In the moment of truth, the “lifeguards” of society simply won’t be there to protect us - whether from street crime or mass homicide. We are, in effect, on our own. Yet violence is never random. In fact, it’s a process as observable and predictable as boiling water – if you know what to look for…
This unique program focuses on the human element of personal security by teaching the skills and tradecraft once reserved exclusively for elite law enforcement, intelligence, and close protection professionals – societies lifeguards.

Simple, practical, and immediately empowering for anyone, of any background or ability level, this immersive program teaches how to recognize danger, manage confrontations, and neutralize an assailant, unarmed or utilizing improvised weapons.
