Can you imagine feeling confident you and your kids were safe and PREPARED - all day, every day, and even everywhere?

Staying safe is absolutely simple and attainable with the right tools and information - even among unsafe people and in unsafe situations.

Beating Disaster educates and empowers mothers and their children in prevention, protection and defense.  We provide focused and relevant online and in person training, courses, coaching and materials to quickly get you and your kids PREPARED for the world we live in today. 

Our purpose is to help you reduce the chances of you or your children being victimized, needing to defend yourself or recover from trauma, and rest assured you can keep yourself and your children safe. 

What Moms Really Need to Know


Imagine noticing someone following you around the store and not being concerned about it.  What if you were able to address and stop unwanted attention - even from a boss or friend's husband - and without worrying about backlash?  What if you felt safe attending night classes or picking up extra cash working the night shift?  Want to feel safe going out with your girlfriends without a male chaperone? How relieved would you be if you could just get into your car with your children without stressing? 

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

So many expect and accept women and children experience trauma and need therapists to help recover from life experiences. What a nightmare! Beating Disaster provides what you and your children need to know to reduce the chances of ever being victimized, needing to defend yourself or recover from trauma, which happens not only at the hands of strangers but also acquaintances and even friends or family. 

Most of us, whether we have taken some kind of self defense training or not, have only two settings when confronted with a concern: tolerating it or obliterating it, but most threats need skills found in the middle.  Beating Disaster is excited to provide unique offerings with the tools mothers really need, the ones for everything in between, so that you are confident in your ability to appropriately handle whatever comes your way. 

Ditch worry.  Be PREPARED.  Get out and live life.

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.”​

We train mothers because that's how we've discovered to make the most impact on our world.


For every mother we train it means every grocery store, neighborhood and school that mother visits becomes more safe just because she's present. And moms raise children which means the next generation takes a lifestyle of prevention and life changing information into the world with them, too. 

When you invest in training, you not only increase your own safety but also that of your children and the world we live in today.
