DeKalb, IL –-( Gun Guy Radio (GGR) recently interviewed Active Self Protection (ASP) to discuss their approach towards self-defense training.

ASP was started in 2011 and offers self-defense training that encourages its students to develop more than just firearms skills, such as empty-handed skills, verbal skills, de-escalation skills, and physical conditioning.

In this episode, GGR host Ryan Michad questions ASP about its work analyzing what happens during a violent encounter and the lessons learned that can apply to an individual’s self-defense plans.
