Great great great location for trained and untrained individuals. Great ways to work out while working on mental stress. Frank is amazing in listening when it comes to what YOU as an individual want to work on. Whether it's self defense, tactical training, or even cardio conditioning he will TEST YOU and you will be a much better improved person mentally and physically. Always recommended! Haven't stopped going since I began! Keep it up FRANK and thank you!

I’ve trained extensively in martial arts and firearms for a while, and this facility is by far one of best I’ve ever been to. I got some awesome new techniques that took my skillset to the next level. It was clean, but it still had that gritty feeling of a place where you were about to get that work in. If you looking to take your training to the next level, whether beginner or advanced, I highly recommend!

I have been training with Franck for more than 6 months and he is by far, the most patient instructor out there. He is very knowledgeable about the subject matter and the passion he has for what he does is like no other. I’m a LEO and if one day his techniques can save me from harm, then all the blood, sweat and tears would have been worth it. I am forever thankful and recommend Frank at Florida Defensive Training for anyone who what’s to learn or even perfect their skills in close combat and/ or tactical handgun.
