    PUBLIC WORKSHOP:  Beginners Self-Defense (The Basics)

    • Open to ADTA members, friends, family, and the public.  
    • Please RSVP to let us know you will be there!
    • VENUE:  American Legion Hall Post 127, Woodinville, WA 98072 


    Event Description:

    There are many ways to defend yourself without using a gun, which we call Layers of Safety. By attending ADTA’s FREE “Beginners Self-Defense” workshops, you’ll start by learning to use your voice defensively. Or if someone grabs you, practice how to break away and escape. Let us help you learn how to defend yourself as non-violently as possible, with handguns being your last resort.

    Firearm Safety Protocol:

    ADTA Range Safety Officers (RSOs) will be present to check you in at the door.

    • If you are a concealed pistol license holder, you are of course welcome to do so responsibly at our events.
    • At most of our workshops we encourage our attendees to actively participate in exercises or scenarios.
    • For everyone's safety, we require that active workshop participants not be carrying a loaded firearm.
    • For everyone's safety, handling of firearms is not permitted during ADTA workshop events except by the supervised, specific direction of an ADTA official.
    • Our ADTA Range Safety Officers will be present to help all attendees unload and clear any firearms prior to participating.
    • If you are participating in the workshop, you may also secure and lock your own firearm in your vehicle prior to entering the workshop venue.
    This protocol must be followed for everyone's safety.

      Have a question about ADTA membership, events, or activities? Many ADTA members are available both before and after the presentation to help. Just look for our members wearing ADTA hats and shirts.

      LIVE-FIRE PRACTICE:  Basic Defensive Skills (Part 1)



      Event description:

      They say practice makes perfect, or at least it gets you going in the right direction. And practicing the basics is essential – stance, grip, trigger, and sight picture are the foundations for everything else. Retain your shooting skills by attending ADTA’s monthly live-fire events. Join us and receive practical firearms training that you cannot get on your own at the range.

      Event Highlights:

      • Safety Briefing
      • Warm-up exercises
      • Skill building – for example sight picture, trigger control, getting off the X, clearing malfunctions
      • Scenarios – for example shoot-no-shoot situations, shooting on the move and from cover, surprise confrontations

      Important information:

      • If you are comfortable with safely handling and shooting your semiautomatic handgun, we welcome you to participate in this live-fire event.
      • Preregistration and payment are required to participate. ADTA membership is required and may take up to seven (7) days to process a membership application, so plan ahead. Click here to start your application process. We cannot accept registrations or payment at the door for this event.
      • In addition to your eye and ear protection, all participants need to bring their own semiautomatic handgun, strong-side muzzle-down belt holster, at least two magazine belt pouches, at least two magazines, and 100 to 150 rounds of ammunition. Optional: a tactical flashlight.
      • Please arrive with your firearm unloaded and cased. Event staff will direct you where and when to uncase and transfer your UNLOADED firearm to your holster.
      • If you have a CPL and normally carry, you may arrive with your firearm loaded and holstered.
