RSKTKR Consulting (Originally "RiskTaker Services") was formed in 2004 due to a recognition that the current training in Military and Law Enforcement circles was lacking real world guidelines and some fundamental skill-sets were flawed. Recognizing this "Doc" Hewett set out to provide better training in a more realistic manner to supersede and improve on some of the inherent flaws in the system. The RSKTKR Training philosophy revolves around not what we can do but what we can teach you to do. You will not see a bunch of show-offs in our classes. "Doc" and his team teach you in a friendly manner what you need to become a better shooter.
"Doc" spent 11 years in the U.S. Navy, 5 years as a Security Specialist, he transitioned to being a Corpsman (Combat Medic) and he was attached to a Marine Corps Force Reconnaissance Company, where he was responsible for the health and safety of the team while it was doing all forms of Special Operations Missions.
He became a Civilian in 2001 and began working in the Middle East and Europe as a Private Military Contractor, working Static and Dynamic positions as a PSD Operator and Force Protection Specialist. After returning to the States he took his experience and went to work at the Federal Air Marshal Training center in Atlantic city NJ teaching Advanced Pistol and Concealed Carry to the Federal Law enforcement Officers that protect our skies.
He returned to contracting and worked for Armor Group as a Team Leader, and SOC as a Rangemaster/Firearms Instructor for the BESF, spending time at King Abdullah Special Operations Training Center in Amman Jordan training personnel for the Baghdad embassy. He then did a short stint for the Army as a Firearms Instructor in the S.E.R.E. Program.
"Red" is "Doc's" wife and has been teaching Martial Arts for 10 years with a short competitive career, and Firearms for 6 years. She holds a degree in Psychology and heads up the administrative side of the house making sure all the classes run smoothly.
"Doc" and "Cruz" have many friends and contacts in the industry that fill in on an as needed basis to either Lead a class or act as an AI. All of them are more than qualified to teach and meet or exceed Industry Standards for Instructor capability.
