SAFE International Launches Ottawa Executive Self Defense Lessons– Ottawa, ON Self Defense

SAFE International is expanding its seminar options to include executive self defense lessons in Ottawa, ON.

Ottawa, ON, January 31, 2013 - (Straight Line PR) - Ottawa Self Defense, SAFE International Launches Ottawa Executive Self Defense Lessons.

SAFE International ™ is the leading provider of mobile self defense/personal protection training in Canada. SAFE International has taught more than 175,000 clients in the private, corporate and high school environments since 1994. SAFE International is expanding its seminar options to include executive self defense lessons in Ottawa, ON.

SAFE International realizes that busy executives don’t necessarily want to join a martial arts club, or have the time to take a public self defense seminar. SAFE International will provide their mobile self defense right in the office. This allows SAFE International instructors to tailor the course based on the specific needs and concerns of the client. Self defense training in the office allows the client to be completely relaxed and comfortable training even with their busy and hectic schedules.

One of the reasons that SAFE International enjoys teaching executive personal protection Ottawa, is how receptive men and women are to the skills that the SAFE International instructors provide. SAFE International teaches self defense concepts, rather than techniques. This allows the client to learn in a much shorter time. While some people have hours to dedicate to training, SAFE International can offer some basic, but effective self defense concepts in just a few hours.

SAFE International always covers Awareness and Avoidance strategies which are based on one's daily routines such as using elevators, car safety, home safety, plus much more.  We examine what an attacker looks for, what an attacker wants and doesn't want in confrontation. One of the biggest topics we explore is how most people are too polite, even when their intuition is telling them the complete opposite.  We cover the most common distraction techniques an attacker will use to gain an advantage such as asking for directions or the time. The next stage is verbal strategies in the event that avoidance is no longer possible.  Rather than just teaching to yell at a potential attacker, SAFE International covers a few verbal strategies based on the aggressor and the scenario.

The third step is addressing the physical aspect of Ottawa executive self defense lessons. Instructors begin with the advantages of adopting a passive stance rather than an aggressive stance.  SAFE teaches gross motor strikes due to the adrenal rush one gets when they are in a highly stressful state such as an attack scenario.  Complex skills are proven to be ineffective in the high stress of real violence. The main philosophy taught is to “Attack the Attacker" which reverses one from being the Prey, to that of being the Predator.

SAFE International does not teach martial arts, but rather, practical, easy to adopt and highly effective concepts. Ottawa Personal Protection for executives is available one on one or to a small group right at your location/office.

SAFE International has taught more than 175,000 clients including many in the corporate environment. To contact SAFE International and Chris Roberts to schedule your Self Defense lessons for executives, you can visit their main site at
