What if you intentionally and confidently made informed and effective decisions for the safety of you and your children that you regularly saw prevent harm and trauma?

Staying safe is absolutely simple and attainable with the right tools and information.  We educate and empower mothers and their children through online and in person self defense and prevention offerings so that you can confidently live in prevention, become impressed with your ability, and even see how taking care of your own family makes a difference in the world around you. 

Be Introduced to Your Power!


Imagine casually and confidently taking action after noticing someone following you around the store.  What if you were able to address and stop unwanted attention - even from a boss, teacher, friend's husband or authority figure - without drawing negative attention or worrying about backlash?  What if you felt safe attending night classes or picking up extra cash working the night shift?  How relieved would you be if you could simply and unconcernedly just get into your vehicle with your children after shopping?  Can you see yourself safely and confidently deescalating and helping your child through a meltdown or outburst?  What about sibling rivalry? What if you were able to keep yourself safe from loved one struggling with addiction, dementia or other mental health concerns? Or how about if you could set and uphold boundaries with family or an Ex?  Can you see yourself being absolutely sure your kids are safe with the nanny or babysitter - without a nanny cam - as well as at either daycare or school?  What if you were sure you were raising confident and capable children to be difficult and unlikely targets?  

How much more energy would you have to invest in yourself, your children, and your life without the uneasiness of being unsafe? 

You deserve the freedom of all of the above and more.

Maybe you thought weapons could give you that, but if that's the case you may have realized the nagging worry is still there and weapons come with their own additional concerns.  Karate is a popular attempted solution for both moms and children, but very few stick with it long enough for it to be really helpful.  Maybe you're like the many that just ended up with some pepper spray or self defense key chains you may or may not know how to use. Or maybe you just order groceries for delivery, quit showing up for friendships, stopped going out and/or getting well needed services.

Whether you have a CPL, signed up for kickboxing, carry pepper spray, or have resolved to isolating and becoming reclusive -

Beating Disaster will add to what you already know about self defense to Replace Your Worry with FREEDOM.

What Our Clients Say

KeySlinger Training changed my life! Now I know that's a bold statement, but let me tell you why. I am more safe and secure going and leaving all of my daily activities. Parking garage at work - not a concern anymore. Grocery shopping with my kid - no worries. Not only can my KeySlinger accompany me to and from places it's also discreet and can travel past metal detectors. 


With this training I was able to learn skills I could immediately use after leaving.  The techniques are easily doable for even a petite person, like myself. Thanks to Beating Disaster I enjoy peace of mind and a greater sense of security from being well trained on how to protect myself.”​
