SAFE International Corporate Safety Training Seminars/Ottawa self defense

SAFE International teaches that Recognizing and Avoiding dangerous situations is always the top priority. SAFE International instructors will address the daily routines and the risks that employees encounter in their daily jobs. Through role playing and discussion, participants will learn how to take common sense measures to reduce the risk of becoming a victim. The knowledge they gain can be applied to all aspects of their profession - direct sales, interacting with customers and fellow employees, travel and other work related transactions.

Clients are taught how to recognize different forms of verbal abuse, and how to defuse in order to resolve conflict without violence.  Clients participate in verbal drills specific to their job related challenges. It is through these reality based drills that your employees will develop the confidence to handle various forms of abuse, without the need to be physical, while also preparing oneself in the event that it does. These verbal exercises can be particularly valuable when one might find themselves in an uncomfortable and potentially life threatening situation - entertaining clients, traveling, employee differences, leaving late at night by car, taxi or public transit, walking home, etc. SAFE International believes that not only is self protection a necessity, but it is now a form of insurance that will make your business more profitable and your employees more confident and secure.

The second phase of a SAFE International Corporate Safety Course is the physical aspect which addresses how to React and Respond in the event that conflict becomes physical. Participants are taught basic, gross motor self defense skills meant to help one get away safely and as quick as possible. The principles of their teachings are based on how to react instinctively without having to think about what to do. This is not martial arts, but rather, real skills meant for real life scenarios. SAFE International is a complete course covering everything from A to Z in corporate safety training. SAFE International addresses the emotional, psychological, verbal and physical segments of violence in today’s world.

Chris Roberts, CEO of SAFE International also trains/consults people privately on a weekly basis. Private clients include mothers, fathers, daughters, police officers, seniors, and people with disabilities. Mr. Roberts constantly studies and implements new tactics when they his criteria of being simple but effective. If the tactic might save a life, he is interested.

Bike Paris Roubaix One Day and be a VIP at the Pro Race the Next! announces their bike Paris Roubaix itinerary for 2011 in conjunction with their Tour de France tours.

Parker, CO, January 27, 2011 -- announces their bike Paris Roubaix itinerary for 2011 in conjunction with their Tour de France tours. This short but exclusive program is an experience of a lifetime. Cyclists experience riding the most famous of the Spring Classic routes including the sections of cobblestones that have taken their toll on many of the most legendary names in cycling over the years. In a group with ten other avid cyclists and two exceptional guides, travelers will experience an intimate tour from Paris to Roubaix, while enjoying access to the pros, backstage media areas, and the finish line, as well as their own hotel room.

After riding the amateur event, the next day cyclists get a VIP backstage experience at the pro stage; there is no better way to go! We arrive in Paris and warm up briefly before the big ride, and then you can relax in style on Sunday: see the sign in ceremony, be among the pros as they come to sign in and go behind the race lines to see the race start including a VIP brunch with other cycling dignitaries. Following the start cyclists will go out ahead of the pro field and caravan to arrive at the finish line in advance. At the finish they have special VIP access to watch the race develop on a big screen TV while enjoying snacks and be at the finish line VIP area for the arrival of the racers. Cyclists can enjoy some champagne with other cycling VIPs and then watch the awards.
