We currently offer the following programs:

4-Hour Be Your Own Bodyguard (BYOB) Introductory Class

Our four hour classes are a great introduction to the BYOB™ class with discussion time on fear management and personal awareness, as well as legal issues with self defense.  You will get hands on time with drills and scenarios and a functional understanding of how your body/human weapon system works!

You'll learn: 

  • how to re-connect with your intuition and instincts
  • how to recognize a fear spike and how to listen to it its signals and most importantly, how to manage fear
  • simple, functional movements, based on how real people move

This one day course will give you the essential knowledge to improve your situational awareness, verbal skills and equip you with simple & practical self defense.

Created by Coach Tony Blauer, a pioneer of modern self-defense, the SPEAR program is based on human physiology and natural biomechanics. It used the startle-flinch response, which is part of the human survival reflex, as the catalyst for all protective movement.

Basic Firearms/Self-Defense - Level 1

This is an 8 hour class that combines basic firearms and hands on self-defense training in one class. If you have made the investment in a handgun to protect yourself, your next step is to get the proper training so you can be prepared and equipped to use your gun effectively in a life or death situation. In this class you will learn basic knowledge, skills and the attitude necessary for owning and safely operating a handgun. The firearms class is taught by NRA certified pistol instructor and owner of Counter Violence LLC, Clay Folkner.

Owning a handgun does not mean that you will always be able to access it immediately in a life or death situation. In this class you will also learn basic self-defense skills that will help you detect danger, manage your fear and buy you time to get to your firearm. It will equip you to weather the ambush and get into the fight.

Cost of the class is $125/person.


School Programs

These 7th & 8th graders at Mercy Montessori learned how to protect themselves.  They received a 3-hour program (one hour each week for 3 weeks) as part of their health & wellness program.  On the last day I asked them what they learned, their responses included: "Keep your head on a swivel."  "Always be aware."  "How to SPEAR."  "Outside 90"  "I know I can fight back."  "It's good to know that now we know how to defend ourselves."  One of the parents watching the program said, "Us moms need to take this class as well."

This is a class that everyone can and needs to learn.  As parents it is our responsibility to protect our kids and one of the ways we do that is to make sure they know how to protect themselves because they won't always be with us.  We also protect our kids by knowing how to defend ourselves if we are attacked.  

If you would like to bring this program to your school, please contact me by email at or call me at 812.584.1470
