About Course

The Elegant Guardian Online Course is a transformative journey to empower you with essential self-defense skills and knowledge. It offers a comprehensive learning experience in personal safety and firearm proficiency. This course provides a supportive and empowering environment for all skill levels. While it mirrors many of the topics taught in our Women-Only Basic Protection and Home Defense Courses, it delves deeper into many topics that had to be cut from the in-person classes due to time constraints. Thus, it is helpful as a refresher for our course graduates and a novice just starting.

With this course, you can learn to Be Your Own Damn Hero in your space and at your pace.

The online course consists of weekly video lessons, guided and structured dry-fire exercises, monthly live-fire challenges, and more.

The AP Shooting Journal helps you set goals, monitor weekly and daily activities, and track your progress in your shooting journey.

You also have access to a powerful community of like-minded women who can help you learn and hold you accountable for your growth!

You’ll dive deep into safety, firearms, concealed carry, safe storage, firearms and children, situational awareness, firearm laws, and much more.

This course is more than just learning about self-defense; it’s about developing competence, learning awareness, and building a sense of empowerment. With competence comes confidence–and with both, you can Become Your Own Damn Hero.

The Guardian level of the Elegant Guardian Online Course is your foundational step towards mastering self-defense. It’s tailored to offer a solid introduction to personal safety and firearm proficiency, providing essential tools for those beginning their journey in self-protection.

One of the biggest benefits of the online course is the structured dry-fire. So often, we’ve heard women say they got home from class, and life got in the way, and they didn’t practice. Or even if they wanted to practice, they had no idea WHAT to practice.

Every week, you’ll have an assignment to help you with shooting-related skills, particularly with dry-fire exercises that you can practice at home to get really, really good very fast.

Here are some of the most important topics we’ll be covering in this course:

  • Finding your Why–What motivates you to learn to defend yourself and your loved ones?
  • Safety
  • Dry-fire practice
  • Grip & aiming
  • The proper platform for the greatest success
  • Trigger control
  • Semi-automatic pistols vs. Revolvers-which is best?
