Women Personal Safety Seminars

We are undoubtedly living in very tense times here in the US. Violence is on the rise, and attacks against women are becoming more brazen by the hour. The Justice Dept stats show that 1 in 3 women will be a victim of an assault in their lifetime. It also states that 1 in 5 will be a victim of rape and over 70% of attacks will take place without a weapon present!


For over 25 years, we have traveled the DMV area teaching women, from all walks of life, how to effectively protect themselves and their loved ones.
Master Scott has made it a mission to share not only his 43 years of street survival training but also the knowledge and insight he received directly from the predators while working as a Correctional Officer for 14 ½ years.

Note: As seen on Channel 9 News, this is not your typical kick and punch workshop. Master Scott has carefully crafted an empowering martial arts program that focuses on:

  • Awareness and Avoidance skills
  • What the predator looks for/ How to avoid fitting the victim profile
  • Powerful memory drills to help you recall EVERYTHING about your would-be attacker
  • How to turn FEAR into FURY – using Fight/Flight to your advantage
  • Split Second Stun & Run Techniques
  • Home/Vehicle/Shopping safety

and much more.

Here’s what we can promise you, after one session, your staff, colleagues or organization as a whole will be totally empowered and inspired to take their personal safety seriously. They will have a specific skill set at their disposal that will allow them to, Detect, Avoid and or Defend themselves.

Don’t wait until violence knocks on a staff member’s door. Take the necessary steps NOW so they can learn how to effectively protect themselves and their loved ones.

We offer seminars / workshops at your location or ours.

Law Enforcement – Security – Protection Specialist

“It’s not if you’ll need it, but when you’ll need it!”

For 26 years, Master Scott and his amazing team have been on the frontlines teaching law enforcement and security personnel how to effectively gain control of an unruly suspect without the use of excessive force.

As a former 14 ½ year Correctional Officer (Emergency Response Team Member) and Executive Protection Specialist, Master Scott knows firsthand how easy it is to end up in court facing excessive force charges.

His respect for the law enforcement community has set him on a mission to train as many officers as possible in his liability conscious Compliance & Control Tactics. His goal is to help re-establish public trust with law enforcement officers by providing non-lethal force training as a buffer or alternative to excessive force.

For over two decades, he has trained a number of police and military special ops personnel to include: PG dept of Corrections, DC Police (Howard University), FBI members of the SSG Team, Panama Police Trainers, Escort Team and Special Ops Unit.

He recently completed a 3-year contract in Abu Dhabi where he and his team trained just about every dept on their 34k police force.

His self-defense program is taught in a judgement free, safe, and empowering environment…NO EGO.

Training is offered in the following areas:

  • Compliance/Control Tactics
  • Finger Pressure Take-downs
  • Pressure Point Tactics (Basic and Advanced)
  • Edged Weapon Defense
  • Ground Defense
  • Gun Disarm

We offer programs that are one-hour intro sessions up to 6-week training intensives.
Invest one hour to see how Master Scott’s program can drastically improve your officer’s ability to control an unruly attacker without the use of excessive force.

This is undoubtedly one of Master Scott’s favorite topics. Having lost his mother at the young age of 68, he has set out on an unstoppable mission to teach men and women how to drastically reduce their stress levels in record time!

He has traveled and trained in China where he witnessed, firsthand, the benefits of PUTTING YOURSELF FIRST. By that, he means taking good care of your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health before you take care of others.

He observed and interacted with people who were 80 to 95 years old, and was totally amazed at their strength, agility, flexibility, and keen faculties. This inspired him to take his life-enhancing program to the masses.

Knowing that 70-80% of doctor visits are STRESS RELATED, he has carefully designed what he calls his Breathing For Life-STRESS BUSTER Program. In as little as 5 minutes, he’ll show you his secret of how to totally relax your body from head to toe.
