F.A.S.T. stands for Fear Adrenaline Stress Training.
Our FAST Defence courses teach you about self protection and show you how to be in control of confrontational situations.
Adrenal stress occurs in every confrontation, however big or small. From the arguments you might have at work to a mugging or attack on the street, the body is flooded with adrenaline.
The biggest factor in having a successful outcome or surviving an attack, is being able to channel the adrenaline and therefore avoid freezing up. The objective of all F.A.S.T. courses is that the student should learn to experience and control difficult situations whilst under the effects of adrenal stress.
F.A.S.T. courses are built upon teaching the student to achieve these successes in controlled but ever increasing adrenal stress situations. Although the instructors control the scenarios, the students have a 'real' experience and effectively programme themselves for success in future encounters.
You will learn how real world situations occur and how to avoid the common mistakes that escalate them. You will learn to use dialogue and verbal dissuasion. You will learn to avoid looking like a victim.
In self-protection terms, F.A.S.T. is simple, highly effective and empowering. The student learns to understand their adrenal response and therefore to operate effectively.
However, there is more to the course than self-protection. Worldwide, these courses have had massive impact on peoples lives. Attendees report feeling empowered and more able to deal with the other stressful areas of their lives. Corporate clients report excellent results in management training and team building. Nearly everyone who experiences this training becomes a massive fan.
