Owner Daisy Angel opened Valor Defense Academy on Dec. 15. at 13201 RM 620, Austin.

Valor Defense Academy houses multiple 12-by-7-foot video screens that simulate scenarios in which a person may need self-defense knowledge. Participants use real firearms without ammunition that replicate the recoil a person would feel from using a firearm loaded with ammunition.
