Gentlemen and Ladies,

I received a call today from an individual that was concerned that our LOW LIGHT GUNFIGHTINGŪ Course was somehow intended as a special "attack" at someone's training organization.

Honestly, I was dumbfounded. That someone would consider that we would spend the time to design a course, research curriculum, spend the time conducting market research on our customers, and then go to the extremes to actually schedule three classes(several more dates are coming soon)simply in order to somehow attack them is ludicrous, and indicative of jealousy and a lack of humility.

Why did Suarez International USA develop a LOW LIGHT GUNFIGHTINGŪ course? One reason only -

Suarez International is committed to provide our students with the most modern, combat-proven techniques and tactics to win a gunfight.
Hardly an intended attack on anyone.

One thing that we do which is different from other academies, and perhaps gives heart-burn to those guys, is that we DO NOT RESTRICT OUR COURSES TO LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSONNEL as some other schools do.

We do not begrudge those who do not wish to train civilians for philosophical or other reasons, but we simply do not agree with their philosophy. A nation that does not trust its citizens with knowledge will soon not trust them with weapons, and then not with other rights.

Our belief is that civilian personnel deserve to know how to defend themselves as well, if not better, as any uniformed personnel, and we will not hold anything back from them in our courses.

Our class is an answer to the demands of the 21st Century training industry, and to requests from our civilian students for training that was heretofore unavailable to them. Period. I think we've answered that request and demand quite well.
