Briggs Core Dynamics

I think we can all agree that we are never done training. A good defensive mindset is key, honing your skills so that you don't have to think about what you are doing is imperitive when the time comes to save innocent lives.


I have trained with the best in the world and I am happy to be able to teach with and host the top trainers on the planet.
