If you unexpectedly find yourself under violent attack… you won’t have time to think.
Your body MUST respond automatically…and that’s where 99% of firearms training fails.
Better yet, this new firearms training program can be done at home,
no grueling or expensive trips to the range required.
Plus, it will shave years off your training
and save you thousands in ammo.
It’s terrifying…but according to the Department of Justice, you have a greater than 50% chance of experiencing a violent attack at some point in your life.
I know, it’s hard to believe.
But even worse… when it does happen…
…From the completely unprepared… to the highly trained Navy SEAL, like me.
The only question… is…
As you continue reading you’ll discover the good news is…
And since it’s something you’re betting your life on… you cannot afford to get it wrong.
That’s where I come in.
My name is Larry Yatch and I’m a retired Navy SEAL and a current firearms and self-defense expert. If you happen to have read Dick Couch’s best selling book, “Down Range,” on Navy SEALs in Iraq and Afghanistan, the second chapter tells some of my story. I was still “under the radar” when Dick wrote that, so he used the name “Sean Yarrow” to protect my identity.
I own a firing range and self-defense facility here in Minnesota called “Sealed Mindset”. It’s unlike any other firearms training center or training program out there.
You see, we don’t just teach people how to shoot guns here; we go WAY beyond that, in fact, we teach using an approach that’s completely revolutionary to the firearms industry. We do that for a reason… a reason that is completely missing from other firearms courses out there.
"When acting as a lead SEAL sniper instructor we had to leverage every technique we could to optimize human performance. We were successful as seen by the effectiveness of our students like Chris Kyle and Marcus Luttrel. Larry has broken down and accelerated the process of teaching and learning defensive combat shooting utilizing many of these same structures in the CCMC. If you care about learning to defend yourself and your family in the most effective manner possible you have no other choice than Sealed Mindset’s CCMC."
“I’m a competitive shooter and regularly go from beep to bang in the sub-1-second range and thought that I’d perform at a similar level in a high stress situation. I can’t shoot THAT much faster, but after a few hours of the SEALed Mindset training, I shaved seconds off of my surprise response time…seconds that could easily make the difference in a real life fight for my life.”
If you’ve attended any firearms training classes or read any gun articles in recent years, you know that your vision, hearing, motor skills, and decision making will all go down the drain in a high stress self-defense situation.
But what you don’t know is that almost every firearms class currently being offered teaches people to perform specific tasks like a champ during the class, but NOT how to perform those exact same tasks under real life, surprise, extreme stress.
It’s not the instructors’ fault…they simply have too may skills to teach in too little time and it’s just not possible to pile on as much information as they are AND help students develop muscle memory at the same time.
The end result is predictable. Without regular followup and practice (who can afford that?), students experience a 60-80% degradation in skills over a few short weeks and end up with only head knowledge from their class. This means that most will freeze longer than necessary when faced with an extreme threat.
This fact drives most instructors nuts, but there hasn’t been an affordable solution to this huge problem…until now.
We’ll get to that in a minute…as well as an easy solution.
But first, I want to tell you a little bit about my SEAL training and a couple of lessons that have saved my life–more than once.
Contrary to what you’ve seen on TV and in movies, SEALs don’t always shoot their way into and out of their missions.
In fact, there were several instances for me where “going hot” meant that the mission had gone seriously bad. A popular SEAL example would be the operation that the book and movie, “Lone Survivor” was based on…Operation Red Wings.
Similar to that, at one point, I operated covertly as part of a 2-man team for 12 months in a hostile country, moving about urban and rural areas, blending in, and executing my mission with people who looked, acted, and even smelled differently than me. My wife was even professionally trained and operated in the intelligence field.
You see, this stuff isn’t theory to us. During those kind of ops, it wasn’t my gun fighting skills that kept me alive, it was our my situational awareness and deterrence training.
And, in case you didn’t realize it, you’re in the same boat that I was when I was operating covertly. No matter how much you train and how prepared you are, you want to do everything you can to avoid being in a situation where you have to use your gun in self defense.
High speed gun skills can get you through a fight, but it’s situational awareness and deterrence skills that will help you avoid 98% of all violent confrontations–and give you an advantage in the remaining 2%.
Yet most defensive firearms courses only have the time to mention these 2 vital skills in passing–if they mention them at all.
When I realized that, I knew that I had to do something to help regular, everyday folks… folks like you… get real training that works in life-or-death situations when it absolutely, positively cannot fail.
Most firearms instructors are downright awesome guys (and gals) and would love to have more time with their students to do things right, but they’re stuck teaching too much material in too little time because of how tight peoples’ schedules and budgets are.
