Our Mission

A Guerrilla’s Approach is the ability to do more with less. Lacking resources, but through an adaptive mindset, determination, and grit, Guerrillas are capable of performing spectacular feats against impossible odds.

American Special Operations Forces are doctrinally trained as America’s Guerrillas and tip of the spear shock troops. Our Training adapts their lessons learned for application among law enforcement and the Department of Defense.

Aaron Barruga, Founder

I joined the military because of 9/11 and served as a Green Beret in the US Army’s Special Forces. Whether leading militia fighters in Afghanistan, conducting raids with Iraqi SWAT officers, or training foreign commandos in Asia, I learned an incontestable truth about war: everything comes down to brilliance in the basics.


In Special Forces, I saw a lot of what is done right operationally and in training. However, I also saw a lot of what is done wrong. My training material represents the sum total of both my successes and failures, and I program those lessons learned into classes that build more resilient first responders.


Our training is for uniformed professionals, and all material is always crosschecked by the following beliefs.


-Lead by doing


-There are no shortcuts, no secret methods, only flawless execution of the fundamentals


-Invest in others, so that they can lend you a hand when you need it the most
