Class Flow:PHYSICALLY & MENTALLY INTENSE This is a Force-On-Force class. You may be put into situations where you are shot at by UTM (Ultimate Training Munition) projectiles while wearing issued safety gear (see: they hurt / sting).
We train and train and train for what will hopefully never happen. As we live and work to enjoy our life of liberty and freedom, there is always someone who is willing to try and take that from us. That being said, life is not all about worrying about all of the bad, but it does warrant the conscious thought that bad things can occur and that being as prepared as possible is far better than never readying ourselves.
MDFI’s The Human Element will put you, your training, your life experiences, the way you interact with others and your environment all to the test.
WHAT THIS CLASS IS:
The ultimate problem-solving class. There are no more paper targets. You and your actions will determine the outcome of this class. This is the class for the person who wants a litmus test of their place as a responsibly-armed citizen. You will test your use of verbal skills, intermediate force and lethal force skills, articulation and understanding of constitutional use of force. This class is about a desire for feedback and improving yourself as a responsible member of society. You will be immersed in situations with a cadre of role players to truly test how you deal with realistic life scenarios that encompass all use of force levels and types of situations a person may encounter.
WHAT THIS CLASS IS NOT:
This is not paintball. This is not time to play shoot ‘em up with UTMs for fun. If you are an unsafe gun handler, lack a proper skills foundation, or have poor emotional control don’t even hover near the register button. This is for the serious student looking to better themselves.
NOTE: THIS CLASS IS UTM/SIM ONLY AT AN INDOOR SHOOTHOUSE SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO SIMULATE COMMON OCCUPIED STRUCTURES. LIVE WEAPONS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED* Please carry to class as legally warranted. Cadre will notify students of proper range-safety procedures prior to training.

Incredible opportunity to audit the true state of your abilities. Many of us train and excel at shooting, some of us train our verbal agility. Rarely do we have a chance to combine all of that with decision-making in a dynamic simulated environment where we don't have complete information, and "processor speed" determines (simulated) life or death. This is that class. The scenarios are designed to address specific themes encountered in human confrontation. Difficulty amplifies when multiple characters come into play, and of course there is often not one correct answer. A must-do class for anyone serious about being an asset to yourself, your family, your community, and society.
MTAC is a versatile facility; MDFI has fantastic role-players and well-crafted scenarios. I've been through a lot of scenario-based training in the past and this class was amazing. It gets you out of your comfort zone, but that's how you grow and learn, which is critical when you're potentially making life-or-death decisions.
This is a great culminating class. After completing many MDFI courses this is the course to put everything you have learned to the test in every day scenarios with role players and simunition. I have trained with many different trainers from military to law enforcement, NONE compare to Trek's knowledge, presentation and constructive feedback. Trek's focus on safety and application make him and his cadre a top tier trainer in the United States. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to put their skills and mindset to the test.
This class is top notch. The role players do such a good job allowing you to really get into the scenarios and make them as real as possible. Everytime I take a class with MDFI I am amazed at how well the classes are set up and organized and how good the instruction is. Trex and his cadre are the best instructors out there. It was helpful to see which areas of my training were able to kick-in as a reflex, but also to know what I need to work on next. This class really humbled me and showed me how much more I still have to learn. I can’t wait for The Human Element 2!
I just wanted to extend a sincere thanks for the Human Element experience this past weekend. The course was the best I've taken across disciplines. It really exemplifies the thought, work, and experience you've put into the MDFI curriculum.
The cadre were a key part of the class, and their dedication to the students was incredible. I really appreciate their long hours and hard work.
The G19 UTM slide also ran flawlessly -- didn't have a single malfunction.
