STR Instructors

The instructors at STR have a unique balance of Military and Law Enforcement backgrounds combined with training experience. When this talented team of instructors is not leading trainings they are working in the field practicing what it is that they preach. No political lectures, long war stories or cult-like dogma. At STR the focus is training hard and smart.
