When we look at the television or listen to the radio we can hear dozens of news stories, where professionals who spend their day providing services in the community (realtors, insurance sales person, lawyers, case managers, counselors, psychologist, social workers, probation and parole officers, etc).  Have been forced to deliberately use physical force for protect themselves from physical harm. Crime seems to be all around us and it has the ability to touch our lives at any time. The FBI Uniform Crime Reports and United States Crime Clock suggest that a violent crime occurs every 25 seconds in the United States. According to the US department of justice a woman is raped every two minutes in America. Statistics suggest that one in every four women in the US are victims of rape or attempted rape. Hundreds of this women are professional working women that had set out to support themselves and their families and were suddenly confronted with violence.


It is because of the always looming potential of danger that lurks around us that Self-protection should be a subject that everyone should consider at some point in their lives. It is imperative that professional men and women dedicate some time every year to learning personal safety. The first step to learning personal safety is accepting the fact that we live in a dangerous and violent world. To think otherwise is naive and irresponsible. Given the violent world we live in, you actually have only two choices: to forget about it, cross your fingers and hope for the best; or to accept the responsibility of learning to protect yourself from the realities of violence that surround us. Professionals in our community we are ready to serve you. We can go to you or you can come to us. Call or email to schedule your next event. We are available with two week notice. Competitive group and individual rates available.
