Mission Statement


WDW Training Center, Inc., is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization committed to helping people learn to defend themselves.  We are co-ed but specialize in helping women, senior citizens, kids/families, the underprivileged and disabled with self-defense.


Through our endeavors, students learn many forms of self-defense (armed or unarmed) including awareness, empowerment and the personal safety zone.  Kids learn, among other things, awareness, how to avoid strangers and how to fight back against abduction.  We even have homework practice for parents to work with their kids at home or vehicle/trunk escape.

With our help students learn to be alert, aware of their surroundings and most importantly prepared, mentally, for the unknown, or what is known as the survival mindset.

Besides the traditional defensive training we have designed specific courses geared towards soft-targets.

We offer hands-on Basic Range Training, CCW permit class with mindset, defensive shooting & active shooter awareness, aftermath (what to do) and helping the disabled learn to defend themselves.


Most of us are women instructors, many of whom have experienced violence or threats in the past, and well know what it means to be able to defend ourselves.  We are committed to convey our evasive/defensive tactics & non-lethal weaponry training and NRA & top U.S. firearms academy training to those who are vulnerable and pose easy targets. 

Our dedication to helping others with self-defense is one of the most rewarding enterprises we have ever embarked upon.
