STW wants to congratulate Ms. Renae Williams for making our November’s Member of the Month. Encouraged at the request of her friend, she was curious about what STW had to offer and decided to give us a try. “I came in with the attitude that I was gonna try a class, but there was no way I was gonna sign anything that day.

Women's Gun Safety & Live Fire Course Oct 19th & 20th

Posted on on Aug 8, 2012

The fear of more gun control or fear of more crime may be contributing to the rising interest in acquiring guns for protection. Women, in particular, are no longer clinging to the stereotype that owning a gun is a man’s thing, and with that knowledge they are venturing into ways they can help protect their families. In addition to taking self defense courses, many women are also turning to gun purchasing. But one thing to keep in mind is that with the ownership of a gun comes great power, and with that understanding it is crucial that one knows all the ins and outs of proper gun handling...

Jenn Mack drives more than 80 miles to and from home to enjoy her STW Krav Maga membership. She is currently a Krav Maga level 2 student, and is in the Phase B program to become level 3. Jenn took some time to share her story about how she loves a challenge and how she felt liberated with her level 1 experience. I have no heartwarming testimony.  I’m just a complete pain in the butt that loves a challenge.  I’ve been in kickboxing (Muay Thai) off and on for the last 12 years; which is great for a competitive fighter.  In Muay Thai, the tendency is to compare technique within a certain...
