All you have to do is read the news to know we cannot count on others or law enforcement for our protection. Violence is increasing, cities are defunding the police and our society seems to be fracturing socially and culturally.


Now is the time to increase your knowledge and skills to protect yourself and your loved ones.


TSG is a group exploring the complex areas of modern tactics, techniques, and training to foster the development of personal protection, self-defense, CCW, and first responder skills for individuals.


Whether you are new to this area or a serious student looking to stay on top of ways to increase your skills, we are going to cover these areas with a bent towards the responsible armed citizen and the security provider. 

Guiding Principles 

  1. We are our own first responders.

  2. We value life and are responsible for our own -- and our family’s -- safety.

  3. We are students first -- and students always.  

  4. We seek the truth, challenge our current paradigms, respect and consider alternate viewpoints.


Our focus is on education and training for the individual. Whether a concealed carrier, responsible citizen, first responder, or security provider, we want to explore both tried-and-true methods as well as leading-edge information from a variety of sources.  We will routinely challenge our previous training, the accepted doctrine, and popular methods. 

About the Content

The work here is going to be heavily influenced by our background and work in executive protection, defensive tactics, self-defense, and martial arts training.

You'll find a wide variety of topics as the study of personal protection encompasses a broad spectrum of both hard and soft skills. We'll also share reviews of gear, equipment, resources, and classes.
