Middle Tennessee Forensic Science Society

Self-Defense Workshop

Join us for a self-defense workshop with instructor Levi Montgomery. This workshop is designed to provide participants with basic information regarding the laws that protect victims and attackers. Hands‐on demonstrations will allow participants the opportunity to learn and practice techniques to prevent confrontations and defend against an attack, if necessary. These techniques are practical for everyone, regardless of size and strength.
Montgomery is co-owner and chief instructor for Priority One's Lebanon Self Defense. His law enforcement career began in 1979, and his postings as a police officer have included SWAT, undercover, vice, patrol, and tactical training officer. With an extensive background in police tactics, weapons use, and Martial Arts, his unique methods of controlling aggression have been recognized and implemented throughout the U.S. and abroad by special operation groups such as Team MIKE in Kosovo, H8 (Hostile Area Tactical Escort) Teams in Iraq, and special interest groups operating out of the western U.S. In addition, Montgomery is a Master Tracking Instructor trainer, instructing law enforcement and military personnel throughout the United States and Canada in the use of police tactics and Visual/Tactical Man Tracking.

The Middle Tennessee Forensic Science Society was established to bring together students and faculty with an interest in forensic sciences. We mtfsswelcome members from all majors. Currently, our membership consists of individuals with interests in biology, chemistry, anthropology, nursing, environmental science, criminal justice, and art. The organization provides its members with the opportunity to discuss current research in various fields of forensic science and encourages interdisciplinary research collaborations. Several members are currently conducting their own scientific research with forensic applications.

MT Forensic Science Society also provides its members with opportunities for networking and professional development. As a co-sponsor of the William M. Bass Legends in Forensic Science Lecture Series, our members are able to attend small group discussions with internationally known experts such as forensic anthropologists, FBI criminal profilers, and medical examiners during their campus visits. Members are also encouraged to attend the American Academy of Forensic Sciences annual meeting where they can meet practicing professionals spanning eleven major sections of forensic science research. Financial assistance is often available for members attending meetings for research presentations.

MT Forensic Science Society is a great way to meet others with an interest in forensic sciences, whether you are pursuing a career in forensics or just enjoy current research in the field. If you are interested in membership or would like more information, please contact us at fire@mtsu.edu.
