SECURITY AT WORK
Active shooter incidents are on the rise in the United States and Canada, as demonstrated by several high profile attacks in 2015 (including a potentially catastrophic plot that was thwarted in Halifax, Nova Scotia in early 2015, which involved two Americans and a Canadian).
And we’ve all heard of the workplace attack that occurred on December 2, 2015, where 14 people were killed and 22 were seriously injured in a terrorist attack at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California, which consisted of a mass shooting and an attempted bombing.
“Even when law enforcement was present or able to respond within minutes, civilians often had to make life and death decisions, and, therefore, should be engaged in training and discussions on decisions they may face.” FBI
Beyond firearm incidents, there are attacks against employees and employers with knives and other weapons, as well as unarmed violent attacks. Customers are also exposed to violence in areas such as banks, retail stores, malls (i.e. Toronto Eaton Centre; Kenya) and restaurants (as we’ve recently seen in Paris). Rape is another rarely discussed workplace occurrence.
Self defense training for personal security, whether working in Toronto, Mississauga, Burlington, Oakville, or Hamilton, sounds like a great idea, but even the best self defense training isn’t the answer. When a violent occurrence is taking place at work, self defense training can fail you.
Violence can erupt anytime, anywhere and involve anyone. Statistics have proven that typical self-defense training, MMA and martial arts will fail people 98% of the time in violent encounters.
Military Special Forces teams and covert government Black Ops agents don’t train in martial arts or self defense to protect themselves at work. COMBATIVS provides the combat-proven, hand to hand combat and close quarter combat training needed, to protect yourself at work.
Private certified training is available at your location, at your convenience, in COMBATIVS hand to hand and close quarter combat in Toronto, Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton and surrounding areas.
