BLACK FRIDAY - 48 HOUR SALE

PROTECTOR SYMPOSIUM 2.0

TRAIN WITH 7 OF THE WORLD'S BEST

You Only Have to Turn on the News for a Few Minutes to Be Reminded That We Live in a World Where...
Things Can Go from Good... to Bad, Very Quickly...

A leisurely, fun-filled day at the park- or even a simple run to the grocery store, can turn into a life-threatening nightmare within an unbelievably short period of time.

Mass shootings, abductions, sexual assaults, fatal stabbings, riots, terrorist attacks...

The reality is that our personal safety, and of those we care for- is fragile, at best.

In fact, it’s not a matter IF you will ever be exposed to a violent threat - but WHEN.
It doesn't matter whether it’s a parent with children at a theme park, a first responder faced with an unknown emergency, or someone in an occupation that involves directly interacting with the public…
When it comes to your safety and of your loved ones, never trust anyone but yourself with your own security.⁣
And yet, sadly- that is EXACTLY what so many people do.

They know they aren’t prepared if they 're faced with a violent threat.

But the thought of it is scary and too uncomfortable...

So they push the thought aside and just hope "that nothing bad happens".
“Hoping something bad doesn't happen” is NOT a strategy..⁣
There ARE things you can do.

There ARE simple steps you can take to put yourself in control of your own personal safety.

You CAN learn real-life, easy to apply skills that will drastically enhance your ability to identify violence before it happens and know exactly how to react should you need to..
