“I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to yourself and your team for providing the recent self defence training program to Council’s Parking Officers.
The training program you designed personally for the Parking Officers gave them a very real base from which to build their skill levels. The fact that your program dealt with the mental and emotional sides of confrontation allowed participants to view confrontation from both sides and therefore understand situations from all viewpoints.
All of the staff who participated in the training indicated that they would very much like to continue this type of training, with your company, in future. This is feedback that I have not witnessed before from any type of training program in my 15 years within Local Government.
Staff have relayed to me that they were extremely happy with the relaxed, supportive and interactive manner in which you delivered the program. I have been advised that all staff actively participated in conversations and the physical self defence component of the course.
Once again I would like to express the appreciation of Kogarah City Council for providing Council with this training course. Council looks forward to working with your company to expand this type of training in future.”

“The former Marrickville Council has utilised the services of the Sydney Self Defence Centre for the Rangers and Parking Officers `Stay Safe Program’ for over 8 years.
This program is attended by our Rangers and Parking Officers every 8 weeks, on an ongoing basis. It has been highly beneficial as noted by all staff, especially in building their levels of confidence and the understanding of human behaviour.
The manoeuvres, techniques and knowledge gained during these ongoing sessions have now become instinctive for the Officers and this has been demonstrated in several actual situations.
Chris is an outstanding trainer, totally professional, personable and extremely knowledgeable. He has been an essential element in Councils commitment to improve the skill levels of Officers, in order for them to effectively reduce confrontation and to keep themselves safe on the street.
I would highly recommend the services provided by Chris and his team.”
