The ABC’s Of Personal Safety From A Security And Self Defense Specialist

September 23, 2010


The ABC’s of Personal Security and Self Defense
Conflict Resolution – Using Brains Over Brawn

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 SELF PROTECTION 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

Breathe
– 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
– Say 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

Sensational Sound-bytes Not Always Best Self-Defense Advice

April 22, 2010

Women’s Self Defense Trojan Horse
Part V

In my 25+ year observation of the self-defense industry is that it is steeped in politics. From angry feminism, to the old boys network, the battle lines have been drawn by extremism and characterized much of the industry with it. It’s got as many nuts as a Whole Foods store. I’ve seen brilliance on both sides but it is difficult to wade through the opinions and rhetoric some times to get to the good information.

Hopefully the qualified voices in the middle won’t be drowned out by the venomous comments and political agenda of the extremists. Can we get to the meat of the message despite the messenger?

Some are martial artists with the agenda of perpetuating their particular style. Others are vicarious celebrity seekers believing they have the holy grail of ultimate techniques they piece-mealed together from a few lessons, books, tv or video in their garage and back yard. Yet others are academics with the ability to persuade but never made it out of the lab. Don’t we all have common ground?

My aim is to encourage thoughtful and respectful discussion and a cooperative effort to share and promote accurate life saving information; to build more peaceful lives, family and communities. Overly Utopian some might say, but I believe it’s possible.

One of the ways I’ve learned to keep my team honest and humble is to continual research, study and test our theories. We are constantly seeking better ways to do things and new ways to validate or invalidate claims. Perhaps this is why our clients have come to trust and value our recommendations and methods over the years.

I dream of a day when we can unilaterally rise above the politics of our personalities and unite for the common good and build better communities. Who’s with me?

Some Reports and Self-Defense Information Can Be Harmful

April 22, 2010

Part IV

Can some Reports and Self Defense Information Can Be Harmful?

Myth: Something is better than nothing…
FALSE: Not when it’s false or interferes with natural survival instincts, denial of critical information, causes risky hesitation or freezing up under stress

Misleading information and sensationalized reporting emphasizing the details of violence or perpetuating “helpless woman” myths can do more harm than good. Alarmist reports can have the unintended effect of scrambling one’s survival signals. Reinforce that with social ideas that you might be viewed as paranoid for taking action on an instinct or seen as rude and we have a continued formula for victimization of women and the vulnerable.

I remain amazed at little respect and value that the protection of human life receives from many in the public and media. Oddly, I see more media on protecting cute fuzzy animals than humans – especially women, the elderly and children. Is it just me?

The same goes for authentic experts devoting themselves to protecting others. [ie the internet spam email self-defense advice is better known to most individuals than Gavin de Becker and other qualified experts offering life-saving advice] I’ve been paid upwards of $15000 for teaching personal security as well as offering similar content in FREE SELF DEFENSE courses and had nobody show. Humbling, perplexing and bizarre!

In my experience, people seem to rarely respond to the need for self-defense training unless scared into action or persuaded through a compelling experience.

Sadly, the volume of misinformation is so great that the life saving information for women’s self-defense and personal safety seems to continue to be drown out.

Truth in Media
Whatever the cause I contend that a change in the media reporting could make a difference. I agree with my teacher Gavin de Becker and wish News Reporting and the press in general were held to the same standards of truth in advertising.

Instead of providing emotional pacifiers for people with overly simplified “self-defense checklists” and office water cooler advice read off the latest email spam campaign, we might see more meaningful progress in protecting people through learning effective personal security self-defense strategies. This is difficult to do with lies, myths, distortions and inaccurate information.

When I served in Military Intelligence for a Special Forces reserve unit, I learned that the decisions of Command leadership were only as good as the intelligence and information they were provided. One of the early lessons we learned as analysts was to separate fact from opinion and render qualified, objective recommendations. Once the facts were reported, we might be asked to render an informed opinion. The two were always clearly distinguished from each other.

I wish the same were true of the media. More in the next article.

The Women’s Self Defense Boogeyman Lives On

April 22, 2010

Women’s Self-Defense Trojan Horse
Part III

The boogeyman jumping out of the bushes and getting women from behind is still grabbing headlines while scores of women and children suffer at the hands of loved ones in their homes.

Why this fascination with the myth of so-called “unpredictable violence”? Perhaps it has something to do with our very human nature of enjoying drama and vicarious adventure and flirtation with danger. Perhaps it is a deep-seated fascination with the idea of “I’m glad it wasn’t me”. The fact is that each of us can and do predict behavior based on information we extract from our environment. In my professional opinion, the key to making it useful for survival is knowing what to look for, when to look for it and how to act on it.

