My family and I had bought Defenders and done Fortis Tactical Combatives Training up to module 3. We live on a farm and on May 5 2012 at 2am we used the guns and training to prevent farm attackers to hurt or rob us.
The attackers killed the neighbouring farmers before targeting ourselves. I was alone at home with my daughter in law and was warned by my fence alarm and then glass breaking from the living room. I used the tactics taught by Fortis to bunker in and took the attackers on when they walked into my channel.
After about 10 shots from my defender gun, the attackers fleed. Thank you Fortis for helping us to survive!
Net ‘n kort briefie om te laat weet dat Defender Kompakt gewere wat ons verlede jaar vir Myn Beskermingsdienste aangekoop het ‘n wenner is!
Ons het die gewere suksesvol in verskeie scenarios aangewend byvoorbeeld onluste/skare beheer, reaksie op alarms, as primere verdedigings wapen vir sekuriteit personeel tydens verwydering van onwettige plakkers ens.
Die kompakte ontwerp van die wapen maak dit uiters geskik vir gebruik in patrollie voertuie en al ons patrollie voertuie is daarmee toegerus.
Dear Nelis & Riaan, I woke up early on Saturday morning with mixed feelings whether I should attend the course on Saturday as I wasn’t quite sure what to expect and if this is really for me.
I have always felt intimidated by any violence, guns, knives and crime, even in the movies. What an eye opener and being pulled out of my comfort zone attending the Knife & Pepper Spray Defence Course presented by Fortis!
Being a woman on my own most of the times, it has taught me to be more aware of my surroundings at all times. The course has taught me techniques which I knew nothing of and enabling me to defend myself in any unexpected situations that might occur.
I would highly recommend this course to all my friends (guys & girls), my family and any members of the public to attend such a course, even if it’s only once. Thank you for your patience, motivation and the way you have dealt with each and every person on different levels and personalities on Saturday. I look forward to the next courses offered by Fortis Pro Active Defence Solutions group.
