“It is better to be a warrior in a garden, than a gardener in a war”

REALITY DEFENSE LAW ENFORCEMENT TRAINING  

At RDI our training philosophy is simple: Train the mind as hard as you train the body. Our students are those silent warriors who choose to do their duty knowing the reward comes in the honor of protecting those they serve. They train hoping brutal times don’t come, but if they do, they are ready to conduct the necessary violence to stop them. Our goal is met by recruiting those instructors who believe in our mission and can bring the necessary and practical knowledge to our clients.
