The Tim Kennedy Experience


If you have been following our social media channels or blog, you may have noticed the wonderful partnership we have established with Tim Kennedy. Our employees had the pleasure of meeting him when he visited the USCCA headquarters two months ago, and we’re honored to have Tim as a USCCA Member.

That’s why we’re giving away two chances to win a “Tim Kennedy Experience.” Two individuals* will be selected at random (and allowed to bring one guest each) to receive hand-to-hand combat and live-fire training from Tim Kennedy. Transportation, lodging and meals will be covered by the USCCA from Nov. 4-8, 2020. (The dates are subject to change since Tim is an active member of the U.S. Military.) We are giving away this package — valued at $20,000 per person — for free! See below for an itinerary of what we’ve got planned and the cool stuff we’re giving away.

Day 1 (Wednesday):

On the first day, the winners will be flown to Austin, Texas, arriving midday. They will be shuttled from the airport to their hotel at the Westin Austin at The Domain. Hotel amenities include an on-site restaurant, a fitness center, an outdoor pool and 24-hour room service. The group will then head over to 5.11’s Austin location. Each person will receive a $1,000 store credit to go on a shopping spree. Need a backpack? How about some new tactical pants? Purchase whatever you like.

Day 2 (Thursday)

The next morning, start the day with a workout at the Onnit Gym. Enjoy one of the fabulous smoothies — like the Warrior or Keto Mint Chip — at the Onnit Cafe & Smoothie Bar. From noon to 1:00 p.m., hit the mat with Tim Kennedy at Gracie Humaitá Austin. Grab some authentic Mexican for lunch at Veracruz Tacos and coffee from the Cuvée Coffee Bar. (The famed coffee bar was founded by U.S. Navy veteran Mike McKim in 1998.) Spend the afternoon live-fire training with Tim at The Range at Austin, a 52,000-square-foot range facility. (Instruction will be based on your level of experience.)

Each individual (the two winners and their guests) will also receive this incredible bundle of guns, knives and gear:

  • FN 509 Midsize MRD
  • FN 15 SRP Tactical
  • Gerber Fastball Knife
  • Gerber StrongArm Knife
  • Gerber Center-Drive w/Bit Set
  • Gerber Impromptu Tactical Pen
  • Gerber Strap Cutter
  • Gerber CustomFit Quad Sheath
  • Leupold DeltaPoint Pro Scope
  • 2,000 Rounds of Federal Ammo
  • Pelican V770 Vault Single Rifle Case
  • Pelican 1535TRVL Air Travel Case
  • Pelican 1615TRVL Air Travel Case

End the evening enjoying some authentic Texas BBQ with Tim.

Day 3 (Friday)

Start the day with the Normatec Boot Experience at one of Tim’s regular gyms or training facilities. After lunch, take a helicopter to Reveille Peak Ranch, a 1,300-acre outdoor center about an hour outside of Austin. There, you will conduct shooting and first-aid drills, joined by Dr. Mike Simpson. (Drills and intensity will be based on your experience level, age and other factors.) After an action-packed afternoon, spend the last night with Tim, joining him for dinner in the city of Burnet.

Day 4 (Saturday)

This one is left up to you. Spend your last day exploring Austin. If you are into history or art, check out the Texas State Capitol, Bullock Texas State History Museum, LBJ Presidential Library, Blanton Museum of Art or The Driskill. Dining, entertainment and shopping options include the Rainey Street Historic District, South Lamar, Sixth Street, SoCo District, Movie House & Eatery and Stubbs. For nature and wildlife enthusiasts, don’t miss the Austin Zoo, Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail at Lady Bird Lake, Mount Bonnell or Zilker Metropolitan Park. Or, if you’d rather lay low and kick back at the hotel on your last day, that’s alright too.

Day 5 (Sunday)

Fly home with unforgettable memories and great stories to share with your family and friends. How many people can say that they spent a few days training and hanging out with the famous Tim Kennedy?
