Have you ever thought about what you would do if faced with someone trying to harm you? Most of us think we can make the right choice by avoiding the problem in the first place, and that is partly true. But to avoid it, you have to see it coming first.  Our two hour safety awareness class helps you understand how a criminal thinks, what they see when they pick a target, and how to take yourself out of the target zone. 

Our short seminar is designed for people who have a busy schedule but want to know about basic safety options. Our interactive seminar will discuss non lethal options such as pepper spray, and kubotons. We will briefly cover what they are,  how they work, and how to properly use them. Class members can also participate by spraying  inert pepper spray at a target.

Once you understand the concept of awareness, your next step is to pick the right option for the problem. Sometimes, avoidance doesn't work, or it's simply not possible.  Concealed Carry, Krav Maga, Sudden Assault Response Systems, Advanced tactical application in pistols, and judgment training, are all options we teach.

Once you pick the option that best suits your needs, and tolerance, we can help you through teaching, training, practice, and scenario's.

About us


"If you shoot like a girl, it must mean you are pretty good!" says Debbie Brown, President and Lead Instructor for AwareConfrontReact. A shooter since she was 16 years old, Debbie became a firearms instructor in 2009. She received her certification through the state of Ohio's Peace Officer Training Academy, and then through the National Rifle Association. She is certified in Pistol, Shotgun, and Revolver, and as a member of the International Law Enforcement Educators And Trainers Association, has taken extensive classes to keep current in all tactics related to firearms training.

She is a certified Subject Control Instructor, an assistant instructor in the Sudden Assault Response System, and is currently an instructor at Medina Career Center Police Academy.

 

"All techniques work, until they don't." A phrase Henry Brettrager, guest instructor at AwareConfrontReact, says frequently. He lives by the saying, understanding that one technique does't work for everything. Being a practitioner of several disciplines of the martial arts, and a Martial Art Instructor for over 30 years, Henry recently developed his own self defense program, Sudden Assault Response System. Originally developed for law enforcement officers who were suddenly and violently attacked, he has taught this simple and effective system for the past five years to police departments from all over the world. He has been featured in PoliceOne training videos for law enforcement and corrections.

 An excellent firearms instructor, Henry has firearm certifications in pistol, shotgun, revolver, and carbine rifles. He has a background in swat tactics as a operator and swat commander.

Henry recently returned from St. Louis after a week long instructor level certification in Krav Maga. A concept driven system designed to teach students in the shortest amount of time to defeat attackers. Henry's instructor rating is one of only a few in northeast Ohio obtained by certified Krav Maga instructors trained in Israel by former and current IDF Commanders and Security Chiefs.
