NRA-certified instructor Lateif Dickerson gladly shares his firearms expertise for both the real and theoretical world, which led Michio Kaku to seek his insight for Discovery Channel's Sci Fi Science. When not contemplating the possibility of Star Wars-caliber firepower, Lateif leads classes in both armed and unarmed self-defense for beginner through advanced students at New Jersey Firearms Academy. He and his team also extend their courses to specialty topics, such as First Aid in the wilderness. Beyond civilian training, Lateif instructs law-enforcement and security personnel with programs such as SORA and K-9 training. The academy also houses a shop stocked with firearms gear.
