The Handgun Martial Arts Center or HMAC is unique concept created
in 2009 in Tucson Arizona by Jeffrey Prather. HMAC blends Japanese
ancient martial art training philosophies with American cutting edge
HMAC instills patriotism and responsibility via dojo like classes
training off range, on photo realistic, wall mounted targets utilizing
plastic, rubber or unloaded and brightly flagged, cleared handguns to
practice advanced techniques that pertain not to the square range and
flat target , but the ever changing, 360 degree grim reality of the
gunfight. Handgun Martial Artists convene on range to practice these
techniques in live fire quarterly for reality check and ranking.
Time after time it is the American Citizen whether military, police or
civilian that stands up, steps into the breach, moves to the sound of the
guns, and saves the sheep from the wolf.
We are the sheep dogs. And because we are reacting and responding
to danger, we will not have time to respond with anything other than the
weapons we have on our person at the time.
That means a handgun. Therefore we must be ready and worthy to
perform the impossible when called. We must be able to shoot to stop
the next threat, slay the next dragon, but never, ever hit the innocent. In
the midst of the carnage and chaos, we must intercede between the
good and evil, and use our handgun and skills to protect life and
freedom. We must be Handgun Martial Artists.
HMAC is the American martial art.
