If you’ve been waiting for hands on self-defense and firearms training then you’ve come to the right place. This is a one day self defense workshop for Women – that you absolutely should not miss!

Are you a busy mom, career women, Realtor, teacher, nurse, work nights, work with the public, run, hike, camp, backpack, or are you someone serious about taking care of yourself and your little ones against a predator? Then this is the self-defense training you won’t regret taking. Learn how to be safe, responsible, well protected and always on the ready.

3 Main Segments | Level 1 Training

1) Self-Defense (2 hours)

This is an active session where you will learn self-defense moves with no weapon. You will learn technical movements that are simple and effective. Not strength based, but clever maneuvers to afflict and disable an assailant. This will have you saying “How simple!”, “I didn’t know I could do that” and “I wish I knew this a long time ago.”

We will have padded mats to train on – because you will be taking your partner down.

Please wear comfortable clothing.

2) Firearms Training & Safety (2 hours)

This is a classroom session where you will be taught:

  • Proper way to hold a handgun – one handed & two handed
  • Loading & unloading
  • Types of guns & holsters
  • Drawing & holstering
  • Range safety rules
  • What to tell 911 & police
  • Cover & concealment
  • Being aware & things to take notice of
  • Skills, tools & mindset
  • And more…

Bring a notebook

3) Shooting on the Range (2 hours)

Now you get to put all the theory into practice! You’ll be target shooting and loading your magazines.

Please bring your handgun, 3 magazines, 150 rounds of ammo, eye and ear protection, and holster.

STILL COME IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A GUN YET! If you are considering purchasing a gun this is the absolute best class to be taking so you can make an educated decision for when you are ready to buy a handgun. We will have handguns for you to use but you will need to purchase your own ammo. Ammo can be purchased on site.

This is a beginner level workshop for women attendees only. Instructors and assistants are the only males present. Participants must be over 18 years old.

Parts of the workshop will be filmed & photographed for future marketing purposes so we can reach more women. Saving lives is our focus.

We can only take 25 participants so everyone gets maximum value for the day. Please register early! I have done workshops prior to this and they sell out weeks before the event.



This is the reason why I bought a gun and how my journey of creating HER TACTICAL began. It all started with hearing about the tragic story of Arkansas Realtor Beverly Carter. She was kidnapped from an open house and murdered. beverlycarter.arkansasonline.com

Do you feel safe? Now is the time to get trained more than ever before. As a Realtor, I have always equipped myself with some type of weapon to protect myself. I would be foolish not to. When you’re dealing with the public, around the public or you find yourself in vulnerable places, you have to be on guard and ready. It’s not enough to just have a gun. A person without the proper gun training is dangerous. Professional firearms training helps to save lives.

Please share this with all your female family and friends. We’d love to see you supporting each other. This workshop will help to build your confidence in a safe environment. It will be a fun day with loads of questions, discussion and hands-on activity.
Save the date! Saturday May 6, 2023
