Join us in this annual celebration of martial education - The 'Merica Seminar!

" 'Merica! We've come a long way and we ain't done yet!" 


Instructors scheduled so far...

  • Hock Hochheim, the 'Merica Seminars arctitect, on military and policing "stick." Hock was certified in the old school Los Angeles Police city and county baton courses on striking, grappling, manipulations and ground fighting, as well as other enforcement, nightstick, U.S. military and police sources.

  • John Portenza a super expert on Catch-as-Catch-Can Wrestling. Catch is an old-school hardcore, superior grappling system (that even confounds BJJ) and John has "done it all" with all the Catch greats for decades. He is the best Catch guy I have ever found, and a skilled, personable teacher. 

  • Snake Blocker on historical, Apache Empty Hand Fighting and Wrestling.

  • Big Dawg Kerwood, an expert on knife and axe throwing with introduce the attendees to the art, the way and the science of the throw!

  • Jeff Rawhide Laun, a marine vet, veteran police officer, veteran police instructor and multiple black belt holder will instruct pistol retention. (Bring your holster-belt system but we will also have on hand, clip-on holsters for those needing one.)  

  • The BIG GUNS of the Royal Range. Test fire automatic weapons for free.

  • More Instructors to be announced by November 2022.


The Royal Range Nashville, TN. A movie theater cleverly transformed into indoor shooting ranges and classrooms. https://www.royalrangeusa.com/

  • 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday 9 a.m. to 4.p.m. on Sunday. Arrive at 8:30 a.m. to get ready.

  • $250 for two days.

  • $150 for any one day.

  • $150 2-Day Discount for U.K., Europeans and Australians. You are flying over. It is expensive enough, so we offer this discount. Use the $125 option to preregister and pay the remaining $25 at the door. Or, just pay $150 at the door. Thanks for coming over! You won't regret it.

  • $125 Preregistration. Space will be limited. Reserve your spot, but be advised if you can't come you will lose this because you will be depriving a slot for someone else!

  • $1,000. Special Group Rate! Traveling in? Staying at hotel? Bring in 6 to 8 of your tightly connected students/friends of your group/school for only $1,000. (Please, all MUST be officially with you. ALL MUST be travelers, needing to stay in a hotel. No "sandbagging." If at least 6 do not show? Then, the tuition returns to individual attendance of $250 per person.) Group discount is paid at the door, via headcount at sign in.

  • Come early and stay late, and visit Nashville!

  • Come early and stay late and shoot pistols and long guns (like the Barrett .50 Cal sniper rifle.) Contact me for any special, customized firearms course you might want for Saturday night. Gun rentals, ammo and special instructors on Saturday night courses will cost extra. They are run by RR's military and police veteran staff.

  • Popular resturants and affordable hotels right acress the highway. Look up hotels (like the Avery-Sleep Inn) in Bellevue, TN - (the actual suburb name of Nashville.) There are three hotels right across the highway from the RR. Other Nashville area hotels are minutes away.

  • We have some training equipment for you to loan but you must bring all your gear too if you can!

* (Remember the Royal Range looks closed that early in the morning. Approach the front "wall" on the left side. Make a hard, fast turn right behind that thin front wall and you'll see the actual glass store front. Enter through the reguar front doors.)

 I can tell you right now...you don't want to miss this!" - Hock

"[I] Just skimmed your Apache knife books - bought 'em a few minutes ago. I am strangely moved; I had thought that most knife curriculum had a healthy dose of nonsense and that combining them with vague claims of American Indian descent made it worse.  Man - the information, the drills; I'm stunned. I teach fencing every day (my "day job", go figure); I know blade work - I'm not just impressed, I'm grateful for what you've done and the introduction to your ancestral culture, which gives it much more meaning than just a fascination with dangerous things. I will follow through with that 'call' I mentioned way back when. What wonderful work you've done. I hope people have found it and appreciate it." - Dayn DeRose, New Jersey-USA

"All experiences with you [Snake Blocker] are always 5 Stars times 10!  That includes family and friends." - Ken "Shark" Green, Arizonia-USA
