E3 PERSONAL DEFENSE

and Safety

Empowering our communities to live safe and fulfilling lives!

EDUCATE. EMPOWER. ENTHUSE.

Chris and Joy Allen are parents, pastors, and community leaders who believe that passion leads to purpose! Chris is a Marine Corps veteran, USCCA Certified Range Safety Officer (RSO), NRA Certified Pistol Instructor, and NC DOJ Certified Concealed Carry Handgun Instructor. Joy is a clinical research professional and certified firearm instructor and training counselor (credentials below). Together they share a love for people. Through community outreach and ministry work, they have witnessed far too many victims of violence, crime, ignorance, and opportunity.

 

So in May of 2017, with her husband's support, Joy decided to match her passion for helping people with her ability to train others in personal defense strategies, thereby founding E3 Personal Defense and Safety, LLC

 

OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU: Every seminar, course, personal coaching session, consultation, and home party provided by E3 Personal Defense will EMPOWER our communities, one student at a time, by providing a safe and ENTHUSED environment with gold-standard EDUCATION and resources guaranteed to enhance one's firearms journey!

 

ABOUT US

Chris and Joy Allen, Owners of E3 Personal Defense

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

- 2 Timothy 1:7

 

Self-defense is not just a set of techniques;

it's a state of mind, and it begins with the belief that you are worth defending.

Rorian Gracie

 

EDUCATE ▪ EMPOWER ▪ ENTHUSE

Let me introduce myself! I am Joy Allen, a wife, mother, pastor, counselor, corporate professional, entrepreneur, author, and community leader who is passionate about educating and equipping others to live safe, enjoyable, and empowered lives! For many years, I have devoted my life to training and mentoring others to become effective leaders in business, the church, and society. And I've found that even the most successful and faithful citizens are generally ill-informed about basic safety, crime prevention, and personal defense, especially in minority communities.

 

This is why I'm fervently dedicated to establishing community safety initiatives, organizing crime prevention networks, and coaching, mentoring, and developing quality firearms instructors from diverse communities. I specialize in providing world-class safety, personal defense, situational awareness, and foundational firearm training to communities where such resources are scarce by partnering with churches and community groups, women's associations, small businesses, government agencies, and non-profit organizations. When you enroll in an E3 Personal Defense training course, you are not only equipping yourself but also investing in someone else's opportunity to access information that may not otherwise be availed to them. You have my personal commitment that your experience will be a professional, safe, and enjoyable step toward your ability to self-protect. Together, we can transform potential victims into victors by instilling the proper knowledge, skills, and attitude for safe and enjoyable living!

Phenomenal class led by Joy and Chris! They were incredibly thorough, explaining each part of the process and making first timers feel comfortable along the way. Safety was their upmost priority and we left feeling educated, informed and ready to take the next steps. Would highly recommend this class, and more specifically, to take the class through

E3 Personal Defense!

Danaka W.

My experience was excellent! It was refreshing to have one on one time with someone who is extremely knowledgeable and very patient. I will certainly continue to recommend everyone I know to E3 for all of their personal defense needs.

Deatrice S.

Outstanding instructor! Very professional, knowledgeable and a great personality to boot! I will always take a class with Joy because she makes you feel comfortable and I know in getting top notch training which makes me a better person and gun owner. 

Ralph C.

My husband and I just took the Intro to Handgun class. We really enjoyed the teaching style and atmosphere. Joy (and her team) made everyone feel very comfortable during the instruction portion and the hands-on portion of the class. I recommend E3 to anyone who is looking to become more knowledgeable and comfortable with

owning a firearm.
