Practical Awareness & Defense Seminar

Posted on: October 31st, 2013 by admin No Comments

Practical Awareness & Defense Options

This 3 hour interactive seminar focuses on recognizing threats in your environment and defining what practical defensive options are available. Not everyone has the time to dedicate to self defense training or a martial art. However, with good awareness combined with verbal and physical distance control skills many situations can be avoided or prevented. Other options such as effective physical defense skills, pepper spray and even small handheld flashlights will also be discussed. These options can be extremely effective at deterring and or stopping an attack. This course is suitable for anyone regardless of age, gender or physical capabilities.

Topics include but are not limited to:

-Violence, Crime & Criminal Analysis
-Personal Defense Mindset
-Environmental, Situation and Personal Awareness
-Your Threat Analysis
-Recognizing Threats & How To Manage Them
-Legalities of Use of Force Overview
-Practical Physical Defense Skills for Anyone
-Alternative Defensive Options
-Skill Demonstration & Drilling

Required Equipment:

-Stable footwear
-Note taking materials
