WHAT PEOPLE SAY

JDC is a fantastic group of instructors with decades of experience in each instructor.  I took the Red Dot Essentials course since I'm new to the pistol red dot. The instructors are able to gauge everyone's skill level, from beginner to experienced, and find what that person needs to go to the next level. I look forward to more training with Justified Defensive Concepts in the future.
