Landing the Plane: From Pre-Assault To Calling Counsel


Cedar Valley Outfitters is pleased to have Michael J. Anderson come and teach his class Landing the Plane: From Pre-Assault To Calling Counsel on May 2, 2015.  The class will be held at Hubbell’s Auto Repair at 539 31st st, Marion, IA 52302

Anderson describes his class as follows:

Objective:  The goal of this course is to help the student to identify and respond to emergent threatening behavior by unknown persons in places that support violent criminal acts.

Key information and skills:

  • The victim selection process and how to stay out of it.
  • Categories of pre-assault indicators and how to recognize them.
  • How to maintain distance and buy yourself time.
  • How to use your words without falling into dialogue.
  • Ask, Tell, Make as it applies to civilians.
  • When to “Go First” and what to do.

We will utilize role play and scenarios to give participants the opportunity to practice a safer way of interacting with unknown persons.  Our focus is on appropriate, authentic, and believable responses to realistic encroachment problems.  Our role play will include contacting authorities for help, interacting with help when it arrives, and who to call in the aftermath.

Equipment will be provided.  There is no live fire or hard contact during this course.

The fee for this class is $100.  You must pay in advance for this class at Cedar Valley Outfitters.  This reserves your spot for the class and ensures you are able to take the class on the day you desire.  This is an off-site class and you will be provided the class location when you register.

The class begins at 8:30 am and will run from 4 to 6 hours in length.  Please plan your day accordingly.   There are no scheduled breaks.  Bring water and snacks if desired.

 

Weapons Retention Class

Having your firearm taken from you and then used against you is not something anyone wishes to experience. If you were placed in this type of situation do you know how to react? Have you trained to prevent this from happening?

For those who carry developing awareness to how your weapon is potentially being exposed to an assailant and recognizing what pre-attack signals an assailant may be presenting is a first step to your personal protection. In addition have you considered how to turn your body away from an attacker to make your firearm less accessible but still allow you to address the threat? And are you able to recognize the signals from an attacker that might indicate you are at risk, such as questions about your firearm or having someone stare at your carry side? Do you know how to create space to access your firearm for your personal defense?

CVO offers a Weapons Retention class instructed by Chris Smaby to help you learn these techniques. The cost of this class is $40.00. Students should bring their holster and personal firearm to class where they will be cleared and then zip-tied open. This is a physical class and students should be prepared to engage as part of the learning process.  Please call the store, 319-447-6140 to register.

Women’s Self-Defense Class

This year, tens of thousands of Americans will report being assaulted and many, many more will find themselves in potentially dangerous confrontations. Many of them will be women.

Our Women’s Self-Defense Class presents a comprehensive and systematic approach to feeling in control in a world that sometimes seems out of control. From early prevention to last-ditch physical resistance, this class gives you the tools you need to deal effectively with situations ranging from uncomfortable to life-threatening.

In this class you will be given the tools to be able to look at someone without giving him or her permission to speak to you.

You will be provided examples of how you can mantain your personal space and boundaries even when “a friend gets too friendly”.

You will learn how to create and establish a presence of being strong, to look strong, even when you may not feel strong.

And while this class does not teach weapon use we can provide information on carrying weapons that will allow you to make an informed choice.

The goal is for you to leave with self- confidence; the assurance that comes from knowing that you are equipped to face an emergency.

This program is presented in two parts on two different evenings. Part One will discuss middle ground self-defense. Part Two is hands on and is physical. You must attend Part One to participate in Part Two. You may participate as much or as little as you want on the second night.

The instructor for this program is Chris M. Smaby, training specialist for the Cedar Rapids Police Department and chief instructor for the Japan Karate Association of Iowa.

April 28, 2015 6:00 to 9:30 PM Part One
April 30, 2015 6:00 to 9:30 PM Part Two

NEW! Level II  $50 (You must complete Level I prior to taking this class.)
