DESCRIPTION & METHODOLOGY
During our workshop, participants will go through three training stages:
The foundation level teaches basic techniques to counter an assault. This level is context-specific. For example, if you were held by the wrist you use technique A. If you are being strangled from the front you would use technique B…etc.
The first stage will cover these techniques to enable participants to better understand what are the most common ways and techniques that an attacker will use.
|Hand grabs:||Chokes / strangle:||Other grabs/chokes:|
|Same hand grab||Single front choke||Bear hug|
|Opposite hand grab||Double front choke||Hair grab|
|Double hand grab||Strangle from behind||Shirt grab|
|Double hand grab 2nd position||Strangle from behind 2nd position||Shirt grab 2nd position|
|Behind double hand grab||Neck lock||Shirt grab 3rd position|
Once participants have learned all of the above techniques they will be able to advance to the 2nd stage.
Here, we place more emphasis on psychological and emotional preparation that is needed in order to calmly face these types of encounters.
Practicing the techniques alone is not enough, participants need to be mentally and emotionally prepared and react accordingly when faced with danger, during an attack our emotions tend to go out of control. To avoid that, we will put participants through stages of psychological and emotional scenarios to prepare them.
Participants are now ready to learn and practice Stage 1 and Stage 2 techniques while in motion. To illustrate, participants will be given scenarios to practice how to escape from a grab of an attacker while being pulled down.
Apart from the above-mentioned techniques, participants will be given tips on the do’s and don’ts of some everyday occurrences, for example:
- Safety for your home, and neighborhood and also what do you do if someone breaks into your home.
- Online safety, bank safety, mobile phone safety (Current cybercrime techniques, Bank scams, and also current mobile phone scams)
- Public place safety( e.g. how to identify 2-way mirrors in public toilets especially for women and also how to identify potential threats in public spaces)
- Safety in public (e.g.when you get in a taxi, elevator while jogging or walking)
- Personal belongings(e.g. how do you carry your handbag, wallet, laptop bag)
- Driving (e.g. how should you park your car and why? what are the current car theft techniques?)
- What do you do if you are attacked?
- What do you do if you are witnessing a crime?
We would like to emphasize that our techniques require NO punching or kicking
