LIVE LEVEL 1 CLASSES – Don’t Delay: Get Your “Legal Body Armor” Today!

(Click here for information on LEVEL 2 Classes) Build A Legally-Sound Self-Defense Strategy Customized for YOU The value presented by the Law of Self Defense LEVEL 1 Class is considerable. Over the course of ~6 hours, and at a fraction of the cost of consulting one-on-one with a lawyer, you will learn how to build a legally-sound self-defense strategy that will:

  • Minimize your vulnerability to prosecution and civil suit.
  • Prepare you to win BOTH the physical AND the legal battles.
  • Account for not just the letter of the law but also how it’s actually applied actual courts and prosecutors to actual people.
  • Recognize what a prosecutor MUST prove in order to defeat your self-defense claim.
  • “Armor yourself” against the most common legal vulnerabilities.
  • Bolster your claim when defending others, and account for the strict limits on defending property.
  • Learn what “Stand-Your-Ground,” the “Castle Doctrine,” “Presumptions of Reasonableness” and “Self-defense Immunity” REALLY mean . . . and what they DO NOT mean.
  • Say the right thing to 911, the first responders, and the investigative officers (pro-tip: each interaction is VERY different).
