If you haven’t already heard, in order to keep with our mission of spreading defense related knowledge for the benefit of everyone, we’ve expanded our curriculum to include a wider array of hand-to-hand training. Because, let’s face it, your firearm should be THE LAST option you choose in almost every single threatening encounter you’ll face. One of our new classes is our Active Defense Workshop that mostly addresses the concepts of avoiding danger to prevent it in the first place.
Our Active Defense Workshop is an introduction into our philosophy of the importance of being a well-rounded defense minded citizen. The goal of this course is to be able to identify indicators of danger and act accordingly to avoid, deter, or subdue that danger. We use the word active to indicate a shift in mindset to adopt a pro-active stance on personal defense. We’ve also detached the term self from defense because we feel that good, responsible people should do as much to protect others as for themselves.
In this three-hour workshop we will define Situational Awareness, discuss what indicators to look for to identify threats, and how to react once a threat is confirmed. We will also discuss what to do in an Active Shooter event. The workshop concludes with learning a few defensive concepts and practice applying those techniques. The emphasis is on techniques that are simple, adaptable, and effective. This work shop provides the baseline for our Active Defense Program. No prior experience is required.
Currently, we are conducting classes in Naperville, of 5th Ave, near the downtown area, but we’re working on locking down agreements with several facilities in the area to be able to provide this workshop to as many people as possible.
Standard fee is $75 for the three-hour class, but we’re currently offering it at $35 so you have no reason not to sign up! We have space available in our May and June Workshops. Click here to sign up for the next session dates.
