Turpeaux’s personal defense training endorsed by 5.11 Tactical
Alpharetta, Georgia – March 22, 2013 – Nikki Turpeaux, lead instructor and CEO of Archangel Tactical, LLC, recently spent time on the range training employees of the 5.11 Tactical Development Center in Irvine, Calif. At the invitation of 5.11 Tactical, Turpeaux taught personal defense tactics in firearms, edged weapons and unarmed maneuvers.
At the culmination of the training, 5.11 invited Turpeaux to join forces and represent the company as its Ambassador for Tactical Training Program.
“For the past two years, I have imagined what it would be like to visit 5.11 Tactical and have an opportunity to train with their team. I am very excited about the opportunity to be their Ambassador for the Tactical Training Alliance Program,” said Turpeaux.
She continued, “I have always been fond of 5.11 and its helpful and supportive staff. I feel so blessed that this opportunity has finally come along and I am honored. Thank you to CEO, Tom Davin, and to his amazing staff for welcoming me onboard!"
Bill Berry, 5.11 Tactical Director of Global Training and Development, remarked, “As a retired law enforcement trainer in both firearms and defensive tactics, I was very interested in seeing Nikki's program and how she related the key elements to civilian students. It was clear to me that she has developed a very comprehensive and accurate curriculum.
"I was also impressed with the way she related the curriculum to the women in the group. She provided an atmosphere that made them feel comfortable, which is critical to learning. I would recommend her program to any of our new civilian employees as a way to become familiar and competent with the use of a handgun for self defense.”
Berry added, “Nikki should be proud of what she has accomplished in the development of her program. I welcome her to our 5.11 team."
