E3 PERSONAL DEFENSE
Chris and Joy Allen are parents, pastors, and community leaders who believe that passion leads to purpose! Married in 2002, they have overcome a number of life's obstacles and take every opportunity to share lessons learned with anyone who will listen.
Chris is a Marine Corps veteran. Joy is a clinical research professional and certified pistol instructor. 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 March 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.
The concept is simple. Through seminars, classes, personal coaching sessions, consultations, and home parties, E3 will EMPOWER you to live life without fear or intimidation. You will receive the EDUCATION needed to live each day with confidence. And you will ENJOY every step of the journey!
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.
TRAINER AND CONSULTANT
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 dedicated my life to training and mentoring others to become effective leaders in business, the church, and society. However, 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.
My journey with formal firearms training began in 2015. Since that time, I've learned a great deal and met a number of influential people. As I continue building my own skills and knowledge, I am determined to share the same with others.
I specialize in bringing world-class firearms training to communities where resources are scarce by concentrating my efforts on partnerships with church 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. Together, we can transform potential victims into victors by instilling the proper knowledge, skills, and attitude for safe and enjoyable living!
