“It is better to avoid than to run; better to run than to de-escalate; better to de-escalate than to fight; better to fight than to die. the very essence of self-defense is a thin list of things that might get you out alive when you are already screwed”.
– From “Meditations on Violence
”Hosted by: Rick Brumby Premier Kempo Karate 1122 10th St. Saint Cloud, FL 34769 (407)891-7828 – Saturday, October 22
INTRODUCTION TO VIOLENCE Is all about ambushes and thugs. It is the material I consider crucial at starting to adapt training to deal with violent emergencies. We’ll cover: The seven aspects of self-defense Efficient movement Self-defense law Adrenaline effects, including freezing Violence dynamics, the short course on criminals Counter assault and operant conditioning And some of the other cool stuff. Probably blindfolded infighting and leverage.
No one under 18 unless the parents contact me in advance. firstname.lastname@example.org Conflict Communications Is unlike any de-escalation program, out there.
- First of all, it recognizes that social issues, physical needs, absolute terror and just being a bastard all create specific and different kinds of conflict. What will calm down someone who is in fear of losing status will NOT calm down someone who needs money for drugs, and will backfire when you run into someone who just likes watching other people scream and beg.
- Second, ConCom seems to be the first effective taxonomy of conflict. You can identify problems and apply solutions right away. Third, ConCom centers on you. You can’t shriek at someone else to calm down. You must learn how to tell when older, more primitive and less effective behavior patterns have taken over. De-escalate yourself first.
