New dates are up for May and June private classes. 6/12 FSSD is almost sold out. 6/18 Hand to Hand study group will need to be rescheduled as the instructor needs to travel out of country. 5/23 Precision Rifle Study Group is up and will be the last such event for the 2021 season.
Shotgun classes are up for May and July.
We have officially transitioned to One Cent Sign-up classes. To sign up, most classes will only cost $.01, and you can donate whatever you feel is right for you. Click on any class below to learn more. Let me know if you find any typos.
A lot of folks over the years have asked me to provide an easy to follow flow chart of what classes we offer and what we recommend for different levels of students. Here you go:
New classes posted every week. Help me build the schedule by requesting topics you’d like to see.
First time students, please look at Firearm Safety and Self Defense. This beginner friendly class is the culmination of many many years of experience teaching mindset, responsibility, safety, legality, and firearm usage perfectly tailored to give you what you need to get started.
To register for a class, pay online by clicking the links below, or call/email with questions.
If you are interested in scheduling a private class in English or in Mandarin, you can browse and pay for available private class dates here: https://monarchdefense.org/product/private-class/. If you do not see a date which works for you, please email or call to propose a date.
If you have been to at least one Monarch Defense class, please join us on the private Facebook page “Monarch Defense Warrior Scholars”, where you can continue your education and discussion. Answer the survey questions along with your request, or your request will be denied.
We will not provide any refunds or sympathy for folks who do not read the course descriptions. Read carefully, and ask to clarify if you are uncertain.
All classes are rain or shine. Classes held at our Bay Area location unless otherwise mentioned.
If you cannot attend a class you signed up for, please inform us by email, so that we do not hold up the class waiting for you. This is a simple matter of common decency, which I’m disappointed that some students are lacking.
