Self defense is a right not a privilege. How you choose to answer the challenge will determine if you are among the survivors or a nameless, faceless victim of an attack. In any random act of violence there are no rules, only deadly consequences. You have to be prepared to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes to get the job done. We teach no holds barred straight from the hip tactics and strategy of the physical and emotional knowledge necessary to help escape with your life-and-freedom intact.
Our goal is to provide you with a world class formula for self defense. We are a no nonsense organization dedicated to teaching realistic self defense giving you the knowledge you need to live your life with awareness and confidence.
Progressive Self Defense Systems (PSDS) is simulation training that prepares anyone for any future confrontation through experiential learning.

Force on Force Scenario Based Handgun TrainingI was fortunate to observe this entire training cycle, as my son ran through it. John and his staff put on the most realistic gun on: gun, knife and, yes, gas can/lighter wielding stalker, scenarios, using Simunition, one could imagine. John talks with the student at length about the student's home layout and family members in the home to tailor threats that are most likely to occur to the individual student. Throughout the course John and his staff create realistic stressors that each student may encounter in their daily routine. Each scenario is critiqued in detail with input from John, role players and the student. No question goes unanswered. John shows his student techniques that are a must to survive the scenarios, that the average Joe may never think about. Gun, and, non-lethal weapon placement in the studen's home as well as each family members job during an attack is discussed in detail. Safety procedures during the course are demanded of the student and staff. If you think you got it all figured out and are a master at the shooting range sign up for this course. I guarantee you will learn something new ,and; get a good look at how you handle yourself and your weapon when those targets are charging, and shooting at you; while you try to get out of bed and return fire in the dark. Thanks John, Leigh, Fernando and Romoulo for putting on one great course! By the way. I'd be remiss if I didn't say how proud I was of my son. Took one leg shot and put 2 or 3 centermass in each attacker. Good job son.
