Natural Right of Self Defense

About Our Company

NROSD LLC is a training company, dedicated to teaching law-abiding citizens of Illinois the law of self defense. 

NROSD’s mission has two pillars:

  • First pillar:  with our own material, we teach the law of self-defense and the legal aftermath of a self-defense encounter. 
  • Second pillar:  with guest instructors, we help our students develop and hone two vital skill sets: 
    • The continuum of defensive force; and
    • Personal intuition, situational awareness, and threat avoidance. 

These two pillars are closely related.  The second pillar of our mission flows directly from the first.  Case law clearly shows that maximum defensive force is not your best ‘first defensive option’, except in response to a maximum force attack.  As you learn the law of self-defense, you will understand the need for skills across the continuum of defensive force and the need for honing your intuition and situational awareness. 

A self-defense encounter is unexpected, quick, and challenging.  The legal aftermath of a self-defense encounter can be big, complex, and daunting.  The wise prescription is knowledge and preparation.  All of our training provides the critical foundation for your decisions and actions in and after that self-defense encounter, but you need it before the encounter.

A natural right is a personal right described in America’s Declaration of Independence, as follows:  “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  Another of these is the natural right of self-defense which has been recognized and developed for millennia, notably by Roman scholars, St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas, Hugo Grotius, Sir William Blackstone, Thomas Jefferson, and others.  NROSD LLC educates its students on what it means to exercise the natural right of self-defense.

Your best defense is your knowledge, if you have the right information.

PLEASE NOTE:  NROSD LLC is not a law firm, is not engaged in the practice of law, and does not give legal advice.  However, you will learn principles and specifics of the law of self-defense.  Our “Good to Go” seminar is ‘must have’ knowledge for law-abiding citizens who have a CCW license or are considering it.  Learn the law.  Learn the skills to defend yourself and your family.  Ignorance is no excuse.
