Instructor information

Steven Martinez/Owner/Senior Instructor


Served as a Lieutenant for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Protective Force, DOE Headquarters Learning and Workforce Development Team, DOE Personnel Security Specialist/Program Analyst (Current), and The New Mexico Department of Homeland Security Critical Infrastructure Protection Bureau.  I have trained extensively and continue to train in the use and deployment of weapons and tactics.  Special Response Team (SRT) - I posses the skills and techniques required to effectively execute recapture/recovery and pursuit operations, and to support interruption, interdiction, neutralization, containment, and denial strategies. I have developed close quarters marksmanship skills with the handgun and rifle; close quarters battle techniques; mounted, dismounted, and urban movement techniques; a variety of assault options deployments; and mechanical and ballistic breaching techniques.  I am proficient in the use and manipulation of firearms, and the demonstrated requirement of firearms safety. Instruction through experience, It takes a well qualified instructor with the knowledge, and ability to give the student the well deserved advantage to become better than the instructor.  I am a conduit of information, once the student has the basics for the foundation to become a safe gun owner, excellency then follows with practice and time.  I teach at the lowest level possible for the beginner to learn, and adapt to the advanced shooter's questions and needs when required.  I will always make my student's needs the first priority, and will always treat you with respect and kindness through my instruction.
