Special attention will be given to the understanding of the concepts of reasonable articulable suspicion (RAS) and probable cause (PC) and their applications to the seizure of persons and property. Particular focus will be paid to how these concepts apply to the armed citizen. The legal framework for the evaluation of use of force by the courts will also be discussed. We will also pay special attention to Georgia firearms carry laws.

COMPLETED: March 25 & 26, 2017: The Law of Self Defense: Presented by Andrew Branca of The Law of Self Defense at our MARIETTA location. Build A Legally-Sound Self-Defense Strategy Customized for YOU! The value presented by the Law of Self Defense Class is considerable. Over this 1- 2 day course, and at a fraction of the cost of consulting one-on-one with a lawyer, you will learn how to build a legally-sound self-defense strategy that will:
*Minimize your vulnerability to prosecution and civil suit.
*Prepare you to win BOTH the physical AND the legal battles.
*Account for not just the letter of the law but also how it’s actually applied actual courts and prosecutors to actual people.
*Recognize what a prosecutor MUST prove in order to defeat your self-defense claim.
*“Armor yourself” against the most common legal vulnerabilities.
*Bolster your claim when defending others, and account for the strict limits on defending property.
*Learn what “Stand-Your-Ground,” the “Castle Doctrine,” *“Presumptions of Reasonableness” and “Self-defense Immunity” REALLY mean . . . and what they DO NOT mean.
*Say the right thing to 911, the first responders, and the investigative officers (pro-tip: each interaction is VERY different).

November 4 & 5, 2017: UNTHINKABLE with William Aprill of Aprill Risk Consulting and Brian Hill at our MARIETTA location. We are proud to announce a NEW joint course on instruction, available for registration immediately. What do violent criminals think of us? How do they target us? How are human monsters made and born? How can we make ourselves safer? This 2 day class will help you understand the criminal mind, your OWN mind under stress and train in multiple ares of self defense in a non-live fire environment.
WHO IS INVITED? UNTHINKABLE is for all skill levels.
This is a "thinking" class in the morning and a "doing" class in the afternoon. It is for ages 18 and above and is geared towards people with and without a GUN!!!!!
In William's fast-moving and interactive lecture participants will be led through contemporary theories and current, curated data on the process by which violent criminals select their targets for violent aggression. Particular attention will be paid to the internal mechanisms in play within the criminal psychology, the universe of signifies around "good guy" behavior, demeanor, and attributes which may actually make selection for attack more likely, as well as considerations for responsible armed citizens to mitigate this risk. Previous iterations of this material have been presented to LE agencies and private citizen groups across the US as well as international LE educational events.
Brian will be focusing on a "lighter" version of The Complete Combatant with mild non-cooperative partners (NO COMBATIVES) and a layered approach on different aspects of self defense from the first sign of danger on up to interaction with the police.
