Husband and Wife Duo

We are both employed in high risk pro­fes­sions and have devoted our­selves to self pro­tec­tion train­ing, doing every­thing pos­si­ble to make sure we come home safe to each other and our 2 young chil­dren at the end of each day. We take pride in pro­vid­ing the best train­ing pos­si­ble to ensure you do the same. We are pas­sion­ate about teach­ing you the skills, phys­i­cally and men­tally, you need to sur­vive.

Being par­ents we under­stand the impor­tance of teach­ing chil­dren safety and are ded­i­cated to pro­vid­ing them with the tools they need to make it home safe.

Together, we are ded­i­cated to liv­ing active healthy life styles and take pride in moti­vat­ing oth­ers to do like­wise.

Train­ing with Sheep­dog Self Pro­tec­tion Inc is unlike any other train­ing. We do not focus on points or knock­outs in a ring but the real life sce­nar­ios one will face and how to sur­vive those sce­nar­ios and live to embrace another day.
