Our philosophy is that the area of personal protection is much more complex than only an "armed citizen", a vault for your social security number or a home alarm system. It involves more than a lethal or non-lethal response capability, but also how to protect your home, identity, family and your well being at a number of threat levels. How to be aware and take action in advance to avoid risk, rather than to be unaware and only able react to it! Personal protection is more complex than is perceived by most individuals. It is about much more than the mere use of a defensive device! We live in a world where others who have no issue with doing harm to your loved ones and you.

We have been serving our clients since 2006. We are celebrating our 15th year of professional instructional services in 2021.
