What a Great class Tre’s excellent at working with the kids!! He taught them the importance of only fighting when necessary and worked with each child individually so they had a good understanding of what they learned. Highly recommended

My Tactical Advantage is a great place to learn self defense. I wish I knew about them when my children were younger because we would have all been enrolled. After someone broke into our Motorhome, we enrolled so that we can be ready for the next intruder!

First and only school of self-defense I will ever attend. Master Elmore is the best trainer/teacher you could ever have. Works well with adults and children, you can't go wrong with MY TACTICAL ADVANTAGE.

Been coming to MTA for a few months now. So happy I found them! Trey and Mo and anyone that comes in there are great. I’ve reached some of my weight loss goals and have been practicing close combat skills. They are excellent trainers and are patient with me when I’m “thinking about it too much” lol. Will keep coming back!

Very down-to-earth, safe environment. I am very pleased with the instructors, the level of professionalism, and the team's compassion and encouragement. The team there pushes you to go beyond your level of comfort. Whether you're there to work out or learn self-defense, either way, you'll walk out feeling like a new person. I know I do every single time.

My older brother recommended this for my son because he trained under My Tactical Advantage. It was the best recommendation ever. My son has grown and learned so much. His behavior has gotten so much better, he's more focused and confident. Trey has really been awesome with my son. I'm so thankful!

I been going here for a month now and I love it. Every time I go, I learn something new. I like that we're not sticking to a routine, it switches up, and that keeps me from being bored. Some of the skills can be challenging, but that's the fun part. Tray is a great teacher and his family participates and makes you feel comfortable. Thank you all!!!!

I had the pleasure of going to My Tactical Advantage yesterday with my organization and I learned SO MUCH. I was highly impressed by the owner/ instructor's credentials and knew I would learn some real tactics. I've taken a self-defense class before and this class was by far more informational and I'm confident in the skills I learned.
