Number 1 Reason Bullying Programs Fail!

bully1Bullying Prevention, Anti-Bullying, or Stop Bullying! Whatever you call it, there are programs everywhere online and in the media these days! However, it seems to be getting worse rather than better. Why?   What is the Number 1 Reason Bullying Programs Fail in the opinion of SAFE International Founder, Chris Roberts?    NUMBER 1 Reason: They have no lasting effect! The majority of Anti-Bullying programs I see or hear about are on the news, and virtually 100% of the time, they involve a celebrity or athlete.  Now, that is not bad in itself, but in the news feature, typically, we see the students yelling some anti-bullying slogan. They may even get a pin or t-shirt with that anti-bullying slogan on it. Then they all leave...

Top 6 Critical SAFE 101 Rules When a Stranger is at Your Door

Security Chain on Door SeniorDuring our SAFE 101 Violence Prevention courses, one of the most widely discussed topics is, "What do I do if a stranger is at the door?".

Okay, here we go! 1) Trust Your Intuition - nevermind all the different safety gadgets available on the market when you have the most valuable safety device built right in! Every single person we have ever taught has experienced a moment when they feel like something is wrong, but they do not know what! Take as an example, getting on an elevator.

My Violence Prevention Inspiration

My Violence Prevention Inspiration
This might go against conventional thinking, but that is on purpose! In the Violence Prevention & Self Defense industry, most might think it logical to work on attracting other self-defence instructors or martial artists to spread the mission or message of your company. And while many are excellent, with SAFE International I am much more interested in those who have faced, experienced, lived with violence whether that be through domestic violence, family violence, assault, or any form of abuse BECAUSE they often have a hunger, desire, need, motivation to help make others NEVER EVER experience what they have experienced! I have worked with several of these people, most often women, but not always, and the look of sadness, but also determi...

Self-Defense Certification Story

EdmontonlogoThe goal with most self-defense courses or certifications is to offer training focused solely on self-defense. In our logo, you can read SAFE International, Changing & Saving Lives. Well, we at SAFE International have a different goal.

Most come to us for training so that they can represent SAFE International in making their communities safer. We are told our approach to personal safety is therapeutic, even holistic. We often receive emails or calls years later expressing how o...
