The Georgia Bureau of Investigation Uniform Crime Report states, “that in the Workplace from 2013 to 2017 there were 701 Murders, 2,684 Rapes, 9,878 Robberies, and 23,258 Aggravated Assaults.” Also, did you know that there were 732 Domestic Violence Murders in Georgia from 2010 to 2017?

Unfortunately, today in America, we all have to be aware of the rising threat of Terrorism, the increasing acts of random street violence and the continuing escalation of crime in our cities, neighborhoods and even our schools. The latest FBI Uniform Crime Reporting statistics tell us “violent crime, murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault have each increased for the second year.” Of the total, rape is 7.7 percent, robbery is 26.6 percent, and aggravated assault is a staggering 64.3 percent. In fact, a violent crime occurs every 26.3 seconds. It’s easy to understand how Terrorism and crime could devastate the lives of individuals and families.

After many requests from individuals, organizations and corporations to develop an effective yet simple self-defense program for everyone, SAFE (Security Against Forced Encounters) was created to give virtually everyone a fighting chance to surprise their attacker and escape.

The SAFE Program techniques can be customized either for the individual or the organization. .For the purpose of our seminar, you will be shown 4 escape and 2 disarming maneuvers. They are simple yet extraordinarily effective. We’ll use the “Interactive“ teaching method for instruction, consisting of an explanation, demonstration and participation, because it’s the most effective method to learn the techniques.

In this session you will:

  • Gain awareness to the possibility of Workplace, Domestic, and Street Violence using statistics and case information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, National Safety Council, OSHA and the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation)
  • Learn simple, yet powerfully effective Self Defense Techniques that can be applied to most physical confrontations, surprising an assailant allowing the victim to escape
  • Engage and learn at least two techniques that will help them disarm or escape a “would be” attacker
