Private Training

Private Personal Protection and Self Defense Training

Everyone has a different reason for wanting or needing private training instead of class training but the most common reasons are:

  • Work is very demanding limiting available time
  • Learn better with 1 on 1 training versus group training
  • Traveling to a foreign country and need accelerated training
  • News reports of increased violent crime, gang activity, rapists, stalkers, etc.
  • Prepare daughters for college
  • High profile persons with increased potentials for attacks
  • Police, security and military persons for job related reasons

These are the most common types of requests or persons requesting private training however, needs vary.