So my team and I stepped back and looked at what works and what doesn’t work with military, law enforcement, and civilian firearms training; what worked and didn’t work for us in lethal force encounters, martial arts and combatives training methods, learning psychology, and stress psychology and created a revolutionary firearms training system that combines the best of all of them. The best part is…
And you’re not going to have to spend years of training, have super physical abilities or an unlimited budget to master it.
How’s that possible?
Because we have pioneered the use of cutting edge firearms teaching techniques, including “neural pathway development,” “stimulus bridging,” “mirror neuron training,” “startle response reprogramming” that dramatically shortcut the time required to achieve mastery with a pistol. And don’t worry about the big words…everything is taught in a way that you’ll immediately and easily understand and be able to use.
I purposely created a simple-to-use firearms course to help anyone go from only knowing the basics of pistol to mastery from the comfort of home… no expensive trips to the range required. (But, in case you enjoy sending rounds downrange as much as I do, we include specific live fire drills to compliment the at-home training.)
The course is specifically designed with follow-along drills so that you can watch the instructor model perfect form and you can follow along, skip back, and repeat as many times as you’d like. It’s like getting private lessons with unlimited retakes!
And yes, it’s proven. In addition to more than a dozen written testimonials that you’ll see throughout this letter, you need to know that we’ve taught this material, live in our studio, 140-180 times per month for the last 2 years to students just like you.
Over the last 20 years–10 of them while on the Teams–I’ve learned and tested thousands of techniques from multiple countries and this course represents the best of the best.
More importantly, the SEALed Mindset team represents more than 100 years of combined military and police experience from Army Rangers, Army MP Tac teams, Marine Force Recon, Navy SEALs, and police SWAT sniper commanders. We pooled our vast experience, battled, pressure tested, and continuously modified the program until we had the most effective system we could make.
But it’s not dogmatic. If we find something that works, we immediately make it a part of our own training.
We’ve kept only the most effective techniques that work and, more importantly, have been proven effective in real world situations.
I wanted to drop you a quick note to again thank you for the training you provided for my officers (and myself) earlier this year. As you probably saw on the news, Fri morning BCPD had an officer involved shooting. I was covering the street as the supervisor and had four officers working at the time. All four of the officers working had been at the training you conducted for us.
When a suspect tried to kill two of my officers shortly after 0200, my two officers used all of their training and experiences, never stopped fighting, and never gave up until they stopped the person that had been trying to kill them. The training you had given them was some of the most recent that they had received, and I’m confident that at least some of it came into play Fri morning and was used by them to make sure that we all went home safely.
Thank you for giving my officers skills they can use to keep themselves alive and safe!
Then, we put the training into a series of step-by-step DVDs that anyone can follow in the comfort of their own home.
I understand that I can buy the items in this package for full price in the future.
The Concealed Carry Masters Course is the first and only firearms DVD training course that teaches scientifically validated techniques to reprogram your startle response so that you automatically and instantly respond to threats without delay or hesitation.
We’ll also teach you how to seamlessly integrate situational awareness, deterrence strategies, and fighting to your gun with empty hands, effective use of your gun in a self-defense situation, how to transition to using your pistol as an impact weapon if it malfunctions.
When I was on the Teams, we were constantly training and the Navy spent roughly $2.5 MILLION DOLLARS training me to be able to perform at a very high level, automatically, under stress. You may not have that kind of time or money, but fortunately we’ve cracked the code on how to shortcut the process for you! We’ll show you how to achieve the same (or better!) effectiveness with a gun under stress as quickly and inexpensively as possible.
And, unlike most other video training courses out there, we spared no expense to make sure we made the best-looking and sounding DVDs we could.
In addition to looking amazing, we made sure that this system was wife, girlfriend, and family friendly, in fact many couples choose to do our training for their “date nights”.
Just wanted to thank you guys for doing some firearms training with my wife.
As a cop, I thought it would be a good idea if she knew at least how to load and unload a gun since we have guns in our home. Never did I think she would actually want to go shooting with me.
My wife hated guns before she was introduced to Sealed Mindset. It’s a night and day difference. Thanks again. Puts me at ease when she is home with the kids alone!
And you’ll notice this isn’t like some firearms training videos where they simply film a large class or people shooting on a range.
You get about as much value watching those kinds of firearms training DVDs as you do a movie about special operations. You may get some facts and great head knowledge that you can share at a party or even demonstrate when you’re relaxed and having fun, but they’re not designed to help you defend yourself in a true life-or-death situation when there’s no time to think or remember.
