Dear Defensive Shooter, Warrior, Defender:

My book, Your Defensive Handgun Training Program is a cutting edged functional training program designed to develop the skills needed to survive a high stress encounter while using the most commonly carried weapon system in the U.S., the handgun. If you are armed and carry a handgun daily (CCW holders, Law Enforcement Officers, etc.), get the tools to prepare yourself for the fight of your life. This book is your answer!  
While there are numerous "tactical" handgun books out there, some with good material, most do not address the "how to train" question. This book is different, and includes a full training program including training trills and a schedule to follow. The techniques in this book can be applied to any type of handgun, so no matter what you carry, this program is for you!  
Training drills or technique alone do not address the complex needs of someone during a high stress encounter where lethal force might be needed, and this book contains an entire program dedicated to all aspects of training for a fight.  
          • Carry Gun Selection and Modification
          • Legal Considerations 
          • Mental Preparation
          • Physical Preparation
          • Firearm Skills Development
          • Alternate Methods of Training
          • The Training Design Cycle
          • Marksmanship and Manipulation Techniques
          • Close Quarters Techniques
          • Low Light Techniques
          • And much more!
As a professional trainer and shooter, I have spent my entire life training and teaching what I cover in this program. To stay in line with how I teach, I will address you in the first person, as if you're here with me and we're training together. I feel that this is the best way for me to relay information as efficiently as possible.
I tend to focus more on the fundamentals of training than specific techniques themselves. Although this book does contain a section on technique, I promised myself when I started this project that this would not be another “Here is how to do a draw or reload” book. Rather, it is a manual on understanding the concepts of high performance training methods and a complete program to hit your self-defense goals. 
I'll show you how to assess different techniques so you can pick the right ones based on your dynamics and to fit your personal style. What works for me may not work for you, and what works for you now may not work for you in a year from now. Technique is (and always should be) evolutionary.
Until Then - Train Hard!
-Mike S.

Chapter 10: Documentation and Modification of Your Training
I strongly recommend documenting all training sessions. If you are training to win a gunfight, there can never be a state of “good enough” in regards to your training. 
 Shows you how to review, analyze, and modify your training program and drills once you have gone through the training cycle
 Includes a training logbook I developed to address this need
 Shows you how you can and should always push your skill to the next level 
(BONUS Chapter 1) Visual Training System
This chapter addresses developing your visual skills to the next level. The faster you can see, the faster you can recognize and shoot.
(BONUS Chapter 2) The Future of Handgun Sighting Systems
I discuss what I think will be the trend in the future of handgun sights, electronic red dot sights in this chapter.
 Using a red dot sight on handguns will soon be as common as they are on rifles
 I will show you what I have found about this concept through testing and evaluation of a red dot on my handgun
(BONUS Chapter 3) Shooting-­‐Performance Handgun Skills Test
This is a great test to take before you begin the program (if you already have some experience), as well as during your use of my program to measure where you are in terms of skill.

