  Wake Up and Fight WRW is a four-day intensive (October 16 and 21 are travel days), with the first two days including firearms familiarization on a minimum of two different pistols (one semiautomatic) and two different rifles; self-defense training which includes the use of improvised weapons; a panel of law enforcement and personal protection experts to field questions on working a homicide, hostage situations, bodyguard operations; and a presentation from award-winning author Robin Burcell – THE WAY WE TALK, THE WAY WE WALK: How to make your fictional cop, special agent, or other law enforcement type look and sound like the real deal to your readers – a crash course in police lingo, Miranda, officer safety, radio traffic, and interrogation.

The third and fourth days will consist of a mini-protection detail, including the fundamentals of close protection and bodyguarding, breaking into teams, surveying the site, assigning tasks, presentation of team plans, the protection field exercise followed by a debrief.

Sam Rosenberg, Facilitator and Lead Trainer, is Founder & CEO of INPAX Academy of Personal Protection in Pittsburgh, PA. Sam is a former Marine officer and professional bodyguard (including Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel). His lifelong study of human violence and aggression led him to develop INPAX® - a practical approach to managing physical conflict in the real world. Sam teaches personal defensive tactics to a diverse clientele, ranging from celebrities, professional athletes and business executives to schoolchildren, disadvantaged women and victims of violent crime.

Sam is the author of INPAX: The Way of the Warrior, and Traveler’s Guide to Personal Security.
