It is the use of reasonable force to protect oneself or members of the family from bodily harm from the attack of an aggressor, if the defender has reason to believe he/she/they is/are in danger.
Why You Need to Protect Yourself. Life is a gift. It’s also unpredictable. Every human-being has the unchallengeable right to protect themselves. Self-defence helps to prepare you for unexpected situations and also helps develop increased mental and physical health.
The corporate self-defence group training covers a comprehensive spectrum, tailored to convey realistically in a short period of time to achieve the required level of competence.
Employees who are capable of protecting themselves are more confident, which directly increases their work performance. Untrained individuals tend to avoid situations where they are required to be open to new situations and people. Self-defence builds overall confidence, increase self-esteem, and a greater sense of leadership presence. Confident people tend to be more able to overcome obstacles and get the job done.
People who feel safer are less prone to the effects of stress, which is the key factor in many illnesses and a leading cause of on-the-job accidents. The increased confidence, coupled with an increased sense of calm, can mean a long-term cost savings for an employer. Less stress means less stress-related illnesses, less lost time due to illness, fewer accidents, and higher productivity. Without the burden of stress-related illnesses, employees are more energetic, quick-thinking, and relaxed – making them more productive members of your organization.
Self-defence training has been shown to improve employee discipline, morale and enhance teamwork. Feelings of weakness, social anxiety, and concern for one’s safety, by any one individual, can cause stress on an entire employee group. Many employees live in fear of making the wrong decisions, some care little for their job – expecting to be paid for time rather than productivity – and others suffer from poor interpersonal skills.
Give your employees the advantage of knowing safety and security with this well planned Corporate Self-Defence class.
In our work within a Neighbourhood Watch, we are often exposed to various elements and situations. Encountering a situation where we are confronted with the need to utilise force to neutralise a situation in the shortest amount of time is one that can occur when we least expect it.
For this reason, we are inviting members of all NHW to attend a basic Self-Defence course presented by an expert in this field – Shareef Jantjies. Here you will gain valuable insight, training and knowledge on how to effectively protect yourself in such situations.
