Women Self-Defense Workshop - Break Away Skills

It is not about how strong that attacker is, but how you can break away from his grip...

Women are generally vulnerable and we are thought to be vigilant, to fight, to SCREAM but will these tactics keep us safe? To some extent, yes, but the most effective way to stay safe is to learn to BREAK-AWAY.

Aaron LeBoutillier, Senior Security Consultant of AA International (AAI) provided us (staff and clients) with mind-blowing techniques and skills on how to break-away from one's attacker.
Aaron served in the British police force and during his tenure with the police force, he has seen video footages of victims being attacked and how each incident in itself presented an opportunity to escape - if the victims know how and when to do so. Size does not matter as the Break-Away skills are 100% physics and confidence, coupled with speed of reaction.

Aaron stated, "the most important element for the ladies is threat reduction and avoidance. A few small changes to the way you walk and carry yourself speaks volumes to a person who is thinking of attacking you. Confidence and owning the space you walk in is key. Having a good solid personal security platform and trusting no one but your mother is key to personal safety. The physical skills are secondary to this".
 
One must not compare martial arts with this break away skill as martial arts is a tradition that encompasses much more than just self-defense. It is a perfect pursuit to meet new people and developing one's mental character. Where else Break-Away Skills is about breaking free and running as fast as you can in the opposite direction to escape and / or raise the alarm!

Aaron Le Boutillier, Senior Consultant, (age 44) was born in Jersey, Channel Islands, UK. He started his career and interest in security working the nightclubs of Ropongi in Japan after which he joined the UK Police service. With an interest in defensive tactics, he started delivering disruptive passenger training to the airline industry and security training to football stadiums, hospitals and Immigration departments. In 1997, he left the UK Police force and started his own security consultancy company specializing in dealing with aggression. In 2001 he started a new consultancy company in Singapore where he expanded the services to crisis management, investigations and corporate security. In 2004 he survived the Tsunami in Thailand and wrote a best-selling book "And Then One Morning" about his experience and used that to deliver more realistic crisis management programs to corporates. In 2009, he expanded the business to Bangkok and concentrated on crisis management and corporate security and also worked closely with the Royal Thai Police with defensive tactics programs. Aaron joined AAI in 2012 as a senior consultant handling Security and Crisis operations for Thailand and the Philippines.

Roadside Assistance for a Peace of Mind

You've strapped into your seat, stretched your little toes, plugged in your phone for the trusted map app and turned the ignition. You anticipated to hear the roar of the engine to come alive but.... the only thing you hear is zeeeeeeeggg.....

Many things can go wrong in our daily lives - wife nagging, children screaming, coffee spilled on your favourite shirt, you got the sack. All right, that last bit is a little too drastic but you get the picture on what could be a bad day. Most of us would not think twice of hopping into our 4-wheeled machine and only to get stuck in it because the engine would not start. Or what's worse is that you are driving along the highway and the engine dies leaving you stranded right in the middle of the road under the scorching heat.

Since cars are complicated machines requiring thousands of parts to operate, it could stop working at the worst possible time. This is when roadside assistance service becomes extremely handy. In modern times, roadside assistance has become a must-have service for majority of car owners and usually it would be an added benefit under the insurance motor policy.
It is important to be prepared and feel confident while preparing for a road trip.

Here are 3 easy steps to ensure your road trip does not leave you in distress:-

Regular Maintenance

 It is good to ensure regular maintenance is done on your vehicle. When was the last time you brought your vehicle to your local service station? The simplest way to conduct a quick service check on your own is to pop up the hood and check the fluids including the oil, coolant, power steering and washer fluid. Next, keep an eye on your tyres to ensure it is not flat (or seems to be running out of air) and has the legal (safe) requirement of tread all before you hop into your vehicle. Do make sure you have an inflated spare tyre on standby and the necessary tyre jack equipment as well.

Roadside Assistance Hotline

 The best way to feel confident while on the road is to have the emergency roadside assistance hotline number stored in your phone. If your car is insured, you may be given a car sticker with the emergency hotline number plastered on it. Make sure you stick it on your windscreen if you do not already have it on our phone!

Mobile Phone + Power Bank

 These days, while waiting for your food to arrive at the restaurant or during TV commercials, your phone is your ultimate soul companion. The same could be said while waiting for help to arrive when you are stuck on the road. So make sure you have enough battery in your phone so you can start instagraming or facebooking away in your moment of distress!

You never know what the road has in store for you and nothing can spoil a road trip faster than car troubles. Should that unfortunate event happens, you do not want to be the damsel in distress with no help coming your way. So do make sure you become a member of a roadside assistance plan as you will get much more than a peace of mind as you will have the assurance that you will be looked after from the initial call through to the moment your vehicle is up and running again.
 
Asia Assistance (AA) has been providing roadside assistance since 1999 and has become a trusted brand in arranging towing to minor roadside repair. The scope of services that comes under the
Roadside Assistance umbrella includes:-

• Towing Assistance
• Referral to Service Centers / Panel Workshops
• Minor Roadside Repair
• Car Rental Referral
• Hotel Referral
• Emergency Message Relay
• Legal Referral

AA International's Regional Medical Director, Dr. Hashim Johan was recently featured in the ITIJ April 2015 Air Ambulance Review.

Dr Hashim has worked in the Singapore's renowned Tan Tock Seng Hospital's Emergency Room for 4 years and amongst his field of practice includes General Surgery, General Medicine, Orthopaedic, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Hands Surgery and Public Health. Thereafter, he pursued an active career in aero-medical emergency evacuation in both commercial and... air ambulances for the next 15 years, in which he has flown over 1500 missions all across the globe.

Here are some highlights of his interview:-

What do you enjoy most about your role as a medic on board air ambulance aircraft?

Dr.Hashim: I enjoy my practice in medicine, travelling and I enjoy anticipating a situation that is always changing. I am an adrenaline junkie.

What's the most memorable mission you have carried out so far in your career?

Dr.Hashim: There was a wing-to-wing transfer and the handing-over team accidently extubated the patient on the tarmac. As I was part of the receiving team, I had to intubate the patient as quickly as possible on the tarmac and in poor lighting with an impending storm coming in! The pilots and my nurse helped out. Without them it would have been extremely difficult. However, there was another mission that I did and I guess it was by far most memorable. I was in the Middle East and the patient had COPD, was 70 years old, had been bed ridden for a month and was oxygen dependent. Due to a lack of communication, the patient's condition was not clearly made to us, but the report came in as "fit to fly in a commercial aircraft". We managed to get the patient to the airport and as he was oxygen dependent we had to bring the portable oxygen with us. However, the airport security did not allow us to bring the oxygen through! During the commotion that followed and rounds of explanation, the patient collapsed - literally falling out of his wheelchair. As there was no clinic at the airport, I needed to get the patient on to the plane - where the nearest oxygen was - as quickly as possible. I decided to carry the patient in a "fireman's lift" and ran to the aircraft door - breaking all airport security protocols along the way and resulting in the airport police drawing their weapons on me. Thankfully, the airline crew allowed us onto the aircraft and the patient got his oxygen and survived.

More can be found on "A Day In the Life of A Medical Director" in the ITIJ APRIL 2015 Air Ambulance Review on page 41-42
