Carter was abducted and killed in 2014 after meeting a couple (Aaron Lewis and Crystal Lowery) who arranged a fake tour. The couple is currently incarcerated and serving 30 years and life sentences.

The victims family is suing her employer stating in a lawsuit document that “Crye-Leike was well aware of the life-threatening dangers Mrs. Carter faced in the real estate industry and had the duty to provide Mrs. Carter with the necessary tools, guidance, skills, information, awareness, consulting, training, support and technology to keep her safe. Defendants failed in this regard, and as a result, Mrs. Carter's life ended much too soon.”

Professional Fighter Teaches Self-Defense in Uganda

Professional MMA fighter, D'Juan Owens is teaching self-defense to men, women, and children in Uganda through his organization Fighting for Uganda. Owens has had extensive self-defense training not only as a mixed-martial-artist but also, as a veteran of the Marine Corps.

Owens chose to go to Uganda because sexual assault is prevalent and there are little consequences for perpetrators. During his first trip to Uganda Owens taught self-defense, grappling, and MMA seminars in schools, community centers, gyms, and a few private venues. The focus of these seminars is often on grappling. According to Owens, this is the most important form of martial art. Grappling can make up for weight disparities, allowing the victim to neutralize an attacker to get away.  After the physical portion of Owens' seminars, he leads group discussions about situational awareness, domestic violence, and common misconceptions of assault.

Owens hopes his training will help Ugandans avoid danger and build self-confidence.

Personal Safety For Men

Self-defense for men is an often forgotten but incredibly important skill men between the ages of 18 and 25 are more likely to be attacked than anyone else in American society. Some men may feel pressured to engage in dangerous situations to avoid appearing weak but, any self-defense professional will tell you it is best to talk your way out of a dangerous situation rather than resort to violence. 

  1. Your first course of action should always be de-escalation. Try to speak in a slow calm voice. Avoid touching your attacker or standing with your arms crossed, these are often seen as signs of aggression.
  2. In the case of an attack try to escape the situation. There is no shame in leaving a fight rather than becoming violent.
  3. If these options fail, be prepared to defend yourself. Some self-defense holds can render your attacker incapacitated without causing long-term harm. If possible, start with less harmful methods and resort to more harmful counterattacks only when necessary.

Certified Training Institute offers online personal safety and self-defense courses in an easy-to-use, HD video format.

Why Should I Learn Self-Defense?

 

  1. Improve Your Awareness
    Self-defense will teach you to read your surroundings. After completing a self-defense course, you will be more apt to spot and avoid areas where attackers could hide or you would be unable to escape.
  2. Improve Your Reflexes
    Even if you already understand self-defense and have a good sense of your surroundings, practice will improve your form and reflexes.  Once your reflexes are honed you will know where to step and throw your punch without thinking about it, saving precious time you do not have in an attack situation.
  3. Build Self-Esteem
    Individuals familiar with self-defense tactics often report heightened self-esteem. The ability to protect yourself and feel safe in most situations can do wonders for anxiety or low self-esteem.
  4. Get in Shape
    This one is a no brainer. Practicing self-defense is a terrific way to lose weight and gain muscle while learning valuable, life-saving skills.
  5. Protect Yourself
    Last and certainly not least, practicing self-defense and personal protection techniques will give you the skills to fend off attackers and avoid personal harm.

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.

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).

Self-Defense-logo

This course covers 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.

Physical Limitations: This section covers the 11 rules of engagement as well as what happens to our body, without our consent, when suddenly attacked. Freeze, Flight, or Fight.

Safety Is Your Responsibility: This section covers the importance of the three R’s: Recognize, Respond, and Reduce.

Safety and Real Estate Showings: This section covers the importance and awareness of liability for the client, the Realtor, and material items in the home.

Self Defense Tactics: This section covers three methods of defense when force is the last resort.