We do include live fire demonstrations and written courses of fire in the downloadable companion book, but the majority of the training is based on the reality that you’re going to be at home where you can do the dry fire follow along drills without the cost and time burden of going to a range.
The lessons include 2 (and sometimes 3) sections: Classroom instruction, dry fire drills, and live fire drills.
The classroom section gives you the background, shows you scenarios, compares other approaches, and teaches you how to do the skill.
When our approach goes against gun training pop-culture or there are multiple effective options, we’ll show you side-by-side, slow motion video and let you make an educated choice about which method you want to claim as your own.
The classroom portion is where almost all other video training stops–with education and head knowledge that may impress friends, but that won’t do you any good in a high stress situation.
This component is vital, but on it’s own, is like cramming for a stressful final. You may know everything when the stress is off, but when you add some pressure: “poof,” your mind goes blank. And this is why the next part is so critical.
The follow along dry fire drills are where the magic happens. Just like exercise videos let you follow along and model professionals with perfect technique, the dry fire drills provide you with a “virtual private instructor” experience.
We suggest that you do the drills with a SIRT (a laser training aid that looks and feels like a Glock, but is incapable of firing projectiles–you’ll get a discount code once you order), or with a resetting trigger insert, but if you follow the included safety steps, you can use your regular pistol as well.
Besides being safer, we’ve found that people who have a SIRT gain skills much faster because of the fact that they train a lot more than people who only use their regular pistol. Again, the training is not dogmatic so the choice is yours.
During the dry fire drills, the instructor describes each drill, calls out the steps and demonstrates them on your TV while you follow along–first slowly, and then building to full speed.
Put another way, the practice sessions are what take people from being an armchair quarterback to being a starter on the field–both may know their stuff, but only the shooter who practices can actually perform at a high level under stress.
Next, we’ve got the optional live fire drills. One of the biggest questions that firearms instructors get from students is, “What should I do at the range to get the most value out of my training time and money?” And the question is very frustrating for instructors because, “It depends.” It depends on where you are in the learning process, and what skill or movement you need to focus on at the time.
And that’s why we include video and written live fire drills that reinforce the classroom and dry fire training. You’ll never have to wonder what to do the next time you go to the range. We’ve got it mapped out for you, no matter where you’re starting from, or how advanced you become.
The dry fire training will help you affordably “hard-wire” these techniques into your mind and body, so that they become programmed responses that you can depend on in times of extreme stress and the live fire drills will consciously and subconsciously validate the effectiveness of your dry fire training.
Does it work? You saw the note about the 4 officers who survived, in part, due to our training and you’ll see more testimonials from students in a minute. But beyond that, our method of teaching and learning has been proven so effective that we’ve been paid as much as $22,000 to teach some of them (especially the situational awareness, deterrence, and disengagement skills) to school districts and big name corporations.
You can be sure…
Also, these DVDs were entirely planned out and scripted before we ever shot a frame of footage. They reflect the same lesson outlines we’ve used in the 140-180 live training sessions we’ve done every month for the last 2 years in our studio.
This means you’re getting material that’s already been tested, refined, and proven effective.
There’s no “winging it” or “flying off the cuff” on these DVDs .
Why’s that important? One of the creators of an incredibly popular firearms training DVD series recently said in a magazine interview that he’d never even taught classes or worked with the other instructor until they started filming. They’re great instructors and they put out a solid product, but I have to think that if they’d refined their instruction over hundreds of deliveries, they would have put out a more effective end product.
Every word, technique, and move was planned, tested, and refined in advance so that you will effectively learn every single important step from the comfort of your home.
This may be a shock to you, but going to most firearms classes or watching firearms training DVDs won’t prepare you for a violent encounter–and every single instructor I know who’s worth their salt would agree with me about that.
That’s why they all tell their students, at least once, if not several times, to “make sure you’re practicing this stuff on a regular basis after you go home.”
So what’s the problem?
Even if you actually practice after a high-dollar training class, your memory of perfect form or technique and the quality of your practice will quickly fade over time.
Don’t get me wrong. You’ll probably learn some great skills and have an incredible experience, but it doesn’t mean that you’re ready to meet a life or death scenario with immediate, subconscious, trained responses.
The best instructors know that when you face a fight or flight situation, the part of your brain that’s responsible for decision making, conscious thought, and remembering how to do things shuts down and your subconscious takes control. You don’t have the time (or ability) to “think” about your training–you only have time to do what you’ve programmed your mind and body to do.
