Bristlecone offers a full range of indoor shooting and safety training classes, and one of our most popular is our Women’s Personal Safety Seminars. If you want to increase your confidence and situational awareness, then these non-firearms defensive tactics classes are for you! They are designed to meet women’s specific personal safety needs in the streets, the workplace, and at home.
In addition to teaching personal safety tactics, these seminars serve to empower women through knowledge of the emotional and psychological processes that take place during a confrontation. These classes cover awareness and avoidance of danger and confrontation, verbal de-escalation during a confrontation, fear management and proper mindset during a confrontation, and simple, intuitive hand-to-hand tactics to protect yourself when your safety is threatened.
