Back to School Special – 4 Hour Self-Defense Class in HD Video

It’s  back to school time! Have you considered getting your college student the gift of self-defense? Colleges have a high rate of property crime, theft, violent crime, and assault, making it very important for students to have the skills to defend themselves and their possessions. This is especially true for those leaving home for the first time as they may not have the skills or awareness to protect themselves in unfamiliar situations. In short, back to school is the perfect time to invest in self-defense for your college student.

Certified Training Institute has created a 4-hour course that can be completed at your own pace. This class is specifically designed to teach individuals ground avoidance and ground defense tactics. Class instructor, Preston L. Taylor “PT”, has been in law enforcement for 25 years and began his martial arts training at 13. As a law enforcement officer, one of PT's main duties is teaching defense and personal safety tactics to fellow officers and civilians alike.

Self-Defense Classes Upswing After Woman Fights Off Her Attacker

Self-defense class enrollment soared after Seattle woman Kelly Herron used techniques she learned in a self-defense class to fight off an attacker in a public restroom. The woman was taught to "be loud and fight like a savage" in her course and in real life, it worked. Herron was able to defeat her attacker and lock him in the bathroom until police came to arrest him. Since the attack, searches for the self-defence class Herron took have increased ten-fold.

Herron's attacker hid in a bathroom stall until she entered, threw her to the ground and attempted to assault her. Even with the element of surprise, Herron was able to use the skills she learned to defeat her attacker. His mugshot showed heavy bruising and a large bandage over his eye, a testament to the effectiveness of the skills she learned in class.


Self-defense is an important skill for everyone to have. Certified Training Institute offers online personal safety and self-defense courses in an easy-to-use, HD video format.

Self Defense Tips for Real Estate Agents

Real estate professionals face daily dangers even as they navigate simple necessary tasks. Here are a few tips to ensure your safety.

  1. Drive separately. This may seem like common sense but many real estate professionals carpool with potential home buyers, leaving them open to robberies, car theft, and worse. Furthermore, do not park anywhere that is hard to access or easily blocked in. This will allow a quick get away if necessary.
  2. Protect your personal information. First and foremost, do not use photos in marketing materials. Police have documented cases of criminals circling real estate professional's photos in newspapers as targets for theft. Second, use your cell phone and office address in all marketing materials. Do not provide home buyers with any personal information such as where you live, who you live with, or how many children you have.
  3. Promote security at open houses. Advertise security measures you plan to implement at open houses. Require identification at the front door and, if possible, use video surveillance. Implementing and advertising these measures will help discourage criminals from attending your showings. Additionally, partnering up with another agent and introducing yourself to neighbors are tried and true cautionary measures.
  4. Avoid showing houses alone if possible. A co-worker, spouse, or dog can be incredibly useful in discouraging attack. If you must show a house alone avoid confined places, walk behind the homebuyers, and make sure someone knows where you are and about how long you plan to be there.
  5. Learn self-defense. When all precautionary measures fail it is important to be able to protect yourself. Certified Training Institute provides online HD video classes designed to teach real estate agents basic self-defense from standing and ground positions. This class is a great measure for any real estate agent with the added bonus of being approved as continuing education in Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New York, Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania.

This Week’s Course Spotlight: Personal Safety and Self Defense

Real Estate Training Institute is proud to share our featured course of the week! Our 4-hour Personal Safety and Self Defense course is taught by instructor Preston Taylor. Part of a Realtors job is to meet strangers in isolated locations at odd hours of the day. They put themselves at risk every day (without realizing it) by doing “everyday” tasks that may seem harmless.

Personal Safety and Self Defense

This course is designed to provide important safety tips and precautions for personal safety in the workplace. This is especially true for real estate professionals as they are very often in situations that expose them to unknown situations, with unknown persons. It is important to understand the legal environment surrounding self-defense and the physical limitations that can be a factor for each individual. There are key “Rules of Engagement” that help those who work with the public to recognize and avoid dangerous situations. If a confrontation does occur, the instructor outlines and demonstrates the best and most practical ways to respond to and reduce potential harm. This program offers self-defense techniques from the stand-up position using easy and effective gross motor skills, to ground defense and ground avoidance (rape prevention).

REALTOR® Safety Month is Coming Up!

In September of 2014, Realtor Beverly Carter went missing after showing a home in her hometown. It is said that Carter was targeted because she was a rich woman who worked alone. She went to a showing under false pretenses and as a result, was murdered. Beverly Carter did everything she was supposed to do as a Realtor working alone, she contacted family members, and gave them the exact location of her open house and notified them the times she was going to be there.

Since the tragic death of Beverly Carter, the Real Estate industry has made changes to their safety protocols. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) proclaimed September to be REALTOR® Safety Month to help spread awareness.

Real Estate Training Institute is participating this September in REALTOR® Safety Month. Together with instructor Preston Taylor, we have created a 4-hour Personal Safety and Self-Defense online continued education course. This course will cover 5 main topics:

  • Legal Environment:This section covers your legal rights, what you can and cannot do in a situation. You do have the right to defend yourself against an assault. A common sense approach to self-defense is that avoidance is one of the best ways to insure your safety.

Why Hotel Employees Should Be Trained in Self Defense!

Did you know that you can cripple your attacker with just the grab of their “pinky”? What do you do while waiting for the police to get to you? If you are attacked, how do you know whether to run or beat the snot out of them?  If you do beat the snot out of them, are you going to get in trouble for assault? Is there something you can do to prevent the whole incident from happening?  These are things every hotel employee should know.

Do you know what to do if you are the target of an attacker?Female Boss Punching At Camera

  • In 1998, an 18 year old college student working as a desk clerk was found raped and beaten to death at a beach front hotel in Traverse City, Michigan.
  • In 2009, a beloved Laguna Beach hotel manager was bludgeoned to death in his onsite apartment.
  • In 2013, it took two weeks to find 21-year-old Elisa’s body hidden in the hotel water tanks.
  • In 2015 a 22-year-old Atlanta man was strangled by his boyfriend in a hotel.  Crimes of this extreme are not the norm at hotels, but they do happen.

It is critically important that all hotel staff be trained on security procedures before their first day of work.  The program should include at least a basic course on self defense tactics and Rules of Engagement.  The ability to defend yourself is an education that will always be beneficial.  Hotel employees should be taught how to recognize, respond and reduce a potential situation. If an altercation should occur, they should know how to conserve energy and use basic survival skills.

Simple things like keeping your chin up and making direct eye contact with you attacker can delay their movements.  Keeping your hands free and demeanor focused can make you look like the sheep dog, rather than the sheep.

As a Hospitality Manager, you can greatly increase the safety of your staff without spending an arm and a leg. Having every employee complete a simple 4-hour video course devoted to their own personal protection and self defense is a great addition to your security plan.

The Certified Training Institute has created a 4-hour Personal Safety & Self Defense course that teaches self-defense tactics from the stand-up position utilizing gross motor skill (easy but Preston Taylor personal safety instructor profile pictureeffective) techniques as well as ground defense and ground avoidance (rape prevention) tactics which can be used anywhere in any situation. Having a staff that has been trained to be aware of their surroundings is not only important for them as individuals but also for Hotel guests.

Our course instructor Preston L. Taylor “PT” is a police officer with over 20+ years of experience, and is extremely knowledgeable in the realm of personal protection and self-defense.
