Why should I take this course?
Everyone should have some basic awareness and physical self defense skills. There are programs that are age appropriate. The more knowledge you have, the less vulnerable you will feel. The more confident you are, the less likely you are to become a victim.
I’ve never been attacked. Why do I need this course?
The best possible outcome is that it will never happen to you, but, there are no guarantees in life. Knowing how to be more aware will lessen your risk for future attacks.
It is better to be informed and aware than to be in denial or just rely on luck. It is far better to be prepared and have preventive skills than to have to take a course like this after something has already happened.
Am I too old to do this?
Of course not. Everyone, at every age can learn both physical skills and awareness skills that will enhance their safety and their lives. The more knowledge you have the better off you will be.
Is it going to be boring?
No way! Just because it’s a serious subject doesn’t mean we can’t have fun! It’s interactive, so participants will have opportunities to ask questions and get up and move around. The instructors make it interesting and the last thing we want is to be bored!
Once you have completed one of our courses, you will be both energized and educated. The Get REAL Safety Awareness Training is designed to be fun, informative and interactive.
Am I going to get hurt participating in this course?
Any type of impact can affect different people differently, so we take extensive measures to insure everyone’s comfort and safety. Everyone can participate to the extent of their own comfort levels. Even if you didn’t take part in the physical segments of the training, you would still be able to benefit from it.
Since you will be making contact with training equipment, there is always the possibility of getting some bumps and bruises, but the drills and exercises are designed specifically for women and their physical statures. In the event of an actual attack, the likelihood of physical harm would be much worse.
Will I learn things I can use right away?
Definitely. We have chosen techniques and designed this program to enable each participant to use what comes most naturally for them. The techniques are basic, yet effective. We want every single participant to leave with the confidence and the skills to better protect themselves right away.
Is it going to take a long time to learn?
No. Techniques are useless if you can’t use them. We want each person taking this course to walk away feeling more educated, more confident and more capable than when they came to us. The techniques taught in the Get REAL Safety Awareness Training program are designed to be simple, yet effective. No matter what your size, your age or your fitness level, you will be able to learn effective awareness and personal safety skills that you can use right away.
Does it cost a lot?
No. It is a very valuable program at a very reasonable price. The knowledge you gain will be with you forever.
Get REAL Safety Awareness Training can range from a “lunch and learn” type presentation, to single day courses, to multi-week courses. Corporate packages are also available. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info on what will best meet your needs.
Does it really work?
In short, yes. A physical confrontation is the final stage of self defense. Although we will focus some very effective techniques on this part of the course, that is not where a great deal of self defense skills lie. The awareness training in the Get REAL course is the most important part, we feel, in teaching women and girls to defend themselves. Having the confidence to speak up, the awareness skills to pay attention to what is going on around you and the ability to keep calm in stressful situations are three keys to preventing an attack.
Knowing effective personal safety skills in the event a situation does become a physical attack will better enable you to survive an attack.
