Shooting as a Martial Art
by Jeff Hall
Jeff Hall is a retired lieutenant from the Alaska State Troopers, with over 25 years of combined military and law enforcement experience. While a Trooper, Jeff spent nineteen years on the pistol team and twelve on the S.W.A.T. team; he has used all of the techniques taught by Force Options in combat.
Hall is one of the only US police officers to win an air-to-ground firefight against an armed criminal. This occurred on 5/19/84 at Manley Hot Springs, Alaska; it was recently featured on the History Channel's Sniper: Deadliest Missions.
Jeff is a Handgun Combat Master and holds black belts in five arts, ranging from 3rd through 10th Dan. In 2012 he was promoted to Godan (5th Dan) in Shudokan. He is an NRA certified instructor in handgun, shotgun, submachine gun, carbine, and precision rifle; an NRA Adjunct Staff Instructor; and certified Police Master Instructor. All Force Options instructors are similarly qualified.
Jeff has published numerous articles, written several training manuals, and currently travels across the U.S. teaching for several professional training associations. Jeff is currently training for the Four Weapon Combat Master test, and to become the second ever to pass the Handgun Combat Master test with a revolver.
In 2005 Jeff was inducted into the U.S. Martial Arts Hall of Fame, and in 2007 into the Universal Martial Arts Hall of Fame. He was named Grandmaster, promoted to 10th dan, and named "soke", or founder, of the art of Hojutsu-Ryu, the Art of Shooting.
The video shows you how to instill calmness and confidence into your reaction to violent encounters, which is often overlooked in both martial arts and firearms instruction. Hitting the shooting range, Hall demonstrates just how his one-of-a-kind art form extends from the dojo to the street for real-life self-defense applications. Whether it's for the job or your own personal peace of mind, this Hojutsu-Ryu set provides what you need to deal with any assailant with force, precision and finality.
