That being said, I am very interested in the Suarez basic courses and there is one being hosted not far from my father in laws vacation home (class is in Bellvue, cottage in Coldwater, I am suburban Detroit). My question is aimed at those of you that have taken classes by Suarez before, how quickly do the basic classes fill up? How far in advance should I register? And are the classes definately worthit? I know that there are tons of pistol defense courses out there and its hard to differentiate good from bad, especially for me in my infinite noobiness.... Thanks in advance!
The short answer is: it depends. Location and time of year play a role. Are the classes worth it? In my opinion, the course curriculum offered by SI is second to none, and better than most. Top notch instructors, cutting edge material, reasonable price and format.
I'd suggest visiting Warriortalk.com. Dig around, ask a few questions, get aquainted.
