Toronto Tactical Airsoft Close Combat College (TTAC3)

Toronto Tactical Airsoft Close Combat College

Is a member organization of the Fighting Arts Collective Toronto (FACT)

FACT maintains a five thousand square foot training facility located at Ossington and Dupont in Toronto.

TTAC3 is devoted to providing a community center for the Toronto Airsoft community within which Airsoft combative skills can be honed through the practice of weapon handling, target shooting and through tactical drills using the FACT training space as a training environment.

The FACT facility presents the opportunity for the Toronto Airsoft community to have a dedicated training and “gaming” facility devoted specifically to the interests of the Airsoft community. Special events, competitions and seminars can also be held at the FACT facilities.

In addition a Kit Exchange and Consignment shop is proposed to allow the community to recycle equipment ( except weapons) within the community.

TTAC3 will maintain an Office within FACT facilities and will maintain a web presence to promote Airsoft and the TTAC3 facility.

TTAC3 is a non partisan organization it will not promote or support any one group or organization TTAC3 is envisioned as a central community center for the entire community and to serve as a networking center for local airsoft groups.
