Sparrow Defense provides professional training in firearms, defensive tactics, and emergency medical techniques. We offer services to individuals, law enforcement agencies, religious organizations, and businesses.

We continually refine our courses to provide students with the best instruction available. Training maintains a low student-to-instructor ratio. Each shooter receives individual attention and personal instruction.

If you've never held a rifle, pistol, or shotgun, our beginner workshops will teach safety and the fundamentals.

For experienced shooters, lessons and classes are designed to push and refine your skills. You will leave more confident and proficient than when you arrived.
