Fighting Ideas Realistic for Everyone or F.I.R.E. Defensive Skills LLC, was created in 2001 for the purpose of teaching self defense. We started teaching Tae Kwon Do, and our Women's Self Defense classes based on the ever growing need for personal protection. However, after the tragedy of 9/11, we knew that we would have to offer more classes geared towards firearms, and other realistic forms of self defense.
All instructors at FDS are committed to learning, and passing on the latest in defensive tactics, and firearms usage. All of our classes are taught in a relaxed, yet driven atmosphere. Our instructors have years of military and law enforcement experience to draw from.
Our goal has always been to show people how to defend themselves in any situation. When you train with us, we treat you how we want to be treated, so we know you will want to train with us again. You win, and so do we!
F.I.R.E. Defensive Skills is always looking for ways to improve what we do. We have created this website with you in mind.

Train hard, but ALWAYS train smart.
NEW CLASS POSTING! Intro to AR15 - May 9th, 2015.
THANK YOU all former TKD, MMA, and MSD students!! It was my (Gary) absolute pleasure to be your TKD, MMA, and finally MSD instructor for the past 16 years. Even though FIRE will no longer offer a weekly self defense class, doesn't mean you shouldn't keep training, learning, growing, and preparing yourself for "that day". We all know it will come, so until we meet again, keep training hard, and stay safe!!
