Do you have the proper training??

Posted: April 18, 2017

I think it’s true that almost every job in the world would be better if you didn’t have to deal with people while working! Most would agree that life would be easier if you didn’t have to deal with difficult people. Of course, that’s not going to happen. You’ll never get away from situations where you’re going to have to deal with a disgruntled customer, a professional road rager, or a screaming child.

So, what do we do about it? As a martial artist I’ve been trained in kicking and punching for 23 years now but sadly kicking people isn’t a socially acceptable way to deal with a verbal confrontation (nor is it legal)! Luckily, about 7 years ago I finally found the training I needed to deal with these kinds of situations.

It was amazing! Understanding how to deal with a verbal confrontation was the missing link in my self-defense training. This skill is sorely missing in our society today. We don’t train kids or adults on how to de-escalate confrontations. We tell them to “ignore” the problem which just doesn’t work.

In our FAST Defense training seminars we teach you how to de-escalate verbal confrontations so they don’t become physical assaults. (Of course we teach you how to deal with the situation if it does become physical as well.) Not only do we teach you what to do, we teach you how to do it and then we practice. We lead our student through scenarios where they have to utilize their newly learned skills and we make sure they’re successful!

So they question is…Why doesn’t everyone have this training? Why doesn’t everyone learn what to do with verbal confrontations? Because we all know they’re going to happen!

I want to help YOU and your family learn these skills. Check out what we have to offer with our FAST Defense Training at KendallvilleFASTDefense.com!
