The Ultimate Father’s Day Gift: A Self-Defense Event That Could Save His Life

Father’s Day is around the corner, and you’re looking for the perfect gift for your dad. You want something that shows him how much you care, something that he’ll remember and appreciate for years to come.

How about something that could save his life?

Introducing our self-defense event for the Dad or Mentor in your life: a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn how to protect yourself and your family from gun violence. This event is not just a training session; it’s a fun and interactive experience that will teach you valuable skills and empower you to take charge of your safety.

You’ll learn from the best: our trainers are experts in trauma-informed education, Empowerment Self Defense, Rapid Defense Tactics, and Firearms Safety and Defensive Tactics. They’ll show you how to:

  • Identify and avoid potential threats,
  • Set and enforce your personal boundaries,
  • React quickly and effectively to attacks with knives or blunt objects,
  • Handle firearms safely and responsibly, and
  • Address myths about stopping an armed assailant.

You’ll also have a chance to meet other like-minded people who share your interest in self-defense. You’ll make new friends, have fun, and challenge yourself in a supportive and encouraging environment.

Don’t miss this chance to give your Dad the gift of safety and confidence. Register now and surprise him with this amazing experience. He’ll thank you for it!

Once the Mind-Set is changed, the skills can be quickly and effectively applied.

Whether you come in for self-care or to bond with friends or family, it will be a night you never forget.

Our goals are simple:

*Recreate the levels of stress you would experience during an attack of any kind,
**Do so in a controlled and safe environment, and

***Empower You to Live Freely!***

This is not a Martial Arts Program! It has a completely different focus and is geared toward the whole family! ASSERT Empowerment Self Defense Courses are centered on the development of the Mind-Set in order to employ the Skill-Set.

Register Early. Space is limited and pre-registration is required!
