Support and Training
We don’t want to talk about the countless victims that could have been saved by proper self defense. We don’t want to mention the police officers who have lacked the training needed to properly handle criminals. We don’t want to point out that crimes know no boundaries and no one person is immune, but these are all facts of the scary world we live in. Silverback Self Defense is here to make communities safer again and to teach people life saving tactics that can help themselves and those they love.
We are a professional self defense company that specializes in group, corporate, and individual training classes. Founded and owned by Robert Webre, Silverback Self Defense is passionate about helping people learn how to protect themselves and save lives. With solid leadership at our back and proven operational practices propelling us forward, Silverback Self Defense is eager to introduce the rest of the States to our customizable training programs through franchisement. Our brand is now seeking qualified candidates for an enticing franchise offering!
It all begins with leadership. Under the steady, experienced leadership of Robert Webre, Silverback Self Defense has evolved into more than just another martial arts studio, karate place, or self-defense classroom; we are a necessary and beloved community staple. Mr. Webre is a specialist in the area of self defense and personal safety. He is a certified KMG Krav Maga Instructor, a 5th Degree Black Belt in ITF TaeKwon-Do, a student of Gracie Combatives, a certified Kettlebell instructor, and a personal trainer. With over 15 years of martial arts experience, Mr. Webre is continually driven by his passion for training people how to effectively defend themselves. The Silverback Self Defense franchisees will directly benefit from such capable and experienced leadership, and we are confident that Silverback Self Defense is one of a kind. We believe that you will find no one else with the unparalleled training, operations, and support in the franchise marketplace.
Our clients embrace the empowerment that Silverback Self Defense provides. Our seminars help with situational awareness, striking basics, self defense basics, personal safety, verbally diffusing a confrontation, common objects for self defense, and more. We also offer private and semi-private training sessions providing many of the same benefits of the group but in a more intimate setting. The events offered by Silverback Self Defense provide a more tactical approach. Currently, the company provides events involving low-light pistol training and a fighting rifle skills builder. We expect that these events will continue to evolve in the near future.
We are the standouts in our industry. We aren’t another karate studio offering a free seminar to fill out our class roster at a given location. Instead, we offer on-site customized self defense seminars that are created specifically for our clients and their employees’ and/or an individual’s wants or needs. We teach the most needed, useful tactics applicable to the world in which we live. Our instructors are cross trained in multiple disciplines and we offer our clients the most effective techniques to keep them safe. We provide self defense seminars, events, firearms training, and a variety of protection products via the retail arm of the business. We have a commitment to professionalism and protection that is unmatched. With our exceptional personnel, training program, and strong commitment to our customers and their safety in any situation, Silverback Self Defense goes above and beyond any industry standard.
What else makes Silverback Self Defense the go-to franchise option?
Early adopters have the opportunity to obtain exclusive territory rights for their very own Silverback Self Defense. This means you have exclusive access to a defined area and will generally be documented as a 100,000 population center or a 5-mile radius from the location, whichever is less.
Proven Business Model
The Silverback Self Defense model has been tested and tried within its company-owned locations and has seen tremendous success. We understand exactly what the business needs to flourish within any location and deliver those resources into the hands of our franchisees.

As the world gets crazier, the training we offer has grown to be a highly sought-after commodity and is the perfect investment for any business-minded candidate. We know that retired military or law enforcement, NRA members, former executives, or entrepreneurs/investors may all be an excellent fit for our brand. Particularly, Silverback Self Defense is seeking individuals with the following qualifications:
Aggressive marketing skills and business know-how are necessary for our franchisees. More than just an expert in martial arts or self defense, the owner-operator of a Silverback Self Defense must understand how to run their business.
