Description:

Awareness, assessment, and action-the three A`s of self-defense-are critical skills for maintaining personal safety. Self-Defense: Steps to Success integrates these elements into a effective approach that defines self-defense as a state of mental and physical preparedness.By learning a unique progression of skills-the steps to success-your students will:- develop greater awareness and vigilance,- sharpen observational and judgment skills,- learn communication techniques to defuse potentially volatile situations, and- acquire competency in physical self-defense tactics for use when preventive measures fail.Written by master teacher and fourth degree black belt Joan Nelson, Self-Defense: Steps to Success is part of the Steps to Success Activity Series-the most extensively researched and carefully developed set of sport skills instruction books ever published. Each of the 14 steps featured in Self-Defense: Steps to Success provides a solid foundation of basic skills and concepts. As students progress, they will learn how to apply these basic skills to defend against common unarmed attacks. Each step (chapter):- explains why the concept or skill is important,- identifies the keys to correct technique,- helps students correct common errors,- explains how to practice each skill in realistic ways,- lists specific performance goals for each drill,- gives students a summary checklist for evaluating proper technique, and- lets students proceed at their own pace.In addition, your students will learn the key concept of the continuum of response, which includes everything from avoidance techniques and verbal and psychological de-escalation skills to self-defense maneuvers. And for times when physical defense is deemed necessary, Self-Defense: Steps to Success details defensive techniques designed to neutralize the attack. Counterattacks are added only when purely defensive techniques are no longer sufficient to maintain safety. This book also features drills to strengthen your students` recall skills under stress. With Self-Defense: Steps to Success you`ll help your students gain confidence in their ability to think clearly and strategically in a variety of potentially dangerous situations and to implement effective and appropriate strategies for maintaining their safety.
