Ladies - we are so excited to announce the 2nd Annual Lady Warrior Weekend Retreat 2020 which will be held Friday, May 29 through Sunday, May 31 here in the beautiful Hocking Hills of southeast Ohio!

On Guard Defense Staff & CKM Smart-Safe Level 2 Certified Instructors Judi Phelps & Katie Hibbard will be on hand along with special guest trainer from Ft. Wayne, Indiana, Giovanna ("Jo") Follo, CKM Level 8 Certified Instructor -- one of three women in the world who holds that title -- and Elite Smart Safe Instructor.


Students will learn:

Situational awareness; ground survival; gun & knife disarming; strike defenses; gun safety rules; gun handling & shooting fundamentals; how to safely clear a handgun; magazine loading & reloading; resolving weapon malfunctions; live-fire shooting & more!

Don't have a gun or don't want to travel with one?  Don't worry!  We've got you covered.  For an additional fee, you can rent a gun and purchase associated ammo when you get here.

For lodging options, check out our Attractions page.  Remember, it's peak season out here in the Hills so book early!!

While CKM Smart-Safe is great for women & girls ages 12 - 80, this Retreat is for ladies 18+. 

We'll get started Friday night with dinner, drinks & discussion, spend all day Saturday together and back at it Sunday until after lunch. 

Retreat fee is $250 per student plus tax for the weekend; we'll supply lunches on Saturday and Sunday and dinner on Friday night (you are on your own Saturday evening).  If you can't attend both days, we plan Day 1 (Krav Maga) and Day 2 (Guns) - each day is $125.00 plus tax. 

Please complete the form below to reserve your spot for the Lady Warrior Weekend Retreat.  Space is limited so don't delay.  We look forward to seeing you!!
