$175

A non-refundable $100 deposit is needed to reserve your spot.

DESCRIPTION:

Class flow: MODERATE (students can expect full day of shooting and weapon manipulation from a static line) 

Foundation Handgun is designed to stress the importance of proper weapon manipulation and shooting techniques. The goal of this MDFI Foundation class is to build a strong and efficient foundation regarding the proper use and manipulation of the Handun as a defensive tool.  Without a strong foundation, any additional training is wasted time.  This class will prepare students for our "Advanced" level classes and is a mandatory prerequisite to move on with the MDFI curriculum.
