Self Defense Instructor Certification Course

SAFE International™ Self Defense

Toronto, ON, Canada, February 22, 2017 – SAFE International™ proudly offers a self-defense certification course for those interested in serving their community or workplace as a self-defense instructor.

Led by CEO and founder Christopher Roberts and Founder of Senshido International Richard Dimitri, this mobile self-defense instruction company has more than 25 years of self-protection coaching and training for ages 12 to 82. They have established SAFE International™ as Canada’s leader in the self-defense industry and are expanding their reputation across the border to the United States, Australia and Finland.

Since 1994, SAFE International™ has taught more than a quarter million people, reaching more students at schools, business associates and corporations every year. With a message that can save lives, SAFE International™ wants to spread these valuable lessons by certifying future instructors to join the cause. In a matter of five hours, instructors can equip a group of individuals in the fundamentals of self-defense, protecting themselves and those around them.

As an instructor, physical combative skills are taught that are based on human physiology and anatomy, not martial arts. Our teaching model is founded on the premise that when facing a real-life threat, one must act spontaneously. Instructors also teach their trainees the necessity of remaining mentally alert and exhibit situational awareness, no matter the setting. To ensure this, our training involves simulations of potential real-life scenarios to embed and establish the right attitude of response as second nature in our clients. Our SAFE International™ clients leave with a well-rounded education, possessing both the needed theoretical and the hands-on understanding, thanks to our knowledgeable trainers.

The SAFE International™ certification course is holistic and comprehensive, covering the basics of personal protection, as well as taking into consideration the legal, ethical, moral and psychological applications. This self-defense certification is applicable to all demographics, encompassing law enforcement personnel to middle school students to corporate businesspersons. Training modules cover actual real-life experiences, not only making the training applicable, but also memorable.

At SAFE International™, our curriculum is based on thousands of hours of experience, training and decades of research into criminology, behavioral psychology and violence and confrontation physiology. Those who were once deemed as vulnerable and weak are now equipped with the knowledge to deescalate scenarios and react to confrontation. Our trainers must have the leadership skill set to provide diverse and customized training courses to effectively reach each group of trainees.

SAFE International™ has put together several teaching modules, varying in levels of specific certification in order to give our instructors options and maintain affordability. Whether one is a novice or are experienced, the first module, SAFE International’s Core Curriculum, extensively covers the core fundamentals of the SAFE International™ self defense program, building a foundation for future certifications. In fact, the SAFE Core curriculum certification material is revised and updated every year – a consistent practice for the past 23 years – in an effort to maintain up-to-date information so as to corroborate with current reports of civilian violence.

Upon graduation, instructors will receive their official SAFE International™ certification, as well as marketing tools such as official SAFE International™ badges and banners. Our goal is to prepare our instructors scattered abroad so they have all the tools necessary to teach clients effectively.

SAFE International™ believes that self-defense is not a luxury – it should be ready information that anyone can acquire. In a world that has potential danger lurking around every corner, SAFE International™ is committed to training mothers, fathers, sisters, siblings and children, so they can all return safely home at the end of the day. At SAFE International™ our loyalty is first and foremost to our clients as they further impact their students, friends, families and communities.

Safe International offers First Nations Train the Trainer Self-Defense Classes for Aboriginal Protection

SAFE International™, a mobile self-defense business with certified partners in Canada, the US, and Australia, has developed a Self-Defense “Train the Trainer” program for First Nations to equip their communities with the training, knowledge, and information to protect themselves from violent victimization.

Lunenburg, ON, April 15, 2016 – SAFE International™, a mobile self-defense business with certified partners in Canada, the US, and Australia, has developed a Self-Defense “Train the Trainer” program for First Nations to equip their communities with the training, knowledge, and information to protect themselves from violent victimization. Since Aboriginal people are unfortunately twice as likely to experience assault, sexual assault, or robbery in their lifetime, SAFE International™ created a specific self defense certification that can be learned and implemented in the community to help people feel safer.

“Aboriginal people are almost twice as likely to be the victim of spousal violence as non-Aboriginals,” said Christopher Roberts, Founder and Instructor at SAFE International™. “Even worse, the homicide rate for an Aboriginal individual was almost seven-times higher than that of non-Aboriginals. At SAFE International™, it’s our goal to curb these alarming statistics and equip the community leaders with the training they need to protect their youth, teens, and adults.

