Back to School Self Defense Classes!

Get ready for a safe school year

Are your kids heading to high school or college in the fall? Add one or more of these classes to your list of school supplies!

Pepper spray is an awesome self-defense tool that buys you time to escape to safety. Our three-hour Pepper Spray Seminar will teach you how to use it, and answer all your questions. Plus you’ll get a chance to spray our instructor with INERT(!) spray in simulated encounters. Many colleges allow students to carry pepper spray. Check your school’s policy, and then get some training and learn the right kind to carry. (Worst case, you can always carry it off campus!) The next class is August 8.

Check out our new three-hour Self Defense Seminar. This class will teach you some key physical techniques. And it will help you avoid trouble by increasing your awareness and using body language as a self defense tool. This is also a great class for people who want to increase their safety in the workplace. Join instructor Benjamin Olmsted for this fun and informative new class on August 24 or September 21.

And of course there’s the granddaddy of them all, Unarmed Self Defense. This classic two-day InSights class will help you stun and disable an attacker and escape to safety. We will teach you a simple, powerful system that not only increases personal safety, but builds confidence and awareness so you can steer clear of trouble. The next class is September 30-October 1.

Children under 18 in these classes must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Shootings, stabbings, bombings, vehicular attacks — what they all have in common is life-threatening trauma. There are some injuries where death before the arrival of EMS is almost assured if not managed correctly and rapidly.

  • The true nature of civilian gunshot wounds, their low lethality and realities of their medical management

  • Techniques for moving casualties to a safer environment

General Defensive Rifle teaches individual tactics and the use of the rifle in close range, high speed, defensive scenarios. You will learn rapid assumption of various shooting positions to maximize the use of cover and concealment and to provide for a more stable firing platform. There’s even a full night-fire/low-light session. GDR is June 16-18 and September 15-17.

Intensive Handgun Skills is a “shooters” course with maximum range time. The course stresses accuracy and speed but not speed at the expense of accuracy. This is a perfect course for shooters who want to maximize their use of the handgun for self-defense or competitive shooters who could use fine-tuning of their technique. After this course you will be shooting faster and with a greater degree of accuracy than ever before. IHS is July 14-16.

Street and Vehicle Tactics will give you the ability to recognize, avoid, and if necessary WIN a violent street encounter. This course deals with self-defense while at work, in your automobile, when traveling, and while in public settings (like restaurants, shopping malls, and theaters). More than half the course will deal with situations in and around your car. Many courses teach you how to shoot. Our tactics courses teach you how to not have to shoot – and how to win if shooting is required. SVT is July 21-23.

Intermediate Defensive Handgun will teach you to reflexively employ your handgun and to put fight stopping hits on your opponent regardless of the tactical environment, position, or injury you find yourself with. Movement and verbal commands will be stressed throughout the course. Build on the foundation you started in General Defensive Handgun. IDH is August 18-20.

Limited time only: Call between May 4 – May 11
