The NRA Personal Protection Expo, which takes place Sept. 6 to 8 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, TX, will include a hands-on workshop in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for self-defense hosted by Frank Mir—former two-time UFC heavyweight champion and current Bellator MMA heavyweight contender.

The seminar will encompass the mental, physical, technical, tactical and medical aspects of preparation for dealing with violent encounters.

Lt. Col. Dave Grossman—former psychology professor at West Point Military Academy, U.S. Army Ranger and paratrooper—brings unique qualifications to his in-depth look at the “Bullet Proof Mind for the Armed Citizen.” The writer and widely acclaimed speaker will address the role of an armed American citizen in the future challenges to our nation.
