The Foremost Self-Defense School in the Northwest for Firearms Training and other Defensive Techniques for Civilian, Police and Security Professionals. 

An increasing number of people today are becoming aware that they must take more personal responsibility for their own safety. "No one can ever be absolutely certain of what his or her actions will be when confronted by a critically dangerous situation. The only way to be reasonably sure of one's actions in a crisis is to impress a patterned response of the correct actions into one's behavior and make this part of a natural, automatic response when the real crisis occurs."*

At SAFE we combine education (knowledge) with training (programmed response) to develop greater ability and confidence in the use of firearms as well as other defensive tools and techniques.
