Brimstone Firearm Instruction gets its name from the Founder’s best friend and dog, BRIMSTONE, who was smart enough to evaluate threats and respond without escalating the situation while ensuring his pack (family) was protected at all times. We focus on the FIREARM to simplify the classes but recognize that self-defense classes, martial arts, non-lethal and other training are also effective for security and self-defense. We focus on the term INSTRUCTION as opposed to training because we look training is more of a way of life, not just a class. We seek to enable each student to advance their skills after leaving our classes. We provide instruction so that you can train to fit your lifestyle.

Here at Brimstone Firearms, we are Christians who teach the emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of defensive encounters, no matter what religion or philosophy you may choose to follow or not follow. We recognize that humankind is a spiritual being and that all people deserve the right of self-defense and the defense of their community.

We believe your life is worth more than the bare minimum standards as required by the State of Michigan. This is why we have “The Brimstone Promise”:
Each student will leave our class a better shot. In order to fulfill this promise, every student will receive:

  • One-on-One coaching.
  • Small class sizes for an easier learning environment.
  • A fun and safe environment that is stress free.
  • Training based on the student’s skill level. You can be a beginner or a retired Special Operations Officer, we promise that you will be better no where you are coming from.
  • The latest in training and skill development that will be based on who the student is and what they need, not what we prefer to teach.
