Proceeds from the self-defense class will go to the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s


Sergeant David Vilaysing, founder of DXI Training Solutions LLC, announces the formation of a dedicated team to participate in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s event in Hays on September 21.

As part of their commitment to charity, DXI Training Solutions will donate half of the profits from their upcoming Be Your Own Bodyguard (BYOB) courses to support the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.

Scheduled for June, July and August, the BYOB courses offer participants the opportunity to learn essential self-defense skills while contributing to a good cause. The intensive one-day courses take place at Fit 159, 4820 Vine St. and provide participants with practical techniques designed to increase situational awareness and personal safety. It is self-defense designed with the same efficiency as a first aid course. You will be safer within a day.

“We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to protect themselves and their loved ones,” Vilaysing said. “Our Be Your Own Bodyguard program provides individuals with the necessary skills to stay safe in today’s world.”

Developed by coach Tony Blauer, a leading figure in modern self-defense, the BYOB course uses the SPEAR system, based on natural human biomechanics and the startle response.

Participants learn effective verbal de-escalation techniques and physical self-defense maneuvers, including attacks and tactics to manage fear.

The course curriculum covers important principles such as awareness and avoidance, anxiety management, and building a personal defense arsenal. Participants will engage in exercises to increase their understanding and retention of essential self-defense concepts.

“We want to equip our community with the knowledge and skills needed to address potential threats,” Vilaysing said. “By supporting the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s®, we want to make a meaningful contribution to Alzheimer’s research and support services.”

Individuals interested in supporting the cause can donate directly to the DXI Training Solutions team at

The upcoming classes will take place on a Saturday on the following dates: June 15, July 20 and August 10.

The course lasts from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

Tuition is $199, or $299 for a group of 2.
