Imagine you and your loved one enjoying a great movie and suddenly during the funniest part, with everyone laughing loudly, gunfire erupts throughout the theater. People start falling over as they try to run, some are crying in pain, and some will never get up again.  

You start to think “how could this happen to US”!!! You are scared and think: will WE be shot next, if WE run we may get hit…? WHAT would you Do? Or more importantly WHAT could you have DONE to prevent getting in this situation?           

Our 5 hour session on Situational Awareness (SA) will teach you about your options for “What You Should” in these and other situations as well as protecting yourself to not be THE VICTIM!!!!

SA educates and empowers everyday people, young and old, to responsibly evade and protect themselves and their loved ones with simple approaches and defensive techniques. We will go through numerous scenarios so you may easily grasp concepts for a multitude of situations.

This is excellent supplemental training for CCW holders.

You’ll gain knowledge relative to:

  • Internal Soft Skills
  • Criminal Thinking
  • Evasion Techniques
  • Various Situation Scenarios & Exercises
  • Defense Craft/Techniques                                                                                                 

This is a Co-Ed event open to anyone: adults of any gender or age; college students; high school students with parental approval.


This session is taught by Mike Beard, a Vietnam Veteran who served 2 tours. In addition, Mike, along with his family, lived and worked in various countries in South East Asia for  over 15 years and has traveled extensively through the Middle East and Europe.
