Online PR News – 18-February-2011 – – Ottawa, ON, February 17, 2011 - (Straight Line PR) - Ottawa Self Defense, SAFE International Offers Women’s Self Defense Parties. SAFE International is the leading provider of mobile self defense/personal protection training in Canada. It currently operates throughout Ottawa and has taught more than 120,000 clients in the private, corporate and high school environments since 1994. SAFE International is expanding its seminar options to include women’s self defense parties.

SAFE International quickly realized that women had completely different concerns, fears, and needs than males. Chris Roberts, CEO of SAFE International listened to their concerns and tailored something that was not only educational, but also met their personal fears. Men have no idea what women go through on an everyday basis from the stares and comments to the physical gestures and advances.

One of the reasons that SAFE International enjoys teaching Ottawa women’s self defense, is how receptive women are to the skills that the SAFE International instructors provide. Chris Roberts attributes this to their appreciating the value in what is taught. While most men are receptive, they are usually more interested in knowing how to fight. Women are interested in learning, based more on their survival in today’s reality. Each skill or tactic taught could potentially save their life, and you can see it in the way they practice and adopt the new skill. Women have more reasons to learn these self defense skills.

Forget Tupperware Parties!

Invite 6 to 8 of your friends for a few hours of fun, education and potentially life- saving instruction. Plan a meal, bbq, snacks, maybe some dessert! Be prepared for a unique self defense experience! What has made SAFE International so popular is their unique method of teaching with humour and sharing of anecdotes. Get to experience their simulated attacks in scenario specific situations such as at the front door, the kitchen, the car, etc.

Women are much more willing to share their stories and feelings of fear since they don’t have the same pressure on them to be "the man". Chris Roberts has been both thankful and humbled by what thousands of women have told him. The women’s self defense course has really been structured around all the stories women have shared with the SAFE instructors.

Years ago Chris was invited to be the keynote speaker at the Annual Ontario Block Parents Convention. There were about 100 adults in attendance comprising of about 75 women. There were also about 25 police officers. Chris began his talk on how to avoid and handle potentially dangerous situations such as being followed, elevator safety, parking lots, distraction techniques, etc and all the women were laughing while about 20 male police officers sat there with their arms crossed staring at him seriously. Chris was thinking this might not be going so well even though all the women were laughing. At this point, the senior police officer in the group stood up and asked if he could say something. At this moment Chris was thinking "Well, this is probably the end of my business and he is going to tell me not to make a joke out of personal safety". The police officer told the group of 100 or so that this was the best approach to personal safety he had ever seen! He said that as a police officer he was sitting listening to the information and not focusing on the humour. He agreed that with the majority of the population the humour was a unique way to get the message across.

SAFE International clients include mothers, fathers, daughters, police officers, seniors, and people with disabilities. To contact SAFE International and Chris Roberts to schedule your Ottawa women’s self defense party, you can visit their main site at
