We take certifying Trainers in our empty hand self-preservation programs very seriously. As such, in order to certify to teach the Weaponize-Your-Body or EDGE workshops, you are required to attend an in-person training course, and pass a background check. Learning the WYB/and or EDGE approach is something you simply cannot, and should not learn at a distance (i.e., online).

You can currently certify in our civilian Weaponize-Your-Body Level 1 and EDGE Defense Level 1 Workshops. This then allows you to teach one or both of these programs to any civilian audience you choose.

Certification for these programs can be done in-person over two days with one of our Training Team Members, or at a global certification event held throughout the year. For current dates and certification costs for either in-person, or at certification events please contact us at the bottom of this page.

For certification for military, law enforcement, or close protection WYB and or EDGE courses, please contact us below for details.

Please Note: with few exceptions, you need to be an active duty law enforcement officer and or military operator to become a Trainer in our military and law enforcement WYB and or EDGE programs (or have previously served in these roles).
