 Louis Salgado had been my Krav Maga instructor for five years. He has played a pivotal roll in keeping me humble at the same time teaching me to fight with better precision and focus. My entire mentality has shifted for the better, as I know now that I have become more calm under pressure. No kickboxing or pad kicking only, martial arts can teach you how to prepare for violence. That only comes by being tested and overcoming challenging but still enjoyable classes. How this translates into his Skill Building CCW classes is that he teaches you what you need to know, skills that translate into reality. My first class with him had me doing drills I had never done, and by the end I was only disappointed because class was over. I decided to train with Salgado Defense Specialties because Louis is the type of instructor that will have you learning something that you previously thought was past your skill level but will never leave those that are not getting it behind. You should choose where you spend your time and money training wisely, with Salgado Defense Specialties, you will stay highly motivated and become highly skilled. Don't overspend with hyped up names, or those that have never experienced the violence they teach on defending, train right here, with one of best. Someone that has seen violence and will mold you into the person who will overcome it too, if ever necessary.

 Louis is an awesome Krav Maga teacher and NRA certified instructor. I have learned a great deal of shooting skills through the firearms training courses that Louis offers. To date, I have taken the basic pistol course, inside the home defense course, outside the Home Defense course and a reloading class with Salgado Defense Specialties (SDS). His ability to mix real-world situations with intense shooting drills and Marksmanship skills made those classes very enjoyable and enlightening to me. I would encourage anyone who was interested in being more confident and much more aware about Firearms handling to sign up for these classes. I'm really glad I did.....

 Salgado Defense Specialties is a renown self-defense instructional business. I have known the owner, Mr. Louis Salgado, for 7-years and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to take the NRA Basic Pistol and Basic Inside the Home Defense courses led by Louis himself. Louis has all the qualities of an excellent instructor. He is knowledgeable, thorough, and patient, just to list a few. I highly recommend Salgado Defense Specialties. The offered courses are organized and promote a safety first environment. I am looking forward to continuing my self-defense skills with instruction under Salgado Defense Specialties.

I have trained Krav Maga with Louis for over 6 years and have found him to be a thorough and extremely competent teacher. He takes care in not only techniques and defense skills but also how they relate to real world and current events. The Salgado Firearm defense classes round out a firm foundation for personal and home defense. I highly recommend all these courses.

 Louis is a great all around instructor. As a krav instructor he will go over techniques as many times as necessary to make sure everyone understands what to do. He watches over all the students to make sure everyone feels safe and comfortable while learning. Part of krav is learning gun defense, Louis takes it a step further and teaches firearm defense classes as well. So if you ever unarm someone with a weapon, you will feel safe and confident handling a gun. His classes are a great way to learn all kinds of self-defense while having fun. He makes sure everyone leaves class learning something new and feeling safer than when they came in. His classes have made me much more confident that I can handle myself in almost any situation.

 Louis is an excellent Krav Maga and fire arms trainer. He is a black belt in Krav Maga and a certified NRA instructor.

I have been training with him for over 2 years in Krav and he gives you that personal attention and takes the time to make sure I understand the self-defense techniques and feel confident in doing them, before moving on to the next techniques.

Louis has really helped me grow much more confident in working with fire-arms. I have taken a couple of his NRA classes so far and have learned much more than I ever though I would when it comes to shooting and having the confidence to protect my family if ever needed. 

If you are looking for quality self-defense training in either Krav Maga or fire-arms training, I highly recommend Louis.

  I have known Louis for about two years now. I first met him as my Krav Maga instructor. Recently, I have taken NRA classes from him such as Basic Pistol Shooting and Personal Protection in the Home Course. He is very knowledgeable and takes the time to make sure I have mastered the concepts he is teaching. He cares about his students which he demonstrates by taking the extra effort and time it takes for the students to learn. When I take a class from him, he gives me the attitude and determination that I can do this even if it is challenging. I have thoroughly enjoyed taking classes from Louis.
