Our mission has always been to provide principal based training that directly develops professional and highly effective responses to high stress violent encounters - regardless of the past level of experience of our students!
Defense Midwest is prides itself on being dedicated and focused on the learning experience of each student. Context is vital to everything in a tactical environment - our POI's are contextually relevant to real world applications. Our programs are built on 'principals' and 'priorities of work' that revolve around basic repetitive skills and manipulations. We believe that a solid foundational principal skill set gives the lone operator, the 2-man team and small units the greatest advantage to prevail in high stress violent encounters, that occuring in a world of ambiguity. As one of our early instructors coined his programs - we provide the basis for 'Some of the Answer' and we build confidence and skill for you to adapt the 'Rest of the Answer'!
Defense Midwest was founded May 2003. In the years following we have continued to build and develop both our physical facilities and our Points of Instruction to best challenge and help our students progress in their goals. That continues today with the addition and development of a second facility to better suit our small unit and team clients with a world class facility that allows a wide array of training contingencies to be added to the curriculum.

They are reserved soley for the use of Defense Midwest LLC certified and fully insured instructors and for use as a host facility for other instructors specifically vetted and recruited to teach with us.
