Along with this, Instructor Cohen interviewed and trained with Israeli Special Forces to widen his understanding on how different countries deal with this issue. 

In addition to this, Instructor Cohen has also taken basic and advanced classes under Micah Harris of Tacticalifornia. During the class he was approached by a Law Enforcement Officer who expressed his amazement on Instructor Cohen's proficiency with his firearm. He again completed top of the class.
