What is SAFE, translated means Self, Aware, Fend and
Escape, or could read Self, Action, Fight and Escape, depending on the
situation you could find yourself in.
SAFE is a five week training programme designed to take a
person through the four approaches of self-defence. Each weekly training
session is accumulative with the skills learnt added to the following training
session thus developing a broad but simple effective system of self -defence.
Self-defence has to be simple to work, complex’s
multi-dimensional moves are far too difficult to execute and would require regular
training to remember them, and almost impossible for an untrained person to
perform. The SAFE programme is a no fuss approach to learning. From the very
first training session you will be taught basic techniques, strikes and parries
coupled with footwork and correct distancing. Also during each training session
time is given to group discussions, enabling you to fully understand how each
technique is used and more importantly when how.
SAFE are hands on training programme making use of
training equipment giving the person a real sense of how to develop power which
also builds self-awareness confidence thus enabling them to be better prepared
in real life situations.
So who would benefit from the SAFE training course? Everyone
who attends one of the courses will get a better understanding of their
weakness and strengths, from a child to an adult, novice to a student of
martial arts. Remember this is a no nonsense tried and tested approach,
incorporating all the necessary skills
and techniques packaged into a simple effective training programme.
The child’s programme which also includes anti Bullying is
designed to work in a situation that a child may find them likely to be caught
up in, as well as armed with response techniques that a child will understand
and can easily use. It’s Important that children stay safe and any techniques
taught have to be safely used.
The Adults training programme takes into account the most likely
self-defence situation that a person could find themselves involved in, but
within the training session other important points will arise. These important
points will be raised by the students within the training session as the lesson
unfolds; different scenarios require the student to adapt techniques
taught. This exploration of changing
circumstances within a self-defence situation is a key point in the Safe
Programme; the student learns to apply techniques from random attacks.
A person finding themselves in a situation and having no
choice but to act when confronted by acts of aggression will find the
information and training within the safe programme invaluable. Also within the
SAFE programme you will find improvements in health, fitness and coordination
