ERIC S. PENNINGTON
Owner, CEO, & Instructor
Eric was born and raised in a small Southern agricultural community. He comes from a long line of military war-fighters from UDT and SEALs to Intel. As a young man, he traveled on missions and humanitarian trips to Honduras, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, and the Yucatán.
He joined the Marine Corps and served as a Reconnaissance and Intel Marine. He was stationed at 1st Reconnaissance BN and in the deserts and mountains of Afghanistan. He operated on countless missions with one of the most elite units in the world.
After being injured in Afghanistan, he returned home, but his fighting spirit and desire to protect others was still very much alive. He joined the police department and worked his way from Patrolman to Drug Interdiction Traffic Unit to Sergeant of Investigations. He helped develop the SWAT team, on which he still serves today.
His passion has been and continues to be teaching what he has learned to military, law enforcement and civilians. Through Full-Tilt Tactical, he is bringing his knowledge, training, and experience to anyone who does not want to be a victim and would like to be prepared to defend themselves and others.
