Food for Thought: Personal Security - 10/24
Generously sponsored by AMCOM Office Systems
Cohosted by the Pittsburgh North Regional Chamber of Commerce
This session of the chamber's "Food for Thought" series will focus on "Personal Security for the 21st Century." Sam Rosenberg, founder of INPAX, a world-class self-defense and training academy in the North Hills.
The world can be a dangerous place. And while personal security is a fundamental human need, it is ultimately a personal responsibility. In the moment of truth, the “lifeguards” of society simply won’t be there to protect us – whether from street crime or the potential of mass homicide. We are, in effect, on our own.
Yet violence is never random. Even the most desperate predator is careful in selecting his victims. And “bad guys” of all types – from the street criminal to the workplace shooter always follow a predictable continuum of behavior the elements of which can be identified—in advance—by easily spotted “indicators”—if you know what to look for.
This phase of training teaches participants how to recognize when they might be in danger, avoid and deter threats directed towards them, and how to decisively respond physically to incapacitate an attacker if avoidance fails.