If you’ve got to think about what you’re going to do, you will freeze and stay frozen. And that is why it’s so important to practice until you reach “unconscious competence,” or the ability to do things without conscious thought. However, few people practice correctly to begin with, let alone practice enough to ever get to this level.
And doing a typical 2 to 7 day course won’t allow you enough practice time to master skills and develop the neural pathways (muscle memory) necessary to transfer the skills from conscious to subconscious reaction: the reactions that you can depend on under stress.
If they could, most instructors would go home with their students and be ready, at a moment’s notice, to repeat anything they said in the class, demonstrate perfect form to model, tell you exactly what you need to practice to get better, call out the steps to practice, and encourage multiple repetitions so that the skills can be hardwired.
Other instructors can’t do this. Heck, even other training DVDs aren’t set up to do this, but that’s exactly what the Concealed Carry Masters Course DVDs were designed to do for you–train your subconscious to respond correctly and immediately to violent attacks, even when people around you are frozen or cowering in fear and submission.
You’ll not only get dry fire follow-along videos that you can model in the comfort of your home, but also a downloadable and printable companion guide with written descriptions of all of the dry and live fire drills, with pictures, to use at home, at the range, or when you’re away from home.
Second, I mentioned this before, but it’s worth repeating. I operated undercover in hostile countries for extended periods of time and am alive today, in large part, because of my situational awareness, deterrence, and disengagement skills.
In the Concealed Carry Masters Course, you’ll learn our simple, proven, 2-step system for assessing people and environments that will make you more aware of your surroundings than you thought possible while staying as calm, relaxed, and in control as a lion laying in the sun.
And, if your spidey senses do go off, or trouble sneaks up on you, we’ll give you tools to calm the situation down and get away before you’re forced into a situation where you need to deploy a weapon.
It was amazing how much more aware I was walking my dog last night after taking your class yesterday. I have always tried to make a point of being aware but I was much more vigilant regarding what is going on around me. It was also empowering.
I wish I had started taking classes a few years ago when I first heard about Sealed Mindset on Armed America Radio. I really appreciate that your training attempts to simulate real situations… I am doing this to learn a valuable skill to protect myself and my family… not to become a good shot under ideal situations with no threat against me or to just get in shape etc. Thanks to you and your team for what you do!
And third, the reality of a self-defense situation is that it normally comes to you and is hidden until the last possible moment. It usually won’t happen at 21 feet or 11 feet, but inches.
The schools of thought that say that most attacks on civilians happen at 21 or 11 feet miss the fact that those stats are based on law enforcement encounters where the police are moving towards bad guys on purpose.
That means that, if you carry a gun for self defense, you’ll probably need to FIGHT to even be able to deploy your gun. Some trainers have figured this out and are teaching “contact shooting,” but real life proves out that MOST contact shooting techniques currently being taught will FAIL MOST of the time and almost guarantee that you’ll end up in a struggle for your gun where you’re at a severe disadvantage.
Here’s an example. 1.5 seconds is about how long it takes someone to go from a dead stop and travel 21 feet. It’s also about how long it takes a practiced shooter to draw and put effective rounds on target. But if your attacker is 21 INCHES away, do you think he’s going to calmly watch you for a second or two (or 3 under stress) while you draw and engage? Hell, no. He’s either going to start pummeling you or he’s going to go for your gun too.
That’s why we test all of our techniques with live force-on-force simunition/airsoft training, and studying after action reports.
When you’re done, you won’t just know some fun facts to share at parties, you’ll quickly and easily own these skills at a subconscious level and will be able to identify, avoid, and, if necessary, stop violent threats as fast and efficiently as possible under extreme stress.
I was a complete novice before taking classes at Sealed Mindset. I now have skills and confidence that I know I could not have gained on my own even spending hours on a range. I still have lots more I can learn, but I expect I’ll run out of ability before Lt Yatch and his team run out of training material. If you have ever felt a need to be better positioned to protect yourself or your family but didn’t know where to start, call Sealed Mindset. You will have a lot of fun too.
(Trust me…This Is Different, and More Effective Than Anything Else You’ve Ever Seen.)
Now if you trained with me or Beau, the other main instructor on the DVDs, here in Minnesota, it would cost you $300 per hour to learn this, not including your travel and lodging.
And let´s face it… you can´t learn how to shoot in an hour. Plus, one of the secrets to our accelerated learning process is small, frequent exposures to the techniques over time.
And even our local private lesson clients don’t get unlimited retakes like you do with the DVDs.
So really, to get anything close to the effectiveness of this training DVD course, you’d need to move to Minneapolis and train with us a few times a week like you would at a martial arts studio.
