PDC specializes in improving our clients’ personal defense through education and training.  We work with criminal justice agencies as well as community groups and individuals.  Our goal is to create an ongoing training relationship with all of our clients in order to enhance personal defense and reduce the number of victims in our communities.

Real personal defense requires a critical connection between emotion, mind and physical skill.  PDC connects these personal attributes to increase your confidence and ability to prepare for, perceive, and act to avoid danger or defend yourself (or others) when confronted with real personal violence.
