  Youth Camp: Youth Marksmanship & Victim Proof

This 5-day camp will run for 1-week from July 17-21.  There will be two fun-filled sessions run every day for all campers to enjoy.  Both sessions are included with the purchase of the camp.


The first session, held daily every morning, is Youth Marksmanship where campers learn firearm safety and participate in instructor-led shooting sports.  This session will culminate with the first-ever "Peep Invasion Shooting Gallery": an old-school arcade style shooting gallery inspired by big theme parks.  No previous shooting experience is required.


The second session is the game themed Victim Proof self-defense training designed to help children deal with bullying, intimidation, and peer pressure.  Campers learn valuable life skills and Jiu-Jitsu techniques that build self-confidence, personal responsibility, and real-world self-defense skills.  No previous self-defense experience is required and all levels are welcome--there's something for everyone!



Limited time offer of $199.99 until June 1, 2017.

Pricing will increase to $249.99 in June.

Level 2.


1.5 hour class

12 student limit per classes

Classes are hands on and include physical exertion and contact. Students are paired up to role play and perform self-defense techniques. The class may discuss sensitive topics, such as abduction, sexual or domestic violence, physical attacks, physical attacks with weapons, and active shooter situations.

Class Description:

This situation awareness and self-defense class has a focus on empowering women in our community with the ability to become victim proof. We recommend you attend this class with a friend or family member, which promotes out-of-classroom discussion and takes learned techniques into real life.

Part 1: Situation Awareness & Avoiding Danger

Students will learn how to avoid vulnerability and danger when in real-world situations, including being in an empty office, unsolicited sexual advancements, shopping, walking in parking lots, intentional car accidents, bus rides, domestic disputes, and more. An emphasis is placed on avoidance of high threat/target locations, reducing the risk of being targeted, and red flags for understanding when an attacker is approaching or in direct (verbal or physical) contact. Additionally, students will discuss “the bubble” and maintaining personal space, and using your voice.

Part 2: Jiu Jitsu & Self-Defense Techniques

In the event a student cannot avoid a dangerous situation, and find themselves in the face of danger, they are prepared with physical techniques influenced through Jiu Jitsu, including:

• Defending against a standing attacker

• Escaping from a standing attacker

• Proper stance and movement while under duress

• Handling pushing and pulling

• Defending and escaping from all variants of wrist grabs

• Defending and escaping an embracing attacker (hugs)

• Defending and escaping chokes or grabs around the neck (front and rear)

Advanced techniques are demonstrated, including those leading their way towards ground attacks and defense, physically disabling an assailant, weapon disarming, weapon retention and improvised weapons. These advanced techniques are part of the next level of Victim or Victor? Classes starting in early March 2017, and are a pre-cursor to other advanced classes including “Improvised Weapons with Steve Tarani”, and “Weapon Retention with Steve Tarani”. 

This curriculum will instill our student with confidence, strength, dignity, and the ability to sense danger and react to it without further putting themselves or others at risk. Physical self-defense techniques also lead their way towards a more agile, aware, and able bodied athlete, including techniques valuable in contact sports like football, soccer, wrestling, and more. Additionally, these classes have the by-product of further building self-respect, self-worth and unity among peers and community.
