Book A Private Event

Description:

During this one-hour seminar, you will be introduced to self-defense tools that can keep you and your loved ones safe! We will discuss the use of stun guns, pepper spray, kubotans, and other safety products for home and on the go. You will also have the opportunity to compare each tool, ask questions, and seek advice. Knowledge is power, and power raises confidence. With the FBI’s statistic of a violent crime occurring every 26 seconds, our goal is that you leave the seminar more confident about your personal safety than when you arrived. This seminar is designed for teens, adults, and gun owners. Many ask why gun owners? Simply put, guns are lethal weapons and should not be your first option in every encounter. Additionally, not everyone carries a gun on a regular basis or may have just one or maybe a few at home, which may not be readily accessible or even suitable for use by every member of the family. Therefore, having multiple layers of protection will increase the entire family’s chances of winning against an attacker.

Description:


When we think of self-defense, we often think of the physical battle. However, that is just one of two battles you will likely face. The second is the legal battle. When you are forced to defend yourself, especially if that defense resulted in great bodily harm or death, you will be called upon to justify your actions. What you say and do in the critical moments following the encounter could jeopardize your legal stance of self-defense. True, we all have the right to defend ourselves, but in the eyes of the court, we also must defend our actions.


In this two-hour seminar, we will discuss the five legal elements of self-defense and how they apply to the defense of self, others, and property. We will also discuss best practices for interacting with police, family, friends, and social media. Remember, the use of self-defense is not by accident. You are legally accountable for your actions; therefore, mastering the law of self-defense should be a critical component of your self-defense training.

Description:


Are you and your family prepared to win the battle against a home intruder? During your staging appointment, we will walk through your home as we analyze your current protection plan through the lens of a criminal. Then through discussion and role-play, we create a security plan that incorporates defensive tools and takes into account every member of your family.


This individualized 1.5-hour seminar is designed for adults, even those with firearms. Many ask me why a gun owner would need this seminar? Simply put, many homes have just one or a couple of firearms, which may not be readily accessible or suitable for use by every member of the family. Therefore, having multiple layers of strategically placed protection device increases the entire family’s chances of surviving a home invasion.
