Defensive Mindset Training teaches with the motto: "No Ego." What this means to us is that we are always looking for the most efficient and effective training methods and defensive skills possible. We teach in a calm, careful, and professional matter. Unless it's a full scenario, you'll never hear us yelling or intimidating anyone in a session.

Defensive Mindset Training bases all of their training on the extreme mastery of the fundamentals, and human neural pathway development. Only with perfect practice will permanent perfection be achieved. Only with hard work and dedication will we be able to protect ourselves and our loved ones. What we ask you to do, we do it to ourselves.


Defensive Mindset Training was previously known as Sealed Mindset and was founded by US Navy SEAL Larry Yatch. Lt Cmdr. Yatch, as leader of SEAL Team 3, served multiple combat tours of the middle east and the Philippines, but it was his deep cover operations in places like Lebanon, as well as a deep study of human neuroscience and adult learning that helped to reshape DMT's view of how concealed carry training was conducted in the United States. DMT's methodology is unique among firearms training schools, giving students the opportunity for true mastery of their craft.
