Conflict Management & Risk Reduction Course
(An event hosted by the SSKA)
This course offers comprehensive awareness, advice and strategies to enable you to survive on the streets in a safer and more secure way. It offers valuable tips on your personal security both on the streets, at work & at home.
You will learn how to reduce the risk of being the victim of violence and if faced by such a situation how to manage it effectively.
Karate is a valuable tool to help defend you when attacked. However, there are no winners in a violent situation, itís just the degree by which you lose. Avoiding violence in the first place, or managing it downwards, is the primary objective.
Self-defence is a last resort and provides a window of opportunity to escape. Donít be forced into violence as your first option.
Do you know how your body reacts to conflict? Do you understand what Ďfearí is and how to use it positively? What physiological reactions is your attacker going through? Can you recognise warning and danger signs in people? Learn all of this and much more.
If you have to defend yourself, what will the law say? How much force can you use? Can you hit out first? If you want to understand the law on self-defence youíll get it on this event. Youíll even get to understand health and safety issues relating to violence in the workplace.
Your trainer will be an experienced and senior instructor with the SSKA.
