For several years I have served as a Firearms Instructor and conduct firearms training classes. In addition, I am a member of the Krav Maga Meetup Group and have studied many forms of martial arts. I am a certified NRA Firearms Instructor & Training Counselor with extensive experience in firearms instruction and shooting developed from my career with the U.S. Government.


Hi, I am Tina Wilson-Cohen. I am a strong advocate in providing women the tools in arming themselves against violence, becoming confident, and acting as mentors to younger women. I wanted to start a group for women that hopefully achieves that!

What Tina W. is saying about this Meetup Group

This was a great chance to bond with new members. Also a wonderful opportunity to shoot in tactical ways in which we might encounter in a bad situation!
