Israeli Tactical School in Linden,Virginia
Quality Firearms and Self Defense Education and Training for All Experience Levels

Welcome to my website, and thank you for visiting!

YOUR BEST TOOL FOR SELF-DEFENSE IS QUALITY EDUCATION!
My mission is to educate and train others to develop their self-defense mindset and skills so they may effectively  protect themselves and others when involved in a  stressful life threatening encounter.
I accomplish my mission by providing quality education and training in a professional, friendly, small class environment, and I am truly concerned about my students safety! Students can learn everything from fundamental handgun marksmanship techniques through advanced self-defense techniques, developing the proper self-defense mindset, and an understanding  how the body will react during a violent and stressful  encounter.

Students of all experience levels from the new shooter to the most accomplished shooter will be able to increase both their confidence and skills with a handgun during a life threatening encounter.
Self defense training should not only be learning shooting skills! Hand-to-hand training and education on laws, mindset, and many other facits of self-defense is also very important!


FIREARMS AND SELF-DEFENSE TRAINING IS MY FULL TIME JOB, AND I TAKE MY JOB AND MY STUDENTS SAFETY SERIOUSLY!!!
