Arizona Tactical Defense Training Institute™


  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 !

We are highly 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.
