Active Shooter Instructors

Mike Patrick has been involved with personal defense training for over 35 years.  He began training in Martial Arts and has risen to the level of Professor / Grandmaster and has been inducted in the World Martial Arts Hall of Fame.

His firearms training led to him founding Dragon Tactical International, a division of Dragon Society International (DSI).  DSI has instructors all over the globe.  Although Mr. Patrick calls Greeneville, Tennessee home, he travels and teaches extensively around the country and internationally.  He is well known as an expert in combative skills and his ability to teach.

Mr. Patrick is also recognized as an Active Shooter instructor and regularly teaches both armed and unarmed response for civilians and Law Enforcement.  He routinely works with church security teams and corporations to ensure they are prepared to respond to critical events.

In recent years, he has added basic trauma training via Stop the Bleed and other tactical medicine courses, which he now instructs.

Not only are his classes informative but also fun.

Mr. Patrick is married with 4 children and 1 grandchild.
