CDG Active Defense Workshop
The Active Defense Workshop is an introduction into our philosophy of the importance of being a well-rounded defense minded citizen. The goal of this course is to be able to identify indicators of danger and act accordingly to avoid, deter, or subdue that danger. We use the word active to indicate a shift in mindset to adopt a pro-active stance on personal defense. We’ve also detached the term self from defense because we feel that good, responsible people should do as much to protect others as for themselves.
In this three-hour workshop we will define Situational Awareness, discuss what indicators to look for to identify threats, and how to react once a threat is confirmed. We will also discuss what to do in an Active Shooter event. The workshop concludes with learning a few defensive concepts and practice applying those techniques. The emphasis is on techniques that are simple, adaptable, and effective. This work shop provides the baseline for our Active Defense Program. No prior experience is required.
