Private Self Defense Lessons
Chris Roberts and his team have taught more than
100,000 women, men, and teens since 1994 in private, corporate and school settings, as well as with
our self defense DVD. We are a MOBILE self defense business. Safe International will
teach at your location throughout North America. This mobility makes it easy for you to offer any
of our different programs!
I train / consult women and men privately on a
weekly basis. My private clients include anywhere from mothers, fathers, daughters to police
officers, seniors, and people with disabilities. I quickly learned that if a technique could not be
taught and learned quickly, it would never be effective or valuable to my clients. I am constantly
studying and implementing new techniques when they fit my criteria of being simple but effective.
If the technique might save a life, I am interested. Our techniques are taught on the basis of
Gross Motor movements.
This program is designed for people who want to
train privately or in a small group setting. I have taken the best techniques from different
systems and designed a course for people who want to learn practical, effective techniques as quick
as possible. I cover the most common street attacks as well as knife, gun and ground attacks.
Students will get the opportunity to practice skills learned through controlled realistic training
drills. There will be extended instruction on pre attack psychology as well as physical combative
training. Don't forget to ask about our 1 day extended private lesson for the person who is too
busy to train on an ongoing basis but want to learn the skills to protect themself and their
family. This course is perfect for the busy executive or person who may be on the road a lot and
out of town. Course will include an interview so that a I can design a lesson plan perfectly suited
for your personal situation.
Many people ask if defending oneself is as
simple as learning self defense skills. Here is a short outline of how the defense formula works
and why you need to study, learn, and understand it.
RECOGNIZE REACT RESPOND
Recognize - tapping into your awareness and
intuition skills is the most important and quite commonly ignored skill. You already have the
intuition built in and available. Many people call it their sixth sense. Women have particularly
good intuition skills. Simply put, it is that gut feeling you get when something just doesn't feel
right. For example, have you ever been about to get on an elevator, and while you are getting on,
you see someone who just does not give you a good vibe? Quite often you don't even know why, it is
just a deep, intense feeling. Did you trust it and walk away? Or, did you ignore it at the risk of
offending someone who you have never met and will probably never see again? A considerable part of
my course addresses the daily routines we all have, including their potential risks. Recognizing
potential danger is the first and most important step. Most times you can just get out of the
situation and avoid an attack.
React - how you react when you are
exposed to a potentially dangerous situation is critical. Do you get scared and imagine a
terrible result including either verbal abuse or maybe verbal and physical abuse resulting in
injuries or worse? We teach how to get the proper mindset so that you can make an intelligent
decision whether it be using proper de-escalating verbal skills or how to get into proper mindset
if a physical confrontation is unavoidable.
Respond - while all the steps here are
connected to one another this is the step in which you either use those verbal skills or you
execute your defensive arsenal in an attempt to get home safely to your family. You are able to
respond in a decisive manner because you will have your own personal reasons and confidence to deal
with whichever option you choose. So many people get paralyzed because, either they do not know
what to do or they have never trained utilizing drills that recreate the emotional and
psychological challenges of a real life attack. Once you have the proper mindset embedded in you,
it becomes automatic.
