What Is Ready5?

Ready5 is about empowering individuals; specifically, empowering you, the Citizen.

Ready5 goes beyond preparing for the worst and helps people live life to the fullest. Members are not only equipped to protect themselves and their loved ones from dangerous situations. They are also empowered to understand their limits and confidently take risks that they might have previously avoided (e.g. rock climbing, remote travel, adventure expeditions, etc.).

Ready5 is a company that provides holistic, ongoing training tailored for the Citizen as well as a community of like-minded individuals like you, that want to care for and protect their loved ones and walk through the world with no fear.

Preparedness leads to confidence and self-reliance - a knowledge that come what may, you’re prepared.
— BSA Fieldbook

What you will get out of Ready5

You will learn:  fieldcraft, emergency preparedness planning, first aid, communications, resiliency, how to prepare your mind and body for emergencies, etc.

You will do:  unarmed self-defense, tactical shooting for self-defense, wilderness survival expeditions, physical fitness training, mental preparedness techniques, etc.

You will be ready ... for emergency situations you never saw coming.


How does it work?

Ready5 isn't something you do. Ready5 is something you become a part of... a lifestyle in a community of like-minded individuals that journey with you.

Ready5 training has a weekly "core" training of self-defense with an orbiting set of training for firearms, emergency preparedness, and special training. Below is our weekly schedule:

Monday through Thursday:

6-8 pm: Martial Arts & Self-Defense Class - The foundation of this training our self-defense systems are drawn from old Samurai battlefield schools that have adapted to our modern world (more info about this art at www.Bujinkan-SanDiego.com). We have extracted the best practices from Military, Law Enforcement, and Civilian defensive tactics and tailored them for the Citizen. No experience is required, these techniques can be used by anyone. There is also a bit of functional training to get you "fighting fit." All members are welcome to this class.


8-9 pm: Emergency Preparedness -or- Firearms Dry Practice - You're most likely here already for self-defense & martial arts training. One time a week, we extend the day (since you're already here) to include topics to get you up to speed in preparing for emergencies or practicing weapons skills.

Emergency Preparedness - Broken down into 12 domains, this is the planning, training, equipping, and mindset needed to be ready for emergencies. This training is offered in an ongoing series where you will be able to engage with instructors and other students in the community.

Firearms Dry-Fire Practice - During these training sessions, you will be learning the fundamental skills of firearms operation, manipulation, & tactics in a completely safe manner. You will be utilizing your own weapons to refine skills without the bang (i.e. no live ammunition or firing). Each set of dry practices is focused on specific topics that you will be able to shoot during the live-fire range day at the end of each month. More info on Dry-Fire Practice here.


On scheduled Saturdays, we will have training on specific topics. Examples include:

  • Fieldcraft - The skills and craft of wilderness and urban survival. Held outdoors at our training facility in Ramona.
  • Modern Homesteading - As a person prepares for emergencies and advances along the continuum of self-reliance, they are increasingly homesteading. This discipline extends Emergency Preparedness. This is held at our training facility in Ramona or other location tailored to the topic.
  • Shoot House Event - Individual & Team Tactics are taught and practiced utilizing MilSim techniques. This enables you to practice engaging actors simulating an opposing force. This is some of the best training a civilian can get.

Please check our schedule for what is being offered.

Range Days:

Usually on the last Sunday of the month, we have a live-fire range day where you will practice the skills learned during the dry-fire practice sessions.

We offer an "On-Ramp" every other month for brand new shooters as well as advanced classes for more experienced students.

A typical range day will look like:

8:00 am - 9:00 am - Long Range Precision Marksmanship Academics

9:00 am - 12:00 pm - Long Range Precision Marksmanship live fire

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm - Handgun Fundamentals Academics for new shooters

1:00 pm - 5:00 pm - Handgun Fundamentals live fire

1:00 pm - 5:00 pm - Advanced live fire (handgun, shotgun, or rifle)

Please check our schedule for what is being offered.

All of these disciplines revolve around and are tailored to serve the Citizen; to prepare them to be highly skilled, equipped, and capable to handle any challenges life may throw at them.

This schedule is design with the busy working professional in mind. With your membership, you just need to signup for a class and you're in. Attend the classes you need to and skip what you don't need.  

If you have questions, please contact our staff!


Getting Started

Our programs are membership-based and month-to-month. We specifically avoid binding contracts, to ensure retention through quality and value of our programs, rather than obligation.

All members are vetted through a highly-selective on-boarding process designed to keep out weirdos, big egos, and bad attitudes.

To get started, contact us by calling (858) 226-6985, email at Team@Ready5.io, or via the form below.

From there, we'll schedule a time for us to meet at our facility in Scripps Ranch. Once we determine we like each other, we'll get you into your first class and begin your journey.

We look forward to training with you!
