Classes Offered

I’ve been fortunate to have trained with most of the top firearms instructors in the country. The very best of them is Citizens Defense Research. The instructors are true experts in their fields of helping you become not only a better shooter, but also a better self defender. What they teach applies to everyday life for everyday people. l give them my highest recommendation.

Foundational Defensive Training

CDR offer some of the best and most important classes available today, taught by deeply knowledgeable and genuinely caring instructors.
Their focus on individual attention and honest investment in making you a better, more capable version of you is unmatched. Whether you’re new to shooting, entering the armed lifestyle, or fine tuning your ability to protect yourself and the people who matter to you, CDR deserves a spot high on your list.

CDR features well thought out curricula, focused on the specific contexts faced by the students’ real-world lives. This is not “tactical fantasy band camp” and features quality hands-on coaching. Highly recommend.

Cancelation Policy

The only way we can know that a class is full is when the specified number of students have registered and paid their tuition fees. Once a class is full, we have to turn away others who would like to attend. If you cancel too close to class, or fail to show up for class, you keep someone else from attending and would cost us a student. Please be sure you can attend a class before signing up for it. We believe this policy is fair to you, to other students, and to us. In order to minimize this, we have strict policies on pre-payment and cancellation.

To secure a slot in a course full payment is required (unless otherwise specified). If a deposit is made, the balance will be due 30 days before the course starts. Cancellations by a student inside the thirty day window will be non-refundable but creditable to another Citizens Defense Research class anywhere the student wishes to train, within 18 months of the cancellation. Cancellations by students the week of the course will be non-refundable and will receive no credit. Cancellations by Citizens Defense Research will be fully refunded within 14 calendar days.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!
