Outdoor shooting classes are back!

We had to move the August IDR, but now it is locked down for October. We also added an outdoor Intensive Handgun Skills class to October. Take your pick or do ’em both! Call the office to register (M-F, 12p-5p).

Intermediate Defensive Rifle is set for October!

Increase your abilities at Close Quarters Marksmanship, and become a total “rifleman” with the ability to shoot to the potential of your rifle. IDR will challenge you!

For the CQM portion of the course, we will spend significant time in the ranges of 0–50 meters mastering speed and accuracy while using available cover and movement as is required in Urban Combat situations. This portion will be fast moving and the constantly changing drills and environment will challenge the shooter’s mental and physical abilities.

The Rifleman portion of the course will be spent examining and testing the shooter’s abilities at 100–600 meters. This is a chance to find out what the maximum capabilities of you and your equipment are. Intermediate Defensive Rifle is October 19-21 at Ravensdale, WA. Call the office to register.

Shoot Intensive Handgun outdoors

October is a great month to shoot outside — the sweltering days are over, the cold days haven’t begun. And what better way to welcome fall than Intensive Handgun Skills. Make a giant leap forward in your speed and accuracy — and nothing builds speed like shooting steel. Intensive Handgun Skills is October 5-7 at Ravensdale, WA. Call the office to register.

Make plans for the last General Defensive Rifle for 2018

General Defensive Rifle is an action-packed 3-day class that will give you a solid defensive rifle foundation. Safety, marksmanship, carry positions, firing positions, reloads, movement, tactics, low-light, recommended gear and much more! If you want to learn to run your rifle, this is the premiere rifle class to do it. GDR is September 21-23 at West Coast Armory in Bellevue. Call the office to register.

And sign up for Pepper Spray

The Pepper Spray Seminar is back! Make time for this fun 3-hour class and add this excellent tool to your toolbox. Pepper Spray is September 25, 7p-10p, at West Coast Armory in Bellevue. Call the office to register.

Fall Flash Sale on Self Defense — 15% Off!

Learn to fight back

Right now you can increase your safety and keep some money in your pocket. Through 10/10 get 15% off the November USD and the December DFK with promo code “Fall2017“.

Unarmed Self Defense helps you develop the soft skills to avoid being attacked — awareness, decisiveness, body language — and the physical skills to escape from an attack. The confidence you gain from the ability to solve these problems ripples through every part of your life. Unarmed Self Defense is November 4-5.

Defensive Folding Knife is the most powerful one-day self defense class InSights teaches. At the end of this class you will have the skill to use a deadly force tool to escape from an attack. A folding knife fits into an important niche: you can have one in many places you can’t have a gun, it is a better answer than a gun in some situations, and it is an essential accessory to your gun if you carry one. Defensive Folding Knife is December 16.

And there are still a few slots left in the Pepper Spray Seminar October 10!

Unarmed Self Defense, Defensive Folding Knife, and Pepper Spray are part of a layered self defense system and are foundational InSights classes. Sign up with promo code “Fall2017” by 10/10 to get 15% off USD and DFK! Cannot be combined with any other offer or discount.

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.
