Violence is never truly random; even the most desperate predator is deliberate in selecting his victims. And “bad guys” reliably follow a predictable behavior pattern in executing their plans. The phases of this continuum can be identified by easily spotted “indicators”—if you know what to look for and are in the position to observe. Even when attacks feel random, you will hear those associated with the offender say things like, “we knew he was going to be involved in something like this…”
INPAX teaches you how to recognize, avoid, and (most importantly) deter threats, and how to decisively respond to physically incapacitate an attacker if avoidance fails. You will learn:
- How to influence your own stress response– How to manage the natural “panic or paralysis” response and maintain the ability to think under pressure as your first line of defense.
- The “interview” - Learn to negotiate and de-escalate the crucial phase that determines if an attack will actually take place.
- Non-verbal tactics. – 60-80% of our communication is non-verbal. Even if you are saying all the right things, your body could be showing your fear. Learn to use non-verbal tactics to reinforce that you will not be a “victim.”
- Defensive Tactics. - Practical and immediately usable self-defense skills designed to disrupt an assailant and create opportunities for you to escape or get control.
