Does Red Frog suggest customers bring specific products or gear for each tactical training course?

Yes and no, is the short answer.

For each class that Red Frog offers, we have a gear list which describes the items you need to bring to your training day. Red Frog reviews specific products and gear from various brands which we think are better equipped for our training courses. Checkout our blog to see what gear we recommend for your training day.

How many students might be in a Red Frog course at one time?

Most Red Frog courses have about six to 10 students. This allows Red Frog’s instructors who are former elite Special Operation Forces personnel, to give our students the individual attention they need while maintaining the group as a whole.
