You Might Have Seen the News…

You’ve likely seen the recent escalation in home invasion incidents in the news. Stories of brave women using their wits and a weapon to protect their homes and loved ones are becoming alarmingly common. However, this may feel like a distant reality, far from your peaceful neighborhood, right?

Sadly, the rising tide of violent crime and intruders threatening innocent families, even in our local community, is becoming a concerning norm. In Renton, an elderly man was killed to steal his house. In Maple Valley, WA, a man had to defend his family in his home from armed attackers actively shooting at him.

Can’t you just call the police? The wait time for police assistance in Seattle averages 9 minutes, often stretching to over 14 minutes and even hours in some cases. And in dire cases like the Maple Valley man defending his home from multiple attackers, the police were over 30 minutes away. This is a chilling eternity when facing people wanting to harm or kill you or your family. Others have reported having to wait up to two hours. That is an eternity when someone is breaking in your door. And even when they do show up, they aren’t actually required by law to intervene and protect you.

This grim reality is exacerbated by recent budget cuts and staff exoduses in police departments. Problematic legislative changes passed in recent years have emboldened criminals. We’re witnessing a chilling rise in crime rates. According to the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs, murder rates have surged by 47%, manslaughter by 100%, and vehicle thefts are up by 88%. Alarmingly, violent crime in Seattle hit a 14-year high in 2021.

So, while you wait for law enforcement to arrive, how do you shield your home and the ones you cherish most? The first step lies in realizing that your safety is primarily in your hands. That’s where our Women-Only Home Defense Course comes in. This training program equips you with the knowledge and skills you need to safeguard yourself and your loved ones until help arrives.

What You’ll Gain

Designed exclusively for graduates of our Women-Only Basic Protection Course, this program will boost your self-confidence and situational awareness, empowering you to defend yourself and your family within your home.

It promises more than just theoretical knowledge. It provides a deeper understanding of when lethal force is legally justifiable and outlines the steps to follow in the legal aftermath of a home defense shooting.

 By joining us, you’ll unlock:

  • Enhanced self-assurance and perceptiveness of your surroundings
  • Proficient skills to protect yourself and your family within your home
  • Comprehension of the legal use of deadly force, including alternative strategies
  • Insight into the legal aftermath of a home defense encounter

Past students have found this class invaluable, uprooting preconceived scenarios and strategies and replacing them with effective, realistic alternatives. The course will challenge your assumptions and make you rethink your safety strategy.

Like with the Women-Only Basic Protection Course, you’ll develop competence that leads to confidence that you’re fully equipped to defend your home while remaining on the right side of the law.

 What You’ll Learn

The Women-Only Home Defense Course provides practical knowledge and techniques to defend your home, understand legal considerations, and design your home defense strategy.

We’re thrilled to welcome kick-ass criminal Defense Attorney Andrea Kim from ARK Law Defense. She will guide us through Washington State’s laws regarding deadly force, your rights, and how to navigate possible criminal and civil actions that might follow a defensive incident so that you can remain on the RIGHT side of the law.

This course also offers many suggestions to fortify and harden your home against intrusion and prepare for worst-case scenarios.

You’ll also receive the Adventure Protection Home Defense Checklist, allowing you to review best practices in hardening your home from the outside in and from least expensive to most expensive. You’ll identify weaknesses and improvements in your own home, some of which you can correct immediately and others for which you can begin budgeting.

This course uses dry-fire and laser device practice in the classroom. This allows us to safely demonstrate and practice more realistic scenarios that we may not want to conduct with a live firearm.

You’ll be much more comfortable with common defensive scenarios like:

    1. When you hear a bump in the night, how do you safely get to your children in the upstairs bedroom?
    2. How do you reach a significant other in the back of the house?
    3. How do you safely retreat to your safe room to await the police?

We’ll give you a number of drills and exercises you can use to practice in your own home and later with live fire on the range.

Upon graduation, you’ll be invited to our Ladies Day at the Range program, where you can practice your new skills with live ammunition where we’ll move from front-sight focus to target focus, and you’ll practice rapid-fire shooting under pressure, how to fire IMMEDIATELY in response to a new threat, how to shoot multiple targets FAST, and what impact distance has on accuracy and speed.

Many graduates have eagerly enrolled in this Home Defense Course immediately after finishing the Women-Only Basic Protection Class. This could be your next critical step if you’ve ever experienced a home invasion, discovered someone prowling in your backyard, or felt vulnerable when home alone with small children.

You’ll also learn:

  1. Psychology of situational awareness and self-defense
  2. Strategies for protecting yourself and your loved ones inside your home
  3. Considerations for selecting a home defense handgun and ammunition
  4. Numerous tips for situational awareness, avoiding conflict, and personal protection
  5. Ideas for products you can use to harden your home against intrusion
  6. Recommendations for landscaping adjustments to make it harder for intruders to hide and gain entry

You’ll walk out of this class with a detailed action plan and tons of newfound confidence in your ability to defend your home and loved ones.
