 ABOUT US

Trigger Trainers

Steven Shapiro, Trigger Trainers Chief Instructor

 

As a young adult, Steven became involved in shooting sports, rifle hunting and karate. While in college he earned his Black Belt in Moo-Du-Kwan Tang-Soo-Do, a Korean Martial Art and won several competitive karate competition awards.

After college, Steven worked at the Kennedy Space Center and via his on-base contacts began training in Oo-Du-Kwan Tang-Soo-Do, a combat form of the Tang-Soo-Do Martial Art as well as handgun and rifle training and practice with friends in base security.

A successful career in Software Consulting, and raising a family distracted him from his training in the Martial Arts and Shooting Sports for many years, but he resumed his training in the mid 1990's when his son was old enough to get involved in these activities.

Steven then earned his second Black Belt, this time in Shotokan Karate from an instructor with a 3rd Generation direct lineage to Gichin Funakoshi, credited as the founder of Shotokan Karate and the person who coined the term Kara-Te (Open Hand). Steven then earned his Instructor's Certification as a Shotokan Karate Instructor.

During this time Steven became involved in the Boy Scouts of America with his son. He has been a Boy Scouting Volunteer (Scouter) and has held positions of Cub Scout Den Leader, Webelos Den Leader, Boy Scout Assistant Scoutmaster and then Boy Scout Scoutmaster, ultimately earning his BSA District's First Annual Scoutmaster of the Year Award.

He is also a member of the Calusa District Training Committee and currently trains youth and adults in the various Scouting skills necessary for Boy Scouts and Boy Scout Leaders.

During his years in Boy Scouting, Steven became involved in the various BSA Shooting Sports Programs including Archery, Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun (including muzzle loading pistol, rifle and shotgun) and became a council certified Range Master with credentials to teach Boy Scout Merit Badges in each of these disciplines to youth and train adults in the teaching of these disciplines.

Recently the BSA changed their qualification requirements for firearms instruction and required that all Merit Badge Instructors be NRA Certified Instructors. To comply, Steven became an NRA Certified Instructor in the following:

Pistol Instructor (FIRST Steps and Basic for Modern and Muzzle Loading)

Rifle Instructor (FIRST Steps and Basic for Modern and Muzzle Loading)

Shotgun Instructor (FIRST Steps and Basic for Modern and Muzzle Loading)

Personal Protection In the Home Instructor

Personal Protection Outside the Home Instructor

Refuse To Be A Victim

NRA Range Safety Officer (RSO)

Upon receiving his NRA Certifications, Steven discovered a strong demand from his friends and family to learn more about firearms - specifically, defensive firearms for use in personal protection inside and outside the home. He also discovered a strong desire from many of these people to obtain their Florida Carry Concealed Weapons License, especially the owners of small retail businesses who wanted to be prepared to defend and protect themselves during business hours as well as after hours when making bank deposits. To meet this demand, he started Trigger Trainers and offers NRA Firearms courses, Florida Concealed Carry courses and private / personal instruction to individuals and groups.

 

Steven currently works days as the Software Product Manager for a company in Tampa, Florida, and spends his evenings and weekends as a Trigger Trainers firearms instructor.
