SAFE International ™ is one of the leading providers of mobile self defense/personal protection training in North America. SAFE International has taught more than 120,000 clients in the private, corporate and high school environments since 1994. SAFE International is expanding its seminar options to include women's self defense for travellers [] in Barrie, ON.

At this time of year, thousands of Canadians and Americans will head south to some of the warmer clients to escape the cold North American winter many of us experience. While the majority will have an amazing time, there are countless stories of women and men of all ages, forgetting that they are in a foreign country in which there are some inherent risks. SAFE International has the history and curriculum to help reduce those risks. SAFE International doesn't only teach physical self defense concepts, but also how to avoid becoming a victim through Awareness/Avoidance training.

Some of the risks people need to concern themselves with when traveling in regards to women's travel self defense Barrie [] includes what an attacker looks for in a potential victim, what an attacker wants and doesn't want in confrontation, hotel safety, plus taxis and buses. One of the biggest topics that SAFE International explores is how most people are too polite, even when their intuition is telling them the complete opposite. The nightlife in many of these countries provides many opportunities for attacks, date rape or kidnappings. SAFE International covers the most common distraction techniques an attacker will use to gain an advantage. Instruction would then move on to verbal strategies in the event that avoidance is no longer possible. Rather than just teaching to yell at a potential attacker, SAFE International instructors cover a few verbal strategies based on the aggressor and the scenario. The third step is addressing the physical aspect of Barrie women's self defense for travellers []. Physical self defense instruction begins with the advantages of adopting a passive stance rather than an aggressive stance. SAFE International only teaches gross motor strikes due to the adrenal rush one gets when they are in a highly stressful state such as an attack scenario. They teach a philosophy of "Attack the Attacker" which reverses one from being the Prey, to that of being the Predator. Another philosophy is to attack the head if all avoidance and verbal strategies have failed. Self defense training does not take years, and in fact with just a few hours of women's self defense instruction for travelers [], you can be confident that you have reduced the odds of harm and can have some peace of mind if it is your daughter or son who is traveling.

SAFE International has taught more than 135,000 women since 1994. For more information on self defense instruction for travelers, please email Chris Roberts, CEO, by email at You can also visit the website at SAFE International can also be reached toll free at 1 800 465 5972.
