The Lioness Defense Team



Founder/Chief Instructor

Welcome to Lioness Defense and thank you for your interest!

My name is Monique Clarke, and I am the Founder and Owner of Lioness Defense Firearms Training LLC. I started this company with the intent to provide the much-needed education and training on firearms safety and handling to everyday citizen.  

I am currently on active duty in the United States Marine Corps with 19 years of service, 15 of those as a certified Combat Marksmanship Trainer.

Additionally, as a certified Rangemaster, National Rifle Association (NRA), and National African American Gun Association (NAAGA) Instructor, I pride myself on setting the tone for a professional and safe training environment. With over a decade of firearms experience, I have developed a niche for advanced instructional techniques and am well versed in my trade. With that said, I believe in and remain a lifetime student of my craft to ensure I deliver quality instruction to you as the student.

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about me and I look forward to training with you!

Our Site Support Team consists of volunteers who share the love of firearms safety and shooting sports. Our team ranges from and may include, military, law enforcement and civilians. Our volunteers make for a great learning experience and a fun time. Their responsibilities contribute greatly to the smooth and timely execution of the classes and/or training.
