SAFE International Announces Launch of “SAFE International Self Defense Blog”

SAFE International Self Defense would like to announce the launch of their new blog, "SAFE International Self Defense Blog".

Toronto, ON, March 17, 2014 - (Straight Line PR)- SAFE International Self Defense would like to announce the launch of their new blog, "SAFE International Self Defense Blog". SAFE International is a leader in mobile personal protection/self defense instruction. They have taught more than 180,000 women since 1994. SAFE International specializes in women’s self defense parties, high school self defense, corporate self defense, as well as private self defense. What makes SAFE International so effective is that they don’t just teach the physical side of self defense but also the psychological and emotional sides.

What will you find on the self defense blog? SAFE International will be covering all aspects of women’s self defense. There will be articles on the most important topic, which is how to recognize and avoid potentially dangerous situations. There will be blogs on who an attacker chooses as their victim, and why they choose them. Have you ever wondered about how to handle specific self defense scenarios such as being attacked on an elevator? This will just be one of many self defense tips will be offered on. Other topics will include car safety, home safety, distraction techniques an attacker will use, as well as how being too polite can be dangerous, plus much, much more.

Also included in the self defense blog, will be intelligent verbal strategies to deal with potential violence. There is no one solution to deal with violence and this is very true in regards to verbally dealing with an attacker or aggressive person. Many blogs will deal with the unique safety concerns of particular professions such as health care workers, real estate agents, plus others who deal with the public. But most importantly we will offer tips and advice to the average person who may face violence.

And for many most importantly, the physical self defense lessons will be discussed on the Self Defense Blog. Many of the articles will explore the differences between karate/martial arts and real world violence. You will be given tips and YouTube videos that will explain and demonstrate some basic, but highly effective self defense concepts.

SAFE International is gaining world-wide recognition for their self defense philosophies and the SAFE International Self Defense Blog is a great way to explore these philosophies if you never get the chance to participate in one of their seminars.
