When an assailant presents a grave threat, do you know how to protect yourself?
Lately, series of unfortunate incidents have also brought to attention the high priority and need for safety and protection against gender based crimes. Each of us are aware that working women face maximum exposure to gender based crimes outside our homes, while commuting to work, and at work places.
Dr.Manmohan Singh, Hon'ble. Prime Minister of India himself, very recently observed that ‘while more women are now joining the formal economy as a result, a corollary of these developments has been the heightened risk to their safety and security’. The recent passing of the amended Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Bill also highlights this issue.
While we clamor for increased policing, legislation, etc., when an assailant presents a grave, immediate threat, basic awareness on essential safety and self-defense measures is what we will need to protect ourselves.
Survival Instincts, the first and only authorized provider in India of American Red Cross health and training programs - the world’s most respected and recognized safety training agency are conducting a ‘need of the hour’ program which is the “Smart Self Defense Workshop” for Women. This program focuses on essential safety measures to ‘avoid, deter and diffuse’ dangerous situations.
Should an unavoidable physical confrontation take place, simple self defense techniques can help the victim disengage even a physically larger aggressor (to establish an escape route) as well as dominate a confrontation if needed. The focus is therefore on protecting yourself and not necessarily on winning a fight against a larger aggressor/ or aggressors. Therefore, this workshop is for women who may not have the time, resources nor the physical strength to learn martial arts to defend oneself. It is for the regular women.
Survival Instincts has provided survival training for various units of the Indian Army and Navy, National Cadet Corps, and first aid training for the Indian Red Cross. It has also conducted workshops for leading education institutions such as Ethiraj College, Madras University, Stella Maris College, Women’s Christian College, Centre for Women’s Studies, and for numerous organisations in the hospitality, banking and insurance, IT/BPO, and manufacturing industries.
What can you learn?
The Workshop is an actionable program, that it directly empowers women to protect themselves from gender based crime and assault. It certainly helps to improve general awareness at home, workplace and while commuting
