Concealed Carry Classes

One must have the proper MINDSET to make the best choice in any situation….

It is important to react safely and quickly if a dangerous situation arises. Ken-Rock Community Center’s primary focus of training is to prepare our students to be calm in any event.

One must have the proper SKILL to know what to do once a decision is made….

It is imperative to have the proper skills and reaction time once a decision to act is made. It is imperative to practice and train to ensure the safety of innocents.

One must have the right TOOLS to ensure safety and accuracy when they do act….

In the unfortunate event that one must fire their gun in order to protect themselves or someone else, they will need to possess the tools to ensure they are able to remain calm to maintain the safety of innocent bystanders through accuracy and integrity.
