Knife crime has unfortunately become rife throughout the United Kingdom. According to the BBC, 285 people were fatal victims of knife crime in 2018. Many of the victims range from the ages of 18 to 24 years old. This large number of fatalities shows the severity of the issue and how the youth of today is being damaged due to this violent crime. Popular dramas such as EastEnders have used its television platform to highlight the issue in an attempt to educate the audience about the risks involved with carrying a knife.
Earlier this year, KMDT delivered a workshop detailing strategies to protect participants against some knife attacks that are commonly used by perpetrators. Feedback from those who participated determined the workshop as a resounding success. Due to popular demand, we have decided to launch a second knife crime workshop, which takes place on the 6th of July at 1pm at Roundwood Park School in Harpenden.
The second instalment of our knife crime workshop will focus on how the use of certain body language can act as a diffuser to a potentially volatile situation. The signs, which lead to a physical altercation, are often evident before any physicality occurs. Participants will learn how to detect these signs and be shown various strategies on how to safely resolve the issue using numerous psychological techniques that will be demonstrated. Participants do not need to have attended the first workshop in order to take part in this one.
Upon completion of this workshop, participants will have a thorough understanding of how to protect themselves against various knife attacks. This is a one not to be missed. Therefore, book now on the link below to reserve your place. Click the link below.