Be Encouraged
People protect themselves successfully every day. Yet it is usually the failed attempts that make the news, offering us news consumers little to apply other than the anxiety pumped out from the sensationalized words, images and hopeless, distorted or misguided attitudes. A powerful and valuable skill that can convert this information into useful self-defense and personal security application is learning what to pay attention to – such as what worked, as well as what failed.

While not a psychologist or sociologist, I have taught self-defense, personal security, military, law enforcement and bodyguards for my entire professional life. [If experiencing a criminal attack, I wouldn’t want a clinical psychologist by my side. I’d rather have a person equipped with what Gavin and my company teach.]

Alarmist Media Self-Defense Myths Strike Again

April 22, 2010

Women’t Self-Defense Trojan Horse
Part II

Reporter:

“Abducted in daylight outside a Target store and killed, Kelsey Smiths story could have been any womans story. Some [insert name of area here] are taking steps tonight to make sure it doesn’t happen to them.” -reporter on local news

Queue the flirtatious local Karate instructor and self proclaimed self-defense expert and 22nd Degree Black Belt in Hoo Flung Pooh. [Or the deep voiced tough chick who looks like she can play for the NFL] While often well intentioned, advice like this is often not only incorrect, but can be dangerous.

They sell ads and captivate viewers attention, but are they really presenting the facts? Should the media be shamed for profiteering on the deaths of women with tragic stories like this? Is it a public service when reports distort the truth and create unnecessary, and potentially dangerous, anxiety for the news audience?

The fact is that it couldn’t just happen to any of us. The context has to be just right in order for the crime to take place. It presumes too much in claiming, “It could be any womans story” and leaves no room for reality.

How many factors must be aligned in order for the crime to take place? Let’s see… A criminal with motive, opportunity, intent, ability, at the right timeline, in the precise location with adequate distance, and numerous other factors. No mention of these critical survival factors and requirements for crime. Just more sensational headlines to grab attention and raise anxiety of viewers. I contend that it perpetuates a helpless or misinformed state of mind.

Token Woman Self Defense Class Testimonial:

“I think its important for women to learn self defense so they become more aware. Now I feel more confident and think I can protect myself if anything ever happened.”

It’s the same news report that has been on for years, repackaged with nothing substantively new or significantly helpful for truly protecting yourself and loved ones from the most prevalent dangers likely to be faced.

The old saying, SSDD [Same Stuff Different Day] is validated once again. The same failed and misguided self defense advice women have been hearing for decades that continues.

Women’s Self-Defense Trojan Horse

April 22, 2010


Self Defense Alarmists Perpetuate Women’s Safety and Attack Prevention Myths
Are you being mislead about the truth of self-defense for women?
Part I

LOCAL NEWS REPORTER:

“The key to self defense is to be aware of your surroundings.” “Be prepared for anything.” – recent and frequently presented news report

Well thank you Captain Obvious, we are now free to move about our busy lives. Make no mistake, this is no gift of knowledge; instead it may be a self-defense Trojan horse.

We’ve all heard it over and over again. Yet, has all this alarmist hype made a difference in personal safety? I would argue a resounding yes-in an unintended dangerous way. It has probably hurt as much or more than it has helped. I agree with experts, far beyond my education, that fear-based media reporting and scare tactics haven’t helped women be more safe, but it has made a difference in adding anxiety and stress to millions of men and women’s lives.

“It can happen to anyone, anywhere at any time.”
FALSE
It can only happen when the conditions are right.

My suggestion is to demand accurate information presented without the artificial stimulation of our primal survival centers of the brain in order to capture our attention for the sake of hawking sponsorship ads for facial soap.

Accurate information such as the fact that women are most at risk from physical harm from somebody they know would be more helpful. Education such as learning to listen and act on your God-given survival intuition saves lives.

Contrary to commonly held belief, fighting back and fight for your life may not always be the best tactic. The situation should dictate the response and the more of the right kind of training one has, the more options are available when needed.

The Gift of FEAR by Gavin de Becker


For those interested in more on the subject, I recommend reading best selling author Gavin de Beckers book The Gift of Fear or his other book on learning to discriminate on media information regarding safety called FEAR LESS.

Just because self defense advice is offered as a free gift, in the news or passed on in email from seemingly credible sources, it pays to do your due diligence – especially when it comes to protecting your life or the lives of those you love. The wrong information at a critical time might be the self-defense Trojan Horse that could lead to problems. Question and verify the self-defense sound-bytes.

God bless Gavin de Becker for helping make sense of it all and giving people the tools to sort out the non-sense from survival sense.
