Breakaway Techniques Course (PMVA) – Level 2

Will this course give me what I need?

“If you were suddenly grabbed would you know how to react effectively?”

When an individual’s personal space is invaded it is an uncomfortable experience, when an individual is grabbed it’s an unforgettable experience.  Employers have a “Duty of Care” to their employees to ensure that physical confrontation(s) within the workplace are managed and that employees have a “non-pain compliant” system in place to deal with such conflicts.

This training can be added to any one of our courses and a must have for any individual.

Please note that this is not a Self Defence course and that “Strikes” will not be taught.  This course is designed to enable delegates to disengage from an attacker enabling “space creation” and an opportunity to regain control of the situation and/ or to retreat to a safer place.

Delegates will be taught “Break-Away” techniques from but not limited to:

  • Wrist Holds (Single & Double handed)
  • Clothing Grabs (Single & Double handed)
  • Front Strangle Holds
  • Rear Strangle Holds
  • Rear Attacks (Including “Bear Hugs” and Double Handed)

Due to the nature of the course content this course can be taught in any large room or area and does not require a matted floor area as no groundwork is taught.  Comfortable clothing is recommended, i.e. Gym wear.
