Personalized Self-Defense Courses

We can customize our self-defense courses to meet the particular needs of your group (of 10 or more)—whether you’re single women, college-bound young adults, or a corporate team.

However, no matter how much we tailor our approach to match different students’ needs, the core principles we teach remain the same. When you take a class with Vital Vigilance, our self-defense instructor will show you how to:

  • Develop situational awareness
  • Respond to the three phases of an encounter
  • Identify vital points of attack
  • Make efficient blows and strikes
  • Formulate a plan and make split-second decisions
  • Remain focused and present
  • Manage your body’s natural fight-or-flight response
  • Internalize our techniques and stay safe

Our self-defense training program is broken down into two levels. Level 1 is a comprehensive introduction to these fundamentals of self-defense, while Level 2 reviews and reinforces them.

Once you master the 20 life-saving techniques that our personal self-defense trainer will teach you, you’ll be armed with a plan to fend off anyone who seeks to do you harm.

Active Shooter Response Training

An active shooter situation is everyone’s nightmare. Being prepared with a strategy for hiding, escaping, or fighting will ease your anxiety and increase your chances of survival should the unthinkable happen.

Taking a course in Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events, a.k.a. CRASE, will teach you everything you need to know. At Vital Vigilance, we provide thorough CRASE training to groups and company staff to help you make it through this chaotic, life-threatening scenario.

Although our active shooter response training is a must for any individual, it’s ideal for office staff, retail employees, school teachers and administrators, and church leadership. Since our active shooter training course is mobile, we can come out to your Annapolis-area facility to help you:

  • Identify security weaknesses
  • Plan escape routes
  • Identify safe hiding spots
  • Find objects that can become improvised weapons
  • Learn how to hit and/or disarm an assailant
  • Practice our hands-on techniques through repetition

With insightful, interactive demonstrations from our CRASE training instructor, you’ll have a powerful line of defense against any active shooter. The skills you’ll learn during our active shooter defense training program are invaluable.
