Every day someone buys a chance to win the Powerball, hoping for the one in 292 million chance to win.
Somebody does eventually win.

Most people dont 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.

Chances of becoming a victim of a property crime in Minnesota is 1 in 47

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.

FSE has partnered with Conditioned Response to offer you not just "a class" but a group of classes which all  are connected
with each other and that everyone can benefit from.

These classes will help you become better prepared by simply starting to pay attention to the world around you.
You already do this in some manner every day, do you look before you cross the street?
Why do you look?
Next time you need to cross a busy street, close your eyes then cross.
No one would do this but yet most people walk blindly all the time, speeding cars and buses can be anywhere.

It's not being Paranoid
it's being Prepared and by just paying attention could help you avoid a situation that could result in a attack.

Chances of becoming a victim of a violent crime in Minnesota  is 1 in 412

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

These classes are valuable in teaching you how to be Safe with or without a firearm.
We offer many classes that don't involve firearms.

The trend for personal protection is geared towards firearms and Permit's to Carry.
For those who don't want to use a firearm or don't have an interest in a permit to carry, we have classes for you too.

Using a firearm as a defensive tool is an option, but comes with great responsibility.
