Byron Franklin is the president & lead firearms instructor at Train 2 Fight. Raised in a single parent household in North Philadelphia, almost becoming a victim of armed robbery at a young age and becoming a father, it was then that he decided to never fall victim to the streets of Philadelphia.

After intensive training with Michael Hall, his mentor, he added firearms instructor to the long list of qualifications on his resume.

“You have the right to feel secure! When you and your family’s safety depend on it, a phone call can take too long.”
— B. Franklin, President Train 2 Fight, LLC

Our Approach



Train 2 Fight was established in 2015 and we are the go to company for firearms and self defense needs. Our company is here to train you on techniques that will leave you better equipped to protect yourself, your business and your loved ones.

After seeing countless news reports of women being attacked, beaten or worse and victims of domestic violence; those are some of the reasons we push to provide the greatest training with minimal effort.

In these days and times we have been contacted more by businesses to do active shooter courses, and by husbands to train their wives so they can protect their children & themselves. We are also crontacted by security companies to ensure that their armed employees have all the tools needed to secure all of their client locations.

"Byron was very professional thorough with the gun safety course. It was my first time and he made me feel very comfortable. I plan to come back and bring friends. I highly recommend Train 2 Fight!"

"Had a mother daughter date and it was a great time with lots of opportunity for learning, fun, and of course friendly competition in a very relaxed (for a gun range) type setting, with a calm and patient trainer! Perfect for any girls day, date, or just to learn a new set of skills!"

- T. Lilliana

Thanks Byron. Great class! My girlfriend and I had a great time. You were very thorough in your instructions and we learned a lot. As someone who never had experience with shooting, we feel more comfortable using a firearm. We plan on practicing on a regular basis. We HIGHLY recommend this class!

“A quote taken from the movie Enough. “You have divine animal right to protect your life and that of your offspring,” Those are the words I live by. Being a survivor of domestic violence, rape, a woman and a single mother of 4, Train 2 Fight gave me the tools necessary to do just that.”
