Pro Tip: Learning to "run" your gun refers to safe, confident, and effective gun management.
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
[We offer] personalized instruction for safe, confident, and effective gun management for in-the-home protection and while carrying a concealed weapon in public. [It's] easy instruction that recognizes the students' limits and adjusts the type of firearm to their capabilities, strengths, and lifestyles. We work with seniors, women, groups, businesses, and clubs and offer a course for their needs.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
The surprised look that people have when they are challenged with a moving target and hit it every time. The confidence people get when safely making the right decisions during scenario drills. The ease of the course and ability to adjust it to the student's needs that I have developed for home, office, or classroom settings.
What aspect of your job, or the services you offer, most often surprises people?
How our classes can be used toward their CCW hours and they can complete the CCW requirements with us and our specialized training. How the drills without using live ammunition can be practiced in the privacy of their own homes.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Most firearms instructors only offer a concealed-carry class that covers an overview of firearms. We teach people how to use the gun before or after taking the certification for concealed carry. Our classes are hands-on drills that teach instruction of safe, competent, and effective firearm management.
In addition to a penchant for training others in the safe and responsible use of firearms, each of the nine instructors at R K Tactical share one thing in common: they all come from a law-enforcement background. Building on those years spent protecting citizens are additional specialties, ranging from martial arts to narcotics investigations. To put it simply, they take their work very seriously. This manifests in a comprehensive, safety-focused curriculum that comprises concealed-carry courses and general self-defense. Not all of their students are human, however. R K Tactical's team also trains police dogs for K-9 units.
Melody can't remember a time she wasn't in love with music. Since graduating college with a degree in musical theater, she's been performing at myriad regional theaters—everywhere from Arkansas and Tennessee to Kentucky and Alabama. And now students can seek her vocal expertise out of her private Bay Meadows studio. During one-on-one lessons, Melody uses a professional microphone and a take-home session recording to help students improve hearing, pitch, vocal dexterity, and tone.
The GolfPlex at University of North Florida's Hayt Golf Learning Center boasts a comprehensive golf training facility that can introduce new golfers to the game or help more advanced players take their skills to the next level. Power Tee range technology automatically replaces range balls after each swing at 40 adjustable tee heights, allowing golfers to hit more balls, maintain stance, and develop rhythm. As players swipe balls off of a synthetic Fiberbuilt strike mat, the Power Tee machine logs the number of hits, and a half-inch standing mat cushions carefully planted stances or victory laps around the stall. GolfPlex's experts also provide a full spectrum of instruction including lessons, camps, and player development programs that can focus on short-game or full-swing skill sets. An onsite golf shop keeps players properly outfitted with apparel and shoes from Nike and matches them with fresh new clubs or reshafts old, broken-in ones.
The Sylvester family had bartending in its blood. Whether it was Uncle Mickey holding court with 40 years' worth of regulars or Tony Sr. mixing one of his signature Skip and Go Nakeds, they exemplified the easy grace and no-nonsense craftsmanship found in a true barman's barman. That dedication to well-poured drinks carried over to Tony Jr., who has spent the last 35 years training mixologists nationwide through the curriculum of his ABC Bartending Schools. Taught behind fully functional bars, his courses educate students in topics ranging from drink recipes and equipment setup to flair moves and alcohol awareness. His schools also emphasize employment; after graduation, students can take advantage of a nationwide job placement service to land gigs in Miami nightclubs, Las Vegas casinos, or the bar cars of Chicago's El trains.
