African Bank, a South African based banking company recently contracted C.O.B.R.A. Self-Defense South Africa to conduct 6 x self-defense training sessions for their employees at their corporate office based in Midrand in Johannesburg. The company believes in empowering its employees and this intiative was undertaken to enhance the personal safety of employees both at work and at home.
The first 3 training sessions kicked off in October 2019 and the remainder will be completed in January 2020. During the 4-hour sessions the teams learned how important it is to prevent becoming the victim in the first place and that physically defending yourself only really becomes necessary when a number of things went wrong. The team learned how criminal predators select their “prey” as well as the aspects they always try to control to succeed with an attack.
A 3-step formula known as the AAA-Principle was taught where the participants learned how to become a harder target and to make life really difficult for criminal predators. However, not all physical conflict can be avoided and the teams learned how to execute “equalizer” strikes which enable even the smallest of persons to injure an attacker as opposed to only hurting the attacker. They also learned how to escape from a variety of chokes and holds, when and when not to physically resist, how to act during a vehicle hi-jacking situation and also how to prevent being abducted/kidnapped.
C.O.B.R.A.™ Self-Defense South Africa offers self-defense training for corporates in all industries. They have trained employees working at mining companies, at state departments, armed response companies all the way to university lecturers. The corporate self-defense training can even be structured as a fun team building activity where employees have tremendous fun while learning life saving skills that they may even teach to their families.
C.O.B.R.A.™ Self-Defense South Africa operates country wide and travel to any city/town in South Africa to do corporate training. With a well equiped mobile training unit, all you need to do is provide a suitable training space and C.O.B.R.A. takes care of the rest.
