“Personal Response Options & Tactically Effective Counter Techniques” is divided into two separate sections dealing with two distinct issues.

Section One: “(PRO) Personal Response Options”, addresses preventive strategies, mental preparedness & awareness. Topics in this section deal with issues directly related to preventing criminal actions from occurring, including; Intro to self defense, Vehicle Safety, Home Safety, Personal Safety, Sexual Harassment, Weapons, Survival Attitude, Rape and Related Criminal Justice Theories, and Domestic Violence.

Section Two: “(TECT) Tactically Effective Counter Techniques”, addresses Physical techniques that can be used when prevention strategies are not used, or are ineffective or fail in deterring a criminal act.


Women’s personal defense systems must include both mental knowledge and physical training.
