Course content\ for the Ethical Escape training course:

..............................................................................................................................................................

A 2-day course for 6-16 people.
(1-day version also available.)

 
..............................................................................................................................................................


Background and Aims:

Physical techniques should be regarded as the last resort, so all the techniques taught on this course are designed to fulfill three criteria:

1. They strive to maintain the dignity of both the aggressor and the professional

2. They aim not to encourage future episodes of aggression (e.g. 'revenge')

3. They must be in line with the normal professional endeavour of maintaining a good relationship with others.

..............................................................................................................................................................


Who should attend:

This course is relevant to everyone who believes they may be at risk of physical attack. The techniques taught are defensive techniques and therefore appropriate for a very wide audience. They are also techniques which strive to retain the dignity of all concerned.

..............................................................................................................................................................



In 2-days you will cover a great deal:

In two days you will learn a small number of techniques so thoroughly that you can apply them in a wide range of situations. You will also have a videotape of the methods covered, for later reference.

Being violently attacked is of course a very frightening experience. Even reading the situations that happen is disturbing to many people. Nevertheless you probably want to know what is covered on the course. In addition to those covered below you may bring up specific worries of your own:

What to do if someone:

•  is holding your clothes and threatening you.
•  is holding or pulling your hair.
•  is holding or pulling your earring.
•  Is strangling you, either standing up or on the floor.
•  puts their arm around your neck from behind, or squeezes or worse still puts you in
   a 'side
•  
head chancery'
•  is biting or scratching you, or endeavouring to do so.
•  gives you a 'bear hug' or squeezes your very tightly.
•  grabs hold of your head, pushes it down and tries to knee you in the face.
•  tries to head-butt you
•  Or runs towards you with the intention of hitting you.
•  tries to kick or punch.
•  uses a chair etc. as a weapon.
•  Is throwing things at you.

This is mainly a physical, practical course, but there is specific reference to ethical and legal considerations, with special reference to young, old and physically disabled.

To a degree this course will also cover the warning signs of violence, what the body buffer zones are and how they are relevant, and non-confrontational positioning. It meshes with other zeroaggression courses.

..............................................................................................................................................................

Note 1:  This is a physical course and sponsors must provide ample room for 8 pairs to move around freely.

Note 2:  An annual 1-day refresher course is also available for £1500 + VAT.

1.  Participate in this course

We come to your organisation and train a group of 6-16 people for an all-inclusive fee, so you need to inform your training manager about the course, and see if they will commission it in.
