Reactionary Zones Definition of Success: To understand more about pairing the decisional process with the lack of time and managing space.
People have a hard time managing distances so let's work on understanding, seeing and believing.
We see people making the same self protection decisions at 25 ft, 12 ft and 6ft so we wanted to offer this class to understand how fast violence happens, limited choices based on distance, and making the BEST decision possible based on the space and time available.
Anthropologist Edward T. Hall defines four distance zones maintained by healthy, adult, middle-class Americans in his book, The Hidden Dimension. This is an intriguing book explains “proxemics” and the difference in “distance awareness” among many cultural groups. There are several “aspects” of proxemics. The one that Hall writes about is the distance maintained between people when they are communicating. He named his distances or zones Public, Social, Personal & Intimate.
In self protection distance management, we can use Hall's research to our purpose by measuring the violence options available to THE BAD PERSON and measure the options available to US to react + act = respond.
We have named these 4 spaces "Reactionary Zones" and have broken these 4 spaces down to simple terms. You have the MOST time to react (25 feet and beyond) You have SOME time to react (12 feet to 25 feet) You have the LEAST time to react (6 feet to 12 feet) You have NO time to react (under 6 feet).
This clinic is NOT about techniques and tools. It is about recognizing DISTANCES quickly and making the BEST decision based on the space and time available.
Not everyone learns, retains, and recalls information the same so I designed this class to appeal to the most common learning styles. I will use colors, numbers, a graft, words on slides, verbal, images and activities to help you understand Reactionary Zones. You see, our brains are NOT necessarily word processors, they are mainly IMAGE processors.
One thing that is common among most people when learning is repetition. This is a MUST. Why did I chose to teach Reactionary Zones this way? Well…………
Reactionary Zones is an online presentation for EVERYONE!
Ages 13 and above
A bit more to know:
This class is usually scheduled once a month. Just click on the SCHEDULE and scroll through each month. You will see Reactionary Zones and a link to register.
IBDDCI courses AFTER January 2022 will include basic RZ information but the "meat and potatoes" will be in this 3 hour class.
If you want Reactionary Zones in greater detail and would like to use our AWESOME RZ SLIDES in your IBDD classes, then you need to participate in a 3 hour ZOOM presentation for some continuing education.
Our RZ is NOT really a "certified" program that stands alone. RZ is something that our Image Based Decisional Drills Instructors present in their IBDD classes. If you want your "group/members/club" to get detailed information on RZ, then I would encourage you to invite them to join our online class or set up a private ZOOM lesson with you and your crew.
Public RZ are scheduled roughly once a month, are $40 per person and you are most welcome.
Do you prefer a "one on one" session? It is roughly 3 hours and is $199 for a private session.
You will receive a Reactionary Zone Certification of Competition via email.
PRIVATE GROUP CLASS are very popular. I will set you up in Eventbrite with a passcode that YOU give out to people YOU invite.
$49.99 per person PRIVATE GROUP CLASS
You will receive a discount code after class that gives you 10% off IBDD KITS, NO KITS or one of our 3 Smart Choices learn systems for children.
FYI, this information is so valuable we would love to include this 2 hour sessions in our 2 day IBDDIC course but we just don't have the time.
Please make note that there are no refunds and we will not move you to another session if you are unable to attend (aka forgot, made other plans, etc.).
