Non Shooting Courses

Lioness Defense offers personal protection courses in both shooting and non-shooting environments. 

Pepper Spray Protection

Having a plan is best accompanied by a way to defend yourself in the event avoidance is not an option. In the words of subject matter expert Chuck Haggard, “You’ve got to have something between a harsh word and a gun”. Many more defensive situations require a physical response rather than a deadly force response and having a less lethal tool like OC spray gives a self-defender an option other than empty-handed self-defense.

This class is designed to teach you how to effectively use pepper spray for self-defense. Pepper spray is a non-lethal self-defense tool that can be carried with you at all times and can provide a useful means of protection in a variety of situations. In this class, you will learn the proper technique for using pepper spray, as well as important safety considerations and legal guidelines. Our experienced instructors will guide you through hands-on training exercises, so you can feel confident in your ability to use pepper spray in a real-life situation.

Whether you’re a jogger, commuter, or simply someone who wants an extra layer of protection, our “Pepper Spray Protection” class is for you. So come join us and learn how to defend yourself with this powerful tool.
