Franklin Joseph Article – “10 reasons to include self defense in your corporate wellness program”

Women Self Defense

Last updated on March 11th, 2022 at 10:30 am

Proactive, forward-thinking companies do what is necessary to ensure that employees are mentally, emotionally and physically healthy. These companies understand that by providing employees with benefits like wellness programs, insurance, training/education, and more, they are investing in their own future as a company.

A new trend in Corporate Wellness is in-house self-defense or safety awareness seminars like ‘’.

These seminars teach important life-saving skills and are quickly become regular occurances in many organizations’ wellness programs.

Here are the 10 reasons to include Franklin Joseph ‘Power to’ Self Defense training in your corporate wellness program

[] [Post] Other than the primary benefit of teaching your employees to physically defend themselves – there are significant secondary benefits to self-defense training.

  1. Empowerment from with-in, self confidence and self-control and creates new level of respect for others team members

    ‘’ focuses on empowerment from within rather than depending on special martial arts tricks or external reinforcement of power like husbands, boyfriends, guards etc. Lot of women can be taught punches and kicks but they will never use it as they do not believe they can be a force to reckon with. Staffers will always think we are too small, not that strong, too big, too thin, too weak, too old, too young, too unfit etc. and finally they really do not wish to engage in a fist fight with someone bigger and stronger than them. What if they forget the martial arts trick? What if they drop the pepper spray or its empties up? Then what??? ‘’ teaches them to Prevent, Avoid and Escape most of the threats using just reflex action (something their body already knows and remembers) and science of human body. Thus eradicating all the doubts plus when they also see other staffers doing the same along with their limitations they starts to respect them too.

  2. Learn to apply prevention and avoidance strategies that are consistent with your individual lifestyle

    ‘’ also does not believe in magic, easy solutions to difficult situations in life. Most of these so-called Self Defense program focuses on showcasing easy magic solutions to serious problems women face every day. Who does not want a easy solution? But when it’s life threatening situations, you will rather have a effective solution rather than a make-belief pretend-it-easy solution. ‘’ believes in showcasing how to understand the problem so you can rather prevent, avoid and escape from most of the problems without actually having to put your life at threat by fighting it.

  3. Employees who are capable of protecting themselves are more confident

    ‘’ Workshops targets staffs to directly challenge their level of performance and their leadership potential in a stressful situation. Untrained individuals tend to avoid situations where they are required to be open to new situations and people. ‘’ Self-defense training helps to build confidence, increase self-esteem, and a greater sense of leadership presence. Confident people tend to be more able to overcome obstacles and get the job done.

  4. People who feel safer are less prone to the debilitating effects of stress

    Stress is the number one factor in many illnesses and a leading cause of on-the-job accidents. The increased confidence, coupled with an increased sense of calm, can mean a long-term cost savings for an employer. Less stress means less stress-related illnesses, less lost time due to illness, fewer accidents, and higher productivity. Without the burden of stress-related paralysis, employees are more energetic, quick-thinking, and relaxed – making them more productive members of your organization.

  5. ‘’ Krav Maga Israeli Self-Defense training has been shown to improve employee discipline, morale and enhance teamwork

    Feelings of weakness, social anxiety, and concern for one’s safety, by any one individual, can cause stress on an entire employee group. Many employees live in fear of making the wrong decisions, some care little for their job – expecting to be paid for time rather than productivity – and others suffer from poor interpersonal skills. Emotional and psychological barriers to personal achievement can prevent a team from functioning productively. With ‘’ Krav Maga Israeli Self Defense we have various drills which require team work thus creating a workforce made up of positive, powerful, and productive people. So this program allows team members to come together in a supportive environment to learn important skills. With the help of co-workers, individuals with weaker skill sets learn to overcome obstacles and fears that may be holding them back, and safely become leaders in their own right within their groups.

  6. Self-defense games improves creative problem solving skills

    ‘’ workshops includes lot of games which can help employees learn to creatively overcome obstacles to success. This type of training can develop and/or improve problem-solving abilities, creativity, and “outside the box” thinking. Employees learn to think “strategically”, providing their company with the ability to identify symptoms and root causes of problems and determine both corrective and preventive actions, leading to less wasted time, money, and other resources in having to repeatedly “replace band-aids.”

  7. Teaches patience, goal-setting and improves organizational & leadership skills

    ‘’ believe the best way to improve a person would perform under stress, is to actually put him/her under stressful conditions. Our training forces the staff members to explore, make mistakes and learn from those mistakes thus strengthening his patience to handle stress, setting up goals to outperform and overall making sure his emerges the survivor using all his organizational and leadership skills.

  8. Provides an energy outlet (stress relief) which promotes a non-aggressive attitude

    ‘’ workshops also teaches basic combative tactics which actually can be done separately as a fitness workout. We have punches bags that the staff members can hit thus creating an energy outlet for any negative energies. Lot of people believe it’s promotes aggressive attitude but actually people get aggressive when they are insecure. Learning how to defend themselves, helps the person to calm down, he/she is more secure and hence promotes non-aggressive attitude.

  9. Increase awareness of the benefits of a healthy and fit lifestyle mantra

    ‘’ workshops can also be continued with Israeli Krav Maga regular classes in your premises thus adding another avenue to expose the benefits of healthy workout and fit lifestyle.

  10. Employees may experience a greater sense of happiness and peace of mind

    Happier employees provide many benefits for their company. Individuals who have a confident, positive outlook on life are less likely to be threatened by change, become defensive with others, or lash out at others verbally, physically, or emotionally when things don’t go smoothly. ‘’ self defense training is known to be a source of personal empowerment and confidence, providing a person with the ability to be in control of him or herself. It is this type of person that tends to attract and affect others in a positive way, making them a valuable asset to any company.
