Testimonials from our most recent instructor courses

"Best course I have attended since I can remember."

"I feel like this course gave me the skills to be confident in not just making contact, but confident in controlling a subject. The teaching model is also very simple to remember. Great job guys!"

-James Comings, Minnetonka Police Department SWAT

"This is the best course I’ve attended. Excellent pace and detail. Taught techniques and how to teach those techniques."

-David Fry, Apple Valley Police Department

“Extremely easy to learn, applicable to all LEO’s no matter their size/strength."

”After attending, I would require it for all new instructors.”

-Phil Quesenberry, Eden Prairie Police Department, Minnesota

“I have been training defense tactics for 7 years. I have learned from instructors across the globe as well. Hands down, these are the best instructors I have had the privilege to learn from. All knowledgeable, competent, and without the egos.

-Kipp Hartman, Lieutenant, Madison Police Department, Wisconsin

“The instructors are top notch. They are clearly experts in the field and are passionate about the subject matter. Every day was a blast and informative. I truly believe these techniques and skills will help to keep our officers stay safe.”

-Alex Haas, Cedar Rapids Police Department, Iowa

 “The STORM Instructors are second to none.”

-Bill Hanson, Oakdale Police Department, Minnesota

"Tom & Chad were by far the best instructors I’ve had of any of the trainings I’ve attended. They do a great job of presenting new and unfamiliar material in a practical & easy to learn way.

What I liked most was that they keep the environment light-hearted and even comical so that the techniques are simple and easy to learn. You can really tell that they not only know what they are doing (and are experts in their field) but they also love what they are doing. It really shows in their teaching style." 

-Nick Larson, Plymouth Police Department
