About Austin Firearm Defense Tactics
I have been employed in the Department of Corrections since 1993, after working as a corrections officer for 4 years, I was asked to become a Self Defense Instructor of our facility to teach basic self-defense techniques. I became a certified Self-Defense Instructor for the Kansas Department of Corrections in 1997. I then went on to become a certified self-defense instructor by the Federal Bureau of Prisons Training Academy November 5th 1998. The tactics taught are self-defense awareness and basic combat. I was then selected to be a Master Self Defense Instructor for the Kansas Department of Corrections. I am now part of a team that trains and certifies new Self Defense Instructors for the Kansas Department of Corrections.
In 1995 I became part of the Facility Special Response Team and the Crowd Control Team, eventually becoming part of the Hostage Extraction Team in 2000. I was promoted to commander of the Hostage Extraction Team, where I have served for 10yrs. During that time I attended a SWAT certification training through the Russell Sheriff Department. I have been a Certified Firearms Instructor for the State of Kansas Department of Corrections since 2006. In 2016 became a certified NRA Basic Handgun Instructor.
In 1994 I became a part of the Volunteer Fire Dept. in the small town I live in and also became a certified EMT and Fire Fighter I certified. In 2000 I was promoted to the Fire Chief and still currently hold the position.
