Lead Instructor —

I have been fortunate enough to train under some of the most respected firearms instructors in the country, incorporating the best and most practical methods and techniques courses.

I did ten years in the Marine Corps and currently work for the DOD, but I make no claim to being a combat veteran. I’ve learned much more about shooting and self-defense outside the military than I ever did during my service .

Every technique I teach is proven to work for average citizens looking to protect themselves, their families or their community. I offer a money back guarantee. If a student is dissatisfied with a course I will refund their money with no questions asked. After ten years and over 5000 students, no one has taken me up on that offer.

Selected instructors I’ve trained under include:

  • John Farnam
  • Louis Awerbuck (RIP)
  • Kelly McCann
  • Pat Rogers (RIP)
  • Jeff Gonzales
  • Pat Goodale
  • Tom Givens
  • Craig Douglas
  • Greg Ellifritz
  • Massad Ayoob
  • Kathy Jackson
  • Andrew Branca
  • Dave Spaulding
  • Chuck Haggard of "Agile Consulting"
  • Mike Green of "Green Ops"
