About Us

Innovative Defensive Solutions (IDS), llc, is a Manassas Virginia, based organization offering firearm and personal awareness training. Our mission is to further the development and education of all prospective students with particular emphasis in the following areas:

Firearm Safety

Pistol Marksmanship

Self – Defense with a Firearm / Concealed Carry of a Firearm

Non-Lethal Methods of Self – Defense

Advanced Firearm Training

Instructor Development

Situational Awareness

Crime Prevention

Crisis Management

Law Enforcement Career Insight Courses

Criminal Interdisciplinary Studies ( see for more info on this course)

IDS was created in response to the continuing need in the Northern Virginia area for quality and excellence in personal preparation intended for unforeseen criminal confrontations. Several courses that are offered place particular emphasis on avoidance of these types of situations.

Even though there are numerous avenues for the local general public to pursue competing firearm / crime prevention educational alternatives, IDS has enjoyed rapid and consistent growth. Classes are limited in size to guarantee individual competency and proficiency. Our clientele continues to grow simply by the recommendations of former students.

IDS ensures that all existing / future staff members are experienced marksmen / instructors and insists that they maintain current certification with either the National Rifle Association (NRA), National Rifle Association Law Enforcement Division (LED) or the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice (DCJS). The staff has participated in competitive shooting matches conducted by the International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) / International Practical Shooting Competition (IPSC) and they have attended numerous continuing education courses to maintain and further their skills. The staff has a combined total of over 25 years of instructor / firearm experience.

We look forward to meeting you at one of our classes and thank you for choosing IDS as your number one provider for the vital skills necessary to confront today’s challenging environment.
