We are not like any other firearms academy in Houston. Unlike places such as 360 Tactical Training, we offer much more personalized and unique courses that are hosted by an instructor who has seen it all, as he is retired from the U.S. Special Forces. So, rest assured that you will not find training anywhere else as good as Defiance Tactical's.

In addition this, as mass shooting events have rapidly increased over the last few years, we also believe that every single person deserves to have the right to know how to protect themselves.  

Don't wait to learn how to protect yourself until it's too late. Sign-up for the most exclusive tactical shooting classes in Houston.
