Safe International is the leading provider of self defense training in Canada. It currently operates throughout Ontario and has expanded into Toronto with a focused marketing campaign to provide self defense to women, men, corporate and high school students. Safe International has delivered training to over one hundred thousand (100,000) people since 1994. The company is owned and managed by Chris Roberts who is a professional Teaching Director and self-defense instructor.
Workplace violence is on the rise. Company and organizational leaders have become increasingly concerned about protecting themselves and their staff. Safe International can address these needs by providing seminars tailored to specific job needs in any service industry ranging from real estate to health care to sales employees. Self protection is a necessity but it is now a form of insurance that will make your business more profitable and your employees more confident and secure.
Twenty-five percent of women will be assaulted during their lifetime and the highest risk group is teenage women. This is an alarming fact especially since over forty-seven percent of crime is unreported. Women will know their attacker fifty-seven percent of the time according to studies. Women lead busy lives and need easy to remember tactics that work in real-life situations. They also need training that fits into their busy schedules. Safe International's instructors understand the challenges that women face and offer classes, group seminars and private lessons to fit into anyone's schedule.
Safe International http://www.safeinternational.biz has traditionally focused on self defense instruction for high school students across Canada. It offers 1, 3, 4 or 5 hour courses which can be taught over consecutive days or all in one day depending upon the school/ organization's needs. They offer high school seminars customized to the class needs and expectations. Each session may include, discussion, role playing and a practical physical component. Our high school course covers the 3R's of Recognize, React, and Respond. These are real-world tactics that can be used by anyone against violent and stressful attacks.
Safe International has become Canada's most popular high school course for both boys and girls due to the fact that they don't teach martial arts, but rather a practical approach to personal safety with an emphasis on detecting and defusing potentially dangerous situations. All our instructors are certified through Safe International and have a unique ability to reach the students in an effective and memorable manner.
Mr. Roberts founded Safe International in 1994. He saw there was a lack of practical and effective self protection instruction for people. The high school courses became known for our instruction on how to deal with conflict before it starts rather than just deal with the physical side of self defense. While self protection is a serious topic, instructors have managed to develop a course that integrates humour while still getting a serious message across to students/clients. He has developed and taught specially tailored courses in the corporate environment, particularly to companies/organizations that are in higher risk professions including health care, real estate, sales people, etc.
He also trains/consults people privately on a weekly basis. Private clients include mothers, fathers, daughters, police officers, seniors, and people with disabilities. Tactics area taught and learned quickly. It is effective and invaluable to my clients. He constantly studies and implements new tactics when they fit my criteria of being simple but effective. If the tactic might save a life, he is interested. Our techniques are taught on the basis of Gross Motor movements.
