self defense woman man

By Fergus Dullaghan

Several years ago my wife was mugged just outside Geneva. It was a terrifying experience for her. The damage wasn’t limited to stolen items and a trip to hospital in the back of an ambulance – it was the aftermath. Months (maybe years) of jumping at shadows, disrupted sleep and anxiety.

As a former professional martial artist, I have wanted to help other women in the area avoid the same fate for a long time. Now, I have the opportunity to do so. To make it accessible I have tried to keep the price as low as possible. I would like to offer some very simple, but highly effective strategies to stay safe if you are ever attacked.

We will cover:

  • The anatomy of an attack - understanding how a mugging happens
  • The psychology of an attack
  • Pattern disruption - how to stop an attack before it begins
  • Behavioural habits - maximising your chances of a good outcome if you are attacked
  • Instinctive defence - how to survive physically
  • The aftermath - being aware that the attack itself is just one part of the process
  • How to deepen your knowledge (suggested books, blogs and local training possibilities)
