About SAFE International™

About SAFE International™

At the helm of SAFE International™ is founder and CEO Christopher Roberts. Since forming SAFE International™ over 20 years ago, Chris has firmly established his company as Canada’s leader in self-protection instruction. And in doing so, has expanded throughout the U.S. and internationally as well. Through Chris’ vision, SAFE International™ has taught more than 195,000 individuals since 1994 and continues to meet the growing needs of people, corporations, organizations and schools year after year. SAFE International™ has continuously provided both effective, and highly memorable, personal protection instruction through their unique ability to reach clients in a way that enables them to retain and utilize the skills if necessary. This is not a martial arts program, but rather, a practical and realistic approach to personal safety.