The First Nations Self-Defense Classes are not Martial Arts programs, nor are they designed with complex techniques that take months to perfect. The self defense training focuses on the awareness and avoidance component of unexpected assault rather than just the physical part of self-defense. The ultimate goal is to train the Aboriginal people in identifying, avoiding, and removing themselves from situations that could turn violent.

“We know these are a serious and life-threatening situations we’re training people through,” said Roberts. “What’s so different about our courses is that we take a humor-based approach to sift through the honest and chilling information. We want our attendees to remember everything they were taught, and we believe the best way to do that is to make the entire course informational and fun at the same time.”

SAFE International intends to change the alarming statistics and ensure all Aboriginal people are free from harm. Our self defense “Train the Trainer” courses are currently available for communities in Canada and the United States.

SAFE International Launches Ottawa Women’s Self Defense Parties – Ottawa, ON Self Defense

SAFE International™ is the leading provider of mobile self-defense/personal protection training in Ottawa, Canada.

Ottawa, ON, December 23, 2014 (via Straight Line PR) — SAFE International ™ is the leading provider of mobile self-defense/personal protection training in Ottawa, Canada. SAFE International has taught more than 190,000 clients in the private, corporate and high school environments since 1994. SAFE International self defense Ottawa is expanding its seminar options to include women’s self defense parties in Ottawa, ON.

SAFE International quickly realized that women had completely different concerns, fears, and needs than males. Chris Roberts, Managing Director 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 women’s self defense 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 defense 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.

Forget Tupperware Parties!
Invite 6 to 8 of your friends for a few hours of fun, education and potentially life- saving instruction. Plan a meal, bbq, snacks, maybe some dessert! Be prepared for a unique Ottawa Women’s Self Defense experience! What has made SAFE International so popular is their unique method of teaching with humour and sharing of anecdotes. Get to experience their simulated attacks in scenario specific situations such as at the front door, the kitchen, the car, etc.

About SAFE International:
SAFE International has taught more than 190,000 clients including mothers, fathers, daughters, police officers, seniors, and people with disabilities.

First Nations Self-Defense, SAFE International Self Defense Certification For First Nations

SAFE International Self Defense experts have expanded their self-defense services to include First Nations self-defense certification for those living and working in the First Nation communities.

Toronto, Canada, December 08, 2014 – (Straight Line PR) – SAFE International Self Defense experts have expanded their self-defense services to include First Nations self-defense certification for those living and working in the First Nation communities.

1. Aboriginal people are two times more likely than non-Aboriginal people to experience a violent victimization such as an assault, sexual assault or robbery.

2. Those aged 15 to 34 years were nearly two and a half times more likely to experience a violent victimization compared to those who were 35 years and older.

3. Aboriginal people were almost twice as likely to be the victim of spousal violence as non-Aboriginals. The homicide rate for an Aboriginal individual was almost seven times higher than that for non-Aboriginal people.

SAFE International™ First Nations intends to change these statistics by ensuring that all Aboriginal people are free from harm and get home to their families daily… safe and sound. SAFE International has taken the first step to making this possible. Recently SAFE International certified some members from the Timiskaming First Nations so that they can instruct members of their community in how to better protect themselves. The SAFE™ philosophy of self-protection is unlike any other. This is not a martial arts program, nor is it designed with complicated techniques that require hours and hours of practice. For starters, the main focus is not even on the physical component of self defense, but rather, on the awareness and avoidance aspect. At SAFE International™ they believe in providing individuals with the skills that can help prevent situations from getting physical in the first place. Unfortunately this preferred outcome isn’t always possible so there is hands-on training as well, based on real-life scenarios.

Another thing that distinguishes the self-defense program for First Nation communities from so many others is the approach they take. All of their seminars are taught by incorporating a great deal of humour, yes, humour. Without a doubt self defense is a very serious topic, however, the instruction of it doesn’t have to be intimidating or frightening. If you think back to some of the previous lessons you learned, I bet you would find that the ones you recall, and retained the most knowledge from, were the ones taught in an entertaining and memorable way.

What are the benefits to becoming A SAFE Certified Instructor?

1. You will give the residents of your First Nation community the skills to feel, and be safer!

2. You will be able to teach participants how to recognize and avoid violence before it begins!

3. You will have the ability to teach others how to verbally de-escalate violence!
