Welcome to our website. Whether you are a long-time devotee of Jeff Cooper’s work or new to his concepts we hope you find something educational and perhaps inspirational here.
Jeff Cooper was a life-long student in the warrior/scholar mode. He believed that the path to a worthwhile life lay in adherence to three ideals: understand the problem, pull your weight, appreciate. A large part of the first two ideals is self-reliance and a large part of self-reliance is the ability to defend oneself against evil. To that end, he devoted most of his life to developing the most efficient use of small arms against immediate threat. He developed a philosophy, a technique and a school—-Gunsite.
The Jeff Cooper Legacy Foundation was formed shortly after his death in 2006 to assure that his teachings lived on. To this end, the Foundation raises money from donations and offers scholarships to those who wish to enhance their self-reliance with skill at confronting immediate threat. If this concept appeals to you, we welcome you to read on.
