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 wanted to give you a few words of mine about the course. First a little background. I’ve takin a couple of NRA classes, went through a C.A.R. class and have shot IDPA. I’ve also watched a few vids, but nothing really felt like it was exactly what I was looking for. And If anyone knows sometimes you don’t know what it is you are looking for untill you find it. I think it all boils down to what we all want is to shoot fast and accurate and then faster and then more accurate.  So I decided to take the Defenders Series classes with an open mind. I mean really, what is it that I had to lose… and the answer is nothing.  I found EXACTLY what I was looking for! The basis of pistol fighting. I was taught how to shoot fast with accuacy in a real world mindset. Knowledge is power! Knowledge and know-how to defend yourself from an assailant means living! I’m extremely impressed how the classes where conducted and will be attending more training in the near future. Thank you for offering such outstanding training!”
