As part of our mission to reach out to the community, our instructors are brought in to help teach corporations and organizations self-defense techniques and empowerment. These courses are usually taught during lunch and focus on basic techniques to teach individuals to be more aware of their surroundings, how to use their voice and basic self-defense techniques to deal with worse case scenarios. The short courses help not only help establish confidence when dealing with difficult situations, but also helps establish team building in a safe environment with experienced instructors.
Here’s what Dalton Management had to say about us:
To whom it may concern,
The Tulen Center taught an amazing personalized self-defense class to 35 people in our company. Mas Goeroe Silvia Smart, 6th degree black belt, met with our Safety Committee ahead of time to learn what was important to the group and then built the self-defense class around those ideas.
In property management we are often in situations where we are alone with people we don’t know in empty apartments or working alone in offices. It was helpful to have a class geared specifically towards dealing with these scenarios as well as tools that our team can use in other areas of their lives. Silvia Smart and Eric Gorman gave us positive, encouraging instruction while boosting our self-confidence.
Our group ranges in age from 26 years old to 65 years old with varying degrees of physical limitations and disabilities. Some people were nervous about practicing in front of co-workers and concerned about their physical abilities, but quickly warmed up to the relaxing atmosphere at the school. The instructors encouraged questions and participation and led the class in a way that kept the team interested and involved. It didn’t take too long before people were firing off questions and getting excited to participate in the training. As a supervisor, it was great to have the entire team in one room without having to isolate certain people by physical ability.
In the end we had an incredible instruction session and a memorable team building experience. Silvia is already working with us to help build on the class for next year.
I am thankful for the instructors at the Tulen Center and the instruction that they offered to our company.
