HQL Training Classes in Maryland

Israeli Tactical School specializes in realistic self-defense training. Our instructors’ decades of experience in the fields of counter-terror and protection give students a real-life perspective on what to expect in the case of an emergency. The training focuses on developing the skills needed to face critical moments, such as home invasion and threats to business and livelihood.

In our HQL classes, the emphasis is on hands-on and live-fire practice with minimum classroom time, which roughly translates into 95% of practical handling of a gun and 5% of theoretical content. Our curriculum emphasizes accuracy, rapid-fire, fine trigger work, and overall operating under high-stress conditions.

The HQL class is basically a short version of our basic pistol/rifle TAC1, which is part of our beginners’ program. Ultimately, successful completion of this course allows you to proceed to TAC2 and TAC3, which include home defense room clearing, active shooter exercises, and more. Simply put, tactical training for civilians is our school expertise.

If you would like to purchase a handgun and learn how to actually use it in case of a real-life emergency, our program is an excellent place to get you started.

Our programs for beginners and advanced shooters alike are renowned for their high quality. Additionally, we are unique in our ability to tailor instruction to our students’ needs, therefore providing them with the best possible service and enhancing their learning experience. We keep our classes small; we never have more than ten students per group, giving us a ratio of 1:5/1:3.

We focus on every student. Every bullet shot is thoroughly debriefed to certify that performance is up to par with best practices, checking for students’ alertness and general awareness. The strong emphasis on individual performance (the method employed by the Israeli secret service) ensures that students learn to avoid collateral damage of any sort even when under enormous pressure. This subject is taught in greater depth during TAC2 and TAC3.

Tomer Israeli developed all the training at Israeli Tactical School, drawing from over 25 years of both combat and instructional experience. He began his army career in the Israeli Delta Force (Sayeret Matkal’92 Yuval), then as member of a recon team (Sayeret Golani – Orev ’92 Dotan). As a reserve officer (captain), Tomer led his recon team deep behind enemy lines during the Second Lebanon War (2006).

After the army, Tomer was selected for training by the Shin Bet (Israeli Secret Service) and became a certified Chief Security Officer upon completion. He was posted to the Israeli Embassy in Washington, D.C., where he operated as team leader in a special agent close protection unit.

An expert instructor, Tomer founded Israeli Tactical School as a premium security and counter-terror training organization that would meet the growing demand for a higher level of protective services. His vast experience includes, but is not limited to, VIP protection, air marshal, sensitive infrastructure protection, explosives, small unit commando warfare, recon, hostage rescue, direct action, executive protection, multiple firearms, emergency preparedness, crisis response, covert operations, surveillance/counter-surveillance, anti-terrorist tactics, and much more.
