For the law abiding citizen that is dead serious about prevailing over crisis events that the lesser trained individual will not survive, RACS is the seminar for you! Taught by an international level trainer of law enforcement instructors, RACS is a high-powered, fast-paced, classroom style seminar supported by dynamic visuals (over 600 slides), 50+ unforgettable video clips, and startling live demonstrations. Far surpassing many aspects of conventional law enforcement training; RACS gives you essential guidance to help you develop the cognitive and psychomotor skills necessary to emerge victorious in a life-threatening encounter. The most crucial components of the RACS Seminar are applicable to not only defense against acts of violence, but to accidents, and natural disasters as well.

Perpetually updated, upgraded, and revised, RACS is an eclectic, synergistic collection of preeminent, cutting edge, state-of-the-art essential principles; integrated with entertaining teaching analogies and real world examples. Incorporating preeminent tactical training material developed by some of the world's premier instructor/trainers, RACS covers a wide spectrum of critical tactics, techniques, and concepts to help optimize your performance under the gravest of circumstances. There's a reason RACS attendees have traveled from: MO, IN, OH, MI, PA, CT, MD, NY, FL, and Canada; to the Dundee, Michigan Cabela's to attend. It's not just a seminar; it's an experience that may save your life!

The original RACS acronym was for Realistic Advanced Combatives Seminar. and required all attendees to already have their concealed carry license. However, RACS subject matter has evolved and expanded over the last eleven years. In addition to armed and unarmed combative principles, foundational topics also include: detection of danger, avoidance and evasion of violent conflict, as well as other top-tier personal safety, skill-building, and training concepts. Due to the seminar's evolution and the continual upgrades and revisions, we felt the moniker Realistic Advanced Critical Skills is now a more accurate descriptor. At the repeated request of many of our attendees, we have dropped the “for-CCW-holders-only” requirement to attend. Many people have told us that if their spouse or loved ones could attend, RACS would help them understand why concealed carry can be critical. We believe that is correct, and this seminar will not only help keep them safer; but help them make better-informed decisions about the responsibilities and realities of being armed and/or unarmed.

RACS does not encourage or condone "vigilante justice." We will always recommend that you avoid or evade violent conflict, but the reality of the world today is this. The day may come where you are forced to fight for you and your family’s lives. We want you to be better prepared for the terrible day that we all hope will never come to pass.