Program Overview
This training program is not a “XX week” program like my competition-­‐training program that you find in my book: “Your Competition Handgun Training Program.” It is a life long program. While training cycles can be broken down in length, there is no end to a self-­‐defense program unless you want to lose the skills you have worked for. In a later section I give you a thorough understanding of how you actually learn, and one of the learning factors for any skill is that it must be trained repetitively and regularly. The following table will list the elements of the program that you will go through during your training year. It is the minimum I recommend if you are serious and want to really increase your skill. The program can/should be repeated multiple times, and one of the last chapters of this book discusses the process of reviewing your notes and modifying your program. All training drills in my program simple, yet effective. One last thing, I strongly suggest you read this entire book before beginning the program. This will give you an overview of the entire system (I call this a systematic approach to training), which includes the mental, physical, technical and legal aspects of training for the defensive use of a firearm.
Where firearms skills are developed -­‐ If you asked all shooters this question, 95% of them would probably say, “On the range while you are shooting.” The 5% of the shooters who said something different are probably the professionals (Professional Shooters and Warriors) who know the real answer. They would tell you that skill is developed in multiple areas such as dry fire practice, live fire practice, mental (focus) practice, and supplemental training such as physical fitness training, visual training, and proper planning. This skill would obviously be accompanied during its development by learning correct “tactics” for the individual’s environment. In terms of shooting I personally think the majority of skill needed to manipulate and fire a handgun, rifle, or shotgun with a high level of skill can be developed with proper instruction and then a relentless amount of dry fire practice, with very little live fire. Even so, reaching a high level of skill is much easier if the end user takes a systematic approach to training rather than a linear approach and just focusing on one area at a time. If I had to chart what was important to skill development I would draw it like this:
Key Parts Of A Training Program
Your training program is broken down into different pieces, which serve a separate purpose. They are as follows:
     • Yearly Plan
     • Monthly Training Matrix
     • Daily Training Plans
     • Training Drill Sheets (live and dry fire)
     • Log Sheets
Parts of a Training Program
A full training program has multiple parts. Each has a purpose in keeping your training organized and executable. I will develop some parts of your program in this program, such as the drills, schedule, phases, etc. You should do the others. Your yearly plan and monthly training matrix must be planned and built by you as only you know your schedule. Let me introduce you to the parts of a full program:
Yearly Plan
This document (you could build a written document or use a calendar) gives you the big picture. It includes the entire yearly training sessions and events you plan to attend. It doesn’t really matter if you are working toward a competitive goal or a combative goal; it is good to have a document so you can view the entire year. Normally, I recommend that you do training in cycles, specializing on one skill area or weapon type at a time, with support training done for the other skills or weapon systems. Your goals will dictate how your year is broken down. Since you are interested in honing your defensive handgun skills, that will probably be your focus, but an example of honing that skill through a training cycle (8-­‐12 weeks), and maintaining another might be found in someone who is in the military and needs to keep their skills sharp with a rifle or other weapon systems at the same time.
Monthly Training Matrix
This document is built to give you an overview of the training sessions you will do weekly. It gives a generic look at what type of training you will execute. Additionally, your matrix documents the frequency and duration of each training session. We all have busy lives and many of us have multiple training priorities. A monthly training matrix will help those that have numerous skills to maintain or develop stay organized and ensure they address all of their skill needs through the use of a dedicated planning and scheduling tool. If you are in a line of work that requires you to keep multiple skills honed, then laying out your monthly training blocks in some sort of matrix like this is a must.
Daily Training Plan
The training program in this book will provide your daily plan. After you complete the program, ensure you continue to have some sort of daily training plan for your sessions. A daily training plan is just as simple as it sounds. It is a written plan that guides you through your training session. It should contain all details about what you plan to do in that particular session, except the intimate details of each drill. That specific material is found on the drill sheets. If you plan your training in advance, you can type your training plans up and take notes, modifying them as necessary. There is also nothing wrong with handwriting what you plan to do in a given session. Just make sure you have a plan before you hit the range.
Training Drills Sheets
Drill sheets include everything you would need to know about the drill, including purpose, target setup, round count, recommended repetitions, measurement metrics, visual cues, key points and drill details (what to do when performing). The drill sheets for the program in this book are in chapter 9 and include both live fire and dry fire drills. The main thing to remember about the training drills is that they are each designed to allow you to work on key areas of skill, sort of like developing pieces of a puzzle. Then when you need to finally put any given puzzle together (lethal encounter), you can simple plug them in where necessary.
Documenting Paperwork / Log Sheets
The name is self-­‐explanatory. You need to track your training performance so you know if you are improving, how fast, and what you need to do to shift course (I will discuss the training design cycle in the next chapter). I use a training logbook to document my sessions with pre-­‐formatted sheets. Each one is designed so I can easily document the session and how I performed. The sheets are also carefully designed to make sure that I document the things that I need to analyze my training and judge my results. I did not document the numbers in the past like I do now, and I regret that deeply. The data I did not write down and overlooked may very well have taken me to new levels along the way.
