Verbal De-Escalation

De-escalate a tense situation using your voice! Train your voice! Learn to say NO! Learn to say STOP! Or use the Broken Record technique.

Use your voice

The #1 goal of self defense is de-escalation. Your voice is really important and powerful tool! We are socialized to be quiet, so you should  practice making your voice LOUD. Try shouting:

We're serious

We're serious

In stressful, unexpected situations, your body won't do things you're not used to doing. That's why you have to practice yelling, so you can alert bystanders that you're in danger.
