Rape, Murder, Assaults, Terrorism, Active Shooters. Threats are everywhere you go. And while violence might not be a common occurrence at your workplace, home or school, preparation is the best strategy for mitigating potentially life-threating scenarios if they do occur. Through training, you can observe and avoid danger before it finds you.

How will you react to a life-threatening situation? How will your family react? How can you avoid it in the first place? Do you have a plan? What are your options? No matter who you are or where you’re from, it’s essential to have an answer to questions like these before a dangerous event takes place. If you’re looking for preparedness solutions, Keystone Shooting Center can help.

Our situational comprehension training program will aid you in developing strategies for yourself, your family and your place of employment. By the end of the course, you’ll have the basic knowledge and skills necessary to defend yourself and those around you in a variety of high-stress situations.

What Is a Dangerous Situation Training Course?

Have you and your family discussed any basic, easily learned and practiced defensive tactics?

Have you thought about what you should do in an active shooter situation? Have you discussed it with your family? Do you have a plan for your place of employment?

Many people worry about finding themselves in a dangerous situation, such as an active shooter scenario, robbery or attempted rape. But few people put a plan in place to keep themselves and their families safe if these situations were to occur. That’s why we’ve developed our situational comprehension training class.

Our three- to four-hour workshop prepares people of all ages with knowledge and skills that can help you mitigate those life-threatening moments. Our teachers are experts in the art of situational awareness – being aware of one’s surroundings to identify dangerous situations – and will help you develop your skills so that you can reduce the chance of danger if you don’t have an available weapon.

From learning to de-escalate violence and prevent attacks to developing basic self-defense skills, this course equips you with the tools needed to recognize, avoid and respond to a variety of dangerous scenarios.

Learning Outcomes of Our Life-Threatening Situation Training Class

Our dangerous situation training course prepares students of any age to become more aware of their environment and defend themselves at home, on the street or in the workplace. During this program, you’ll learn to:

  • Become more aware of your surroundings: Danger can approach you as you walk down the sidewalk or sit in a classroom. Are you prepared to recognize the signs? We’ll teach you situational awareness skills to help you identify and avoid a hazardous situation before it begins.
  • Develop a positive mindset: When faced with a life-threatening event, “fight, flight or freeze” instincts can kick in and render many people incapable of proper action. Our experts will guide you with the skills needed to reason when emotions are running high.
  • Understand various self-defense laws: Do you understand the laws governing self-defense? To protect yourself and those around you without fear of legal repercussions, reviewing federal and state rules surrounding self-defense is critical.
  • Defend yourself in dangerous situations: What would you do if you were held up at the ATM? How would you protect your loved ones in the event of a mass shooting? Our course prepares you to defend yourself using basic self-defense tools and active shooter strategies.
