Home+Family Defense Skills

The MDTS Home and Family Defense Skills course provides the home defender with immediately accessible knowledge, skills, and information to properly prepare an effective home defense. Understanding the mindset you need to have, the mindset of potential assailants and common home vulnerabilities is key to an effective home defense. Dry fire drilling of tactics, force-on-force drills and scenarios in light and low light provides attendees with realistic feedback and validation of the skills taught. There is NO LIVE FIRE in this course and it is strongly suggested that you attend this course with a spouse, partner or other family member since they will likely be the only “Help” you will have until authorities can respond.

Course topics include but are not limited to:
Home Defense Mindset & Family Preparation
Mindset of Home Invaders vs. Burglar
Layering Security Measures for Home Protection
Common Home & Apartment Vulnerabilities- Security Systems, Locks, Doors & Windows
Response Planning, Individual & Team (Spouse, Son or Daughter) Tactics

**Lunch is limited to 30-40 minutes max and is often a “working” lunch where discussion of specific aspects related to the days class or a module of instruction is presented. Therefore it is highly recommended you bring a bag lunch.
