An insight into our programs from our Director of Training.
When I started MTT, I wanted to develop a program that would help prepare individuals for combat. I did not want to start a firearm academy. I saw the need to integrate the warrior mindset, physical fitness, combat marksmanship, individal and team tactics under realistic training conditions.
The last criteria proved to be the greatest challenge in establishing our programs. Our country has become so risk averse, that very few training institutions allow warriors to "train for the fight." Firearms proficiency has replaced combat training. At least two (if not more) generations of shooters, police, and military personnel believe that marksmanship proficiency with a firearm makes them a warrior.
Why train with MTT?
MTT allows you to train in the path of a warrior. Combat is dangerous. It does not take place on a firing line. To sanitize all elements of danger from training takes away one of the fundamental tools necessary for success in combat - The ability to manage and harness fear. Fear of failure. Fear of injury. And yes, the fear of death.
MTT programs will allow you to hone your warriors edge through a variety of classes and experiences. I encourage you to contact me directly to discuss these classes to determine whether they are right for you. Additionally, I welcome questions about MTT safety protocols as our training is radically different from most firearm schools.
