What we're about

Armed Defense Training Association (http://www.armeddefense.org/)

ADTA is a member-led, member-instructed non-profit association based in Federal Way, Washington. We promote the safe and ongoing development of personal defense skills by sponsoring regular events:

• Free monthly public seminars and events.

• Monthly live-fire practice events suitable for beginning and advanced shooters alike.

• Special live-fire events with unique scenarios and challenges to improve your shooting.

• We arrange exclusive use of local shooting ranges during ADTA live-fire events.

As a member of ADTA, you can learn and practice many types of defensive handgun techniques not normally available to public range users. You are always encouraged to learn at your own pace, practice the techniques you most want to refine, from basic gun handling on up, and observe the exercises you may want to try later. Learn to defend yourself with a helpful group of experienced neighbors from your own community. No competitions, no pressure but what you put on yourself, and ongoing opportunities to share your own growing skills with others. Welcome to the Armed Defense Training Association!
