New Sage Dynamics Instructor: Jon “Duffy” Dufresne
Sage Dynamics has added a new instructor to their cadre, Jon Dufresne, and as it turns out he has a whole lot of nicknames. They include Duff and Duffy (because who could possibly pronounce that last name?), and for reasons which we’re certain to learn soon, Mocha Bear.
Here’s a short bio:
Jon Dufresne is a former US Army Ranger. He deployed multiple times with the 3rd Battalion 75th Ranger Regiment to the Middle East in a variety of capacities. He is experienced in counter terrorism tactics, reconnaissance, Airborne operations and is a certified Emergency Medical Technician. His past civilian experience includes executive protection and various law enforcement consultant positions. He is currently pursuing a degree in Business Management.
Aaron Cowan, owner and lead instructor of Sage Dynamics (and prolific writer of informative articles, the best of which can be read right here on BreachBangClear) had this to say:
My personal take on Jon:
100% high energy, cat-like shooter with a common sense approach to teaching students regardless of their background. Jon’s attention to specific students needs and ability to make the complex simple is one of the reasons I approached him about teaching for Sage. We met when he attended a Sage handgun course, and by his 5th course with me I was convinced he was exactly what I was looking for in an Instructor; the ability to teach the Sage program while having the background to input his own wealth of knowledge and experience to keep the program from being dogmatic. I want thinkers, not kool aide drinkers representing, and he’s that.
His nick name is Duff, Duffy, or Mocha Bear, he hangs out with a bunch of Cubans, likes fruity drinks, can’t seem to wear pants….oh and he literally owns like four T-shirts.

Emergency: Activate firefly, deploy green (or brown) star cluster, get your wank sock out of your ruck and stand by ’til we come get you.
