Most people don't think to much about the possibility they may be involved in some violent attack.
Most go about their daily lives without concern, after all it's Minnesota, "Minnesota Nice" unfortunately they all aren't nice.

We all have some sense of the everyday dangers at home, at work or other places.
We tend to drop our guard when we get away from those known dangers, it's the unknown or the lack of awareness
to these threats that should be of concern.

A violent crime and happen anywhere and at anytime.

FSE  offers you not just "a class" but a group of personal safety training classes which all  are connected with each other and that everyone can benefit from.

These Training Classes will help you become better prepared by simply starting to pay attention by heightening your awareness levels to the world around you.

Why do you look?

Just paying attention could help you avoid a situation that may result in a attack.

Some situations may be unavoidable,
this is where some knowledge or skills may help you escape or prevail in the chance of an attack.
