Course was not only a lot of fun but left me having a set of skills I hope I never need.

This class was taught by Bernard, with assistance from Patrick. Both of these gentlemen are extremely knowledgeable and skilled in home defense strategy and tactics. Beyond that, Bernard, in particular, has an instructional method that keeps one riveted to the lesson and inspired to master the skills. Everything was presented with great clarity and backed up by stories of personal experiences that illustrate the point. This is the third class of Bernard's that I have attended and they have all been excellent. The fact that I continue to attend his courses is the best recommendation I can give.

Bernard Martinage and his associate Patrick Meires did an absolutely outstanding job leading this eight+ hour training, the Home Defense Simulation workshop. It was highly educational, hands-on, interactive, challenging, fun and just right for anyone who wants to be prepared, ready and able to take appropriate action in the event you ever need to defend yourself or loved ones against intruders. We practiced numerous important techniques to use in the event of various home invasion scenarios and we learned many important tips that will surely be very useful if and when that time should really come. Use of the laser guns and interactive targets was awesome....as was practicing in the dark! Hat's off to Bernard and Patrick.
A Confidence Builder

Bernard, Can't say enough good things about my experience in your course taught at Bill's hanger. I came away with a great deal of knowledge but even more, with a good deal more confidence. Learning what we did has made me better prepared and able to approach a situation in a much safer way than I could have ever imagined. You presented your material in a very professional manner and made sure all was understood before we moved on to the next topic. Even as a beginner I never felt insecure or that I couldn't keep up. Thank you for a great day of learning with hands on experience and some good humor. I look forward to your showing my husband and me some shotgun options for our home.

Home defense training session was intense and very informative. Real life scenarios used enabled me to feel more confident in my ability to handle and use my firearm in defense within my own home setting. Instructor looked at each student, assessed their ability, corrected and encouraged as needed without student feeling they were measured against each other. Mr. Martinage has many years of experience in this field and it comes across in his methods of instruction.
