Women’s Personal Safety Seminar

June 18, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm


Instructor: Alessandro Padovani, Safer Faster Defense

Choose to take control of your safety.  This seminar is designed to meet women’s specific personal safety needs in the streets, the workplace, and at home. In addition to teaching personal safety tactics, our goal is to empower women through knowledge of the emotional and psychological processes that take place during a confrontation.

Choose to be a resource and an inspiration to other women in your life.

We focus our instruction on:

• Awareness and avoidance of danger and confrontation

• Verbal de-escalation during a confrontation

• Fear management and proper mindset during a confrontation

• Simple, intuitive tactics to protect yourself when your safety is threatened


… Alessandro Padovani…. Today, he was a mentor… And he was a big, bad, reactive attacker. He helped me find some physical, mental, and emotional boundaries, and then push those back and find my motivation. I learned some of the lengths I would go to in order to get myself home to my family. They are MY biggest motivators.
He teaches women’s personal safety, among many other things. He can be found at Bristlecone Shooting Training & Retail Center in Lakewood. He is another part of the bigger picture that is I.C.E. training: real world scenarios, building on instinctual behavior, not scripted movements. There is a benefit here, whether your interest is simply physical and mental fitness, self defense, confidence building… or all of these and more. I don’t train in these scenarios because I’m “living scared”. I choose to train in these scenarios because I want to keep physically and mentally fit in a realistic, pragmatic, empowering manner that can withstand time and age. This is my path.
