Our training philosophy involves many strategies and all are tailored to the ability of each individual client. One of those strategies involve what we intimately refer to as crawl, walk, run. It is important that clients understand the basics and "why" of it all before they can put it together at full speed. We are force multipliers at heart, understanding that our clients may be required to perform the skills we teach them to save their lives. Our systems have not only been successful for our Team, they have also been successful for our clients as well. Below are the links to companies we are proud to have assisted in the development of their training and workplace safety strategies. In addition, please take the time to read what are clients are saying about our training programs.

I have taken multiple courses as a student and instructor student with Tailored Defense over the last four years, and received nothing but knowledge, skills, ability, & confidence after every session to go further than I did before. If you want a professional that will give you the burning desire to better yourself in your abilities & knowledge, look no further.

Thank you very much for the recent handgun safety course that I took with Aquil on Saturday. I left the class feeling more confident around firearms and I look forward to furthering my knowledge in this space. I highly recommend this course for folks at any level - Aquil's knowledge and passion for this space is undeniable. He is a great teacher!

I just want to thank you, first, for what you've done with my Glock. It looks brand new and I also want to thank you for the course. I credit you, in part with what happened this weekend as it could've ended much worse. Your expertise and how you taught in the course helped me do my job and I hope you place this in the testimonial section of your website. I will also inform all of my associates in my security staff to go to your company for good training as well as my co-workers in the Army. I would also like to see you regarding some modifications to my Glock and will definitely attend more of your courses as time allows. Thank you.

Good Morning. Glad to hear you are back. I am looking forward to your range opening so I can get some practice in. I can't thank your staff enough for the special one-on-one training that they provided so I could complete the Advance course. That one day helped me greatly and for that I will always be grateful. Please thank them again for taking time to teach only one student on that day. I learned so much that day and have a greater knowledge for gun use. I am glad you are back and I look forward to doing future business with you, your company, and staff.

It has been a year since I have moved from the area and I wish to say thank you for the incredible customer service and incredible training that you have afforded me. Being that I am back in the Northern part of VA, I am having a very difficult time finding a "Teacher" as yourself. It is as the saying goes, you don't know what you have until its gone! I hope the good people of Baltimore understand that you are the best of the best! People may smirk at my comment, yet I have left this area and have yet to find the caliber of teacher as yourself! I wish you best of luck and hope that anyone who reads this understands the level of education that will be taught is second to none.

Wonderful Class! I've learned a lot and your training has introduced drills for me to practice on my own. I really like the way it was presented in a realistic manner and applied to the situations that can happen in daily life.

I've received my training certificate in the mail today and wanted to thank you for setting up an excellent Defensive Pistol Course last weekend. The methods that you train and your common sense approach made this an incredibly worthwhile course and exceeded my expectations.  I will highly encourage anyone I know wishing to expand their knowledge and improve their technique to attend this clinic. If anyone is stationed at FT. Meade and hasn't heard of the Tailored Defense Training Group they are missing out on an awesome opportunity to learn some skills and I'm definitely sorry I hadn't found you guys sooner! Also, I very much appreciated your professionalism and excellent teaching- I've never had a marksmanship instructor go to that level of detail- to me it's a testament to your positive attitude and care for the people you train. Once again, thanks and I wish you and Tailored Defense Training Group all the best in the future.

This was absolutely a wonderful course! I've been shooting all of my life and I still walked away with more knowledge than I walked in with!
