While serving in the military (75th Ranger Regiment) and as a federal law enforcement officer (Federal Air Marshal) I have been fortunate to train with some of the best instructors/trainers in the world.  Jody rates right up there with the best.  Not only was taking her course worth my money it was more importantly worth my time.  If you can get in to one of her classes count yourself fortunate because no matter your experience level you will be better for it.  - John T.

I am in shock, I am humbled, I am amazed that this unassuming woman has so much knowledge and passion for firearms that she has dedicated her life to helping others become better. As a former Army Paratrooper Combat Veteran of the Gulf War and avid shooter I took several classes from Jody and truly it shook my world about what I thought I knew about shooting and shooting sports. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your dedication, science behind the trigger, simplicity and passion for what you do. I met Jody close to two years ago and she introduced herself as a firearms instructor with Girl on Fire. I thought I knew enough about guns, but apparently I did not. After her class and one on one instruction, I changed my grip and I was amazed, I mean truly amazed that my shot groups, control and overall thought process about taking a shot has just changed for the better. I cannot say enough about her training and instructions trying to change my old paratrooper ways, but I took a chance and I thank God that I did. Thank you Jody for all that you do. You make it look easy, but I know you work hard every day improving and I finally realize that as shooter, we need to keep training and I highly recommend Jody Maki and Girl on Fire!!

I have learned more from Jody Maki and GirlOnFre than in my entire Law Enforcement career and years using firearms.  I cannot overstate enough the value of the knowledge I have received from this instructor.  Outstanding.
