Hand-To-Gun Training


Don’t put your life in anyone else’s hands – Master moving from Hand-To-Hand Combat to Handgun Deployment, efficiently and effectively.  

Join one of the most-accomplished Competitive Shooters in the world – Rob Leatham – and Non-ballistic Weapons Expert – Steve Tarani – for a rare block of training in how to shoot faster and more accurately than the bad guy and manage a violent physical threat under extreme duress.

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn what the professionals know about personal defense! Rob Leatham and Steve Tarani – the same guys hired to teach U.S. Tier-One Government Assets – are now offering a joint-training experience you will never forget. 


Rob and Steve first met in late 2014. And it didn’t take them long to recognize the close, intertwined connection of their separate yet similar livelihoods and careers. They immediately began to discuss working together, and the design of a system that merged their highly successful worlds of self-defense and action shooting.    

What resulted, yet may forever be evolving, is their Hand-To-Gun Methodology, a unique system combining Hand-To-Hand Combat with Handgun Mastery.

Hand-to-Gun is more than training – it’s a philosophy, a practice, a mindset, a skill set, a lifestyle.
