I attended the 2/4/17 course instructed by Ron. I found him to be professional and well informed about all of the aspects of concealed carry and home defense. Being a former Marine and expert marksman I felt I had a good understanding of handling and shooting my weapon. He was able to knock the rust off of my USMC training and put me at ease on the range. I haven't handled a weapon in about 20 years. Being former military I though I would know how to handle a conflict if it should arise but he opened my eyes to the real world we live in. I am glad I had the training since I have decided to carry. The home defense part has me looking about my home for weak areas and devising a plan to strengthen them. He has a class for women and my wife would like to attend. I will be taking the advanced class as well as hitting the range ALOT more.
P.S. During the range portion I noticed that he did not miss a single bullseye even when he used someone else's weapon.
Great course Ron.
"I had the pleasure of training under Ron in the NRA Law Enforcement Instructor qualification course, and again as an adjunct instructor for him several months later in Miami. He teaches with a very humble style that will immediately put you in the comfort zone, which is imperative if you are going to retain any information. Ron comes from a well rounded, extensive background through which he has acquired a ton of experience. As a former Navy SEAL and having been through quite a few courses I can say the product that Ron puts out combined with his at ease style of instruction is most certainly a cut above the rest. Beginner or advanced, everyone will walk away with a valuable experience. I look forward to training with Ron many more times in the years to come."
These days it seems everywhere you look someone is "training" people in the art of self defense. It goes so much further than pointing a gun and pulling the trigger. I had the honor of meeting Ron Flowers while downrange in Afghanistan.
I also had the privilege of going outside the wire on missions and I saw first hand the level of professionalism and experience Ron has teaching our troops. If you are looking for a subject matter expert, look for one who has walked the walk, because anyone can talk the talk. Ron Flowers not only has walked the walk he can articulate it, demonstrate it, and give you practical application so that if YOU ever have to walk the walk, you'll have all the tools needed to be a survivor. 5 STAR instructor without a doubt.

I've had the pleasure of getting to know Ron Flowers through our business dealings over the past couple years. He's an effective communicator who is appropriately focused on student needs. Ron is also a knowledgeable, competent, multi-disciplined shooter. The array of instructional services he offers will meet most any individual or group needs. Citizens Defense Training is a great building block for those seeking fundamentally sound instruction, without the theatrical hype so common with today's shooting schools. -Steve Adelmann, Owner, Citizen Arms

More than just an outstanding instructor, Ron is the embodiment a person that has dedicated his life to the protection of others. Honest, friendly and humble, I can recommend his training without hesitation.
I have worked with Ronald Flowers as an NRA Law Enforcement Firearm Instructor. Ron has a unique teaching style that is practical and informative. Ron's dedication to fitness makes his firearm manipulation demonstrations, smooth and flawless, he truly makes shooting look easy. His classroom teaching style is a fluid blend of academic and philosophical learnings, which he maintains through constant research and development of his personal pool of knowledge. I look forward to teaching with Ron, because as instructors we will always remain a student, and I learn from him during every class. I wish him success in his new business!
