Teaching Philosophy

Rigo coaches how to use combat angles and sport science to be effective in all aspects of dealing with a threat. His education philosophy focuses heavily on mindset and body language- from the initial conversation, to the hands on phase, to gun fighting and entry principles.

Rigo consistently works with top subject matter experts to research, develop, test, and teach around a core set of scientific principles. He and the rest of our team are always pushing the limits of what we think we know.
