About the event

Do you worry about being able to defend yourself and your loved ones? How much different would your world be if you had been taught how to trust your instincts, identify and avoid threats, de-escalate, assert boundaries, and physically defend yourself? You are worth defending. The women and girls you know and love are worth defending. Women do not ask for, cause, invite, or deserve to be assaulted. Self Protection training “...can increase your options and help you prepare responses to slow down, de-escalate, or interrupt an attack. Like any tool, the more you know about it, the more informed you are, the better able you are to make a decision and to use it.” - National Coalition Against Sexual Assault

The Women’s Training Institute at A+R Tactics, WTI, is woman-led and teaches real world self protection that is evidence-based and trauma informed. This training will answer the questions you have about your personal safety, instill confidence, teach you effective physical skills, and revolutionize your decision making abilities and mindset. The physical skills WTI teaches are based on simple principles and instinctive movements. WTI’s reality based system is designed to teach tested self protection in an easy to digest and apply manner. We will also train the emotional, and intellectual aspects of self protection, including your ability to recognize and manage fear. When violence is eminent, your ability to defend yourself is greatly affected by your ability to control your emotions. WTI teaches you to function during the stress and psychological trauma of a violent encounter. Our training progression is designed to develop mental toughness and emotional resolve and help you gain power over your own fight or flight response. WTI will not tell you what you should or shouldn’t do, but help you develop options, techniques and a way of analyzing situations and applying strategies and actions that best suit you. You will leave it prepared and with a plan for likely situations of harassment, threats, stalking, sexual or violent abuse from strangers, and more often, from someone you know.

This course will be a rotating curriculum focusing on:

  • Awareness
  • Threat mitigation, profiling, & response
  • Deescalation & Preemption
  • Defense against common strikes, chokes, takedowns and grabs
  • Defense against weapons
  • Escapes from pins against a barrier and on the ground
  • Effective Striking
  • Controlling a subject
  • Home and travel safety
  • Mitigating Fear, Mindset, and Resilience
  • Trauma Shedding
  • Civilian Trauma Response Training
  • Interaction with Law Enforcement, EMS, and Accurate Reporting
  • CQB for home defense
  • Shooting on the move
  • Defensive use of a firearm in close quarters
  • Shoot / No Shoot Scenario Training in the Shoot House

What to bring:

  • Comfortable clothing - we recommend no tank tops or short shorts, but shirts that are sleeved, and bottoms that extend past the knee as we will be working on the mats, against the rough walls in the shoot house, and various surfaces
  • Tennis shoes
  • Mat shoes, if you would like, as shoes can’t be worn on the mats (going barefoot on the mats or wearing socks is fine as well)
  • Water and any snacks you would like
  • Any blade trainers that you use or would like to work with
  • You are welcome to bring your own holster if it is Glock 17 compatible

* If you do not wish to train with a training firearm, you do not have to.  You can train the unarmed self protection training and also have your scenario training in the shoot house consist of scenarios and opportunities to use empty handed, or unarmed defense.  You do not have to train with a training firearm.
