Self-defense & preventive safety

The aim of my work is to increase the level of one´s own personal security and to share a know-how in the field of prevention, behavioral strategies and the inevitable self-defense. Teaching is a combination of the technical self-defense system and the complex of analytical, psychological and behavioral know-how which can be applied in problem situation solving process.

Do you actually understand what is "self-defense"?

In order to understand the topic, let´s answer two questions first:

What is psychological defense and behavioral strategies?

What is psychological defense and behavioral strategies?

It is a way of communication and strategic behavior in emerging conflict situation with a risk of physical attack.

From the point of importance, the communication and behavior makes more than 80 % determining factor which is responsible for direction of the next course of the events: What can be either further „escalation & graduation“ into the attack or „de-escalation & pacification“ of problem situation.

We can say that these situations are very similar to a
„chess encounter“, where the know-how of psychological principles and behavioral strategies can modulate the problem situation outcome in favor of defender strongly.

What is technical self-defesne?

What is technical self-defesne?

An instant body-mind reaction to the physical attack.
Body & mind means, that defense and counter-attack movements have to be deeply incorporated in your cognitive and executive brain functions and thus in your body movements and bio-mechanics.

To give an example, we can say it is similar when you ride a bicycle. Once you know it, you don´t think about it – you do it. But it is also similar when you play a football match: You do it, but while you play you analyse, think, create an instant strategy, decide and move.

Self-defense reaction happens in milliseconds, the whole encounter normally takes just a few second interval.

What are the essential bases of personal security?

Two principal pillars:

1. Lectures on psychology, prevention and conflict resolution

1. Lectures on psychology, prevention and conflict resolution

An important complex of know-how what one have to be aware in a rising problem situation with the potential of attack.

Know-how includes:
a) an analysis of the problem situation,
b) regulation of the stress response,
c) strategies for preventing the conflict / strategies for conflict resolution,
d) verbal & non-verbal communication – therefore a dealing manners, behavioral principles and the essential body language,
e) general prevention and prudence.

The aim of this part is to gain an essential understanding of problematic situations, their various circumstances and factors one needs to take into account in a very short instant. Having this knowledge increases the chances of making the right decisions and taking the right actions based on current circumstances in a particular problem situation.

2. System of technical self-defense (level 1-5 )

2. System of technical self-defense (level 1-5 )

The use the functional self-defense and combat principles as the inevitable or last option of solving the conflict situation. Self-defense system 1–5

„System SELF-DEFENSE 1“ is a training system of technical self-defense designed for public & novices. Methodology of teaching have been created for those who have no previous experience of self-defense or martial art training. Systematic, clear and comprehensible teaching is tailored just for beginners and teaches the quality basics of the effective self-defense against the most frequent types of threats and attacks (grips, holdings, strikes, attacks from behind..). The aim of the training is to teach the „body – mind complex“ the basic defensive principles, and thus increase the ability of an adequate defense response in situations of physical threat. This course gives you a quality basics and could be seen also as a very good threshold experience into further martial art or self-defense training.

Trainings in SELF-DEFENSE 2 – 5 include more advanced and highly advanced skill practise of self-defense and combat principles, aiming to build the effective capacity of adequate self-defense and a „body – mind“ action against threatening situations. These trainings are open to the graduates of the basic course SELF-DEFENSE 1 and also for the trainees with previous martial arts experience.
