Due to the nature of their profession, educators face many real dangers on a daily basis and often find themselves at risk due to the following circumstances:
- Extended work hours, often commuting to and from work in the dark
- Working in isolated classrooms after school hours
- Attending extra mural activities
- Locking up after school functions
- The increase in reports of learners violently attacking teachers
The educator’s self – defence programme reduces the likelihood of becoming a victim by learning violence awareness and prevention strategies. Educators feel empowered after completing the programme and feel safer in the school
Delivered in a fun and safe environment, for many educators this is the first time they get the opportunity to role play potentially harmful everyday situations, threats and hostile attacks.
The benefits to this type of training is immeasurable, arming them with a mental blueprint on ways to respond, deter and defend themselves for life.
Experience is the best measure of how you will respond in any situation, therefore in selfdefence, the best experience is to role play certain role play scenarios in a safe environment.
Based on instinctive behavioral responses the educators are guided through scenarios for:
Being aware of their environment, surroundings and instincts
Being alert and safe on public transport or while driving, at social games, events, travelling or while out at night
Understanding passive assertive behaviour verses passive aggressive responses to deter a potentially hostile situation and knowing your legal rights
Understanding the psychology of fear and adrenaline and how to prevent yourself from “freezing in the moment”
Knowing how to use your size to your advantage, learning “critical hit points “to stop any size attacker
Preparing a personal safety plan
Learning self-defence is just plain smart and essential for all educators. Skills for life!
