About Us

About Us:

 

Hello, and thank you for your interest in Guardian Personal Defense Training. Our name alone gives you a pretty good idea of our mission, which is probably why you are checking us out! We are always happy to meet like-minded people, and would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about us and what we do.

Guardian Personal Defense Training is a veteran owned company, and was founded in April of 2013 by our lead instructor Kevin Arias. Kevin launched Guardian Personal Defense Training in an effort to educate and train those who believe in taking responsibility for their own safety. Guardian prides itself on offering a comprehensive, multi-platform course catalog which is delivered with unparalleled professionalism, supported by real world experience. Whether you are looking for unarmed self-defense training, firearms training, less than lethal defense options or crime prevention programs, chances are Guardian Personal Defense Training has a class for you. In addition to student level courses, Guardian Personal Defense Training also offers Instructor level firearms training.

 We feel it is important to point out that the phrases “Firearms Training”, and “Concealed Carry” are not included in our company name. This omission was deliberate. You see, at Guardian Personal Defense Training, we are true personal defense professionals who offer much more than just concealed carry courses. After all, how can any true personal defense professional offer only one class using only a single defensive tool?  In addition to the previously mentioned course offerings, Guardian Personal Defense Training also offers basic rifle and shotgun classes as well as a 4-part defensive pistol series.

 Guardian Personal Defense Training is currently headquartered in Oswego Illinois. However, Guardian is dedicated to serving as many communities as possible and will often take our “show on the road”. Please contact us if you would like us to conduct a class at your location!

 We would like to thank you once again for your interest in Guardian Personal Defense Training. If you have any questions about any of our programs, please let us know. We would love to hear from you!

 

Thank you, and have a safe day!

 

Kevin
