The assortment of self-defense classes at Bear Arms is truly one-of-a-kind. No two classes are ever the same! You have the option of taking the same course once, or several times over to really perfect your skills and mindset. Or you can bounce around between courses and focus on numerous defensive tactics that interest you.

We continuously design our self-defense classes based on customer feedback and demand. These courses include hands-on training in topics such as:

  • Flashlights
  • Pepperspray
  • Combatives
  • Wrist grabs
  • Pressure points
  • Weapons retention
  • Joint manipulation
  • Modes of awareness
  • Escalating use of force
  • Alternative defense options
  • Knives, focusing on the karambit
