Women’s Self-Defense and Awareness — Self-defense and situational awareness is a need for people at all ages and from all walks of life. With this said, self-defense strategies for men and women are different as assaults on men and women are different.

90% of self-defense education is comprised of risk reduction strategies; only 10% is defensive physical skill. This 4-hour program provides education and training focusing primarily on awareness and prevention along with realistic options that will help students avoid, escape and survive assaults if they do occur.

This is a 4-hour session.

Target Audience: 

  • Females age 18 & up

Law Enforcement Active Shooter Response Training — This training program will instruct the students in tactical options for single and multiple officer responses to an active shooter through interactive scenarios.

This is a 4-hour session.

Target Audience:

  • Sworn law enforcement officers and administrators
