Can anybody attend this training?
Absolutely! Anybody can learn the skills bodyguards used to keep themselves and their clients safe from violence. There are NO physical requirements for this class. If you are desirous to be more security conscious and to learn how to avoid violence, you are invited to attend this training.
Will we be doing martial arts? NO. This is not a martial arts class. This class teaches you to have a security, or “hard target” mindset. It’s about awareness and having the tools to avoid danger, not fight your way out of it.
Will we be learning to shoot? NO See above. We encourage students to learn both hand-to-hand combat and weapons skills, but nothing will keep you safer than avoiding danger in the first place. That is what we teach you to do.
How long does the training last?
The full training lasts 2 full days and includes (1) the hard target mindset, (2) the tools bodyguards use to avoid danger, and (3) a live scenario to help you practice these skills. Students can take just the one-day class and not do the live scenario (although we encourage you to do the scenario). We also, by special arrangement, can provide a 4-hour course at your location for those who cannot do a full day (see below).

What do I need to bring?
Wear comfortable but modest clothing to the training. We will do some exercises to practice certain hard target skills, but these will not be taxing physical exercises. You might want to consider bringing a set of clothing that you might wear in the types of situations where you would put these skills into practice. For example, if your main security concerns involve business travel, bring the sort of clothes you would wear when traveling for business.
If you will be doing the live scenario, we would especially encourage you to bring the type of clothing you would wear when putting these new skills into practice, in order to make the live scenario more realistic.
Do NOT bring firearms or other weapons to class. You will not be practicing “self defense” techniques; you will be practicing violence avoidance.
