Canadians aged 55 and older constitute one of the fastest growing populations in the country with approximately 30% of the population currently in this age group. Findings drawn from the Canadian research literature indicates that each year, about 10% of Canadian seniors are victims of crime (over a MILLION EACH YEAR), with 2% reporting having been the victim of violent crime, although this figure is considered low, as many seniors refuse to report crime to law enforcement. About 50% of these violent occurrences take place in a private residence, with many report being victimized multiple times.
Half of violent victimizations of the elderly known to law enforcement in the US involved serious violence— murder, rape, sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, and kidnapping.
Violent criminals and predators, such as home invaders, consider seniors to be a prime target.
Violent crime against seniors can happen anywhere, not just in larger population centres like Toronto, Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington and Hamilton. The best self defense training or the best martial arts training isn’t what they need to survive against younger, stronger, violent predators.
Proven military hand to hand training and close quarter combat training from COMBATIVS allows seniors to protect themselves. Military Special Forces teams and covert government Black Ops agents don’t rely on martial arts or self defense techniques to protect them from violence.
Be confident for you and your family. Private certified training is available at your location, at your convenience, in Toronto, Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton and the surrounding area.
