ProTrainings Online Self Defense Training Now Live!!!!

Hello Self Defense Fans!

I’ve been waiting over 7 months to be able to make this UDEMYpursesnatch2announcement…ProTrainings’ Self Defense Training is now live!

It’s being offered through limited outlets before fully launching on the website and it’s available right now for only $25!

Our marketing team researched the price for this training by asking our current clients what they though was fair.  That price was $89.   Most other Self Defense courses are $129-$289.  After I spoke with the development team, I explained that I wanted to make this course available at a cost that is so reasonable, price wouldn’t stop someone from taking the course.  They graciously conceded and lowered the price for a limited time to less than the cost of a CPR course.

You can go to the training right now by CLICKING HERE:

Or, you can go directly to Udemy.com and search “Practical Self Defense” by ProTrainings.

Here’s a short video that describes a bit more detail about the program. If you do take the course, please give me your feedback so we can make it even better!

Interview With Roy Shaw, Instructor of Pro Self Defense Course Online

Watch this video and share it with your friends if you have any interest in learning effective Self Defense Tactics.

The “Knockout Game” and How To Protect Yourself!

Hey Self Defensors!

You may have already heard by now, but in case you haven’t, there’s a terrible knockout gameassault taking place and it’s called the “Knockout Game”.  It’s a so called game where someone or a group of people pick out a particular targeted person and hits them as hard as they can, usually from behind or blindsiding them and trying to knock them out with one punch.  Then the person falls to the ground backwards or sometimes face first hitting anything that may be in the way causing further injury.  It’s a terrible assault and one  that I think can be eliminated or minimized if we take action now.  What action, you ask?  Preparedness!  Being alert to things around you at all times.  Investigating suspicious behavior.  Reporting and identifying the perpetrators!  Warning unsuspecting persons prior to being picked for the “game”.  For ourselves?  Do not wear ear buds while out in public to a level that you cannot hear anything else around you.  Do not have a hood or hat that blocks your peripheral knockoutvision so as to not see someone rushing at you.  If you hear footsteps or someone running behind you, move to the side and glance back prior to them reaching you.  Have your mace or pepper spray out and ready to use if someone rushes up to you.  If you think someone is following you call the police(911) and go into a public place until help arrives.  Stop texting in public places where we are so engrossed that we don’t pay attention to things around us.  We must look up, walk alert, be alert, be prepared, no hands on pockets and know what’s going on around us.  We will  be covering practical self defense skills and techniques as we go but for now, just being alert and being able to react would have helped some of the already victimized individuals who were brutally injured by getting struck.  Please, share this video with as many people as you think will benefit from it.  We cannot let this go on, we must all help to stop this terrorizing and traumatizing activity.  We must be ready to defend starting right now!

What Can I Do To Protect Myself Right Now?

(Defensor: Latin for defender, champion, warder, Protector, Guardian, advocate. Keep this in mind for every time I address you as such.  That is what you’re here to learn how to be right?)

peppersprayHello Defensors!

Before the close of the day, I wanted to give you a training that was one of the first that I gave to my very own daughter before she went off to college.  This is a training that you can use today!  It is an item that you can order online or get at your local sporting good store.  The use is simple and there need not be any long exercise training or work out.  You need’nt be strong or be a martial artist in order to execute this defense.  Warning!!! Keep this spray away from children and if this spray is accidentally discharged and it get’s onto the skin, or into the eyes, it can be damaging or can cause an allergic reaction and is extremely painful.  It is usually an oil based chemical and is not easily rinsed off.  To begin removal of the spray, one should use a dish soap and water mixture that breaks down oily substances. You may need to call 911 or see an emergency room if exposed.  Be careful to avoid spraying this into the wind or around those who are down wind if you can help it.  Make sure that you can use it per your own States law as well.  Chances are, if you can buy it in a credible sporting good store, it is legal in your State.  Please watch this video compliments of 360 Tactical Training.  I hope it helps.

Peace!

Why I Started A Self Defense Website

selfdefense1Hello,

If you’re reading this, you must be aware that all too many people have been harmed by perpetrators who set out to steal, harm or hurt the innocent.  I can’t hear about one more victim without doing something about it.
My name is Roy Shaw.  I’m a husband, daddy and retired U.S. Army combat medic.  I’m also a licensed Paramedic and an educator and am currently working on advanced belts in both Tae Kwon Do and Brazillian Jiu Jitsu.

The reason I started this website has a great deal to do with the fact that I have a family and I would never want them to be harmed in any way. I’ve come to realize that though we can’t always prevent bad things from happening in every situation, we can definitely prepare ourselves in order to stack the deck in our favor! To make it out alive and as well as possible, that’s a good goal to have.

I’ve read one to many articles about how someone was victimized.  If at all possible, I want to help stop that from happening.  I know that there are thousands of self defense videos on the internet, but I wanted to make sure that you had a website dedicated to great training that was organized, effective and credible.  My experience as an educator and eLearning expert drove me to believe that I could apply my online educational experience and techniques to this very important subject and possibly save you or someone you know from a preventable assault, injury or death.

I hope that this website helps prepare everyone young and old, to be able to defend themselves. The goal of this website is to help train and educate people so that they will not suffer preventable loss. I believe that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

I also realize that in a busy life style, going to a martial arts school or a one time short self defense class may not be in your time budget and probably will not work. This should not stop you from learning how to protect yourself today!  That’s why I designed this website to be available for you when you have the time to learn. I will offer custom and procured video trainings that will be high quality, practical and effective. I will offer both basic and advanced advice for all types of scenarios.

Please ask any questions you have via email, Twitter and Facebook. Feel free to share this website with anyone you think will benefit from it.  The training videos and updates will be sent to you when you subscribe via email or twitter. I’ll look forward to answering any questions you may have to the best of my ability, and when I can’t answer it, I’ll do my best to find an expert who can.

I’m honored to have the opportunity to help.

Be Safe, Secure and Peaceful.
