About Us

This site was created to provide you with a learning point on a subject that you will not get at school, at home or on the streets.

These are lessons learned by people who chose to put their lives on the line in defense of our society and way of life. These are people like Law Enforcement Officers, Military Special Operations Personnel and Spies.

The lessons learned were the things that allowed these people to operate in dangerous environments, around and against dangerous people, in difficult circumstances and complete critical missions and return home safe when the mission was done.

What you will learn are awareness skills that will enable you to go about your life with a level of confidence, knowing that you have prepared your mind and body for this sometimes dangerous world we live in.

You will develop the ability to use the God given skills and abilities, enhanced with practice and training to move in the world, knowing more than the potential adversaries that you might otherwise encounter.

The goal is to make you smarter, able to anticipate and avoid dangerous or threatening environments and most importantly be able to go and do what you choose without encountering the unexpected. And when you do encounter something you will have options and tools to work with to get you through the unknowns.

Recent data has illustrated that most people do not currently feel safe, even in the best environments like we have in America. What is more, most people are fearful of travel, both domestically and internationally.

That fear can be replaced with awareness skills that mitigate and eliminate most if not all of the uncertainties.
