About

Stewart and Tactical Survival Training is hands-down the best self defense training I’ve ever had. Along with some fitness training, my wife and I received firearms instruction from Stewart that was second-to-none! What really impressed us was that his instruction was so STRONGLY based in REAL-WORLD scenarios. There was absolutely no fluff or showing off, and each piece of instruction had several layers of both mechanical and statistical reasons to back it up. He even sent us home with simple drills we do to improve performance and recall in high-stress situations. Stewart does not have the ego that you often run into with instructors in this field. He listens, assesses, and gives you his best instruction that is almost always supported by irrefutable evidence. We had no idea how little we knew before taking the classes. I would recommend Tactical Survival Training to ANYONE, young or old, in any line of work or location. The Tactical Survival website and newsletters offer TONS of real-world training that is keep VERY up-to-date with recent trends in crime, statistics, and science. I have no doubt that the training you receive with TST would save your life if the situation ever warrants it.

Honey has a truly impressive command of the physical, mental, and spiritual paths to self-development. As her student, I have learned more than I could have hoped to about not just the physical aspects of the martial arts, but also the historical and philosophical underpinnings of such practice. I feel very fortunate to have found such a knowledgeable teacher, and highly recommend her.
