Protective mindset - Awareness & Avoidance

Self-awareness and situational awareness form the bedrock of personal safety. In our training, we prioritize understanding how fear and threats affect us physiologically and psychologically. We impart proactive principles and systems aimed at cultivating the right protective mindset, enabling individuals to recognise, assess, and evade potential threats effectively.
