American Freedom Defensive Training Institute, AFDTI, was started after I became a pistol instructor certified by the National Rifle Association (The NRA) around 2009.
In short order I came to understand that most people, here in Michigan, who take a CPL Class are poorly prepared mentally to carry a pistol, let alone ready to discharge their firearm to defend themselves or their family.
The Need for Ongoing Training
As I began to mature as an instructor and a pistol handler, I found that many (if not most) individuals who were CPL or CCW holders did not know how to present their pistols from the holster or from concealment. I took the time to look at the various shooting disciplines that were available here in Michigan and I came to the realization that most were “sports oriented” with the mechanical skills of a sports discipline but few were “defense oriented”, emphasizing the muscle mechanics of tactical defensive shooting. I decided that NON BITTER “Clingers” such as myself needed to have ongoing training to develop and keep the muscle memory and mindset necessary to be truly effective in a “real life” defensive situations.
Defense of yourself and your loved ones is not a privilege. . . It’s a right!
If you are going to exercise your right to carry a pistol whether concealed or openly, knowing how to handle it properly is an honorable RIGHT and RESPONSIBILITY. Training is absolutely necessary to learn and maintain the proper mindset and physical skills in order to handle yourself and your firearm in a “real life” threatening situation.
