At the core of my training is truth, and will you be able to make the correct choices at the moment of truth.

Life can present violence to us even when we believe we are in paradise, so you must prepare for action.

“The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.”

Winston Churchill

Having credentials is not enough, and I continually strive to present information to students in a manner that is unique to their circumstances. And this is the reason for you to engage in defensive training that has a strong philosophical overlay. It is the foundation for success based on reality.

Reality does not care about your political or religious beliefs, and it does not care about your station in life or how you were raised. It is the one thing we must accept in order to move forward in a defensive encounter.

Life can present violence to us even when we believe we are in paradise.  Knowing this does not require we live in an exhausting states of constant state of hyper-vigilance. It also does not mean we live in a condition of complete unawareness.

It’s matter of recognizing when you need to prepare for action and the willingness to put your plan forward. You need to be aware of what part of the rollercoaster your on. Your own values and beliefs will lead to over-reaction or under reaction to the realities you face. You are responsible for you.

I have lived up on 3 continents: Africa, Europe and North America. Each of those places has been formative in my view of the world and those experiences has inspired me to teach skills that incorporated not just physical skills but skills that help you better interpret your environment and the best courses of action in non-optimal situations.

I have been credentialed in Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, Personal Protections inside the home and outside the home. In addition, I am a certified CA DOJ Firearms Instructor. I believe that teaching is the greatest act of optimism, and my goal is for you to open your mind to all the consequences of your actions and inactions in a fight for your life.

I consider one of my eternal duties is to provide you with a solid foundation. This comes through in the form of knowledge and practical skills that help you navigate through shallow, untested, falsely opinionated advice that is prevalent in this age of excitement.
