Innovative Defensive Solutions (IDS), llc, is a Manassas, Virginia, based organization offering Defensive Firearm Training and Personal Defense Training covering many aspects to help keep people safe in today’s environments. Our mission is to further the development and education with a context driven model to make our clients safer. We also offer training in the following areas.

Firearm Safety

Pistol Marksmanship

Self – Defense with a Firearm / Concealed Carry of a Firearm

Non-Lethal Methods of Self – Defense

Advanced Firearm Training

Instructor Development

Situational Awareness

Crime Prevention



IDS was created in response to the continuing need in the Northern Virginia area for quality and excellence in personal preparation intended for unforeseen criminal confrontations.  Several courses that are offered place particular emphasis on avoidance of these types of situations.

Even though there are numerous avenues for the local general public to pursue competing firearm / crime prevention educational alternatives, IDS has enjoyed rapid and consistent growth.  Classes are limited in size to guarantee individual competency and proficiency.  Our clientele continues to grow simply by the recommendations of former students.

IDS ensures that all existing / future staff members are experienced instructors and insists they continue to develop their instructor craft through re-certification training annually. They also must continue to teach to stay current. They must have a commitment to evolve as students, practitioners and teachers.

We look forward to meeting you at one of our classes and thank you for choosing IDS as your number one provider for the vital skills necessary to confront today’s challenging environment.
