Self Defense Tips – The ABC’s of Personal Safety and Security for Personal Protection

Self defense is something everyone knows that we should learn, yet few actually do. Rather than use a few self defense or fighting tips as an emotional pacifier, it is important to test and apply what you think you know. It is through this process that self defense competence is built. With self defense competence comes personal protection and security confidence. A good self defense instructor will ad to your peace of mind and help you use your innate survival signals and skills to bring to bear in protecting yourself and/or the ones you love.
When you learn to defend yourself you are less likely to have to because:

1. You tend to avoid potentially dangerous situations because you recognize them earlier
2. You are more likely to trust your intuition/gut feelings therefore act on them
3. Project more confidence which often removes you from the victim profile. Criminals like easy targets, not difficult ones.

HERE ARE A FEW OF OUR ABC’s OF PERSONAL PROTECTION – SELF DEFENSE STRATEGIES FOR PERSONAL SECURITY

Alert to Avoid Potentially Dangerous Situations
– Knowledge and Awareness of dangerous situations and how criminals operate
– Trusting instincts and Acting on intuition
Always observe safe habits and practices – Remember, we are always building habits – so practice good ones

Breathe and Be Calm by Believing you have options
– Belly Breath with Backpressure on exhale helps manage stress, adrenaline and fear
Be looking for opportunities, weapons, barriers, escape routes and targets
Be prepared with training and a plan but Be flexible

Communicate with Confidence and Commit
Clearly say and demonstrate directly what you mean and mean what you say
Change the Context of any situation you feel might lead to a violent encounter
Commit to your plan and execute with intensity

Distance
Whenever you increase distance, you increase time and options and usually deny the targets

Eyes on targets and Escape options
Eyes, neck, groin, knees, Everything’s a weapon, Escape

Dan “The Beast” Severn to teach Illinois Police and Security

February 1, 2010

Dan THE BEAST Severn UFC and WWE Champion

UFC Champion and wrestling legend Dan Severn will conduct Modern MMA “The Dangerzone: Defensive Tactics” (DT) training for law enforcement including Police, Security and those in protective services for two days in Antioch Illinois.

According to co-host and DT Instructor John Nottingham, “The objective is to familiarize law enforcement with the increasingly popular techniques that suspects may be using. It is imperative for officer survival and to offer effective arrest and control options that are functional even under stress. Protectors like security and law enforcement’s training and tactics need to evolve as criminal tactics do. ”

The Police training event is underwritten by Nottingham Sword & Shield Security and hosted at VanPatten’s USA Martial Arts of Antioch and provided free to officers and security professionals.

Nottingham continues, “I come from a military, martial arts and bodyguard background. We believe that more training means more options; in particular, not having to use lethal force like the firearm. That’s specifically why our training is infused with bodyguard diffusion and escort techniques for resistive suspects, stress and fear management, confidence building and stress inoculation. Proper use of force is taught at every level to avoid costly liability to the department and ultimately, taxpayers. Ultimately, our goal is to equip officers to be able to go home safe to their families.”
MMA, or MIXED MARTIAL ARTS like featured on popular Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) seminars will be open to the public for beginners to experienced individuals to learn directly from the UFC Champion. Dan is one of the few inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame with the likes of Randy Couture, Royce Gracie, Ken Shamrock, Mark Coleman, and Chuck Liddell. Others may recognize him from his distinguished wrestling background including being an alternate to the Olympic Wrestling Team and a WWE Superstar. Contact USA Martial Arts for MMA seminar pricing.
