ABOUT THE SEPS WOMEN’S SELF-DEFENSE PROGRAM
A Free Personal Safety & Self-Defense Program
The SEPS (Situation Effective Protection System) Women’s Self Defense Free Online Course, is a 9 module program that aims to introduce women to an array of subjects that concern their personal safety, from sexual assaults to potentially abusive partners (both emotionally and physically). Each module looks at a separate issue of self-protection and personal safety. At the end of the program, you should be empowered to predict, identify and avoid violent situations and the individuals who design and orchestrate them.
Before working through the 9 modules (our suggestion is to study one a week – there is a large amount of content and a lot of information to digest) it is advisable to first read the foundations section of the course as this introduces you to some fundamental concepts and principles that are referred to throughout the modules, and will help give you a better understanding of the module’s content.

This course isn’t simply a list of do’s and do not’s, nor does it prescribe a set of safety rules you should follow, instead it looks at educating and empowering you, so that you are able to make dynamic risk assessments of the situations you find yourself in where harmful intent may be present.

Each self-protection module will give you the information you need to help you predict, identify and avoid violence before it occurs. It will also provide you with a lot of background information as to why predatory and aggressive individuals act and behave the way they do. This information isn’t given simply to increase your head knowledge around the subject, but so that you are better able to understand how and why you should respond to them and their threat in a certain way. The focus of the course is on understanding and adopting personal safety habits that will harden you as a target, and prevent you from appearing on predatory individual’s radars, and if you are for whatever reason picked up and targeted, are able to understand their actions and behaviors which indicate that, they hav harmful intent towards you and that you are in danger. With this advance warning you can put into play strategies for extracating yourself from the situation.
