SHIELD | Firearms and Edge Weapons Training

The World We Live In

If you’re reading this right now, you not only realize that harsh realities exist in our day-to-day world, you’ve also decided to do everything you can to better prepare yourself for them. Excellent choice! It’s a decision that may just save your life someday.

This alone is a huge step in the right direction — you have distinguished yourself from the masses that either choose to ignore reality and remain oblivious to the violence happening in today’s world, or simply give up and go through life feeling mentally and physically powerless to do anything about it. You are not that person.

First Step

We applaud your courage and determination to take responsibility for yourself and your loved ones. Now, let’s get to work!

Boost Real Self-Defense Capabilities

Training with us at SHIELD is training for real-life events involving a firearm or knife, with all the randomness that occurs in these situations, and the immediate action required to defend yourself against them. We specialize in teaching proven combat science, instilling the critical skills necessary to increase situational awareness and prioritize personal safety.

Accelerated Learning

At Frederick Tactical, we are honored to take the benefit of our knowledge, experience, and skill in all aspects of self-defense against handheld weapons, and develop these defensive tactics in our students to the fullest extent possible.

When a knife or gun suddenly appears, you’re going to have a primal response to it one way or another — training with us means internalizing the most advantageous, tactical primal response possible given the situation.

Reality-Based Self-Defense

With the SHIELD system, our philosophy couldn’t be more clearly stated: Real-World Training for Real-World Violence. By training for the exact scenarios you want to protect yourself and your loved ones from, you’re naturally internalizing and adopting the most effective self-defense posture available for today’s world.


Remember: Self-Defense is Not a Sport
