Weaponize-Your-Body Self Preservation/Threat Management

The Weaponize-Your-Body program offers a proven approach to teaching self-protection coaching. We equip our clients with a deep understanding of threat physiology and psychology as well as the physical skills needed to survive. It’s a practical, no-nonsense, easily learned primer to developing empty hand self-preservation skills. This course focuses not only on the physical techniques, but developing situational awareness, managing threat physiology and Verbal jiu-jitsu de-escalation techniques.

Our goal in the Weaponize-Your-Body program is to teach participants how to engage, mold, and apply their primal survival system to effectively neutralize an interpersonal violent threat.
To this end, all of our courses are grounded in four key components.

If someone is going to survive an interpersonal violent encounter, it is crucial that they understand what will happen to their body when faced with a threat. In this section of training we focus on the physiological changes that take place in an interpersonal violent experience, with tactics to help participants deal with those automatic changes.

People are typically not aware of their surroundings. There can be numerous reasons for this, from being glued to one’s smartphone in the civilian word, to the fog of the battlefield. In this section of training, we teach participants how to ensure that they are situationally aware, understand what that means, and how to both develop and deploy it as a skill.

Sometimes going hands on with a potential threat isn’t desirable. Depending on the situation, talking a potential human threat down, is a victory in of its self. In this section of training, we introduce participants to our COATS method of deescalation, and other strategies and tactics.

Focusing on high percentage, easily learned primal defense and offensive tactics, participants learn how to keep themselves physically safe. We offer a varied spectrum of physical force solutions – from a baseline approach designed to be deployed with participants who have no previous backgrounds in offensive/defensive physical tactics – to more advanced methods.
