We no longer live in a safe society. On a daily basis, either in the media or first hand from people we know, we hear about break-ins, theft, robbery, assaults, rape, attacks and other violent crimes. Participants will learn practical advice, tips and techniques to help them protect themselves in their daily lives in a variety of situations, including travelling at home and abroad, as well as daily situations such as going to and from the office. The first half hour of this workshop is a talk on protection tips while the remainder of the class is a hands-on learning experience. All participants should come in comfortable clothing, prepared for an active session. Everyone is encouraged to have a towel and water as well.
