Most schools, government buildings, churches and corporate settings have adopted the “Run, Hide, Fight” response to an active shooter incident. I personally believe this is a good starting place for a conversation about a solid, relevant and effective response plan to an active shooter incident. The concepts of “Run and Hide” are virtually self-explanatory. However, the “Fight” portion of the plan is vague and open for interpretation. No one really knows what that means. Without guidance or an established protocol this becomes very subjective. Enter YouTactical and our FIGHT BACK program. We have trained over 3000 teachers and hundreds of corporate clients how to FIGHT BACK and win. We teach you how to make a decisive plan and execute an attack on the attacker before he knows what is happening. Do nothing (in a closed environment) and die. Jump into action and fight for your life and you have a significant chance of not only surviving, but winning! This was recently proven by the Waffle House hero, James Shaw who tackled and disarmed the active shooter. In a split second he made a decision and acted on it. No “What Ifs”, just action! Our training is consistently summed up by students in one word; EMPOWERING!
