Just finished attending Fighting Carbine 1 outside Tucson, AZ. Joel, Mike and the Warlizard Team continue to offer top notch tactical training. This is a great follow-up from the Carbine Fundamentals Clinic, everything we learned was reinforced and tested in this class. Tons of live fire drills and the scenario at the end was challenging and fun. Looking forward to the Fighting Carbine 2 in June.

Took the pistol fundamentals, awesome instructors! I thought I was a safe shooter till I took the coarse, They help me to see where I need improvement, improved my mindset and enhanced safety overall! Thanks to the volunteers myself and family are safer today! Hope to see the crew again for more training soon.

Carbine Fundamentals was a great class. They thoroughly explained all the basics and clearly walked us through proper carry techniques, shooting positions, zeroing, and how to break down the carbine for cleaning. The instructors and RSOs we're all helpful and knowledgeable.

I learned so much at the Carbine Fundamentals Clinic this weekend! Can't wait to sign up for more classes with Joel and Michael. These guys not only have a tremendous amount of knowledge about firearms and how to properly use them; they're also amazingly patient, and definitely know how to teach! They gave me new techniques to practice next time I'm at the range and also sent me away with dry-fire drills to practice at home. I loved how they were willing and able to adapt the course to my older rifle: all other students in the class had modern rifles with proper slings, but my setup was a bit dated. They offered me 1:1 instruction with alternative approaches whenever needed. The drive from Phoenix to just north of Tucson is worth it! Don't pass these guys up.

My whole family has taken several classes through WarLizard. They are the best. Very patient, helpful and educated. I learned so much after my very first class. Would recommend them to anyone!

The instructors and their volunteer range assistants provide high quality fundamental courses. I have completed the Carbine Fundamentals and Pistol fundamentals courses. The one on one coaching has really boosted my abilities and confidence in handling my weapons. Joel, Mike and Cameron have built a great team. I look forward to taking more classes with them in the future.

At this point I have taken 2 different classes from Warlizard. They do an excellent job. Father and Son, Joel and Michael, are a fun duo. All of their RSOs are fun and unique. No matter your skill level or age, you'll feel welcome here as everyone is very friendly and helpful and the instructors/RSOs have a wide variety between skill/age as well. Every time they teach a course, it will be slightly different. They like to play it as the class goes, so if one day a class is moving faster than another then you'll get to try a different technique or drill that wasn't planned. I appreciate this dynamic philosophy, it helps the class to keep up the pace, and breaks away from any kind of cookie cutter by the lesson plan feel. The courses are not expensive, they keep it very affordable so that everyone can feel welcome and get a high level of training. I wake up at 5am to drive an hour and a half just to get there, and by the end of the day I'm always happy I made the trip. The whole WLT crew really does care about each and every student's experience and wants to make sure you get something out of each class. All the RSOs are un-paid volunteers that come a long way just to help out, everyone here is in it for the love of teaching and growing the firearms community on every level.

I count be happier with my decision to train with the amazing people at WLT. Joel and his team have treated me and began my training like I am part of the their own family. The welcoming atmosphere of the staff and other peers are unrivaled. This is not training for show or internet videos, this is real world skills. If you are from Phoenix, make the drive, you will not be disappointed.
