Course Description


If you were attacked in an instance, would you be able to react decisively enough to stop the threat? Would you even know how to use your spray? Who's to say that you wouldn't spray yourself by accident, hold it incorrectly and have it snatched away from you or knocked from your hand by an attacker? My guess is that you are not well-versed in the mechanics of utilizing pepper spray for self-defense. Otherwise you would not be here.

So many people lack the training necessary to properly deploy their spray, react to and effectively neutralize a threat. They make the mistake of treating their defense spray like a toy, when it is really a weapon. And like any weapon, it requires proper training.

Without that training you might as well be walking around empty-handed, because that spray will not do you any good when you fumble to look for it in your purse, realize that you forgot to bring it with you or become paralyzed with fear when suddenly attacked. Your attacker is NOT going to wait for you to put up a defense, build up confidence or give you time to react to his or her predatory advances. You need to be ready for the fight before it even begins. And I will help show you how.
