The Defenders Series is a series of three in-depth and excellent defensive firearm training courses developed to help prepare and train the anyone in safe, effective and responsible use of realistic, defensive firearms use that fits the speeds of crime and attacks in America, the full Defenders Series. It is a 20 hour training experience filled with current laws and how these apply to you, use of force considerations, mental and emotional and legal preparedness for dangerous situations, defense of self, others and our homes, and hands-on firearms training using realistic defensive tactics and techniques.

The Defenders Series is excellent for anyone, from any skills level and even armed professions pull a lot out of this course.

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!”
