What is Able Shepherd?

Able Shepherd is an elite level self-defense program utilizing armed and unarmed skills. Our goal is to make you and those around you safer.

“Able Shepherd is a progressive training program designed to empower members, known as “Shepherds”, with a variety of skills to better themselves in order to protect, guide and strengthen their communities. The motto is “Take Care of One Another”. Shepherds are guided by biblical principles and hold themselves to a higher standard.

Some of the best parts of the “Teams” that I greatly miss (brotherhood, camaraderie, accountability, etc.), I can have again with my buddies here at home. This is about more than just shooting guns… but we shoot guns… a lot.”    
– Jimmy Graham, Director ASRTC, veteran US Navy SEAL

“Able Shepherd” is a designation for individuals that have:
– Attained an elevated standard of training with primary and secondary weapons platforms (rifle/pistol).
– Aspired to a higher standard that is predetermined from within the group
– Have agreed to be accountable to one another.

Able Shepherds receive access to the Able Shepherd Group on Facebook, Challenge Coin, and Patch.

Held to a higher standard.

Uniformity: Have displayed a high level of proficiency in reality based validations and have demonstrated the ability to shoot, move, and communicate with team members under stress.

Safety: Consistently manipulates weapons platforms with the highest level of efficiency and safety.

Accuracy: Have voluntarily subjected themselves to Phase Line Evaluations for accurate fire under stress and have passed the designated standard.

ASR training center has set a standard for a progressive training program so that if/when an Able Shepherd is called upon, there is a reliable assumption that they are ready and able to serve.
