Smart companies take steps to keep their employees healthy – health insurance, dental insurance, wellness programs. It’s not just the right thing to do, it makes good business sense. A new trend in Corporate Wellness is the in-house self-defense seminar.

These seminars, which typically last 1 or 2 days, teach important life-saving skills and should become regular occurrences in many organizations’ wellness programs. Other than the primary benefit of teaching your employees to physically defend themselves – there are significant secondary benefits to self-defense training. Here are a few great reasons to include our Corporate Wellness / Personal Protection / Self-Defense training seminar in your organization:

  • Reduced Stress – Employees who feel safer suffer less stress. This may translate into less stress related illness, less lost time due to illness, and higher productivity. This can mean a long-term realized cost savings to an employer.
  • Reduced Workplace Violence – Self Defense training can mitigate workplace violence. The phenomenon of workplace violence is growing at an alarming rate around the world. The costs associated with dealing with workplace violence after the fact are astronomical. A small investment in quality training today can prevent catastrophic losses in the future.
  • Business Travel Safety Strategies & Techniques – Business travel is an inevitable part of work life for many occupations. Whether planning to take a single business trip to meet with a client or traveling for business on a regular basis, safety around the parking lot, on the plane, and in the hotel is an essential part of traveling. When speaking of business travel safety, you want employees to be concerned, not only for themselves and their personal belongings, but also any business equipment they happen to bring with them on their trip, which is common among some professionals.
  • Enhance Teamwork – Self Defense training can enhance teamwork. Properly structured training, as offered by groups like MTS, brings coworkers together in problem solving exercises. Emotional and psychological barriers to personal achievment can be explored in a supportive environment, with the help of co-workers.
  • Improve Morale and Discipline – Martial Arts based training improves employee morale and discipline. Studies by the US Marine Corps have shown that their regular martial arts program created greater self-discipline, stronger work ethic, and more psychologically well-adjusted Marines.
  • Increased Problem Solving – Self-Defense training increases creative problem solving. Self defense training helps employees learn to overcome obstacles creatively. This may translate into greater on the job creativity, problem solving ability, and thinking “outside the box”.
  • Improve Employee Confidence – Self defense training instills confidence. Martial arts based training helps people build confidence and become greater leaders. Public speaking may also be enhanced, as well as greater leadership presence.
