Guys: She does not need your permission, just your support!

She wants to learn self defense.
Guys. At some point you will be faced with this situation: The lady in your life wants to learn self defense. Should you be worried that she doesn’t think you’re her knight in shining armor and can save her?  Should you encourage her to learn all she can learn?

What I can say is that it was a good, solid review and refinement of my skills, and I learned a bit more about some of the technical parts of shooting. The Glock Operators Course is meant to be one step above a basic level course. The prerequisite was to have completed a basic pistol type course. Essentially, that means you must have a foun
