What People Say...
This is not just courses, at Tip of Spear, it is empowering, and will change how you think about health, mental health, and self-defense. It does not matter if you are considering firearms safety, martial arts, or something like handcuffing certification, this company, it feels like an investment in you as a person.
I have been a cop in the US for years including swat. This is far the most realistic and best training I have been to yet for defensive tactics.
I just had an amazing one hour self-defense class at Tip of Spear: Krav Maga. The generosity to give a free lesson on International Women’s Self-Defense Day speaks volumes of Tip of Spear’s character. I found the facility clean and welcoming. The staff and volunteers were helpful, kind, friendly and knowledgeable. I recommend anyone to go check it out!
