Want to feel safe? Dave Pike, owner and lead instructor of PDC, has developed a non-martial arts Self Defense Series (Simply Safer, formerly known as M.A.D.S.) that will teach you practical, proven and effective self defense techniques that are easy to learn and remember. You will learn how to be mentally, emotionally and physically prepared to perceive, avoid and defend against violent situations, all in a friendly and considerate atmosphere. Our self defense courses include our own Simply Safer Self Defense Series as well as programs certified through PPCT and NRA.

Our Criminal Justice courses are certified by Human Factor Research Group (aka PPCT). PPCT has become a leader in the field of criminal justice and is known for its use-of-force research in three areas: legal, medical and tactical. PPCT’s methodology of conducting documented research has made it a leader in its field and is a primary reason why the training is recognized to be not only effective in the field, but also defensible in the courtroom.
