Learn how to prevent violence before it happens, using proven behavioural analysis and threat-detection methods. Behavioural intelligence expert Mathew Wann — author of Predicting Violence: How to Interpret Nonverbal Cues — will teach you how to become a ‘hard target’ in any environment.

With over 15 years of experience in nonverbal communication and behavioural analytics for Defence, Mathew Wann is a specialist in his field. As an instructor of front-line professionals, he gives first-responders and career combatants the tools to understand social and physical precursors to violence, as well as the dynamics of this ‘most primal human disorder’. As a coach and mentor, Mathew has also helped athletes and coaches to gain a competitive advantage in their sport by interpreting unspoken signals.

These ‘soft skills’ are the most important in any self-defence repertoire, regardless of the environment — after all, you can’t lose a battle you don’t have! Unfortunately, they are also the most neglected and rarely taught skills in the self-defence and security fields. So, Kinetic Fighting has now developed this expanded and publicly accessible version of its ‘Red Flags to Violence’ training module delivered to military and police.

In this session and its follow-up module, Dynamic Threat Management, KEF Mission Specialist Instructor Mathew Wann will teach you essential principles and tactics that are:

  • Suitable for civilians but proven by front-line operators
  • Adaptable to any social or professional environment
  • Backed by Mathew’s many years of career military experience and professional application.

You will also receive a FREE copy of the e-book Predicting Violence: How to Interpret Nonverbal Cues.**

 

In this module (‘Foxtrot’ in the KEF–IC syllabus), you will be taught the levels of situation awareness and how to apply them in everyday life. This includes theoretical and practical applications of active observation and dynamic scanning of an environment. You’ll then discover the four main motives that drive violent attacks, along with how these motives relate to violent attack (this information is vital in dynamic threat assessments, as it provides an insight into the mind of a potential attacker).

Next, you’ll be introduced to the nonverbal behaviours that typically precede acts of interpersonal violence. This is followed by the basic principles of immediate threat assessment, which complements and supports the applied combat-mindset principles taught in other KEF–IC modules such as Self-Protection Essentials (Alpha).

Through the Foxtrot module, you will develop:

  • situational awareness skills
  • confidence in observing and monitoring threat environments
  • an understanding of motivations for violence
  • the ability to rapidly detect potential threats
  • techniques to accurately analyse nonverbal behaviour.
