About Defenders USA
Defenders USA provides comprehensive basic, advanced, and tactical firearms and defensive training designed to teach introductory and advanced firearm safety and skills. The flagship course of Defenders USA is the “Defenders” Series – a twenty-hour defensive handgun training course targeted to civilians who are actually serious about defense of life and concealed carry of a handgun. Adam Winch, the creator of the Defenders Series, has been teaching defensive and tactical firearm courses to civilians and military personnel for approximately five years before creating Defenders USA.
Defenders USA was started as an answer to the need Adam saw for high-caliber defensive, advanced, and tactical training for the everyday person that is contextual and reality-based for not only the military and law enforcement communities but also for the daily carry needs of the everyday person who just wants to protect themselves and those they love. Adam received excellent training as a soldier and Police Officer but found that so many – far too many – and most who have a Concealed Handgun Permit – have never been properly guided into understanding the laws pertaining to using a weapon in defense. Worse, he found most gun owners and carriers have little or no formal training in the needed details of actually carrying a concealed handgun or in the defensive use of firearms. Adam also found most people rarely understanding the enormity of the legal, civil, and, financial, emotional, and social ramifications of what takes place when a firearm is used during an act of defense of life.
These realizations started a journey that has grown far more than expected as so many people began finding the value in Adam’s life experiences, his training, and how it all affected their lives for the better when all put together in high quality training.
“We help prepare and train those willing to stand in the gap
to defend themselves, their loved ones, and their fellow man”.
