Ottawa, ON, June 17, 2012 - (Straight Line PR) - Ottawa Self Defense, SAFE International
Announces Ottawa Women’s Summer Self Defense Parties.
SAFE International ™ is the leading provider of mobile self defense/personal protection training in
Ontario. SAFE International has taught more than 150,000 women in the private, corporate and
high school environments since 1994. SAFE International is expanding its seminar options to
include women’s summer self defense parties in Ottawa, ON.
SAFE International quickly realized that women had completely different concerns, fears, and
needs than males. Chris Roberts, CEO of SAFE International listened to their concerns and tailored
something that was not only educational, but also met their personal fears. Men have no idea
what women go through on an everyday basis from the stares and comments to the physical
gestures and advances.
One of the reasons that SAFE International enjoys teaching summer self defense for women
in Ottawa, is how receptive women are to the skills that the SAFE International instructors
provide. SAFE International teaches self defense concepts, rather than techniques. This allows
women to learn in a much shorter time. SAFE International always covers Awareness and
Avoidance strategies which are based on one's daily routines. We examine what an attacker looks
for, what an attacker wants and doesn't want in confrontation. One of the biggest topics we
explore is how most people are too polite, even when their intuition is telling them the complete
opposite. We cover the most common distraction techniques an attacker will use to gain an
advantage. We then move on to verbal strategies in the event that avoidance is no longer
possible. Rather than just teaching to yell at a potential attacker, we cover a few verbal strategies
based on the aggressor and the scenario. The third step is addressing the physical aspect of
Ottawa women’s self defense. We begin with the advantages of adopting a passive stance
rather than an aggressive stance. We only teach gross motor strikes due to the adrenal rush one
gets when they are in a highly stressful state such as an attack scenario. We teach a philosophy of
"Attack the Attacker" which reverses one from being the Prey, to that of being the
Predator. Another philosophy is to attack the head if all avoidance and verbal strategies have
failed. This is only 30 minutes into the physical training and you can see how the self defense
concepts are very effective. The self defence drills increase with intensity as the participants gain
more confidence. This is very important as you don't want to terrify your clients right from the
start. It is important to build rapport with your students and the results will be seen as the drills
progress. The following YouTube video shows how much can be learned in only 30 minutes of
women’s self defense instruction.
