Must have working operational knowledge of the firearm you bring to class (i.e know how to load/unload safely).
MUST KNOW, UNDERSTAND AND APPLY THE FOUR LIFE RULES OF RESPONSIBLE FIREARMS HANDLING AT ALL TIMES. See video below.

Life happens. Bad things happen. For this reason we need to train for when things aren’t all rainbows and kittens. When Things Go Bad is built around the fact that in a defensive situation, we may lose the ability to employ the perfect shooting techniques or have the support of both hands by injury or need. This class is designed to prepare the student to keep their handgun up and running regardless of the situation.
This class is for the intermediate to experienced shooter who understands and applies the four rules of responsible firearms handling as a way of life. Students should be absolutely competent in manipulating a handgun with both hands available. This class is stressful and will test those who attend.
This course requires one or more MDFI Foundation Level classes as a pre-requisite therefor registration is only open to MDFI Alumni (when logged into their account). If you are not an Alumni and would like to attend and believe you have the pre-requisites, please email us with a copy of your training certificates to start the registration process.

If you are 100% confident and competent with manipulating a firearm around others do not sleep on this class! WTGB Is a class that everyone should take if they are going to carry a firearm everyday for self defense. You will learn to never quit and stay in the fight. This class is a blast, you wont regret taking it.
As a Law Enforcement Officer, training from up close and when you are not in an ideal shooting position is common that was not addressed at our department. When Things Go Bad went well above exceeding my expectations. It was the first class I took through MDFI and I have every intention of taking many more and taking the skills learned back to my department. Trek and the Cadre are knowledgeable and skilled beyond most other classes I've taken and were able to answer many questions and give scenarios when a LEO would use different elements taught. I felt very comfortable and safe throughout the entire class thanks to them and I express my appreciation towards them. Take this class and you will be happy you did. Very eye opening and will be taking the class again.
When Things Go Bad is a great complement to Handgun Cover + Movement. Many of the topics are related, and while C + M is more physically taxing, WTGB introduces many unique situations such as contact shooting, retention shooting, and how to shoot and manipulate the gun with an injury. As always, the cadre provides an exceptional and controlled atmosphere to train in concepts that we normally cannot do on the range. Thanks again guys!
This course is highly recommended for anyone interested to learn how to fight with a handgun from extremely close distances and from the ground. Skills included safe operation of the gun based on unconventional but realistic possible circumstances. The instruction was outstanding. Thank you.
