Our primary mission is to provide meaningful training in the knowledge and skills necessary for our clients to protect themselves, their families and their community in any contingency they may face.
Our secondary mission is to train others to effectively train their own students in their Neighborhood Protection Associations, and by doing so, help those folks learn preparedness, home and personal security, and self-defense. Simply put, we train ‘Force Multipliers’, if you will. No matter the method, whether it’s in-person hands-on instruction or through the use and application of our on-line classes and training references, our mission to help others is satisfied by the increased expertise of our clients. We believe we have the same objective as our clients: Safeguarding our lives, our liberty, and our property for ourselves and our posterity.
Our staff is comprised of dedicated people experienced in disaster preparedness and mitigation, survival, effective training methodology (the art and science of teaching), combatatives, marksmanship, local area defense and security, and small group tactics. Our Chief Instructor gained his expertise during a career in the USAF; his achievements relevant to DTG include a five year assignment as an Air Base Ground Defense instructor at the USAF Security Police (now Security Forces) Academy, attaining the coveted “Master Instructor” rating while there, and later selection for another five year teaching assignment at a major command NCO Academy, with both schools having accreditation through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the University of Maryland. He also taught SUT, marksmanship, and command center operations at various units.
Our associate instructors receive regular training and evaluation in Adult Education theory and practice as well as on-going training in all subject areas taught at DTG.
We are a ‘user friendly’ company, too! We treat our clients the way we want to be treated–courteously and professionally. We are open to feedback and are always happy to discuss ideas or concerns as appropriate.
Thank you for stopping by!
