Lesson 1 - Summary

  

UNDERSTANDING SELF-DEFENCE 

 

OBJECTIVES

At the end of this lesson, the students will:

 

1. Be able to understand the objectives of this Self-Defence Course.

2. Be able to understand the Origin, History of Martial Arts and some world popular styles.

3. Be able to understand what is Self-Defence.

4. Be able to use practical prevention methods in personal safety.

5. Be able to practise easy & safe prevention in the home, car & safe keeping of valuables.

 

Objectives of this Course

The average Self-Defence course is no more than a grab-bag of clever techniques that often are difficult to perform and are easily forgotten.

 

Better and more intelligent courses are arranged systematically in a sensible and simple order.  Safety measures, personal security tips, what to do when the attacker is close or far away from you and what to do when someone is verbally threatening you.

 

All of these aspects must be covered in order to understand how to defend yourself against all types of violence and crime.

 

Most importantly we will encourage you to use your brain and avoid potentially violent situations by using very simple safety tips.

 

So what is Self-Defence?

It is in fact a means by which we can protect ourselves and our property or others from those who would and could do us harm.

 

It can also mean to avoid rather than to attack.

 

Self-Defence is a Survival Skill.  It is as necessary as a basic knowledge of first aid to water safety.

 

We all hope we don't have to use those skills but most would prefer to know something in case of emergency.

 

It may prevent an injury or even save a life.

 

You & Your Family are the most important asset.

 

 

Your Objective

Your objective is to prevent an assault from happening in the first place through personal safety precautions and physical security measures.

 

Even though you may have taken all possible precautions to prevent an assault, there are times when threats to your person may occur.

 

Here your aim is to get away safely.

 

Knowledge of the best Self-Defence techniques in the world cannot guarantee that students will be  able to defend themselves.

 

They may be physically competent but, when faced with real aggression and the possibility of injury, become unable to cope and therefore suffer as badly as the untrained victim.

 

There is a chance however that an effective response may be made.  For this alone, this course could prove worth while to you.

 

Our Objective

Throughout this course you will find many safety and avoidance techniques.

 

After completing this course the student will;

 

.  have more confidence

.  walk with less fear

.  be able to avoid dangerous situations

.  be able to avoid rape and other crime related situations

.  and much more.

 

Every lesson is sectioned with specific objectives.  Work through each lesson slowly and with care.

WOMEN CAN STOP RAPE

 

Knowledge is a Great Asset.....................

 

Our society is slowly changing.  Our Government and many other public and private groups have begun the task of informing men and women of all ages about the increase of violence in our community.

 

All of these organisations have the aim of making the public aware of these problems that are on a dramatic increase.

 

We are learning things like:

 

How to confront it.

How to deal with it.

Where one can turn for help, guidance and assistance.

 

Violence against men or women (even children) can be different in many ways, however the important factor is we are all regarded as human beings.

 

In today's ever changing world, if a woman is assaulted she cannot expect or depend on anyone to help her except really herself.

 

Victim behaviour is learned behaviour and this is not the most beneficial experience.

 

Attackers are more likely to pounce on people who appear tired, weak, fragile or vulnerable.

 

An attitude of confidence is very important. This means being verbally assertive and decisive.......

........... (as covered in Lesson 4).

 

An attacker will try and test you out and it is sometimes possible to talk him/her down...............

............ (as covered in Lesson 4).

 

'PREVENTION IS  YOUR BEST  FORM OF DEFENCE"

 

Women/men can make fundamental changes in themselves, both personal and property safety, that will enable to prevent and if necessary counter an attack on themselves, others or even make their home more secure.

 

(The above is covered in more detail in Lesson 1 and Lesson 9).

 

It is important for women and children and even men to have at least rudimentary skills in self defence. This is because it exposes them to potentially dangerous situations and gets them prepared for this kind of harassment in the real world.

 

(More of the above is covered in Lesson 5).

 

It is vital in today's society to learn the basics of survival.

 

Women can stop rape. They can do so by learning psychological and physical skills to fight back.

 

Self esteem, Very Important..............

 

The psychology of Self-Defence begins with a fundamental belief in your own worth as a human being.

 

Most women have been taught from childhood to be dependant, fragile, submissive, passive and think negatively about themselves.

 

Although some countries have a changing attitude, other countries regard the women's submissiveness and fragility as normal and important to their own culture.

 

Change the women and the country's culture changes. Most cultures will not accept change.

 

Lesson 3 - Summary

 

RAPE and VIOLENCE

 

OBJECTIVES

At the end of this lesson, the students will:

 

         Be able to understand the circumstances in which rape offences take place.

         Be able to understand what rape is, for what it is.

         Be able to understand what a hostile or power rapist is.

         Be able to take action and manage, when one is raped.

         Be able to seek and maintain required medical attention.

         Be able to report rape in a proper manner and seek appropriate help.

