ABOUT US

PHALANX:

Regardless of background, as a responsible and trained citizen, you are a valuable link in building a safer community for us all.

ETHOS:

To advance individual skill sets to support our community of vigilant lawful citizens.

 

METHOD:

"Never leave anyone behind, while never leaving anyone unchallenged." -TMAC

We accomplish this by measuring each shooter’s incremental growth. This provides an intimate knowledge of the student’s strengths and more importantly areas of need. Fundamentals are introduced, and then methodically reinforced in and out of class. We believe in creating a push-pull learning environment to assure that all measures of understanding are achieved. Every Module is designed to build on the last and internalize each principle covered. This begins with Introduction (MOD I), then Application(MOD II) and finally Validation (MOD III).

As a training organization we reinvest a substantial amount of resources back into continued education, to assure that what we offer you is vetted, tested and up to date. 

We are a privately owned and operated LLC with the means to provide exactly what is needed for our clients. Phalanx Academy LLC was built on the foundation that VII Training Group so rigorously tested, and officially launched operations as a Limited Liability Company on the 5th of July, 2016. We are honored to provide training and certifications for multiple Military, Law Enforcement & Security agencies and businesses across the state. Some of note are both major Tactical Units for Alaska, along with the very security team that protects our capital building in Juneau, AK.

Joe serves as the Sr. Training Manager for Maxsent (ANC/FAI/JUN) under the Dept. of Homeland Security/ Federal Protective Services Contract of Alaska. He conducts training both in and out of the Federal Security Academy in Firearm Fundamentals & Qualifications, Use of Force, Report Writing, Expandable Baton, Oleoresin Capsicum, Defensive Tactics, Control Tactics, Federal SOP, Standard Security Policies & Procedures, Lowlight Tactics, Handcuff/ Restraints and Weapons/ Explosive Detection for his Officers at secured AK Federal Facilities.
