Mushin SST believes in preparing you to recognize and control potential risks and be resilient against non-desirable events.


Mushin Safety & Security Training, LLC recognizes that life can change in the blink of an eye.

Being prepared can mean the difference between life and death for you or for a loved one who depends on you.

We offer a variety of opportunities to prepare you for meeting and championing such events.  


There are many classes that are scheduled regularly.


We also host Armed Lady Dayton Chapter, a GREAT way to network with like-minded people in the area, and make new friends.
