Our Defensive Carbine I is a 3 day training event located in the beautiful NRA Whittington Center.  Focusing on a holistic approach to the defensive implementation of the semi-automatic rifle, the WU School of Defensive Carbine I works to instill a strong fundamental base of understanding in Internal Ballistics, External Ballistics, Terminal Ballistics, Marksmanship Techniques and Optical Adjustments as it relates to the Defensive Implementation of the Semi-Automatic Rifle.

 The semi-automatic rifle is built for movement and the Defensive Carbine I Course will create the confidence for virtual, unrestricted movement regardless of the environment.  The Movement Drills and Principles of Cover are designed to maximize a Consistent-Efficient-Safe Defensive Posture while putting us in the position of advantage in the Resolution of the Threat. 

 Defensive Carbine I Course is very dynamic but is open to all ages and physical abilities.   The Defensive Academy Courses are designed to train to the individuals’ limits to not take away from the information presented.
