What We Offer


Want to feel more confident? Want to be safer? Dave Pike, owner and lead instructor of PDC, has developed two Self Defense Series (Simply Safer Self Defense and Just in Case Self Defense) that teach practical, proven and effective self defense techniques that are easy to learn and remember. You will learn how to be mentally, emotionally and physically prepared to perceive, avoid and defend against violent situations, all in a friendly and considerate atmosphere.

Our Self Defense classes are for men and women of all shapes, sizes, fitness levels and ages (16 +). Please Note: For any classes that involve physical defensive skills training, minors must be accompanied by a participating parent or guardian.

Please note: We do not teach martial arts.


Handgun Courses

We teach NRA Certified Courses which include basic pistol fundamentals as well as personal protection concepts.

Dave is a certified Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners (MCRGO) MI CPL Instructor. This course is designed specifically to meet the training requirements needed to apply for a Michigan CPL.

Dave has also developed his own firearm course called "Simply Safer Defensive Handgun."


Whether you are a small non-profit business and want some basic security training, or a large retail establishment with more complex security needs, we can help.

Our Business Safety and Security may may be just what you need.

Or we can rework it to fit your needs. Contact us for a free consultation about your personal defense/security needs.

Please Note that we are no longer offering PPCT classes. We apologize for the inconvenience.
