  • The Law of Self Defense, 3rd Edition provides an in-depth and informative understanding of the five fundamental principles of self defense: Reasonableness, Innocence, Imminence, Avoidance, and Proportionality, as well as many non-core but important facets of self defense law, such as defense of others, defense of property, and imperfect self defense.In addition, the book provides a deep insight into how the judicial system really works, the motivations that drive prosecutions of self defense cases against otherwise law-abiding people, and presents legally-sound self defense strategies to help you both stay alive and not be perceived as easy prey by an overly aggressive or politically-motivated prosecutor.That's a lot of value for the price of a box of ammo--and let's face it, it's not all that easy these days to even find a box of ammo!

  • Entitles the student to a run through a self-defense simulator, followed by immediate legal debrief of the student's use-of-force decision making. All participating students also observe every other participant's run and debrief. ONLY 12 SEATS AVAILABLE!
  • Scheduling Security DepositBefore class dates will be secured for any host, the host is required to provide a $500 scheduling security deposit. This deposit is fully refunded on the day of the class. If, however, the class is cancelled for failure to hit any of the minimum number attendance goals as described below, Law of Self Defense reserves the right to retain this deposit.The reason for this deposit is to ensure that a prospective host does not ask us to lock in a revenue-generating weekend unless they have a reasonable expectation of meeting the attendance goals. It is our hope that every deposit will be refunded in full because the attendance goals have been met. That said, the host has a far better understanding of the hosts’ ability to attract students than does Law of Self Defense, and we do not wish to lock in one of our limited number of revenue-generating weekends if even the prospective host is uncertain that they can hit the attendance goals.Class Attendance GoalsThe host understands that the attendance goal for a LEVEL 1 Classes is 30 to 40 students, and that it is expected that the bulk of these students will be recruited based on the host’s efforts. At 30 days prior to the class the expectation is that there will be no fewer than 20 students registered, and at 60 days prior that there will be no fewer than 10 students registered. If attendance falls below these guidelines the class may be cancelled at the sole discretion of Law of Self Defense.
