There are criminals on the streets that want to do you harm! Are you prepared to defend yourself? Are you not yet ready to use a gun for personal protection? Or would you simply like to complement your current firearm with another powerful, safe and effective self-defense tool? One great, less-than-lethal option for you may be Oleoresin Capsicum (OC), more commonly known as pepper spray. Extracted from peppers, OC spray irritates the eyes to cause tears, pain, and temporary blindness. Learn the best ways to use pepper spray to stop and escape dangerous threats.

Advance your skills by deploying the practice spray at your instructor during a simulated attack! BE SMART – BE READY – BE SAFE!
Each student will receive 3 water-filled inert practice canisters, a defense spray with quick-release key ring, a certificate of completion, civilian safety awareness manual, hands-on training, survivor skills for smart living, safety awareness information, tips, skills, and techniques all within a fun atmosphere.

Read what our students have to say about this course:
"Very informative training course. Helpful and interesting." ~ Linda P. of Syracuse, NY
Helpful and interesting.
"I was not familiar with pepper spray always living in rural areas. It was either hand to hand confrontation or everyone understood, we have weapons!! This training course with Saber has shown me that there is another option. A less physical contact and less lethal option. I am pumped about helping others have the confidence to protect themselves or de escalate a situation. Having pepper spray should be the minimum form of protection. Thank you Matt and Saber for your commitment to public safety. I’m excited to be a part of this team!" ~ Joseph H. of Merritt Island, FL
I am pumped about helping others.
"I attended the Sabre CSAP Instructor course in Titusville, FL. Matt was every bit as dynamic and engaging an instructor as he appears in his videos. He kept my interest the whole day and made the material even more interesting with his personal input. I will definitely seek out more of Matt's trainings offered in Florida. Thank you Matt for your input regarding my instructor style. I will work on the items you brought to my attention." ~ Michael C. of Fort Pierce, FL
He kept my interest the whole day
"Matt, you are a very talented young man. What a blessing to meet someone like you. God bless you in your business and in your life. Your classes were very informative and engaging. God bless you, brother. Hope to see you again sometime." ~ Ricky from Syracuse, NY about our Church Security and SABRE Red Pepper Spray Courses
Matt, you are a very talented young man.
"Excellent instruction. I have taken multiple courses from PS&ED; Article 35, SIMCO, USCCA, ETC… This not only helped get my restrictions removed but it provided realistic situational instruction as well as clear information regarding legal rights and responsibilities. This is NOT target shooting at the range. This is situational recognition, avoidance, engagement, legal ramifications, etc… I believe this is good experience for anyone wishing to carry unrestricted and I believe the judges look favorably on this type of instruction." ~ Paul from Liverpool, NY about many of our courses and helping to get his restriction removed
"You were informative and thorough, and entertaining at the same time. I took a six hour course and the time just flew by. I am so much more aware of my surroundings now and feel better prepared for the unexpected. Thank you, Matt! I will recommend your classes to everyone! You are truly an amazing person!" ~ Lynn from Syracuse, NY about our Church Security Courses and SABRE Red Pepper Spray Course
You are truly an amazing person!
"Another excellent PS&ED course." ~ Mick from Syracuse, NY about our SABRE Red Pepper Spray Course
Another excellent PS&ED course.
"This was a great class. It was informative and fun at the same time. It give me a better understanding of my surroundings. It taught me what I need to be aware of and how quickly a situation can occur. Matt was a wonderful instructor and was very knowledgeable of the content and the real life examples/experiences. I would highly recommend this course and others that Matt offers." ~ Kaylie from Liverpool, NY about our SABRE Red Pepper Spray Course
It was informative and fun at the same time.
"Matt was fantastic! The sabre red class was my first class here so I wasn't sure what to expect. Matt made the information entertaining and educational. I learned a lot in the class. In fact, I've been working on my muscle memory and practicing using the pepper spray and how to move out of the way. I've already signed up for 2 other classes – the basic safety class – since I'm beginning the arduous process of getting my pistol permit, – and the article 35 class in June. If Matt is teaching these classes, then I know I will learn a lot and I'm really looking forward to them." ~ Christine from Liverpool, NY about our SABRE Red Pepper Spray Course
Matt was fantastic!
"I attended Matt's class on Pepper Spray recently and found it very helpful and informative. It was a good combination of classroom and practice so that I felt more comfortable actually using the pepper spray canister should I ever need to. Matt's classes are enjoyable with a relaxed atmosphere while at the same time much information is covered. I particularly liked the small class size as it allowed us extra time for practice. I would recommend classes with Matt and intend to take a few more myself." ~ CJ from Jamesville, NY about our SABRE Red Pepper Spray Course
…found it very helpful and informative.
