Reality-Based Self-Defence Training Day at A.I.M. Academy

During this 6-Hour Reality-Based Self-Defence Intensive Training Day, we covered topics such as:

– How to raise your state of awareness with various awareness drills

– Verbal de-escalation and how to talk your way out of a hostile situation

– Defence against unarmed attacks

– Defence against knife-attacks, and other edged weapons or sharps, such as bottles, glasses, syringes

– Defence against multiple attackers, such as muggings, gang attacks

Training included technical skill development, as well as pressure-testing (or stress-testing), where participants applied the skills learnt under pressure.

Scenario-based training (similar to role-playing) was also used to create realistic scenes that participants might find themselves in. This creates a similar psychological and emotional response to a real self-defence situation, which allows participants to test the skills they have learnt under a more realistic, yet safe, training environment.
