“A lot of people seem to think that training in personal self-defense, particularly hand-to-hand self-defense, isn’t really necessary. In my experience I’d have to say that those people are absolutely incorrect. I don’t advocate people learning how to fight for the sake of fighting, or to go out and use what they know to purposefully hurt or injure others. Self-defense isn’t about that – it’s about training for events that you hope will never actually happen, but being ready for them if they do. It’s actually more about prevention and awareness than anything else, but you can’t be aware of danger if you stick your head in the sand and pretend it doesn’t exist. Instead I advocate that people learn about what dangers are out there and take the steps needed to be able to defend against those dangers if they’re ever confronted with them.”
Safeguard: Real Self-Defense for a Changing World, was edited and compiled by Alex Changho, the publisher of the best-selling series BULLYPROOF: Unleash the Hero Inside Your Kid, and founder of BULLYPROOF America, a non-profit.
“The good news is, just like dealing with bullying, there are lots of programs out there educating the public about self-defense,” says Changho. “The bad news is, just like dealing with bullying, a lot of these programs just don’t work when applied in real situations. The experts we’ve brought together in Safeguard have real results working with people.”
Duchetta’s involvement in Safeguard brings an effective, working solution to Arcadia. Along with the release of the book, Duchetta will hold free workshops, resources, and training for the community.
