Self Defense & Firearms

Self defense is more than just being able to fight. It is the ability to overcome physical adversity and to even avoid a fight in the first place. With each of our self defense and firearms classes, you will gain the tools to overcome almost every situation you may encounter.

We offer the following self defense centered classes:

Women's Self Defense & Rape Risk Reduction seminar - This class covers many simple and effective defenses to many rape and assault situations. This class will be stress based because the actual situation shouldn‘t be the first time you try a new technique.  If you are planning to attend this class, please wear comfortable shoes, and workout clothes!

Home Invasion Response -  This four hour class will deal with the realistic possibility of a home invasion. Do you have a plan? Do you have the skills to deal with an intruder? During this class we will cover:  weapon selection (both firearms and improvised weapons), flashlight tactics, building clearing techniques, plan development, and legal aspects.

Basic Defensive Tactics -  In this four hour class, we will cover basic open hand strikes (closed handed strikes cause injury), leg strikes, basic ground defense, basic knife defense, and limited knife strikes. 

Emergency First Aid - First aid isn't typically what you think of when it comes to self defense.  Well, it should be!  Self defense is all about being prepared to handle a physical assault.  But what happens after the assault?  What do you do if you or a family member is injured?  Can you stop the bleeding?  Can you treat someone for shock?  During this intense 4 hour class, we are going to help you answer some of those questions.  We will cover such topics as:  Gunshot wounds, tourniquet use, shock, CPR, puncture wounds, heat emergencies, legal aspects, and more.
