"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 agencies and businesses across the state. One of note is the very security team that protects our capital building in Juneau, AK.
