AZ Neighbor California is Releasing up to 45,000 Prisoners. Self Defense Teacher Helps Phoenix Gain Peace of Mind with Self Defense

May 25, 2011


Arizona’s neighbor California is releasing 30,000 to 45,000 prisoners due to overcrowding. That leaves many Arizonan’s asking “How many of those criminals will flee to Arizona and the Phoenix area?” Security Specialist and veteran self defense trainer John Nottingham says, “If you are concerned with personal safety then this program will help you gain peace of mind. It makes a great gift to those you love and provides unconventional tools for self defense and personal protection.”

Before you think Nottingham is just a local self defense instructor, take a closer look. John Nottingham, or “Master Nottingham” as his students call him, has taught military, law enforcement and over 10,000 students in his career. He is not only a multiple Black Belt holder with a 6th Degree Master Black Belt, but is a bodyguard trainer and owner of a security and executive protection company. He served in a Special Forces Reserve Unit and was asked to teach Hand to Hand Combat to Airborne Rangers, US Army Green Berets and other elite forces as part of a limited experimental unit program in the early 90s. Nottingham has also trained and taken students to national and international events in Korea and China.

“Much of our self defense advice flies in the face of conventional training and teaching. We use an empowerment and educational model that makes the training different than most places. We’re certainly different than law enforcement in our advice. We train them- we should know.”

What Strategic Self Defense & Personal Protection is NOT:

o Krav Maga, Jeet Kune Do
o Corner Dojo Karate or Taekwondo
o Highly stylized or retrofit techniques
o Complex moves & martial arts techniques
o Easy to forget techniques requiring tons of time to practice
o Rehashed old info you already know
o Typical self defense advice like “be aware”
o A politically motivated “women’s empowerment” or “man hater” course disguised as self defense
o Guys with big egos scaring people into fighting
o Misguided sport fighting such as Muay Thai Kickboxing or Brazilian Jiu-jitsu

What SecuritySafe | StreetWise is:

o Simple, but little known, techniques to end a physical attack instantly
o Tactics, techniques you already know and can instantly use (We’ll show you know where & when to use them.)
o Bodyguard tactics to avoid, prevent, thwart, deter would-be attacks
o Advanced Threat Assessment tactics to recognize and derail dangerous situations
o Military grade physical intervention techniques and the appropriate use of violence
o Mental, physical and emotional tools to use under stress of an actual criminal attack
o Clever tricks to see attacks coming before you lose the advantage
o Criminal mindset and typical tricks, tools and trouble spots
o Professional, respectful treatment with measurable results
o When most trainers tell you to “fight” we’ll teach you to evacuate
o When most courses will tell you to prepare to fight, we’ll show you how to end it
o Designed so that almost anyone can do it – even if out of shape

“Most self defense instruction available to the public is well intentioned but we would argue often, misguided, unfounded, dangerous or just silly. The premise of our training is to use proven tactics for protection to give our clients peace of mind. We’ll show you techniques used to protect the President that can work to protect you and your family. Training gives options and reduces stress that not having training denies.” – John Nottingham

Nottingham must be doing something right considering that his programs have been used by agencies and individuals all over the world. His concepts and training programs have spun off numerous imitators and other trainers. If imitation is the greatest form of flattery, Nottingham should feel proud.

“This course is an introduction with sound principles for protection (self defense). You won’t earn a Black Belt in a seminar or learn to fight like Jet Li or for the UFC, however you can instantly apply some of these [self defense] strategies to improve the level of safety and security in which you live your daily life. Clients tell me that is worth it’s weight in gold.”, says Nottingham.


PART I
The first part of the course is taught in a casual and relaxing classroom setting complete with a multi-media presentation, statistics, insight into the criminal mind and bodyguard tactics. It even includes crime footage of actual assaults and a discussion and analysis of options.

PART II
The second part is hands on, step by step instruction without the ego or drill Sergeant attitude. Male and female instructors help clients learn simple effective they can instantly use the moment they walk out the door. Since these are moves they already know, they don’t have to worry about remembering them under duress, when it most counts.

The ABC’s of Personal Safety from a Security Self Defense Specialist

March 21, 2011

The ABC’s of Personal Safety from a Security Self Defense Specialist, Trainer and Speaker

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
