What Makes the Vigilance Group Different?

TVG operates on the foundational belief that safety is not just a privilege, but a right that belongs to everyone. Since our inception in 2008, we’ve dedicated ourselves to transforming this belief into action by personally training thousands of individuals on how to navigate the complexities of a dangerous world safely.

As a Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business, we’re not just trainers; we’re experienced protectors. Our team’s extensive background in military and law enforcement provides a unique, real-world perspective on personal safety that we share with every participant.

We believe in:

Empowerment Through Education

We empower each woman by imparting a critical skill set focused on awareness, avoidance, and action—fundamental keys to ensuring personal safety.

Experience-Based Learning

With years of military and law enforcement experience under our belts, we offer insights into personal safety that are rooted in real-world application, not just theory.

Mindset Over Muscle

Our training philosophy emphasizes the importance of mental preparedness and situational awareness over physical confrontation. We believe in equipping individuals with the knowledge to avoid dangerous situations before they escalate.

Interactive and Engaging Workshops

Our sessions are designed to be interactive, ensuring participants not only learn but also apply these crucial skills in simulated scenarios. This hands-on approach helps solidify learning and prepares individuals for real-life situations.

A Focus on Prevention

By prioritizing strategies to recognize and avoid danger, our training helps women minimize the likelihood of needing to employ physical self-defense, positioning it as a last resort.

We weave together the threads of experience, empowerment, and practical education to create safety training that prepares you not just to survive, but to thrive.

Learn how to navigate your world with confidence and peace of mind!
