Q: Is this a self-defense course?
A: It is a personal safety program that teaches strategies you can use to avoid situations where self-defense is required. This course focuses on proactive courses of action, rather than reactive.

In addition, the Refuse To Be A Victim® program materials also include a special teaching module for parents which discusses tips for children ages pre-school to college. Women-only seminars are also available.

Q: Is there a fee, and what does it cover?
A: Seminar fees range in price, and are set by each individual instructor. The fees cover instructor time, and all materials distributed to seminar attendees, such as the Refuse To Be A Victim® student handbook. Seminars can also be held free of charge by applying for an NRA Foundation State Fund Committee Grant.
Q: How do I find an instructor to conduct a private seminar?
A: Refuse To Be A Victim® seminars are available for private presentations to corporations, businesses, and other groups and clubs.