The Six Principles Of Effective Training
In order for a training program to be effective, it must follow certain principles. Failure to contain or follow even one of these principles will render a program ineffective. Although I have provided a program for you in this book, by the end of it you should thoroughly understand how to develop your own program. Validate your program by comparing it against these principles on a regular basis.
1. Training drills must be designed correctly. 
This is the first validation of your program. It could not be simpler, but this is often the area that I see wrong with most programs and/or drills that I have come across during my career. The learning goals must be thought out and clearly defined, and then applied throughout the drills. Even programs developed with the best intent will be problematic if you don’t pay attention to design.
2. Training repetitions must be executed perfectly. 
This principle is simple, and is a key component to success. Repetitions must be done as correctly as possible or the skills developed will be wrong. Under duress the skill developed (the “program”) will not give the result desired.
3. Training sessions must be done at regular intervals. 
In order to develop skill (purpose of training), the brain and neuromuscular system must be exposed to developmental sessions on a regular basis. How often is very much debated. It will generally depend on one’s goal. But across the board almost all of the experts agree that development must take place a minimum of two times every week during the initial learning phase. In order to maintain a skill only one time per week may be necessary.
4. Training sessions must be documented. 
In order to monitor the program’s success, training programs must be documented. Key metrics should be written down for future reference, and you will use this data to modify the program as you go.
5. Skills and abilities developed must be measured. 
Simply “feeling” that you are improving is unproductive. Take the time to record and measure your skills on a regular basis. Someone once said, “if you cannot measure it, your cannot improve it.” Measure your skills regularly to guide you through the program modification phase. Measurement may consist of time factors or accuracy factors or a combination of both with a keen awareness that tactical procedures are followed.
6. The Program must be modified based on results (game day). 
A good training program MUST be modified. If not, results will stagnate and skills will remain in one place. Unless you desire this, you will need to reflect on your training logs and modify your program to continue your development.
Frequently Asked Questions
I thought that you would have some questions, so I have decided to try and address them before you ask (once you have read this program, I am available for you if you have further questions—simply visit my website and email me or fill out the question form). They are as follows:
“This program is very detailed and specific. Is it necessary for me to follow it exactly?”
Answer: I recommend that you follow the program as closely as possible for the first 16weeks or more. I have done the work for you in this program, so you can focus on training! Small modifications are OK, but give the whole program a chance to succeed before you start modifying it.
“Can I use my own drills or drills from programs like Rob Leatham’s drillmaster, etc. with this program?” 
Answer: Yes, you may supplement the program with other drills as long as you have taken the time to ensure the additional drill is well designed. Do the drills that I have assigned in this program, and then add some additional drills to your training sessions if you choose to do so.
The drills don’t seem complex, like a stage would be. Will they teach me what I need to know?
Answer: Yes, you might be able to build and do more complicated drills, but all of mine are designed with the minimalist concept in mind. I know most of you have very limited time, equipment, and range limitations that require simple yet effective drills to do the job. With four targets, a few props, and key information I promise to teach you more with my drills than you would learn by setting up and shooting complex stages. I believe you should develop your skills and think of them like pieces of a puzzle. When you have to “put the puzzle together” i.e. shoot a complex stage, simply pick the pieces you need and fit them together.
How do I refer to the drills while at the range?
Answer: You can certainly take the book with you, but for your convenience if you email me with proof of purchase of this book, I will email you a smaller PDF version of the drills that you can take to the range.
Is there another reference such as a video of these drills?
Answer: In a short period of time I will be completing a DVD with the training drills in action. This will greatly assist you in seeing what they look like when performed.
What People Are Saying On Amazon About Your Defensive Handgun Training Program

A Message From Jeramy Smith

Former Army Ranger/Combat Veteran
“Mike Seeklander once told me in regards to shooting, "We are all students of the game." No truer words have ever been said about the art of the gun, and this phrase has been echoed to my students many times. I have had the fortunate opportunity to shoot with some of the greatest shooters the military has to offer, and I have learned all that I know from the very best. I sought out Mike after articles I had read in Front Sight magazine while putting together a marksmanship program, his training and shooting lessons explained a lot to me and just made sense. Upon the first time we met at the range it was apparent this man and I were speaking the same language, Mike has this affect on all shooters. I have included Mike on almost every course I have developed, law enforcement and military. His ability to understand the fundamentals and push you to be your very best are unlike any instructor I have shot with. Mikes constant thirst for knowledge and self-improvement are a constant reminder to us all, that we are still learning and growing in this very dangerous business. Mike has shot with all walks of life, police, military, competitive, and civilian shooters alike. His ability to speak, train, and learn from all are what make him one of the very best in the business. I would go through the breech with Mike anytime. RLTW!”
