Personal Safety & Self Defense Course Spotlight

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 exposed to strangers, 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).

This course covers 5 main topics:

  1. Legal Environment: Explore 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 ensure your safety.
  2. Physical Limitations: Learn the 11 rules of engagement as well as what happens to our body, without our consent, when suddenly attacked. Freeze, Flight, or Fight.
  3. Safety Is Your Responsibility: This section covers the importance of the three R’s: Recognize, Respond, and Reduce.
  4. Safety and Real Estate Showings: Learn about the importance and awareness of liability for the client, the Realtor, and material items in the home.
  5. Self Defense Tactics: This section covers three methods of defense when force is the last resort.

September is REALTOR® Safety Month

Real estate professionals face a variety of dangers every day. For example, you often meet strangers in isolated locations at odd hours, leaving them open to potential attack.

In honor of Safety Month, check out these tips and tricks for staying safe while dealing with unpredictable situations.

  1. Keep your work and personal social media presences separate. 
    Setting up separate work and personal accounts will make it harder for potential attackers to find personal information or photos that may give hints about where to find you off the job.
  2. Take time to evaluate your surroundings in new locations
    If you are viewing a property for the first time, make sure you are familiar with exit routes and areas where you could easily be trapped.
  3. Do not give prospective home buyers rides
    While it is somewhat common practice to provide rides for clients, it is much safer to drive separate. Avoid parking in areas where you could be blocked in.
  4. Learn self-defense tactics
    This one is a given. Learning self-defense will increase your ability to defend yourself at work and at home. Certified Training Institute offers a 4-hour Online Self Defense Class designed with real estate professionals in mind.

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.

  • 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.
