and Safety

Equipping our communities to live safe and fulfilling lives!



Established in 2017, E3 Personal Defense™ offers professional, customized firearm training (beginner through instructor certification), safety seminars, and crime prevention programs demonstrating excellence in empowerment education!


Chris and Joy Allen are parents, pastors, and community leaders who believe that passion leads to purpose! 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 self-defense 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.

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, ministry, and society. 


I am 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.
