Leonard Casiple (Former Green Beret)- The heart of Ronin Tactics is the most versatile warrior I have ever known. Where some of the elite are specialized in 1 or 2 skills, Tu is well versed in the gamut of skills; whether from short distance with no weapons, medium range with medium range tools, or long-distance engagements, Tu Lam is the perfectionist that can help you shave precious seconds off your technique and elevate your survivability.
The total awareness that is demanded by tactical situations requires the teachings of a complete warrior. It's honorable to be single-skilled; however, it is imperative that you are exposed to a pentathlete mentality so that you can flow from one tactical situation to the next with complete ease.
Karl Prinz- Team Ronin Tactics: Recently I purchased a Task Force Belt and the G2 I received on this gun belt platform was accurate: "...it is simply the best gun belt made or ever made!". It far exceeded my expectations and I can easily see why SMU adopted this gun belt. In closing I want to express my gratitude and that of all my friends to you and other Ronin Tactics Team members who have taken the hard fight to our enemy for a very long time. Have a good one, Karl
Chris Titsworth (U.S. Air Force)- Not only is MSG Lam a great instructor, but he's a very down to earth individual who truly cares about his students. He's not in the business of making tons of money, (that's Ruthie's job ) he does this because he wants to make sure all us sheepdogs have the best training so we can keep the wolf at bay or destroy it if need be. Not only is his training top notch, but his gear is phenomenal as well. He doesn't put anything out unless it's tested and proven in real world applications. If you ever get the chance to train with him, do it, you will come away changed. Thanks Tu for pushing me to a higher level.
Mike Clark (Former Green Beret)- The service and training that Ronin Tactics provides is top notch. The owner and founder, Tu Lam is a true well rounded warrior in every sense of the word. His fitness level is top notch, his combatives level both w/ blades or unarmed is top notch, his long gun skills are top notch, as well as his CQB skills are top notch. The gear and weapons are very practical for combat, competitive shooting, and home defense. What more can you ask for when looking for the best training experience? Tu's name and reputation in SOF (both Tier 1and Tier 2) are legit and it was an honor for me to have served with him. DOL/RLTW!
Robert Millemon- I have taken a multitude of different courses with different instructors. The Ronin Tactics Team is top notch and will push you to increase your abilities irregardless of your skill level. Both Tu and Tom are great instructors and have clearly spent years developing and innovating their craft and have the innate ability to relay their skills into an easy to learn curriculum. I would highly recommend that anyone wanting to take a course with Ronin Tactics, do so. You will not be disappointed.
Dan Fuhr- I just attended a blade course with Ronin Tactics. The course was very well done. I was not sure what to expect going in and was very impressed. The instructor was extremely competent and easy to approach to ask questions. Everything about the course was professional. The three hour course was well planned from start to finish. The lessons built on each other. The real life stories emphasized points in the instruction. I'm still surprised how fast the three hours went. I was so impressed by the training I signed up for his next coming training course in pistol shooting. I highly recommend training with Ronin Tactics.
Gabriel Verde- Very well designed gear and one of the few who effectively combine shooting and physical excercise with experience enough to leave no man untouched. These guys promote a commendable mindset and they deserve all your support.
Sakary Sorn- The folks at Ronin Tactics are genuine people. Their tactical background and years of service are evident in the products they've brought forth. If your into high-quality gear, then Ronin Tactics has what you're looking for. I admire everything that they bring to the table. Don't miss out, check out their products!
Stephanie May- Tu Lam is a certified, credentialed, door kicking bad ass...and among the finest, most honorable men I have been privileged to know.
Ed Mires (Former Special Operations)- Ronin Tactics' training is some of the best if not the best training you can receive. Owner Tu Lam is top notch, upper crust when it comes to marksmanship and tactical training. I've trained with this man and I'm inspired every time. He's truly passionate about his Company, the training it provides, and everyone that is involved with his training. The dedication this man has is beyond reproach. I've personally experienced his dedication, motivation, and determination and know he always puts his best effort into anything he does.
Kathleen Krenzel (U.S. Navy) Tu Lam and crew were/are the turning point in my life professionally and personally. He fixed my shooting stance, my dead lift and to many other things to list. I trust his gear and his training both about physicial training, tactical training and about life implicitly. If you don't follow Ronin. You are wrong.
"I wanted to thank you for the Tactical AR class I took back on July 27th. The group class was small allowing our instructor to give virtually one on one guidance and help. The instructor Tu (still active 20 year special ops soldier), was such a humble, low key instructor who was excellent in communicating what needed to be done and correcting the inevitable mistakes we civilians made. His patience, gentle critiques and perseverance was quite a testament to his teaching skills. We immediately covered all the basic and standard safety procedures in the handling of an AR15, including loading/unloading, chamber safety, use of a 2 or 3 point sling and so on. Tu also showed me how to zero my rifle using a just purchased eoTech red dot sight that I was using for the first time. We ran through a series of exercises that built up layers of experience towards running and shooting drills. This included how to hold the rifle in various stances (I particular enjoyed the stance used for shooting under cars). Though physical conditioning is extremely important, it was really magnified when we did running exercises and you tried to keep a bouncing red dot on target cause your breathing hard. Tu was also excellent at answering what were probably basic questions about handling the weapon, aiming, finger trigger pull and so on. He also emphasized the multiple eye target acquisition techniques and though it took a while to break my bad technique, I eventually got it. So all in all, an incredible experience worth every cent (so pumped up afterwards I barely slept that evening)! I would highly recommend Mavin Tactical (in fact, I signed up to get a private lesson for my family on the AR/9mm). Enjoy!"
"We had a blast last weekend! Thanks for showing us a great time. We have a mini-match scheduled for this coming Saturday to work on the drills you taught us. We would like to get ya'll back down here! Myself and five of my buddies took a class with Ronin Tactics in August 2013. The class was informative and challenging!!! We learned a lot and had a great time! I would recommend this class to anyone that wishes to improve their carbine and pistol skill set!"
Lt. Seth Herman; Midland Police Department Tactical Unit-
"Just wanted to express our sincere appreciation for the outstanding instruction provided by Ronin Tactics during the one-day Carbine / Handgun Course. Our Team was truly impressed by the level of professionalism and knowledge exhibited by each instructor - pushing our abilities past established comfort zones for the betterment of our personnel and, ultimately, the citizens we are sworn to protect. Thank you for your service and we look forward to future training opportunities."
"As a 20-year military veteran, I can tell you that the realism of Ronin's training and the quality of instruction are first-rate. Fact is, combat training like this is not widely available to civilians, and the few places that do offer at a very higher price!!!
From a novice standpoint having never fired a weapon before, my experience with Ronin Tactics was outstanding. The instructors at Ronin Tactics were very knowledgeable and patient. Through several private one on one lessons with Kevin Blair, I learned how to safely handle both a pistol and shotgun, how to fire a weapon properly with correct posture, deal with weapon failures/jams and also work through home defense scenarios. It was great experience and I look forward to more advanced training with them.
