A.I.M. Academy Instructors, Robert Halaijian, Kacey Chong, Daniel Whyte, Cam Sobey, taught a Corporate Self-Defence Workshop for Mission Australia at A.I.M. Academy on Friday 30 October 2015.

Mission Australia is one of the largest not-for-profit organisations in Australia and provides excellent programs for homelessness, social housing, youth, women, families, alcohol & drug dependencies, employment, skills & training, and mental wellbeing & disability support.

This group of social workers & youth workers were introduced to principles & tactics from the S.P.E.A.R. System™ (founded by Tony Blauer) and Lawler Tactical (founded by Deane Lawler).

A huge THANK YOU to Nick Mac Hale from Mission Australia for organising this Workshop!

Fantastic to see Mission Australia taking pro-active steps to improve social worker safety, prioritising the personal safety of their staff, and putting resources into making everyone safer!

What an awesome group to work with, and great feedback from the participants!

We look forward to working with you again in the future!
