Not specifically, no, but check on ar15.com in the Hometown areas (check Washington State and maybe Utah). There are a lot of roving classes you can take for handgun, shotgun, carbine, knife, etc.

Check locally for some place that teaches Krav Maga.

Thanks a lot for the quick replies. I've been looking at locations that offer Krav Maga training around me and there seems to be a limitation on what they are willing to teach. They offer a version to the public but another that is strictly restricted to military/police officers. I don't like the idea of wasting my time learning a watered down version, can anyone confirm the differences between the two versions? Is it illegal to learn some martial arts ?

When it becomes necessary to ask that question, its answer should become unimportant.

If I were you, I'd try to find someone who will teach you the proper techniques, not some LEO-approved diluted version.