         Be able to understand their own feelings and cope better.

 

 

RAPE THREATENS EVERY WOMAN

 

Why?   Why Not!

In seeking to gain better insight into the circumstances in which rape offences take place, it is important to recognise that sexual assault is a very complex area.

 

Victims, police, sexual assault counsellors, various health care practitioners and the legal profession all have different perspectives and issues of concern in relation to rape.

 

For further information, reference material or research data, contact your State Police Headquarters in your country and State and they should connect you through to the appropriate department.

 

The Threat!

The threat of rape hangs over every female throughout her entire lifetime.

 

The magnitude of this threat is enormous, forcible rape is the fastest growing crime in the United States.

 

         Rape, "Date Rape", has become a new statement for forcible sex before, during or after a date.

         The realisation that a man can rape a woman and fully expect to get away with it may be startling.

 

The fact is that no more than five percent of reported rapes actually result in conviction.Rape has been recognised by law enforcement as one of the most under-reported of crimes.Think of how many more people would be robbing banks if less than five percent of all the banks' holdups - robberies resulted in conviction.

 

Rape is sometimes considered to be one of the worst types of crimes, however, it is often the victim who is made to feel as if she/he were the criminal or to blame. Do not forget some rapes can also involve men as victims. These prove to be much less reported happenings and often, if so, rather unbelievable.

 

 

Lesson 4 - Summary

 

PSYCHOLOGICAL AWARENESS & ASSESSMENT

 

OBJECTIVES

At the end of this lesson, the students will be able to:

 

1.   understand the meaning of Verbal Self Defence.

2.   negotiate calmly with an assailant.

3.   use skills in order to pacify a violent assailant.

4.   understand the meaning of Body Language.

5.   recognise warning signals from an assailant.

6.   use and balance verbal and non-verbal actions.

7.   avoid using double messages.

 

VERBAL SELF DEFENCE

With all my heart I hope that you are never a high school teacher faced by a student who outweighs you or is twice your size and has a knife at your throat:

 

         or a woman alone in a bedroom with a would-be rapist.

         or an elderly man facing a drunken punk in a dark alley.

         or at a party facing 3 drunk, out of control men.

         or a security guard facing a wild man with a shot gun pointing directly at you.

 

I can hope nothing like this ever happens to you but I cannot guarantee it.

 

The attempt to counter physical violence with Verbal Self Defence Techniques is definitely not recommended for beginners.

 

However if you find yourself trapped and you must do something..................

 

Then here are some suggestions:

 

Tips for You

.Most people determined on hurting you physically are more interested in seeing you in fear and hearing you plead for mercy than they are in the act of violence itself.

 

.If you show no emotion and don't appear to be either frightened or arrogant, you will keep them from achieving that goal.This should win you some time, as they keep trying to get you to show the terror that they want to see.

 

.It may be enough time for someone to come to your aid. It may also convince them to find somebody who is more fun to abuse than you are.

 

.Your goal is to keep the level of tension low, to keep your attacker from panicking - a major danger, however strange it may seem  -  and to win time.

 

Negotiate First

         Be as absolutely neutral as you possibly can.

         Do not blame.

         Do pacify him/her, whatever you do, calm him/her.

         Do not portray inner panic.

         Stay in a cool, calm state.

         Control your body language.

 

The above is rather easy for the trained expert.  That is why experts are sent to negotiate with persons who have shut themselves up in a building with hostages at gunpoint.

 

In a beginner's hands it may fail, but it is worth a try.

 

Fight Second

It is most assuredly safer than an attempt at physical violence, unless you number Kung Fu among your personal skills or have completed an effective Self Defence Course.

OFFICE SAFETY

 

Is the Office Safe?

People working in offices after a while begin to think of the workplace as a secure place, secure territory, although in fact it may not be.

 

Rapport or friendship with office workers-friends does not guarantee one against theft of personal possessions or freedom from assault, whether this happens from an outside intruder or even from a fellow worker.

 

Physical Safety in the Office

Physical assault in offices can occur in a number of places, such as toilets, restrooms, elevators, corridors, halls, foyers and many other isolated areas.

 

 

After Office Hours

A potentially dangerous situation arises when you work after hours, on holidays or weekends, especially if you are by yourself in the office or building.

 

 

SAFETY FOR NURSES

Precautions for Nurses

Women (and men) working in helping or service oriented career fields need to take special precautions to prevent potential assault.

 

Nurses as a group are more vulnerable to assault than the average female.

 

SAFETY FOR FLIGHT ATTENDANTS

Be Safe

The nature and the various duties of male and female flight attendants place them in  high-risk category.

 

 

SAFETY FOR SOCIAL WORKERS

Care for Yourself

Social Workers, Mental Health Workers and similar Health Care Professionals often meet with patients who are under various amounts of stress and a great deal of pressure.
