What They Say

I have been under the instructions of Mr. Vernon for the training of pistols, shotgun, and rifle. He has worked with me on each weapon, and has helped me to qualify.  What I

really like about Mr. Gimbu is his 30+ years of Experience, which also includes hand to

hand combat, and how to use a knife. He also works with young people as well as seniors. Mr. Vernon’s experience is what makes him my choice to use as an instructor.

Calvin Muhammad

The high quality of training received, and Gerald's recommendations for continued

individualized areas of practice provide a clear pathway to gaining the necessary

knowledge and skills to protect myself if the use of a firearm is needed. I have experienced increased understanding regarding both legal and (needed) thoughtful, rational thinking about firearm(s) care and usage is especially significant. Gerald's overall guidance and instruction, and the questions answered have provided a sense of relief and diminished fears about firearms in general as well as establishing self-assurance as I continue to practice and learn.

Deborah Grant

Conceal Carry Testimonial. Before taking Mr. Kali’s class, my experience handling a gun was over 30 years ago, I had got to the point that if there was a gun near me, I was very apprehensive just looking at. However, frightened I was of guns, living in Chicago forces you to realize that one day you may need one to defend yourself. Understanding this I decided to enroll in a Conceal Carry class. Within an hour of the class, I relaxed. Mr. Kali made me feel that I could pick up a gun, load it and shoot with confidence. His patience and years of professional knowledge teaching the conceal carry laws as well as gun training changed my attitude about guns. As a woman I feel confident in using all firearms thanks to Gimbu Kali, a Master Teacher!I recommended his class to friends and relatives, those that enrolled in his class were very satisfied.

Carol Walker

I must say that my training class was Second to None.

The material in my opinion was well thought out and presented to the class. Your explaination about and examples of legal situations was very clear with no

mistakes about how the legal system works when a citizen has a CCL and how we must conduct ourselves. My training on the range was excellent, with the drills and  training I appreciated very much because I was able to work on my shooting skills that you taught me in one of your other classes.

It has been my honor to send in a few words to express my appreciation for you and your training. classes.

CONTINUE TEACHING Bro. Gimbu, you're the BEST ! ! !
