The Mission

Our Mission is to Develop Professional and Effective Responses to High Stress Violent Encounters - No Matter, the Level of Experience of our Students

Defense Midwest prides itself on being dedicated to the learning experience of each student. Context is vital to everything in a tactical environment and we always try to present our materials realistically and contextually to whatever application we are providing training for. We teach and constantly reinforce basic skills and principles - we don't claim to have any secret knowledge or tactics. We believe that a solid foundation in sound principles is what gives the lone individual, 2-man team, or small unit the greatest advantage to prevail in high stress violent encounters. As one of our first professional instructors coined his training program - we offer 'Some of the Answer'! 

The Instructors

Buck Peddicord is the Defense Midwest Director of Training and is the primary instructor for most all Defense Midwest courses. He constantly attends training whenever and wherever possible to keep updated on applicable personal skills and current tactics techniques and principals. We, as an organization, are well aware that no one individual has all the answers - especially in an ever changing environment like personal and small and large unit combat. For this reason, we prefer to focus our training around principles and basic tactics - no matter how bad the situation has been we have, ourselves, always fallen back on the basics.

We also try to bring in as many quality instructors to suppliment and augment our programs with different slants and perspectives on the current state of tactics and techniques.
