The nature of some of William’s Close Quarters Combat or CQC courses and the personalized attention he provides to his students dictate that many classes are very small and on a first come first served basis.  Due to the high demand for this training we recommend that you contact us to inquire about availability and scheduling.

Currently William is one of the lead instructors that is teaching the NRA Certified Pistol Instructor course.  For more information on becoming a Certified NRA Pistol Instructor click on the button below.
