Warrior Women Mission
LouKa Tactical has a mission for their Warrior Women: “We believe that building a culture of Warrior Women is not only essential for our future, but also our responsibility to do so. We do this by providing professional training and development opportunities irrespective of occupation or status, for those women who are passionate, like-minded, and who identify with strength, courage, and true leadership.”
Black Wing is honored to host Lou Ann and help to accomplish this mission.
“Lou Ann Hamblin is one of the finest trainers I have ever worked with. She has a keen understanding of how the human organism functions both physically and mentally and it shows in her cutting edge training programs. Lou is so much more than a firearms instructor; she is an innovator! She not only builds programs, she solves problems. She has spent her adult life training law enforcement officers and there are quite a few still alive due to her trend setting training. I am quite pleased she has decided to bring her hard learned lessons to the armed citizen arena. Listen to what she has to say… she will give you the confidence needed to PREVAIL against extreme odds”

Developmental Marksmanship with Lou Ann Hamblin is designed for the intermediate FEMALE student with proven previous drawing from holster training (See Black Wing Vital Pistol Training). The fundamentals are the foundation to any skillset and are drilled down to the core in this class. Deliberate practice is the cornerstone of developing the fundamentals of handgun management and marksmanship. Individual assessments and homework will be assigned for continued improvement. This is a low round count. Each round is fired as a sniper shot.
