Self-Awareness for Everyone (SAFE) - SAFE I
Monday, December 11, 2023
5:00 PM-7:00 PM
Public Safety’s self-protection program, SAFE, aims to give Drexel students, faculty and staff the practical skills, resources and knowledge you can use to increase your personal safety and protect yourself in an unsafe situation. The program focuses on your mindset, self-awareness, techniques that could assist in the event of a physical assault, and information on how and to whom you should report incidents and any safety concerns.
SAFE is split into two sessions: SAFE I and SAFE II. Due to the hands-on nature of the class, we strongly recommend that you register with a fellow Dragon. Participation in the techniques is recommended, but not required.
SAFE I begins with a brief overview of the class and explains the reporting processes, mindset and various free public safety services that are provided. We will focus on stances and patterns of movement, then give a general overview of striking (such as punching palm strikes). We will also explain how to kick and knee properly. We end SAFE I with instructions on how to defend against arm grabs and some chokes. SAFE I classes will be offered the second week of every month on Monday and Wednesday from 5–7 p.m.
