Course objectives and programmatic details:

Protect yourself from violence – self-defense for teachers


To protect yourself from violence is an important basic need for every human being. Our course wants to help teachers learn how to avoid danger, recognize dangerous situations and to defend themselves in an emergency. With our course we want to contribute through teachers to children and teenagers being able to grow up into self-confident strong personalities. The concept is based on the prevention, self- assertion and self-defense.
