Class Details

Often times our firegrounds can become complex myriads of tactics and tasks, when in actuality two pillars- Search and Fire Attack are all that it takes for a successful outcome. This class will cover in detail both Search and Fire Attack using a Smart/Aggressive mindset that is backed by Experience & Research. This interactive video based discussion will help students decide what�s faster- taking the problem away from the victim or taking the victim away from the problem.
