Situational Awareness & Human Trafficking Awareness Course
September 16th

Situational Awareness is the start of your defensive journey. It is NOT about being paranoid but to be prepared emotionally and physically so you are less likely to make yourself a target for threats. The way we walk, the speed we walk and the distractions we allow in your daily routine can tip of threats that you could be an easy target. This course discusses what we can do different so we are not a easy target for malicious crime. Though the odds of being attracted see non-existent, we never know until it happens. If we are prepared and follow simple guidelines, the odds go even lower.

Human trafficking (modern day slavery) and smuggling is a major problem in the USA and throughout the world. This crime is often called the crime in the shadows as most of us may never see a trafficker or someone being trafficked. However, this crime is everywhere and is not just people coming from our borders, this crime has escalated into our schools and in public. This portion of the course, we partnered with Homeland Security, to bring awareness to parents and to kids and young adults in high school and college. See, like the recent movie that came out, the only way to slow or even stop this crime is by awareness and spreading the word. 

Learning from this course:

Learn what situational awareness is and how it makes you safer

The human behaviors and physical characteristics of a victim and non-victim 

How to report a potential threat and put yourself in a safe situation

Simple steps to keep from tipping of potential threats

What human trafficking is and who it occurs here in the USA. 

How to report potential trafficking to authorities

How to spot traffickers and those being trafficked 


Concealed Carry & Home Defense Fundamentals
October 7th

Dallas police car2020.jpg

This course is a beginning to end in owning a firearm and defending yourself from threats. If you are looking to purchase a firearm for self-defense, already own a firearm and want to know the latest about laws and defending yourself, or you do not own a firearm and want to know what it is all about, this course is for you.

Many firearm courses are about how to use one, this course is about carrying one in public, how to have the right mindset when in public, and what do you do if you use a deadly weapon in defense of yourself or someone else. This is very rarely taught but is considered the most important so you can make the right decisions before, during and after a defensive situation.
