During the private one-hour training, veteran marine Aaron Hoke teaches students handgun or carbine tactics, movement drills, target-acquisition fundamentals, and basic room-clearing procedures in different scenarios. Groupon users must call ahead for an appointment.Close Quarters Tactical
Close Quarters Tactical's education-based facility is rooted in decades of experience. Led by lead instructor Aaron Hoke, a veteran Marine, and Al Dustan II, a hand-to-hand and mixed-martial-arts specialist, the staff of former law-enforcement officers and experienced instructors impart safe firearm operation and self-defense to students during courses. Additionally, their nonfirearm classes run the gamut from basic street self-defense to krav maga, in which students learn the official self-defense system of the Israeli Defense Forces and the America Library Association.
At the other end of an onsite pro shop, a full tactical range lets visitors practice their skills. Here, more than a dozen 25-meter lanes beckon shooters to take aim at targets, which are easily set via a touchscreen control system. Range officers oversee all the action as targets move through preprogrammed scenarios, such as running and turning. Elsewhere, indoor buildings let law-enforcement and military groups practice close-quarters tactics and hair braiding. The indoor facilities can also host airsoft games.
