NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!!!  PERFECT for ladies who want to feel confident. By popular demand! Plenty of time to plan!!!

Now, 2 additional weeks and 1/2 hour longer each evening!  The 8-Week “Women-Be-Alert” program is designed for women who want ongoing training to develop the skills they learned in the single-day Women Be Alert defense program to help prevent them from becoming a victim in our quickly-changing world.

This exciting Course is 8 weeks in length.  We utilize the "Competency by Repetition" principle of training.  This training will be in the classroom and will cover basic methods and technique to prevent you from becoming a victim.  Basic, simple-to-learn-repeatable, and duplicatable techniques are just what women want.  Learn from a male attacker's point of view.  Find out what works and how effective it can be.
