What People Are Saying


7/28/2029 - This is the best training that I have Ever experiences! I have been to a Correctional Officer Academy and a University Police Academy and I must say Reality-Based Training is the best ever. You will definitely be trained by professionals. The director is professional, patient and very knowledgeable. I went here because I wanted to get my recertifications with my weapon, OCAT, baton and hancuffs and I got it all. Best decision I made in along time. I guarantee you will Not be disappointed. ~~ Dominique Sweatt

1/20/2019 - As an instructor I look for many different things when observing other instructors teach. I must say Reality-Based Training Group impressed me with their knowledge, skill set and real world training techniques. This is big for me, up until now I've been the only one that has trained my two kids in the area art of defense tactics. Today I allowed instructors from RBTG to instruct my family and it was an awesome experience for them. Great job and keep up the great work guys.

8/27/2018 - Active Shooter Training for the teachers and staff at St. Jane de Chantal School, Bethesda, MD

"It was VERY interactive and absolutely necessary. An eye opening experience for the whole faculty. I loved it"

"The day was really wonderful yesterday! We learned a lot, and though they made it fun, they impressed upon us that what was being taught was for a very important and serious reason, and that we should pay close attention to the lessons.  They impressed upon us that we need to think safety, to keep a vigilant stance emotionally and physically – to observe our surroundings, note changes in behavior of familiar people/strange behavior of those we don’t know, and to listen to/view  cues which may serve as warnings.  They gave us a lot to ponder, and to realize that in today’s world, we have to think safety in every situation/environment.  Makes what was considered as paranoia seem more like a constant state of alertness.  We must all be like the U.S. Coast Guards…se! mper paratus.  The drills they gave us to practice were useful, and eye opening, too!  Just an overall great learning."

"Thanks you for the Active Shooter Training!  Shawn and Mike from RBT did an excellent job preparing the faculty and staff.  They were knowledgeable, engaging, and they forced us out of our comfort zone!  This was all to prepare us for something we hope never happens.  I was proud of all of us for taking it seriously and putting everything we had into the lesson.  Many of us are sore today. ”

I would like to thank you for your time as you shared invaluable life skills to over 50 nurses and health technicians working within the school setting on May 19, 2018. Because of you, we now feel confident that we can make a difference during a life-threatening situation, as you emphasized the need to change our mindset, adjust to our environment, create a plan and prepare to fight. You most certainly left a positive impression on our staff as you enthusiastically presented this 2-hour lecture in a fun and interactive manner. Therefore, we most certainly look forward in welcoming you back and possibly presenting this amazing training to our entire program in the future. ~~ Kind Regards, Malika Henderson-Grays, BSN, RN, Nurse Manager - Ward 1, Children's National Health Health Systems

4/14/2018 - We the staff at Little People Place Child Development Center (a private preschool in Westminster, Md.), sincerely and abundantly want to express our greatest gratitude to Michael Brown and his amazing Reality Based Training Group who traveled a great distance on a Saturday to present the Active Shooter Class to us on Saturday, April 14, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This team of fully trained, highly experienced, and totally committed people completely prepared a large group of wonderful teachers of all ages and backgrounds into a cohesive team of ladies totally prepared physically, psychologically, and intellectually to protect and defend our school’s children and one another, confidently and efficiently in case of threat or attack. Their professionalism, honesty, patience, and expertise were boundless and contagious, developing atmosphere of power, success, and determination far reaching our hope and expectations. The staff experienced intense team building, confidence development, motivation, and self defense training, all in less than 5 hours. We all feel truly indebted and inspired to the Reality Based Training Group and only hope they become certified by the state of Md. for continued training. We personally plan to expand our staff development to include self defense classes, parent involvement, and school age developmentally appropriate exposure. We can never fully express our gratefulness or more highly recommend your class. On a final more personal note, we wholeheartedly thank Micheal and Shawn for your devoted service to our country, our communities, and our children. God bless you both and keep you safe. ~~ In care of children, Mary Burke
