FIREARMS TRAINING CLASSES IN SPARKS, NEVADA

Beyond CCW - A Real Pistol Self Defense Course

Our Firearms Training classes at Shin Gan Dojo is beyond any type of training you've ever experienced. Beyond CCW is not your normal CCW qualification class.

In fact, we don't qualify or renew Concealed Weapons permits at all. What we do is train you to use the firearm to survive deadly encounters. Like any other martial arts weapons, we use repeated exercises to program the fundamentals of fighting with the pistol.

Our dryfire and live fire exercises will take you beyond your CCW training! If you carry a gun or plan to, this training is a MUST!
