight. This is the advice of Geoffrey Coetzee, chief ranger at Marksman’s Nest. “Having completed basic handgun training doesn’t mean that you know how to fight. And when I say ‘fight’, I mean fighting to defend yourself and ultimately survive,” he said.

“Basic firearm training teaches you how to handle and shoot a handgun, but it doesn’t teach you how to fight. Gun owners definitely should consider developmental handgun training that teaches you how to fight with it.”

A self-defence mindset

Geoffrey defined having a self-defence mindset as having been taught to be prepared. This preparedness gives you the peace of mind knowing that you can take care of yourself mentally and physically in confrontational situations. “Only rigorous self-defence training, as presented in our CQ 1, 2 and 3 courses, gives you this capability.”

Marksman’s Nest trainees corroborate the fact that the self-defence courses have boosted their preparedness and mindsets enormously. “Being able to protect yourself in any situation not only improves your confidence but also provides reassurance. And this reassurance can be only gained if you train your body for self-defence,” said one Marksman’s Nest client.

Geoffrey reiterated that self-defence courses not only helped in conditioning you, but also help you in gaining situational awareness. “An attack can take place at any given time and you definitely won’t have the opportunity to plan. By having top-notch situational awareness, you have a major advantage. Plus, the self-defence training would have slapped your mechanical and cognitive speed into gear.”

Be a warrior

Both developmental handgun training and self-defence training also instill the spirit of a warrior spirit in you. “With our guidance, you’ll be able to develop lightning-fast fighter reflexes. Thus you’ll be able to respond to any threatening situation in a calculated manner – quickly and smartly.” Why? Because you’ll be prepared.

Not knowing how to fight back can be disastrous. But the Marksman’s Nest self-defence courses have you covered, because to survive, learn to fight.
