The Safety Concepts team has over 65 years of combined experience in fields related to crime, violence, and conflict… from both sides of the law. Our research and instruction are firmly rooted in decades of high-level training and real-world problem-solving.
Jenna Meek is anything but. A homeschool mom, self-defense author, and certified firearms instructor, she brings an impressive resume of formal training with the who’s-who of the shooting world. She runs publishing and defensive firearms businesses with her husband, Jeff. She has authored and published three books.
Marc MacYoung is a proudly reformed bad guy, ex-violence professional, and Safety Concepts’ resident grumpy old man. Marc is grumpy because he has “been there and done that.” He hates seeing bad information hurt good people. That’s why he became a pioneer in the self-defense industry, authoring over 30 books and videos about crime, violence, and conflict.
Dan LoGrasso is the owner and operator of Silent Partner Productions. He brings a decade of intense media and communications experience to the Safety Concepts team. An Iraq veteran with his own resume of impressive training, Dan works behind the curtain herding a variety of cats and doing his life’s work: getting expert information to the people who need it most.
After 6 years informal collaboration, Marc, Jenna, and Dan have surrendered to the inevitable: despite all efforts, they are a team.

What makes Safety Concepts different?
There is a lot of training out there. We’re here to educate.
Our focus is on the skills and information most people need in most places, most of the time. Most people don’t need to be action heroes. Most people need to deal with everyday intimidation, boundary violations, and navigating unfamiliar circumstances.
Do we have specialized training for extraordinary circumstances? Yes, but we build a foundation of fundamental understanding first. Before learning to handle dangerous situations, we teach people how to recognize them and avoid them altogether when they can.
That said, we are in the business of building capable, confident people. When a conflict can’t be avoided, we will arm you with the best information about what to do before, during, and after to make sure you go home to your loved ones.
Why is Safety Concepts worth supporting?
Safety Concepts is our passion, but it is not a hobby.
In this field, what you don’t know can kill you. Literally. We take that so seriously that we wrote a whole book on it. Our promise to you is that we will never reduce the quality of our information for financial gain.
We bring you the realities of these subjects, comfortable or not. Because there are real hazards, we’re not afraid to call out bad information and training to keep people safe. Going against popular narratives means some risk-taking on the business side of things. Financial independence helps us keep the lights on because we will always put your safety first.
Finally, we believe in giving back. We are already rebuilding No Nonsense Self-Defense, our huge, free database of self-defense information that has been available and completely free for over 20 years. Your support will help us actively reach those most at-risk and give them the tools they need to get to better circumstances.
