Class Description

Where east meets west
3nd Annual Kalashtober - Ken Allen Training Partnered with Sellrain AK
A Northeast Kalash Community Event
2-Days of Learning Focused on all things AK
AK Pattern Rifle / Carbine - Skill Development Training
(AK47, AKM, RPK, Krink, Galil, Valmet, SIG 550 Series, Etc.)

Jim Fuller of Rifle Dynamics named Ken as one of the top rated AK Trainers in the US in the western style of AK gunning.

Level: Advanced Beginner thru Advanced Level.

The AK is not your AR/M4 and should not be treated as such... however foundational fundamentals are without boarders or favor. Come out and blend the best of both worlds and become more effective with the most robust and prolific platform in the world. Either begin to learn to manipulate the AK or improve and develop your skill sets with it!

Who should attend:
1. Any advanced-beginner though advanced level shooter but new to training or new to training with an AK.
2. An experienced AK enthusiast looking to work on efficiency of motion and to improve levels of speed and accuracy in combination with defensive techniques.
3. Those wishing to learn a more in depth understanding how an AK is made, about modern parts choices, what constitutes quality in the AK market place, and general AK maintenance from a Master Builder.
4. Those interested in demoing a select-fire AK (full auto experience w/ no extra fee).

The training will cover operation, use and maintenance of the AK pattern rifle / carbine. A comparison will be made between traditional eastern operation philosophies and modern western techniques. Foundational fundamental skills will be discussed, taught and practiced, along with defensive techniques and positioning. Numerous learning repetitions will be offered to assure the student’s understanding of the skills presented. Following each learning segments will be challenging drills for confirmation and reinforcement of each learning point. To ensure accuracy and accountability, targets will be continually scored and backgrounds will be checked. Individualized coaching and feedback will be offered. In this friendly environment, all students will be constantly encouraged to perform to their personal potential. This in-depth, well blended AK specific training is invaluable for the Armed Professional (foreign weapons familiarization) or Citizen Defender, but is equally as valuable for those interested in collecting, competition or range use of their rifle/ carbine.

Class size is limited; register early to hold your seat.
