p.e training systems



We have the solution to help schools safely and effectively empower our children, giving them Confidence through proper education to be aware and prepared!


A school district may task their physical education department with providing personal safety/self-defense training for students. But, oftentimes, the physical education professional has little to no experience in personal safety/self-defense training. So, he or she must do one of two things:
  • Hire an external training resource to teach a program, or
  • The PE Professional attempts to quickly learn how to develop and teach a program through whatever training program that can be found.   
Physical Education Departments need a proven instructional system and methodology, a comprehensive curriculum and the ability to teach simple, realistic, practical and effective physical skills. PE teachers must provide students with heightened awareness, basic physical self-defense skills and most importantly the understanding of the appropriate application of the knowledge and physical skills!


The EmpowerUSA’s Personal Safety & Self Defense Training Program for Physical Education Professionals, provides a comprehensive turn-key system that every P.E. professional needs, including:
1.  A Train-the-Teacher course that prepares the P.E. professional to teach basic personal safety and self defense. This training course can be completed online or with hard copy materials - it includes:
  • One Instructor Training Manual
  • ​Two DVDs - physical skills training (may be used as part of the course materials)
  • ​One “open book” Final Exam to earn a certificate of completion
  • ​Available in both hard copy and online formats
  • ​Optional Service – EmpowerUSA can provide live practical self defense skills training.

The Empower Self Defense Instructor Training / Certification Program Increases and improves the knowledge, skills, teaching capabilities and self defense business acumen of anyone who teaches self defense or personal safety programs.


“The course was everything you promised, and I found it to be a fantastic resource. It really focuses on empowering the students, which is exactly what I was hoping for. And all the behavioral and awareness information and the focus on how to avoid conflict was just perfect – it was everything that I found to be missing from self-defense discussions in traditional Martial Arts training. The Phase 2 course showed practical, easy to use loosening & escape techniques that anyone can learn to use. I’ll definitely be looking for Phase 3.”                                             
~Jim Lane, Canada

“Mr. Rochford, Thank you so much for the exceptional presentation of self defense material. I have learned a great deal from it and can’t wait to learn more! I am so glad that this information was offered to renew my personal training certification! Thank you! Wonderful class!” 
                                            ~Melanie C., Reno, NV

“The course was clear and concise; the instructor is really trying to make certain that the students understand the material as opposed to being purposely vague, as with some other courses.”
