Todd can be contacted at Todd@CombativeFirearms.com.
Todd Fletcher has over 23 years of law enforcement experience and is a multi-discipline instructor providing Basic, Intermediate and Advanced Handgun, Carbine & Shotgun training. Additionally, Todd is certified to provide training in Integrated Use of Force, Empty Hand Control Tactics, Collapsible Baton, Pepper Spray and Use of Force. He is also an AR-15/M-16/M-4, Glock armorer, Smith & Wesson M&P Pistol armorer, and SIG Sauer P320 Pistol armorer.
Todd is a staff instructor for the International Association of Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors (IALEFI) Master Instructor Development Program. He is also a staff instructor and charter member for the National Law Enforcement Firearms Instructor Association (NLEFIA). He has provided training at various regional, national, and international conferences for law enforcement, private security, and military personnel including numerous International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association (ILEETA) Conferences and IALEFI conferences.
Todd has written a multitude of firearms training articles for professional publications for ILEETA, NLEFIA and IALEFI covering topics such as Coaching the Fundamentals, Concealed Carry, Balancing Speed and Accuracy, Low Light Tactics, Using Lasers, Building Searches, Leadership, and Advanced Firearms Training. He is also one of the select Expert Contributors for PoliceOne, the leading online resource for law enforcement with over 3 million visitors per month. In addition, he is a regular columnist for Police & Security News. He has trained and provided consultation services for law enforcement agencies, contract security, military personnel, and armed citizens from coast to coast. He has also testified as an expert witness in cases involving police training and use of force.
Todd incorporates this experience when training new shooters to understand and develop fundamental firearms skills. He helps intermediate shooters to take those skills to the next level by combining the fundamentals with real life training scenarios. Finally, Todd teaches intermediate, advanced, and expert shooters how to prevail in today's world using the lessons learned from real life shooting scenarios.
Todd believes in “leadership by example” and uses this approach while teaching classes. He believes students learn best following a philosophy of “hear— see — do”. This building block approach to training allows students to hear what they are going to do, then see what they are going to do, then execute on what was explained and demonstrated.
Todd believes skill development (the “how’s”), is only one of the overall goals of firearms training. A shooter needs to understand how to self-diagnose marksmanship and tactical errors (the “why’s”) to develop a true proficiency and expertise in firearms. Understanding the “why’s” allows shooters to self-correct mistakes leading to a rapid improvement of their knowledge, skills, and abilities.
