I specialize in analyzing and understanding the needs of
every student's skills, habits, methods of learning,
and physical limitations that may be present, and identifying their strengths and developing their weakness to become better shooters.
I'm a humble instructor who listens to my students,
and I'm willing to learn from other instructors and counselors,
take their advice, and share my wisdom.
That is why I always try to better myself by taking
new classes and continuing my education.
The instructor must continuously improve their course
and stay fresh and current.
As an NRA Instructor, my number one priority is safety,
and the NRA rules for safely handling a firearm are the main focus of all our classes. I think someone can be an excellent shooter, have safety nailed down, and run a competent course; however, a good instructor should be able to work with any student to make them a better shooter.
As a realistic instructor, I carry many hours daily;
I live by what I teach and do every day and some
practical scenarios you may encounter.
I listen to my students and what kind of guns they have,
or I recommend, after analyzing their strengths and weakness,
size of the hands, recoil management, etc.
I understand that every student it's different,
and your firearms needs may be unique.
That is part of my job, working with what you
have and create a better shooter.
Check my NRA qualifications as an instructor,
and I am NRA certified and qualified to teach the
classes you want to take.
Remember that someone who is ex-military,
even an ex-military trainer is not qualified to train civilians
in firearms since it is two different worlds.
Military training is offensive but in the civilian world,
it is defensive training.
Again, If you do this, it just may save your life,
which is why you're taking the training first.
Trust me when I say that you won't be clearing rooms,
busting down doors, going roll-over prone under cars, or shooting through windshields any time soon or ever, unless you're a law enforcement officer or deployed to Afghanistan.
Let me train you on a more natural life situation scenario.
My teaching experience is focused on the everyday student
because knowledge does not make an instructor!
What I mean by this is that just knowing doesn't mean you can teach.
It goes with the teaching style, but it expands it to how long
I have been teaching, how many classes a month,
and how many satisfied students, women or men, I reached.
My classes are objective based, which means all students should
have that particular lesson down before I move on to the next task.
In our classroom, we use (TPI) Total Participation Involvement
Students learn better by DOING, rather than by watching.
This is a very interactive course in which students will practice the fundamentals being taught and will participate actively in the class.
I encourage questions to be asked at any time and ask if you
have any questions before proceeding to the next class or drill.
My Classes are for up to six students at a time, and most
are private classes for couples, families, and working teams.
I built my classroom and Private outdoor shooting gun range
because indoor gun ranges are scary.
Someone with a driver's license can rent a gun, get some ammo and targets, and have no experience in the fundamentals, safety,
or how to clear malfunction will be shooting next to me.
I made the class fun by staying on topic and answering questions.
I like when the student can go home and practice the fundamentals
and create that much-needed muscle memory that they learn
in my class because I can teach them and show them how to do it,
but I can give them experience and the repetition
needed in a day of class.
For me, it's important to remember that you are paying for my knowledge, experience, credentials, and time and that
you feel you are getting your money's worth.
NRA Instructors are considered the "Gold Standard"
regarding firearms instruction.
But whether you are looking for an NRA Certified Instructor,
they are not all the same. Every instructor has their style and flair,
so you want to find out if it is compatible with yours.
I start from scratch and teach my students the correct fundamentals of shooting. Everyone needs a refreshing course, especially those that have been doing this forever with no formal education and the proper technique to apply shooting fundamentals.
Our teaching environment in our classroom is often the first impression many students get when they arrive.
The teaching environment also can make or
break the concentration of new shooters.
I believe that attention is one of the principal tenets of the
NRA regarding firearms training, our smoke-free classroom,
small classroom size, and minimal distractions on the range.
Other items that may help the student learning process
include clean restrooms, an air-conditioned or heated classroom,
and snacks to keep the student focused on the lesson.
The only thing on our walls or tables is firearm-related,
with No ads, No Sales of anything else.
I'm an instructor that is flexible enough to teach
multiple acceptable methods.
I have been so lucky that even at gun shows, the instructor
comes to me to teach their students how to shoot.
Even more, most of my students held a concealed carry for years but never carried cause they didn't feel comfortable with what
they learned on a 2-hour video and shooting
three rounds off a .22cal on a bucket of sand.
They want to learn how to defend themselves in a real-life situation,
draw from concealed (not allowed on an indoor gun range) multiple targets, and real-life scenarios.
That is why I have a real-life scenarios simulator for training.
I hold a full NRA instructor and range Liability insurance to cover every inch of our training center.
