There are many self-defense courses available to real estate professionals. Most of these courses are taught live and some of them may be available online. While self-defense courses are not just for women, many may be geared for females. There are many formats for training and may be as short as an hour or as long as 10 weeks.
Self-defense is a group of awareness, assertiveness, confrontation skills, safety strategies, and physical techniques that enable someone to escape, resist, and survive violent attacks. A good self-defense course provides awareness and verbal skills, not just physical training. Self-defense training can increase your options and help you prepare responses to interrupt an attack.
Some topics that could be covered in a self-defense class are how to take preventative measures to avoid being attacked, how to handle confrontation, as well as how/where/and when to strike and fight back.
Prevention is the best self-defense. Attackers, whatever their objectives, are looking for unsuspecting, vulnerable people. A good self-defense class will help you learn the skills to be more alert to your surroundings.
This course reviews what to expect from a self-defense course and why completing a self-defense course is a good option for a real estate professional to consider. Other safety tips are also included.
