Self-Defense Workshop

Join the Middle Tennessee Forensic Science Society and FIRE for a free 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. Handsā€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.
