Come join the SAFE International™ Family as a Core Curriculum Certified Instructor and add the SAFE concepts and principles to your Self Defense toolbox. This certification will enable you to offer solutions to people with or without any previous training. As Chris Roberts likes to say, "If you only had 5 hours to teach self defense - what would you teach?". This is the foundation upon which our Core Curriculum module is based.
This module covers self defense from a 360-degree perspective. We take an in depth look at the psychology of violence from the perspective of the intended victim, the aggressor, bystanders or other parties who may be involved. We examine closely the relation of human behaviour to both social and anti-social violence with a focus on avoiding violence through both environmental and situational awareness. Through an examination of the potential hazards people may face in their daily lives, you will be prepared to offer them solutions whether they are a teen, adult, senior, corporate executive, or busy stay at home parent.
Using proven behavioural and psychological principles to navigate through the chaos of confrontation, this module will give you the tools to defuse and de-escalate a potentially violent assault using tried and tested tactics.
Topics include fear, stress and confrontation management skills, differentiating between a good guy having a bad day and a genuine 'bad guy', verbal de-escalation strategies, conflict resolution principles, pre-contact cues and indicators, threat and behavioural pattern recognition as well as the legal, moral, ethical and ripple effects of surviving a violent confrontation.
Also covered are the defenses against the most common attacks on both genders using the 5 Principles of Physical Retaliation (aka as the notorious 'Shredder') including but not limited to shoves, grabs, tackles, sucker punches, pinned to the ground, mounted, bear hugs, chokes, hair pulls, and other aggravated assaults.
