My name is Kelly H Bivins, and I started 1st Defense Training in January 2018. I was a Victim in 2009, and realized I didn’t know how to protect myself. That’s when I made the decision that I didn’t want to be a Victim anymore, and received training, and I continue to train. My passion is to train others to feel confident, educated, & prepared to protect themselves, their loved ones, and others. 

The 1st Defense Training Family  is dedicated to providing outstanding training in the following:  

  • Personal Safety 
  • Firearms Safety
  • Fundamentals of Shooting
  • Permit to carry
  • Advanced Defensive carry instruction
  • Other Defensive Courses Available (Refuse to be a Victim & Active Shooter) 
  • Youth Safety Courses 
  • Women only Courses
  • Corporate Training Available  

Our courses are customized to reflect and support the unique laws of the states in which we operate.  Along with safety and legal training, 1st Defense Training teaches practical application of course materials.
