Though the link between firearms and martial arts may not always be clear, firearm training is absolutely a part of self-defense. The misuse of firearms has received a lot of negative publicity in recent years. However, if used correctly, a firearm can be instrumental in the defense of your home and family. For this reason, Hoshin Dojo promotes firearm safety and training.
While not part of the weekly curriculum, NRA pistol and Oklahoma Self-Defense Act (SDA) gun safety courses can be scheduled.
As a service provided to the military and retired military of Tinker Air Force Base, Hoshin Dojo can provide SDA training exemption certificates to those who are:
- “A person on active military duty, National Guard duty or regular military reserve duty who is a legal resident of this state and who is trained and qualified in the use of handguns.”
- “A person honorably discharged from active military duty, National Guard duty or military reserves within twenty (20) years preceding the date of the application for a handgun license pursuant to the provisions of the Oklahoma Self‑Defense Act, who is a legal resident of this state, and who has been trained and qualified in the use of handguns.”
The SDA gun safety course, or training exemption letter, is a requirement for obtaining a concealed carry license in the state of Oklahoma.
