Once again, my lovely Lady Warriors kicked butt! LWW1 is all about getting confident with our pistols. We practice solid safety skills while manipulating our gun with ease. We learn to draw from the holster, engage multiple targets, shoot one-handed while deploying our flashlights to identify a threat in low-light/no light situations, and learn unarmed self-defense skills with CKM Krav Maga techniques when we don't have ready access to our firearms.
If you've got a Modern Sporting Rifle and want to learn how to run that gun for home defense, check out our Defensive Rifle classes!
May 20 - 22, 2022
These Lady Warriors were a force to be reckoned with! Unfortunately, for the first time at any LWW event, we were sidelined on our night shoot due to thunderstorms. But it was all good! These ladies can return for a future LWW1 event and take part in the night shoot they missed out on.
Why be a lady when you can be a Lady Warrior? What are YOU waiting for??

These kids did an amazing job and always kept safety first! They learned to appreciate the shooting sports by engaging in pistol and rifle gun handling and live-fire events. They also had the chance to experience archery and the challenge of getting their arrows on target.
Finally, they dipped their toes into the world of unarmed self-defense using techniques originating from Krav Maga. Wonderful kids and future leaders!
July 8 - 10, 2022
These ladies rocked Lady Warrior 1 and returned for Lady Warrior Weekend 2 where they got their hands on pistols, rifles, and shotguns!
They learned to shoot from behind cover, how to navigate corners and hallways, engaged multiple shoot/no shoot targets, learned weapon disarming techniques and strategies to fight back against vehicle-involved attacks!

Bachelor Party at the Shooting Range
Another group of Bachelor's spending the day at the shooting range. So much better than a round of golf or getting wasted in Vegas.
This was a high energy experience that far exceeded my expectations. The instructor's passion for teaching this course could not have been more evident, and her willingness to help each individual in the class excel was amazing.
I couldn't imagine a more comfortable and educational environment with knowledgeable staff who are patient and understanding. Judi, Scott, and their team members are fully committed to safety and properly educating each student. I strongly recommend On Guard Defense training for any one of any age who are interested in protecting themselves and their family.
Professional, informative, productive and very enjoyable sessions were provided by Judi Phelps. So glad our group found her.
