About Defensive Bravo

Founder and Chief Instructor of Defensive Bravo, Jason Gouffray, started his firearms journey as a young boy.  Firearms introduction came courtesy of his veteran of Vietnam grandfather.  However, it wasnt until some years later, after being gifted his first AR from his father in law that he began the lifelong road of firearms training and eventually, instruction.  Eager to learn how to operate effectively with his new weapon and other platforms, he enrolled in a private firearms training academy during the tumultuous year of 2020.  There, he learned how to operate "like the pros" as the basis of that training was the foundations of United States Marine Corps Special Operations methodologies.  MARSOC (AKA "The Raiders") training was not only in various platforms, but also the mindset to "survive the chaos" of a firefight; how to operate under stress effectively.  This experience was life changing to say the least.  In 2021, Jason received the National Rifle Association's Pistol Instructor Certification and formed his company, Defensive Bravo.  Through the curation of techniques, skills, and tactics from professional operators, law enforcement officers, military special operations, and other government agencies from around the world, you can train like a pro with Defensive Bravo.
