Welcome to the SAF Training Division

home1The firearms training community has lacked a nationwide training program specifically directed at training the new and inexperienced shooter in the defensive use of the most common platforms of firearms – handguns, shotguns and carbines. Also lacking were national classes covering in-depth non firearms subjects, OC Spray, Response to an Active Threat, Home and Vehicle safety, House of Worship Safety, Business Place safety, Vacation Safety and more. The SAFTD has a SAFE Program to teach situational awareness, defensive strategies and tactics to keep you safe in your daily life.
Beginning in early 2014 experienced instructor trainers from throughout the country were recruited to act as the core of SAFTD. Today the SAFTD has over 65 student and instructor classes and is offering more every year.

All of the courses offered are presented with the defensive use of the individual firearm in mind at different levels for a smooth transition to more advanced defensive techniques. While familiar foundational material is presented, additional defensive topics and activities are included such as firearm selection, holsters, use of force, discussions about legal issues, use of cover and concealment, the defensive stance, methods of aiming your defensive firearm, how your body will react to a defensive situation and a broad range of incremental live fire drills to build the student’s shooting skill level.

The SAFTD has also partnered with the NSC (National Safety Council) to bring high quality CRP/AED and First Aid to our students.
