"Women self defense looses its seriousness, when its limited to a demo or just some tip & tricks. Even though there are few people concerned & serious about the issue, but the knowledge about the subject are limited to few people and the myths of the self defense / martial arts blinds the common mass." Safety Specialist Franklin Joseph

My job is to prepare you to deal with Shock, Pain, Surprise, Violence and Limitation of one's Age and Body, as the Criminal on the street does not have ethics of fair play, skill set and honor of a martial artist and he won't stop till he fatally hurt you or take away your dignity.
Introduction

Mr. Franklin Joseph is a Women Safety Empowerment & Women Self Defense Specialist and runs his BadAzz Combat Academy training center teaching Israeli Self Defense Krav Maga in Bangalore.

He is a internationally certified Senior Civilian Maga Self Defense Instructor (2003 batch) and a Regional Director of the International Krav Maga Federation ('IKMF') at Bangalore. He trained under and is certified by the Grand Master Avi Moyal, Chief Instructor, IKMF, Israel and has attended countless workshops by Krav Maga Stalwarts like Master Vicky KapoorMaster Shlomi MoyalMaster Gabi Noah and Master Amnon Darsa etc.

Under his mentor and Chief Instructor, Master Vicky Kapoor, Mr. Franklin has assisted various civilian combat workshops and Self Defense / Combat Training projects with PoliceVIP Protection Units and Military Special Forces.

Mr. Franklin Joseph, is also a Social Entrepreneur who designed and founded 'PowertoWomen.in', an organization which focuses on Girl Child and Women's Safety Awareness, Women Self Defense and Psychological Empowerment against Crime, Violence and Sexual Abuse, healing survivors of crime, violence and abuse etc.

He is also an author of various self-written articles in his blog 'FranklinJoseph.in' on the issues of women safety awareness and  women self-defense in India.

His 'Power to Women' Safety Awareness Workshops and Krav Maga Self Defense workshops are well received by more than 40 corporate clientage with the feedback showing not only the magnitude of Mr. Joseph’s knowledge, but also his public speaking skills which disseminate information on such a sensitive subject like abuse and violence. He always including gameshumour quotesrealistic scenario based drills and interactive liveliness in his workshop to de-stress and encourage more participation from the members.

He has been invited by many educational institutions of considerable repute to come and deliver talks on Women Self Defence, Safety Awareness and Krav Maga Self Defense. His specialization got him invitation to conduct his Power to Women workshops in various cities like MumbaiJaipur and Chennai also.

Mr. Joseph was born into the slums of New Delhi and was exposed to the world of crime and violence early on in his life and had to learned street awareness, predator instincts and no-rules violent street tactics to survive. He is also a survivor of sexual abuse as a child onto his youth, and has experienced the trauma of street gang violence, various knife attacks and escapes 2 bomb blasts and mob riots by God's grace and street awareness. Mr. Joseph spent many years working through the emotional toll which survivors experience and developed a first hand knowledge of preventing and fighting abuse, crime and violence.

An ardent worshipper of practical knowledge and real life experience, Mr. Joseph went to great lengths to learn the just emerging world of internet which proved to be the start of a very fulfilling and enterprising career for him as a web-designer. Having spent 11 years in the IT sector, Mr. Joseph felt compelled to leave the comforts of the corporate world to work in the social sector and retired as a Creative Director, Project Manager, Senior Website Designer and Search Engine Optimization Specialist.

He spent 7 years working with an NGO that focused on child labour where he came across many cases of abuse against women and children. He did extensive research on how much crime, violence and sexual abuse played a role in the lives of these children and women and what traumatic effects they faced due to its exposure.

Based on those experiences, he also founded 'PowertoKids.in' where the focus is to teach the children and parents how to deal with issues of violence and sexual abuse on children where the focus is prevent, avoid and escape instead of punches and kicks.

Having experienced and dealt with crime at a very personal level, the conventional world of martial arts with its rules did not appeal to Mr. Joseph, who recognized that criminals fight dirty without the honor, skill-set and rules of martial arts. Instead he chose Krav Maga, a tough, battle hardened, no rules, no holds-barred Israeli Combat System, the training for which fortified his conviction and grit to help survivors of crime like himself overcome the trauma of the crimes that they have been subjected to.

Mr. Joseph’s own experiences helped him understand that conventional martial arts school, while true to their art form, did not address the topic of crime prevention and safety properly especially when it came to Women Self Defense. Additionally, he saw that there are psychological and emotional angles that a women faces when it comes to self-defense, like fear, compulsions at home, insecurity as to strength, size, emotional ambivalence towards perpetrators, particularly spouses; which were not being effectively addressed in martial arts curriculum.

His critical analysis of these deficiencies in conventional martial arts and women self-defense programs has earned him the ire of peers in the industry who did not take too kindly at being criticized. However, driven by a strong desire to infuse a much-needed revolution in the women self-defense sector, Mr. Joseph has persisted in his vocal criticism of a deficient system of women self-defense, in-expert instructors and continues to advocate for greater innovation and appreciation of realistic scenarios while devising self-defense curriculum. He is all too conscious of the fact that this will, not only be well received, but necessary in view of how dangerous an incomplete understanding of crime prevention and self-defense can be for a person especially a women.

Thus, BadAzz Combat Academy was born cultivating his training of Krav Maga and his vision of an honest Self Defense training academy. His students have come to appreciate the straightforwardness with which he explains the reality of the training and many are grateful for how his classes have helped in improving their confidence.

He has pioneered many innovative training workshops in BadAzz Combat Academy including Knife Fighting Self Defense classes, Blind Fold tactical and Water Based Self Defense Drills with many more in the pipeline. He also started BadAzz Urban Warrior Apparels to help promote this radical concept and attitude of his institute.

Mr. Joseph’s students swear by his classes and have come to form a strong bond with their teacher and the academy. Some of these new programs under BadAzz Special Weapons and Tactics (B.S.W.A.T.) include Ninja Kubaton a pocket-size stick self-defense tactics that uses pressure points, more effective than pepper spray; Knife Fighting and Knife Self Defense designed for women and men to offensively use this weapon for self-defense and Collapsible Baton a very effective self-defense tool against robbery and road rage. He has recently introduced 'Stop Crime on Women' where he merges Knife Fighting Tactics and Ninja Kubaton's Pressure Points tactics to help women who have to travel a lot or stay home alone.

He also designed and created a peer based education program, ' iTeach iPower' which would be either a Corporate Social Responsibility indicative or a volunteer indicative where the corporate female staff members or female college students would volunteer time to help educate school girl child students about Safety Awareness and Self Defense. Thus the role model are women themselves... Empower the girl child by women power!

Mr. Joseph, in essence, represents the changing face of self-defense especially women self-defense education. He is among the pioneers who have recognized that as crime is dynamic, changing and adapting, so should crime prevention and fighting tactics. He has tirelessly, and often at great personal sacrifice, overcome enormous hurdles to advance the cause of safety. No matter what the cost, he is clear that he will achieve his mission of a safer world through proper education, training and a holistic approach to self-defense

He has been featured widely in the media including Times of India, Hindustan Times, Bangalore Mirror, DNA, Deccan Herald etc., Magazines like Tehelka, 080 Bangalore, Bengaluru Pages, LiveMint.com, GlobalPost.com, TimeOut Bengaluru, etc., TV shows and News Channels like ZeeTv, CnnIBN, NDTV 24x7, TV9 News, Swarna Channel, Aaj Tak, Headlines Today, Times Now etc and is relentless in pursuing his goal of a safe world, free of abuse and crime especially for girl-child and women.
