Force on Force/Force on role player training


How Does Force on Force Training Work?

The speed at which the attack occurs forces quick decision making and problem-solving with a gun in hand. The majority of violent encounters occur from three feet to nine feet. The attack lasts an average lasts three seconds with an average of three rounds fired.

The trainee will learn that violence often occurs at arm’s length. And getting their gun into action is more difficult than drawing from concealment at the range. The role of the ‘attacker’ is to move quickly and unpredictably as the scenario unfolds. The ‘attacker’ may be shooting at the trainee or coming at them with a knife or club.

Each scenario is designed to put the trainee in a situation that induces stress and fear. The brain begins to perform at a higher level of output each time a stressful situation occurs. The process of repeatedly training at a high level of stress and fear inoculates the trainee against deadly force levels of threat and the level of performance rises.



Scenarios that we design use a combination of specialty training ammunition, firearms and Shock knives that are non-lethal. We adhere to strict safety protocol to ensure a safe training environment.


What is Force on Role Player?

This training gives the student a training firearm and specialty ammunition to defend from the role player. The specialty ammunition contains a colored soap that is released on impact letting the student know they have hit their mark. The role player is a trained actor with a specific script to follow. They understand safety protocol and ensure guidelines are followed.
