Learning from Experience

Our Instructors share their real world stories and share tips and techniques from their law enforcement, military and private security experiences.

Instructor B

Served with first Marine Special Operations Battalion from 2006-2011. He completed multiple tours to Afghanistan as a member of a direct action raid team. He is a school trained foreign weapons instructor and has trained students on weapons and tactics in over six different countries. Prior to service in the Marine Corps Instructor B had no formal weapons training. He was taught advanced tactical shooting by a single motivated instructor during a four month shooting course. That instructor was later tragically killed in action. The loss of Instructor B’s friend and mentor inspired him to continue his Instructor’s legacy of never giving up on a student, no matter their skill set.
