I’m your guide, Philip Toppino
I started W.O.F.T 12 years ago because I wanted a better training experience for my family and couldn't find one around the country, so I made my own.
Being a husband and father, I understand the need to protect what matters most.
Most self defense training falls short when it comes to defending yourself “in the wild”. Sure, you can learn skills and valuable things like self-discipline. But that will be of little use if you haven’t experienced what it feels like to have another human being come at you with the intent to truly do you harm. Experiencing this “real” feeling makes all the difference.
My goal in establishing W.O.F.T. was to create a totally safe environment for people like you to experience conflict in a way that is not overwhelming.
Our multi-million dollar facility combines special equipment with world-class trainers to make this possible, including fully body protection and specially-designed weaponry.
Our scenarios incorporate 100% surprise just like you’d experience in the real world.
It is remarkable how quickly a person transforms from helpless to what we would call a “hard target” by going through these drills.
I personally supervise your scenarios and it gives me genuine satisfaction to witness that metamorphosis.
Take a look at some of our testimonials and you’ll see what I mean.
Thank you for checking out our site and I hope to see you in one of our life-changing scenarios soon.
What would you do if you or your family were actually attacked?
The problem is: most people have no idea.
That leaves them feeling uncertain about whether they’d survive.
Real-life attacks are full of surprises – they don’t follow a pattern.
Meanwhile, most training programs use rigid, predetermined routines.
Would that actually protect you in real life?
There is a better way.
We use realistic scenarios tailored to your specific skill level and special equipment so you can safely experience the feeling of a surprise attack and learn what to do BEFORE something bad actually happens.

First time I came by myself to try it out and ended up returning for a second time with my kids. I was so impressed with the facility and what Philip and WOFT has done that I knew this is where my kids could learn safety and awareness. At WOFT, they create scenarios for you so you can learn what it feels like to go slow and make mistakes, to figure out how to react... not to feel like we're getting thrown into the deep end to sink or swim. I feel like it's important for families to come to WOFT because we see these things happening on the news but always think that these situations will never happen to us... but having yourself and your kids actually be in a situation where it could happen in reality, I know now my kids will never be the same, they are smarter, quicker, more aware. It is absolutely life changing, every family should invest without a shadow of doubt in WOFT.
Scenario training has become the most important part of my training, all owed to WOFT, a facility where you’ll get world class training that will change your life forever. It allows you to get a great sense of what it feels like to be scared and have your adrenaline dump, to having murphy’s law happen where you might fumble something and you notice that everything you worked through in your head doesn’t work out; there’s all kinds of pieces to the puzzle that you don’t control but through continuous training you’ll learn to be able to handle the stress of the unknown to better control the situation.
After hearing rumors of a high-end fantasy camp with the best scenario and firearms training available, I had to experience it for myself. I attended my first class with very high expectations and was absolutely blown away. I’ve trained a lot over 20 years, WOFT was unequivocally the best experience from start to finish. After my first trip I registered for five more classes. WOFT takes it to the next level with their real-world scenario training. They cater to and customize to every skill set. They preach that you’re not going for perfection you’re going for excellence... and that excellence isn't about achieving the same bar as everybody else but where I started and where I ended up. Through my training at WOFT I was able to see how much one can develop when you’re able to train with the best and able to receive world class instruction. I was able to hone my skills to protect not only myself but also my family.
