Our classes prepare you to safely operate your firearm, effectively carry your concealed pistol, to effectively deploy it, and sensibly use it to defend yourself or others within the bounds of the law. We are not solely focused on what happens in the controlled training environment. Our instructors are always searching for better and more efficient methods. We will never tell you "Because that's the way we've always done it," or "Because that's what we learned in some class” when you ask a question. We know what happens in a fight because we've been there and seen it first-hand. Our courses reflect the reality of a real world fight.
All of us have a different foundation of experience, different body types, dexterity levels, and ability. Many courses do not recognize these differences and try to force every student into some preconceived mold. You will not see that in our classes. We teach students a firearms-based, self defense conceptual foundation and encourage our students to take these fundamental concepts and make them a daily part of their lives. Whether you are taking a basic class or have progressed to advances topics, our instruction will help you prevail in such situations.
At the basic level, we teach our students how to safely live with firearms in their environment. At the more advanced levels, we teach our students how to think through a situation and thereby how to win a potentially lethal encounter—not merely how to shoot at a paper target on a square range. We are committed to helping you grow as a responsible firearms owner and to making you a person who can effectively defend themselves and others. I hope you enjoy visiting the Sensible Self Defense Academy and we hope to serve you in a class very soon.
