We instill knowledge, skills and attitude based on solid foundations: 
  • Situational awareness
  • If you can avoid a physical confrontation in complete safety, do so
  • If you have time and distance when potential confrontation is evident, call 911, don’t hang up and provide as much information as possible. Keep line of communication open until Law Enforcement arrives on scene, even if you have to drop phone

These simple measures and knowing the law, will most likely provide you tools eliminating the need to ever pull the trigger defending self and innocent others.
