Our Member Education Commitment 9

Education by Recognized Experts

New Network members receive nearly eight hours of video lectures in the new member package, as well as accessing most of the materials via streaming video in the member-only portion of our website. Through this training effort, the Network has created a well-prepared membership that understands the legalities of using force in self defense, what to expect in the aftermath of self defense and associated issues.

This lecture series is provided exclusively to Network members and is not sold commercially. New members receive eight DVD disks and a book, which are in depth, academic lessons taught by leading instructors and legal experts. The video lectures are ready to be used as documentation of training in court, so are designed to withstand scrutiny, not to act as “info-tainment.” They are objective and reliable. The lectures are complemented by a full-length book written by Massad Ayoob.


Subjects taught include:

  • The legal parameters governing use of force in self defense.
  • Managing the immediate aftermath of using force in self defense.
  • Post self-defense legal concerns arising in the weeks and months after the incident.
  • Identifying and explaining pre-assault indicators and how they influence self-defense decision-making and justification in the aftermath.

These training materials have prepared Network members to face and counter threats. Since our first year, 2008, only 21 Network members have been involved in cases requiring assistance from the Legal Defense Fund. This low incidence of need indicates a careful, well-educated membership, and shows to value of training, and the importance of understanding the aftermath of use of force.
