“Your unique personality, charisma, and energy level has brought a level of training to our personnel that they’ve not often experienced. The mental preparation that you and Shockwave Defense have incorporated into training is invaluable. The understanding that losing is not an option is a concept that hopefully all officers will embrace and strive towards. We certainly appreciate your dedication to our department and look forward to working with you in the future.”

“Michael Johnson and Shockwave Defense are the leaders of modern combat training. Encompassing all aspects of today’s modern warrior with tomorrows technology and training. Drawing on over 30 years of experience Michael’s teaching techniques and grasp of the warrior mindset put this program years ahead of anything I have experienced in my ten years in law enforcement, and six years as a basic/advanced instructor. If I had to go into battle tomorrow I hope that I trained at Shockwave today. If you are serious about training Shockwave defense is the program for you.”

“The Silver City Police Department along with the Grant County Sheriff’s Office deeply appreciates the advanced training you provided. The training was exemplary in both content and presentation. All the officers that attended the training enjoyed it and thought the content was very appropriate and that it fills a gap in current training curriculums.”

“The classes provided by Shockwave defense assist officers in understanding the dynamics of physical conflict and enhance their ability to survive a violent confrontation. Every class I have taken with this group has been well planned, expertly taught, and brings a level of enthusiasm which is infectious. Each class is taught in a friendly respectful environment where the idea of merely surviving is replaced by the mindset of winning the confrontation in of the most importance. These classes install a warrior mindset which is critical in the event of a violent confrontation. I consider it an honor to have been able to train with this school and Michael Johnson. If you ever have an opportunity to train with them I wholeheartedly endorse their program and who knows, it may save your life!”

“It took approximately four months for me to accept that Master Johnson not only had a lot to teach, but that he truly deserved the title of Master. My training, to date, has been worth the price of admission….Unlike other defensive tactics instructors, Master Johnson has had no problems adapting his training to accommodate my unique defense needs…I recommend Master Johnson without reservation to anyone contemplating studying with him. He is a true professional who constantly works to extend his knowledge of the defensive arts. I do not give endorsement lightly, but Master Johnson has earned my respect, and I truly believe in the effectiveness of his training.”

Mike Johnson and his crew..... what a talented group of individuals. Above and beyond my expectations. Setting the bar for self defense. These are the best of the best. Don’t waste your time or money with anyone else. The attention to details and your own personal safety is hand down the highest priority of the people at Shockwave.

For all the things Shockwave offers, I think the mindset they teach is its best attribute. You can have all the training and tools to defend yourself in the world, but without the proper mindset it’s useless.

I highly recommend Shockwave Defense. Such a great environment to be in. Master Johnson and Mr. King are the two of the most humble people I’ve met and really care about your goals. They watch out for their students and help build a stronger (mentally and physically) and more confident you.

I wanted to edit it my post a little bit. when I say that I've done a lot of shooting courses I have done a lot. I've done two weeks courses at front sight in pahrump Nevada several times. I've even helped instruct at sure fire academy in Las Vegas Nevada. I've also been a range safety officer for some of the biggest outdoor gun ranges in Las Vegas Nevada.so when say I have done a lot of shooting courses in my lifetime I mean it. From basic pistol to in home out of and home in a vehicle. I've done my CCW in five other states. I will say this is by far one of the best classes I've ever been in!! can't wait to learn more from Master Johnson!! I RECOMMEND SHOCKWAVE TO EVERYONE!!!

I am the father of 3 girls and I have personally taken some Shockwave Defense courses for myself and my wife. We learned about some of the other classes that were available and we decided to send our daughters ages 12,14, and 16 to a course called "Divas & Daggers". This course was specifically designed for woman only. My daughters came home with some great take aways from the class and shared some of the techniques they learned in the class. My 12 year old daughter at 95 lbs took down her daddy at 205 lbs with ease by using one of the techniques she learned in this one class. I am so impressed. If she can learn and execute this technique after just one class I am hoping that with practice and more training she will be able to protect herself in a real life situation or even be able to back mom and dad up so we can protect our family together if faced by attackers. Shockwave Defense is helping my family bond and function as a unit, not only are we having fun but we are learning to keep ourselves safe and protect each other. I could not recommend these classes more.

This training is excellent!" I've been going to Shockwave Defense for two years now. I took some firearms training and found out that I need to be well rounded in all aspects of defense. Shockwave Defense provides training that is relevant to our daily lives. It's more than just tactics, it's a lifestyle.
