You are the First Responder


We Will Teach You How.


We have developed a program primarily designed to impact individual, corporate and campus safety procedures while recognizing the need for realistic training and solutions. These programs consider that many traditional “fixes” may be cost-prohibitive, impractical, politically unpalatable or simply ineffective. 

The Active Killer Defense Class is designed to equip and offer hands on training for persons with little or no experience in these types of situations. The techniques learned in the class are simple, effective, and easy to remember.

I found the Active Killer Defense Class to be eye opening on how a high percentage of civilians react poorly to situations such as an Active Shooter. AKD taught effective and valuable techniques for an individual, or a group of people to react in a way that enables the stacking of odds in favor of survival. AKD’s knowledge, and active shooter defense strategies are sound and proven. I will definitely be pushing those I care about to attend one of these seminars

The idea of an active shooter is terrifying, sad, horrific, and unimaginable to most.  However, the threat is real. Our previous school classroom procedures of how to handle an active shooter, always left me distraught… severely flawed and only produced one possible end result; tragedy. If I was a parent, I would want every school staff member who interacts with my child to be trained and have the confidence to handle an active shooter situation. More and more schools have started to invite AKD staff to train their teachers, answer questions and discuss the reality of what really happens when an active shooter walks onto school grounds.  The seminar itself is very moving.  Teachers know more than anyone the weight of being trusted with someone’s child; whether kindergarten or a senior, and all of our simulations drive that point even closer to home.
