Weapons Self Defence Training and Lessons

Weapon attacks are unfortunately becoming more commonplace. Cash handling businesses, petrol stations, jewelry, fast food, and convenience stores are frequently targeted. Home invasions, carjacking and street crime make it essential you know what to do if you are in this type of situation as an individual, employee or customer. Weapons self defence training is essential to better manage what to do if you are threatened in an armed hold-up, whether it be a knife, syringe, club, firearm. You need a plan!

Understanding how weapons work, what the effective ranges are, and how to defend against them are important elements in Self Defence training. It is important to prepare for emergencies in advance of when threatened with weapons.

Some key concepts - Avoidance, Awareness, and Prevention

Avoiding or preventing an attack is very important. If you follow these simple guidelines, the chance you’ll ever be attacked is incredibly small:

  • Avoid dangerous places and people.
  • Don’t be a good target.
  • Be aware of your surroundings.
  • Do not argue, provoke, or allow a verbal conflict to escalate.
  • Escape or create distance if you feel threatened.
  • Evade a threat when you can’t completely escape.
  • Apply Self Defence techniques when it is required

Distance Is Prevention

Distance removes opportunity from the attacker’s equation. It can be used to avoid or escape (leaving, in the previous list of choices) from a potential attack. Maintaining a safe distance, such that a potential threat will need to take at least a few steps in order to reach you, is crucial.
