The Association of Defensive Shooting Instructors was founded by leaders in the Training Community to provide a resource for anyone who teaches (or aspires to teach) the defensive use of firearms. Associate Membership is open to anyone who believes in the Seven Tenets of Professionalism that we have outlined and desires to increase their understanding of how to teach others to defend themselves with firearms.

ADSI is an educational association and, as such, does not restrict membership based on prior accomplishments or current ability. We had created this resource to allow those who have made a career of teaching others to pass their knowledge and experiences on to others, for peers to interact and discuss and for everyone to increase their ability to professionally communicate what is, literally, life & death information.

Make sure you check out the full membership benefits.
