MDFI offers sound, effective and professional training to create a citizenry that is competent and confident in their chosen defensive disciplines. We believe that by building a solid defensive foundation, our students will be prepared for the possibility of using force, life-saving tools and their skills to get them through any bad situation that may arise. Holding true to the fact that no situation is the same, MDFI courses are void of the dogma of “our way or the highway”.

This Isn't Tactical Training.
Our Goal Is To Help Prepare You For Every Day Life.

Catering to the beginner and the experienced defensive student alike, MDFI staff will work to ensure that all participants walk away with the benefits of professional training, evaluation and feedback.

  • The MDFI cadre truly is a world class group. I have had a great time in every single class I've taken with them and learned so much in every single one.
    Considering my experiences with them, it doesn't surprise me at all that classes fill so early.

  • I've been shooting for years, and considered myself competent in my manipulation of my guns. I have learned over the 5 MDFI classes I've taken, that I could pull a trigger, but had a lot to learn, and still do. But from ysintg to long gun cover and movement, I've become a more competent and responsible gun owner. And a more responsibly armed American. Thanks again, and can't wait for next year!

  • I was lucky enough to attend the MDFI class called "You suck it's not the gun”. I don't think we had anyone in our class that didn't have a marked improvement.
    I would highly recommed this class for all shooters, new and experenced, as it does not matter how long you have been shooting, it is ALWAYS a good idea to spend time on fundamentals. Trek does a great job explaining everything, and keeps the class light and fun, and ego free. You're there to learn, not to try to show up your neighbor.

  • As always I really enjoyed the classes this weekend. The skills I learned as a brand new shooter over two years ago in your first classes down here have allowed me to go and seek out other training where the habits and practices learned have been proven to allow me to train and succeed in safe manner no matter the course. Your ability to teach and make me think critically in foundation level courses continues to be well worth my time and money.

  • Thank you for such a wonderful class this past weekend. I wasn’t sure what to expect and it definitely exceeded my expectations. I’m a big proponent of learning as much as you can to be prepared in all situations and I left that class with a wealth of knowledge. I had no idea I had so many less than lethal options available to me.

  • Thanks again for a great class this weekend. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed it, and learned a lot. Your attitude and sense of humor was a breath of fresh air for me as a vet (and former industry member) that is burned out on all the tactical peacocking. You balance professionalism and credibility, with a geniuine realness and humor incredibly well.
    You and your cadre really made my girlfriend feel special, and like you wanted to help her learn, and even laugh. She is really sensitive to egos and self centered people, and had it been another class where that is the norm, her growth in this discipline would have stopped yesterday.
    I'm going to continue to urge family and friends who have one foot in the door, but haven't taken developing their skills seriously yet, now that I know there is a safe an informative place for me to send them. I look forward to training with you in the future. You are a great ambassador to the industry, and this lifestyle.
