Workplace Security and Safety

| Gaven Wicks Managing Director

Womens Self Defence and Anti-Bullying training released

| Gaven Wicks Managing Director

Strike Training and Consulting, in its effort to maintain currency and improvement in training has introduced two further training programs. Our development team over the last 6-12 months has painstakingly researched and written these programs to deal with violence against women and bullying of school aged children.   In our development, we have recognised many current programs are not dealing with these issues effectively.   In women’s self-defence there is a lot of focus on learning how to punch, physical interaction with an assailant with a major pointer towards martial arts. These are fine systems but they take a long...
