Our motto at Safer Faster Defense is:
“Protect the Ones You Love.”
The ability to protect the ones I love has always been of the utmost importance. This principle has driven me to pursue this career path. I want to be sure that if the unfortunate need arises I would, to the best of my ability, shelter my loved ones from harm. The desire to share the knowledge and skillset that I have developed is what drove me to start my own company. I want to empower other people to be responsible for their own safety and the safety of their loved ones.
When it comes to my wife and family I know I would do anything in my power to protect them from harm, regardless of the consequences to myself. Living a good life and avoiding trouble is only half the battle. Sometimes bad things happen to good people for no reason at all, other than being in the wrong place at the wrong time, attracting the attention of the wrong people.
I believe that any loving husband, wife, parent, son and daughter feels exactly the same way, it is not only a moral and ethical imperative born out of love, but an instinctive survival mechanism. It is imbued in our genes and, in the long run, promotes the survival of the species.
“I do believe that where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence I would advise violence. Thus when my eldest son asked me what he should have done, had he been present when I was almost fatally assaulted in 1908, whether he should have run away and seen me killed or whether he should have used his physical force which he could and wanted to use, and defended me, I told him that it was his duty to defend me even by using violence.” (M.K. Gandhi, “The Doctrine of the Sword”- 1920)
If you are willing to protect your family, wouldn’t you stand a better chance of success if you learned the necessary skills and mindset?
If your answer is yes, consider the uncomfortable truth that we cannot count on always being there when they may need us. It stands to reason, then, to be pro-active and empower them with the knowledge to recognize and avoid danger and the skillset to physically defend themselves if everything else fails.
- Do you have a plan for a house fire or a home invasion?
- Do you have a plan for a car accident or a carjacking?
- Did you discuss these plans with the whole family in age appropriate language?
- Did you talk to your daughter about date rape?
- Did you talk to your son about how peer pressure, pride or alcohol affect judgments?
- If you are waiting for the right time to do it…the right time was yesterday!
Let’s work together to make your family safer, faster!

Fundamentals of Personal Protection – Unarmed
This course is based on the Counter Ambush Training methodology (C.A.T.) and the Personal Defense Readiness Program (P.D.R.) .
C.A.T. has been the culmination of over 20 years of research and studies done by Rob Pincus and the I.C.E Training Company encompassing physics, physiology, anatomy, decision-making, psychology, neuroscience, kinesiology, adult learning, physical fitness, unarmed personal defense, personal defense with a firearm, and much more to deliver a training program that will ensure you are fully prepared for a dynamic critical incident for all levels of personal defense: from civilian to Military, Law Enforcement or Security professionals.
From the P.D.R. website: “…Personal Defense Readiness is based on the S.P.E.A.R. System™…They are the first training programs for personal protection that fully integrates the body’s reflexive responses and instinctive survival mechanisms making them the easiest, most natural way to learn to protect yourself. These programs also includes unique and patent learning models but most importantly, they have pioneered research on how to manage and overcome fear.
Strategically & tactically speaking, these programs are based on how real confrontations actually occur and the curricula are based on a ’3-Dimensional’ theory that creates confidence on emotional, psychological and physical levels.
Our Teaching Doctrine
We only teach realistic self-defense skills that are street applicable. Students are exposed to aggressive as well as defensive role playing to simulate encounters and to prepare them to react ethically as well as decisively to real-life aggression. Our curriculum covers verbal defusing tactics, choice speech principles and a host of other behaviorally researched strategies…”
Fundamentals of Personal Protection– Women Curriculum
This course is designed to meet women’s specific needs regarding personal safety and self-defense in the streets, at work or at home. Our goal is to empower women through knowledge and understanding of what goes on emotionally and psychologically during a confrontation. We focus on awareness, avoidance, verbal de-escalation, fear management, mindset, and simple, intuitive tactics.
Life is a series of choices that define us…Choose to take control of your safety; choose to be a resource and an example for other women in your life; choose to prepare and prevail!
Fundamentals of Personal Protection – Pepper Spray, Taser.
This course teaches you about non lethal defensive tools like Pepper Spray, Stun Guns and Takers, their pros and cons and how to deploy and operate them.
Fundamentals of Personal Protection – Safer Faster Knife Defense
The knife is an extremely efficient defensive tool that you can legally carry almost anywhere. You may also be able to access one in your home, or elsewhere (like a bar, store, etc.) in a time of need. Not to mention that the more you learn to use a knife the more you learn to defense against one. Our Defensive Knife curriculum was developed to provide a simple and intuitive training program that will quickly make the student more efficient in deploying and using a knife in a modern defensive context.
Our program does not focus on tactics alone but aims to develop the proper mindset to empower the student to manage fear and apply the skills learned in the event of a lethal threat.
Our firearms courses are based on the Dynamic Focus Shooting program, which is an intuitive shooting program designed to help the student become a more efficient shooter in the context of a dynamic critical incident.
- Intuitive, from a physiological perspective, is something that works well with what the body does naturally.
- Efficiency allows us to achieve our goal with the least amount of time, energy, and effort. Note that efficiency includes effectiveness (achieving our goal) in its definition.
- A dynamic critical incident is any surprising (you didn’t know it was going to happen), chaotic (you don’t know what’s going to happen next) event that presents you with a lethal threat that you deem necessary to respond to with a firearm.
Fundamentals of Home Defense – Handgun
The Fundamentals of Home Defense Course is designed to educate the student about the handguns that are best for personal defense and how to use them efficiently in the context of a home defense scenario.
Fundamentals of Concealed Carry.
The Fundamentals of Concealed Carry course is designed to educate the student about the handguns that are best for concealed carry, how to carry them safely and securely, and how to use them efficiently in the context of a Dynamic Critical Incident.
Defensive Shooting Training – Handgun – Carbine – Shotgun.
The goal of the Dynamic Focus® Shooting program is to prepare the students for the worst possible defensive scenario they may encounter: the ambush. When, as they are going about their life, they are taken by surprise by someone who decides to prey on them and try to seriously hurt or kill them. This is the context most law abiding citizen may find themselves in, as predators try to stack the cards on their favor by using the element of surprise. The Dynamic Focus® Shooting Program is an Intuitive shooting program designed to help the student be more efficient with a defensive firearm in the context of a Dynamic Critical Incident, a surprising, chaotic and threatening event.
