Imagine if you will, a system of police defensive tactics that does not rely upon perfect technique or constant training, doesn’t require you to be skilful, powerful or fit and suits women and men alike. It is easily taught, easily mastered, easily remembered, easy to use under stress, effective and is lawfully justifiable. Unlike martial arts, this system of defensive tactics has been designed by police officers, for police officers.
It works because it relies upon natural body actions and gross motor skills that target vulnerable parts of the body. It is tested in reality based policing scenarios that provide context that allows the officer to pressure test themselves. This in turn provides confidence in themselves and the techniques.
It is also of immense fun, an aspect often missed in training. We want to get more women more involved in the conversation of defensive tactics; therefore, we have put this course together to train a cadre of female instructors because we believe the best way to inspire women is for women to lead the way.
The course is mainly practical and will seek to teach the delegates the self-defence system as well as inform them of the theories of combat.
