INTRODUCTION TO VIOLENCE

Is all about ambushes and thugs.  It is the material I consider crucial at starting to adapt training to deal with violent emergencies.


We’ll cover:

The seven aspects of self-defense

Efficient movement

Self-defense law

Adrenaline effects, including freezing

Violence dynamics, the short course on criminals

Counter assault and operant conditioning

And some of the other cool stuff.  Probably blindfolded infighting and leverage.

Conflict Communications

Is unlike any de-escalation program, out there.  First of all, it recognizes that social issues, physical needs, absolute terror and just being a bastard all create specific and different kinds of conflict.  What will calm down someone who is in fear of losing status will NOT calm down someone who needs money for drugs, and will backfire when you run into someone who just likes watching other people scream and beg.


Second, ConCom seems to be the first effective taxonomy of conflict.  You can identify problems and apply solutions right away.


Third, ConCom centers on you.  You can’t shriek at someone else to calm down.  You must learn how to tell when older, more primitive and less effective behavior patterns have taken over. De-escalate yourself first.
