Las Vegas, Nevada, April 22, 2020
The American Gun Association is proud to announce the election of new Chairman, Tim Larkin to oversee their over 64,000+ members.
American self-defense expert and Best Selling Author Tim Larkin is widely known and respected for his powerful, scientifically-proven self-defense system – Target Focus Training (TFT)
As a former military intelligence officer with an impressive career that spanned 25 years, Larkin trained individuals across 52 countries in how to deal with imminent violence. His experience and expertise make Larkin expressly qualified to take the helm of the AGA.
Over 10,000 clients are trained in his Target Focus Training (TFT) from Military Special Operations Units, Special Law Enforcement Teams, Celebrities and high profile business leaders.
Covered in numerous martial arts and self-defense industry publications for his special close combat training techniques, Larkin became the go-to expert on victim’s rights and self-defense topics.
As America’s leading pro-victim’s rights and personal safety advocate, Larkin earned his place in the Black Belt Hall of Fame. That was in 2011, the same year he was named Self-Defense Instructor of the Year.
A high achiever, Larkin is accustomed to holding lead positions and earning top stripes for his professional endeavors.
Larkin says that until now he considered one of his biggest achievements as securing the Chief of Naval Education Training that brought top credentials to the unique coursework offered by Direct Action Corporation, a company in which he was a master instructor.
Wanting to share his experiences to help even more people, Larkin authored a number of books. His first two titles, How to Survive the Most Critical 5 Seconds of Your Life and Survive the Unthinkable: A Total Guide to Women’s Self-Protection gained a wildly popular following. The latter title was published in 2013 – with the foreword written by Tony Robbins – debuting at #4 on the New York Times bestseller list and on the USA Today bestseller list.
Most recently, Larkin co-authored When Violence Is the Answer: Learning How to Do What It Takes When Your Life Is at Stake, now available in audiobook format.
Larkin’s books educate readers on identifying the difference between aggressive social behaviors and actual threats that may jeopardize one’s personal safety. His self-defense techniques teach readers to target specific areas on an attacker’s body for a strategic counterattack. It is rare to have such a uniquely qualified individual become the head of the AGA.
In his new role as AGA Chairman, Larkin hopes to continue to educate and protect every American citizen’s right to defend themselves. He’ll help members learn the importance of self protection and when to attack, with the goal of helping people live safer lives by understanding the concept of Necessary Violence.
