Self Defense

Have you considered the idea that one day you may have to defend yourself? With everything going on in the world around us having some skills to deal with various situations is important. There are literally hundreds of scenarios where we might find ourselves in danger. With the current conflicts happening in major cities and the calls for "defunding the police" and violent nature of certain actors learning to defend oneself from anger, violence, and assaults of all kinds has never been more important.

I can give you several scenarios that have happened recently. One, a violent and angry group of people surround your vehicle as you are driving down the highway. Perhaps you bump one of them and they become enraged. What do you do? How do you respond? What if your children are in the vehicle? Two, you are out shopping you go into the store and come out, when you are putting your items into your trunk someone walks up behind you and dumps you into your trunk and takes your keys. What do you do? How do you handle that situation? I have an even better question. How do you avoid those things and prevent them from happening in the first place? Being prepared beforehand requires thoughtful contemplation. Knowing your surroundings requires active consideration. Everyone one of us needs a plan. We need to know what we are going to do before we do it or at least have some concept of how we are going to respond depending on present circumstances. 

Given the current state of our world, we cannot assume we are safe. We cannot depend on others to save us or even help us in the event of trouble. With police response times all over the country being what they are we cannot even put our hope and trust in police officers. That isn't a knock on law enforcement it is reality. Our law enforcement community works hard but they can't be everywhere all the time. 

My encouragement is this: Get some self-defense skills, begin thinking about "what ifs" and what might happen. Think about how you might respond, how you could respond. HAVE A PLAN!

We offer a variety of classes and services for all ages, skill levels. Your safety is our business.
