Threat recognition is the foundation for employing effective self-defense measures to ensure your personal safety.


What does this initially entail?


In a word, awareness. Situational awareness is the bedrock of self-defense.


Without it, you stand little to no chance of proactively or reactively protecting yourself from danger, whether actual or potential.


Our instructor provides you with realistic training scenarios to provide you with the skill set and self-awareness training you will need to be prepared psychosocially if you need to react to a potential attacker. "BE A HARD TARGET"





Life can change in a split second.






Learn what you need to know about knife defense.


Discover proven techniques and tactics to optimize your chances of surviving a violent knife fight.


Acquire knowledge on your different options when faced against someone looking to stab you. 



Instructed only to security officers for Self-Protection & Self-Defense


Knife attacks are brutal, there is no other way to put it nicely.


You need to learn to defend yourself against knife attacks before you actually get into such a dangerous situation.


Now, we're not saying it will ever happen, and we certainly don't wish this to anybody, but the reality is that anyone can be faced with a knife wielding attacker.


You could be walking peacefully on the street, and the next thing you know, you're faced with a drugged-up individual wielding a knife at you.


In this class you will learn trapping and disarming a knife attacker and fighting back.


We believe knife defense is one of the most important parts of self-defense.

It's a topic everyone should learn about at least once in their life.

An Active Shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area; in most cases, active shooters use firearms and there is not pattern or method to their selection of victims. 


Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly.  Typically, the immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to stop the shooting and mitigate harm to victims. 


Because active shooter situations are often over within 10 to 15 minutes, before law enforcement arrives on the scene, individuals must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with an active shooter situation.


The Active Shooter Response Training Course for security officers will help provide you with the tools to help you in the event you find yourself in this type of scenario. 


You will be taught how to prepare yourself to use your security mindset, and fight through your fear with a survival mindset so you can evaluate your situation and react appropriately.


We also can provide your business with a training program that suites your training needs and working environment. Contact us to set up a time to discuss your business training needs.  




What is happening to Society


This is strictly a personal view and possible suggestions of what could be done by local government within the Province of British Columbia regarding the Rrivate Security Industry and the personal safety of Security Officers in British Columbia. 

There is no denying something has to be done and it's gone on long enough and no changes have been made for on going training and development of Security Officers in British Columbia. 

The job alone is no longer appealing due to the high risk of danger involved. From potentially being sprayed with bear spray, or being stabbed with a needle or knife. 

Security Officers are stabbed in British Columbia by loiterers, shoplifters, or just an act of random violence. 

Nothing is being done by many of the Security companies, no critical incident stress training, some no stab vests are supplied for the Security Officer and no on going training for edge weapon training. Why is this ? 

Security Programs Division in Victoria needs government approval to implement changes and the Justice Institute of British Columbia also to implement new courses and training for Security Officers. Why is our local government not responding to the changing times and assaults and stabbings to security officers in British Columbia and providing them with more tools for there duty belt. 

Restraints are almost obsolete but yet security officers spend over $1000 dollars to be certified to carry and use handcuffs and are told by there employer they are not allowed to use them ???? But yet the security license stated they are allowed to legally carry them??? 

How can they protect themselves if the training they take to become certified is taken away by there employer and turn places them at greater risk of personal injury??? 

The British Columbia Government needs to step in and make some serious changes to the Security Industry in the Province of British Columbia to protect the public and security officers that risk there lives to protect the public, property and assets. 

Don't wait until it is too late and a security officer dies in British Columbia because they didn't have the tools necessary to save there life. You don't always have the option to disengage, so you need the training and tools to protect yourself and the life of another. 

On going training is the solution! Question is when is it going to be implemented and when is the Private Security Industry going to take the initiative to provide the necessary training and support and equipment for security officers to be able to go to work safely.
