Defenders USA – Defend yourself & those you love

Criminal with KnifeWhen a good day turns bad – really bad – what do you do?  If you find yourself in a place where you have to choose between becoming a victim or defending yourself, what do you do?  What if the potential victim is not you, but a loved one?  Or even a person you don’t know?  What do you do?

Defensive Firearms & Hand to Hand Training

Defenders USA teaches you how to defend yourself, your loved ones and your community through comprehensive defensive firearms training.  Our introductory, defensive, and advanced courses teach you handgun safety and skills, covering critical knowledge and tactics not found in many courses available to civilians.  If you are looking for knowledge and skills to protect yourself, your loved ones and your community, you have stepped out from the crowd.  Now, let Defenders USA provide you with the knowledge and skills you will need to become a responsible and effective defender.  Read on to learn more about our Defenders Series Defensive Handgun Course.

Adam Winch created Defenders USA from his experience and training while serving in the US Army as a Military Police Officer and as a Police Officer in the Grand Junction Police Department.  As a Police Officer, Adam saw many cases that may have been avoided if the victim had known how to break free and get away (unarmed) or how to defend themselves against a more serious threat (armed).  It is through this unique combination of military and police experience, that Adam created Defenders USA in hopes that teaching others would prevent another victim.

He brings his expertise into the classroom and range for an engaging and thought-provoking learning experience.  The courses are designed to  teach the importance of defensive training, both armed and unarmed,  to any audience –  so every one may feel confident they are prepared no matter what they may face.

With KKCO 11 News – April 2015

“I am sorry it has taken me a week to sit down and write but I wanted to thank you for the excellent training you gave me when I went to your Defenders handgun safety course and the CCW class the night before. I cannot tell you enough how much I learned from the classes.  There is SO MUCH more to using a gun properly and what comes afterward than I thought when I signed up for the class. And I appreciate the fun way you teach, it makes the  huge amount of information you gave us understandable and interesting.
   Having a gun is an awesome responsibility and hearing the legal aspects of it made it even more clear to me what a huge responsibility it is. I had no idea how much there is to it, not what I have seen on TV for sure! I was a little scared of it all but after actually shooting the way you taught us, I wasn’t so scared anymore. I know If I line up the way you taught us, with the grip you taught us, it isn’t hard to hit what you mean to hit. I have a lot more confidence now, I hope I never need it but you never know, and I thank you for it.
  Something else I did not expect-I had the longest conversation with my Dad than I have had in years! He is the reason I even took your class and he wanted to hear all about it and is excited for me to come visit so I can show him what I learned. And now my husband and I have something else we can do together. Robin says he may get one of those Rugers, he liked the one of yours he used so much, and that is the gun my Dad says he prefers also (when he uses a .22). So, family bonding! a benefit I did not expect.
  Again, Thank You! You are an excellent teacher and made a very serious subject come alive and made it easy to remember by making it FUN!  I have told all my friends about your class, they could see how excited I was about it.  All my best to you and Scott, thank you from Robin and me.”

“Great teacher! I feel we all are very fortunate to have been a part of his class.”
