Practical Defense Academy was formed in 2008 with the sole purpose of teaching responsible, law abiding citizens safe, practical defensive techniques. Our classes span from basics such as the Kentucky CCDW course and NRA Pistol course to more specialized training involving the use of firearms, edged weapons, and empty hand combatives.  We offer courses for every skill level, beginner to advanced, and look forward to training with you.  Click on the Courses tab above to learn what we have to offer. 

We have traveled and taught courses all over the state to citizens, law enforcement, and military.  Regardless of your age, gender, or race we train with integrity in order to help you prevail in a self-defense confrontation.
