It is easy to take the “I know bad things happen, but not around here” approach to personal safety until something happens close to home. A convenience store in Texas was robbed the end of December, 2018. Local residents are in shock, and want to know what they can do to protect themselves. The security footage shows a man entering the store, holding the clerk at gun point, taking the money and exiting the store.
However, to a trained eye, the footage also shows about fifteen seconds of body language and pre-attack indicators from the suspect leading up to the actual robbery. Training your mind to recognize pre-attack indicators and body language is your first defense and paramount to personal safety. Missed indicators can take you from a “this doesn’t look good, let’s leave,” to an undesirable situation quickly.
Closing the Reactionary Gap: is a two day in-depth course providing a real life understanding of what your reactionary gap is, the human body’s internal and external response to fight or flight mode, an individual’s specific response, how to recover, the importance of training using naturally occurring tactics, core and external situational awareness, trusting intuition, reading body language, why reading body language is effective, and recognizing pre-attack indicators. Live scenarios with role players will be incorporated into each day of training to implement skills.
Students will need:
- Hydration and Snacks
- Eye protection
- Sturdy belt
- Closed toed shoes and attire appropriate for tactical training
All training levels are welcome at this event. Attendees with not be considered fully registered until payment has been received. NO refunds will be made after 30 days prior to training.
