If you found yourself in a life-threatening situation, do you know how you would react?
Those who have found themselves the victim of an attack will tell you: “I panicked.” “I froze.” “I didn’t know what to do.” This is because taking immediate and corrective action is next to impossible when you are suddenly thrust into a life-threatening situation. That is, unless you have a plan and can draw on the relevant resources required to counter the attack. This is what we do. We teach you how to read a hostile situation and apply your personal, pre-determined strategy to firstly reduce your risk of attack and ultimately, how to survive one should it happen to you.
We will take you step-by-step through the process of making critical decisions before facing potential conflict situations. We provide the knowledge and tools allowing you to act in the safest possible way.

You will be advised about key aspects of personal awareness, decision making, having a plan in place as well as possible weapon selections for self-defence. The course will conclude with the demonstration of a conflict situation and effective ways of dealing with it.

In this workshop we will walk you through the different categories and types of weapons available. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each choice and demonstrate the correct way to use your chosen self-defence tool.
