This course is designed to help teach safety, awareness and physical self-defense skills to the running community. Our area has wonderful running trails and a large running population, many of whom have been shocked by recent attacks on runners over the past few years. While these are statistically rare we want you to have the tips and tools necessary to keep yourself safe while pursuing your passion. This course is specifically designed to discuss issues surrounding outdoor attacks while running. We will discuss strategies for both avoiding dangerous situations as well as how to deal with a spontaneous attack as it relates to the running community. Please wear comfortable clothing and tennis shoes, and bring a hair tie for long hair. This is a hands-on safety and self-defense course.


T.B.A.   9am to 12 noon:  3 Hour Holiday Safety Seminar: Cost $45.00     This is a course that is only offered once a year in November. Please preregister by  online using the link above.

Along with holiday cheer the season also brings an unwanted trend, elevated criminal activity. In some cities, the two weeks following Christmas mark the highest rates of burglary all year. Rape and sexual assault also can spike due to the opportunities holiday parties can present to predators. Additionally, Robberies and home invasions see a spike during the holiday season.  This seminar will offer training, tips, strategies and tools to help you and your loved ones have a safe holiday season. We will discuss safe shopping strategies, parking lot safety, travel tips, robbery prevention tips and home defense ideas. Safety products can make a great stocking stuffer and we will partner with Robin Padilla from Damsels in Defense who will be there to discuss and demonstrate all of their great self-defense tools. Please wear comfortable clothing and tennis shoes, and bring a hair tie for long hair. This is a hands-on safety and self-defense course.
