The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh’s security team is partnering with a nationally known trainer to provide free active threat training for the community on Sunday, June 12, and Sunday, July 17.

The training will be led by David Wright, a retired police officer with more than 25 years of experience. Wright is a black belt instructor in Krav Maga and a Krav Maga Force Division instructor, and a master instructor in police defensive tactics. For 20 years, he was the lead use of force instructor for the Pittsburgh Police, where he was responsible for developing, monitoring and teaching police self-defense. He has trained police and military personnel from across the world.

The training will be held at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh in Squirrel Hill.

This four-part class is an advanced, expanded version of Community Active Threat Training and will address the following topics: the mind of an active shooter, predator versus prey, situational awareness and survival mindset; basic self-defense, using techniques such as Krav Maga; weapons awareness and disarming techniques; and advanced defensive tactics, including team tactics and reality-based training.
