Instructor Dr. David Lungren
I am a California Department of Justice Certified Instructor, a Certified Utah Multi-State Concealed Weapons Instructor, a Certified NRA Instructor, and a Certified Range Safety Officer. I am also an approved CCW Instructor to train for the following Sheriff Departments; El Dorado County, Placer County, Sacramento County, San Joaquin County, and Sutter County. I also served 6 years in the military.
I have a passion to train and prepare as many people as possible to successfully defend themselves against violent attacks, both inside or outside their home. I have seen first-hand how violent attacks can devastate families. When I was 13 years old my father, a Sacramento Police Officer, was shot and critically wounded while freeing 3 hostages held in their home by a gunman.
A few years later my grandmother (in her 70s) fought off a violent intruder who had kicked open her back door in the middle of the night and attacked her with a knife. The attacker was driven off by gunfire from my grandfather who was confined to a wheelchair.
Your best chance to survive a violent attack is to be properly trained and prepared. In our trainings I will make complicated things simple so that they are easy to understand and remember. Before retiring as a chiropractor I was the clinic director of a Whiplash and Spinal Trauma Center. I’ve had years of experience teaching thousands of patients how to understand complex orthopedic and radiological findings so they could better manage their injuries. I apply this same level of expertise and training to every class and to every student.
