At a civilian and sporting level it is a well researched fact that those that have
safe and considerate education in the use of firearms and hunting make for
the most stable and responsible citizens. We provide the opportunity to develop and entrench these safe skills and habits in a controlled environment; that students may take them into their lives and the community, perpetuating and enhancing traditional New Zealand culture and way of life.


Sparrowhawk NZ offers dynamic and practical courses promoting the concept
of “The Modern Technique” developed by the late Col. Jeff Cooper over 30 years ago. This proven foundation of embedded skills and mental conditioning is used as the basis for Sparrowhawk’s skill at arms training doctrine.


The opportunity to study the “skill at arms” in a formal institution has not been offered across this stratum in New Zealand using the facilities or the level of expertise Sparrowhawk NZ has the abilitiy to resource.