If you did that, it would cost you $185 PER MONTH, plus a $69 background check and a $100 membership fee. You’d also have to attend a mandatory 2 hour orientation at 9am on a Saturday (INDOC) before you start training. Unfortunately, this really only applies to people who already live near our studios.
Even so, the DVDs are more like our private lessons, which are $300 per hour, so you’d have to add that on as well.
When you add up the cost to get the training that’s a close approximation to what you’ll get on the SEALed Mindset Concealed Carry Masters Course DVDs, the cost ranges from $5,000-$9,000, depending on how long it takes you and how many private retakes you do.
Our students agree that the level of mastery, confidence, and peace of mind that they receive from our training is worth every penny, but you won’t have to pay anywhere near that amount.
Fortunately, we’ve made it so that you don’t have to invest in travel or moving costs and private lessons with Beau or me.
When you take advantage of this special introductory offer right now, your total investment is only
You see, the material is tried, tested, and proven, but this is the first time we’re putting it on DVDs, and it’s EXPENSIVE to get the packages made since we have to order them in bulk.

"I’ve had the pleasure of training with Larry Yatch for years, and I’ve always been continually impressed with not only his amazing experience as a Navy SEAL, but also with his ability to take topics that were previously reserved for elite tactical teams, and bring them to the civilian market in a way that we can understand. The shooting techniques, the accelerated teaching/learning systems, and the integrated methods that he’s created are among the best that I’ve seen, and I’ve seen a lot. While I’m lucky enough to live near Larry’s training headquarters, the Concealed Carry Masters Course takes the same knowledge that Larry has shared in the classroom and on the range with thousands of students, and packages it up into a DVD set that brings that same training into the comfort of your own home. The Concealed Carry Masters Course is really groundbreaking in its ability to take the theory behind proper shooting techniques, and hardwire those techniques at on unconscious level. If you’re serious about using a pistol for self-defense, you should seriously consider this course."
Sealed Mindset is a World-Class self-defense facility and business. I truly believe they are inimitable in this industry and feel fortunate to have access to this level of training. I recently took a course with my wife. In short, the experience was amazing. The class was intense and realistic, but NOT intimidating. The staff are second to none and have a wealth of knowledge and experience. I highly recommend Sealed Mindset to anyone with a pulse (there is literally something for anyone), and especially those who care about their personal safety and the safety of loved ones. Sealed Mindset is simply the best!
I’ve been to Front Sight and many of the higher level training programs in the country. Sealed Mindset’s program helps you hone and refine what you learn in that type of “fire-hose” training – and they do it with a fraction of the time and a fraction of the cost. It’s great for guys like me who don’t have the flexibility in my schedule to take a week or two off to travel for training every year, but still want the best there is to keep my family safe.
As a former professional in the High-Risk Security field, I can say that the importance of qualified, experienced Instructors is a very high priority. Too many times, I have worked with people who had received their CCW permit and were considered “qualified” by the Companies contracted to provide security. I think it is great that you guys are going above and beyond the minimum training needed for Minnesota’s CCW requirements and hope to one day, further my own training on your course!
I was watching “The real housewives of Miami” and one of the ladies went to the gun range so she could learn how to shoot a gun. Well, I was amazed at the things she was doing wrong, most notable was how she held the gun and the fact that she kept her finger on the trigger the whole time, regardless of the position of the gun! It was great to realize these mistakes, and I’m so thankful for the training I’ve received so far! Seeing that solidifies proper training is absolutely necessary!
I want to thank you and all of the Sealed Mindset team members for hosting this course. It was an unbelievable experience, filled with much learning and knowledge that I can use wherever I am. I feel that because I have taken this course, I am much better suited to protect not only myself but also others. Lt. Yatch instilled great lessons while making it an enjoyable and exciting experience. To sum up how I feel about this course, “Never be a victim again. Eliminate uncertainty and control fear by taking this course!
Personally, I have been shooting for eight years now. I have just assumed that I was a terrible shot and made my peace with that. After a 30 minute training session and some stance and grip corrections I have drastically improved. I might even consider myself a good shot if I continue to cement the lessons. So I definitely enjoyed it immensely. It’s a great facility and program you have going. You should be very proud. I will definitely be recommending it to anybody interested.
I really like the mental part of the training, I personally needed it as I feel I’ve lost an edge over the years. I would take a class from Sealed Mindset ANY day, you certainly have my respect.
I’ve got to leave you with this disclaimer. This training is not classified. It’s also not endorsed by the US Navy or the US Navy SEALs.
