“Agressie de Baas (be the boss of aggression)”.
This training focuses on gaining more self-confidence (no false sense of security) and skills of the participants in dealing with aggression, resulting in more safety. The techniques are adapted to the type of attacker and situation.
Correctly handling aggressive behavior is not an easy job. Often people react out of their own fear or tension.
Realize that you can never be prepared for everything and that sometimes you cannot prevent violence being used against you or that you can prevent violence against others.
Through this training one can learn to react more skillfully in situations, in order to get out of such a confrontation better and with less damage. One learns to control oneself, not to react aggressively out of fear, the ability to recognize a danger already at the beginning or even see it coming. This makes it easier to assess threatening situations and react appropriately immediately.
