  Arizona Tactical Defense Training Institute™
   "Adaptive Tactics" for Law Enforcement, Military, Corporate Security Personnel
      and Civilian / Family Self-Defense  (armed and unarmed)

Train like you fight and FIGHT like your life depends on it !
Firearm and unarmed self-defense training are not something that should be static or textbook. To survive and prevail, we need to have trained and become dynamic. Developing an adaptive mindset is a critical part of that training. Adapt, Overcome, Prevail !   (Aptet, Expugna, mundi Valete)

We are experienced firearms, self-defense and tactics instructors, with a high level of competence in handgun (semi-auto and revolver), rifle, and shotgun applications. We also have traditional experience with formal martial arts (shorei-ryu karate, aikido and judo), as well as applied methods of Urban Self-Defense.

Range Day December 9, 2017 !  RESERVE YOUR SPOT
We have a Range Day planned for December 9 at Ben Avery Sport Shooting Complex. You will have the opportunity to participate in structured, ad-hoc, and situational drills (including, but not limited to: holster presentation, shoot on the move, malfunctions, reloads, situational stress drills, defensive drills, and CQ drills). For more information visit our Range Day page.

Upcoming Comprehensive CCW Class - Saturday January 13, 2018 !

We have scheduled another one of our comprehensive AZ CCW Classes for Saturday January 13, 2018.  Our class runs a full day and includes not only the required review of AZ Revised Statutes, but also - Safety Rules, Basic Firearm Operation, Grip, Stance, Sight Picture, Sight Alignment, Trigger Control, considerations for the aftermath of a shooting, range practice, self-defense scenarios, and much, much more !

Sure... you can take the $49 class from other instructors to save a few dollars, but will they take you to the range and will you actually shoot your firearm ? Or...  will you just sit in a classroom and review some powerpoint slides ?  Carrying a firearm should include safety and responsibility. We do not take short-cuts. Our CCW class is real-world, comprehensive and taught by highly experienced instructors. Don't risk your safety or walk away without a full spectrum of training just to save a few dollars.
