Chief Instructor, Scott Mitchell

avoid – deter – prevent – manage – prevail

At Provident Personal Protection our goal is to help people live safe, peaceful lives by empowering them with the knowledge, skills and mindset to understand, avoid, deter, prevent and manage violence directed towards themselves and others.

Provident PP was started in 2012 with the idea that although decent and reasonable people prefer to live free from violence, we live in a world where violence and aggression directed toward us is always a possibility, however remote. At Provident, we believe that to learn skills and strategies for self protection is not to promote violence; rather, it allows a person to walk in peace and promote understanding.

We hope that everyone will persist in showing compassion for those less fortunate than themselves; persist in loving their fellow man, but never at the price of becoming his victim.
