What is RAID?
The RAID system was designed by Tremain Kent and is a unique approach to self-defence that can be used by anyone, regardless of their age or physical ability. It's designed with the goal in mind - personal security awareness training for today’s world where anything seems possible on any given day!
RAID has two main elements of Self Defence:
THE “SELF” MEANING IT IS A UNIFIED STRATEGIC EXPLORATION OF THE ‘SELF’, BY EXAMINING YOUR BELIEF SYSTEMS AND ATTITUDE TO DEVELOPING ASSERTIVENESS, FEAR MANAGEMENT AND PSYCHOLOGICAL SKILLS THAT BUILD CONFIDENCE FROM WITHIN.
AND “DEFENCE” THE SECOND ELEMENT OF MULTIFUNCTIONAL GUIDED ‘DEFENCES’ WHICH ARE TACTICAL DEFENCE CONCEPTS SIMPLISTIC IN NATURE THAT AFFORD A 3-DIMENSIONAL AND 360 DEGREE DEFENCE WITH LIMITED ACTIONS.
Spielberg’s blockbuster, “Minority Report”, is set in the year 2054. The future – at least according to a team of MIT futurologists, hired by the cinematic genius – is the captive of embarrassingly personalized and disturbingly intrusive.
The second module within reactive assault is defusing or what is known as conflict management. When the situation has escalated and you have not been able to avoid it, a lot of people seem to find it difficult to communicate in a stressful situation and end up making it worse. If you find yourself in this position you will be feeling the effects of emotional adrenalin and physiological change, like accelerated heart & respiration rate, dry mouth, etc. This module is very important and is the choices part of your defence strategy because we provide you with a tactical conflict management process called “STOP” which guides you through a situation step by step. You will learn, active listening and de-escalation skills to enable the reintroduction of rational thought processing so that you can make rational decisions or choices.
Reactive Emotional Tactical Concepts (Detection, Defuse & Defend – Assault)
Defence is the last resort and last module within reactive assault, as all attempts to get away have been negated and de-escalation and conflict management skills have failed. In this module you will learn the tactical “COPE” process which allows you to reflexively cope with any physical assault you may encounter. The module is split into understandable segments starting with;
Knowledge Based – The knowledge based elements are understanding about the body and what it can and can’t do and what happens to you when it is attacked. You will also learn the law of self defence and RAID’s use of force process. So that you can protect yourself in court as you did on the street.
Physical Based – The physical based element is split into three; Basic Combat Arts – The first part is to understand what and how your body can protect yourself. Basic combat arts (BCA) will enable you to learn not only different defences but also the pros and cons for each. This also provides body conditioning, fight fitness and assertiveness development. Reasonable Force – The next physical base element is reasonable force, where you will learn, different ranges of defence and most common attack concepts such as breakaway tactics, attitude adjusters, ABC of chokes, sucker punch mentality and many more defence tactics. Force Continuum – The final physical base element will teach you how to defend yourself against improvised weapons defence, edged weapons or knife threat and attack defence, long weapon defence and firearms threat defence tactics.
