Sage Dynamics - Aaron Cowan

About the Company

Sage Dynamics offers total-package training solutions for Citizens, Law Enforcement, Military and Private Security. Designed to introduce and build unconscious competence in real-world skills from the fundamental to expert level, Sage Dynamics places an exclusive focus on the reality on use of force situations faced by people from all walks of life and occupations. Each program is designed to address the three-dimensional world and three-dimensional threat, avoiding the traditional range mentality that has plagued realistic training for decades.

Sage Dynamics also offers courses that are intended for the private citizen, utilizing training techniques that are purposefully designed for personal protection and the defense of others. From basic safety to advanced weapons manipulation skills, Sage Dynamics instructs in practical and effective methods for confronting threats in and out of the home. Just as with our LE/Mil programs, citizen focused training courses are designed to address the reality of self-defense in three-dimensions.

Purpose Driven.

Realism is the key to success. Developing training to prove this truth, Sage Dynamics has invested heavily in psychological, physiological, anatomical, and bio-mechanical research. This knowledge paired with decades of experience gained from the law enforcement, military and private security fields, allows Sage Dynamics to offer a product that can dramatically increase the technical and tactical proficiency of the individual or the team.

We don’t train shooters...we teach superiority.
