January 12, 2013 Hand Gun Home Defense and Personal Protection Course: Ladies Only Event!!

When I told other martial artist that I wanted to teach a civilian self-defense course that was firearms based they laughed.  Now that the course, GunFitX, is out of the box it is being sought out by people around the area to include invitations to teach at other martial arts studios.  One of the request that we had many of is for a “Women Only” class session.

Ladies, this is your chance to be empowered by superior firepower.  Your husbands will be impressed, and a little jelous, that you chose to learn the GunFitX system.  All the while your girlfriend will think you are Wonder Woman.  Imagine feeling safer in your home when you are alone as the adult guardian of your children.  Relish the fact that you won’t have to be fearful of walking to your car at night.  You will be at peace knowing that you can make the right decision, decisions that can save lives, when needed.

Be sure to bring a friend so that you can learn together these valuable life saving self-defense skills.

Gun Fit X

When you need it it feels great in your hands.

Peanut Butter and Jelly and Christmas Gift Drive

Christmas Gifts

This Christmas we will be doing a peanut butter and jelly drive as well as that of gifts for those in need during the holiday season.  We have all been blessed at one time or another and this is our opportunity to share some of those blessing with others as we give.

When you come in and see the Christmas Tree please consider bringing an item that can be placed under it to assist those of our community that are in need.  Be mindful of children of all ages.  For example, teenage girls might be thrilled to get some makeup or other such items.

As we do this I am certain that our own spirits will abound as we participate in bringing “Holiday Cheer” to others.
