Other videos for ground defense to follow such as: getting up properly, defending while being punched, grabbed, and other attacks.
Science has discovered within the past two decades that the neuropathways in our brains are pliable... this is called neuroplasticity. This means we can selectively rewire our brains which then changes our behaviors. This is not done by taking a pill or reading a book. It takes introspection along with the key requirement - the desire for change. These are large and sometimes confusing words, so let's de-mystify all this brain talk and really understand what's going on. For example, you've likely heard of your "fight/flight/freeze" instincts. That instinct comes from the part of the brain we will focus on in this class. (Q&A session included.) Grow your emotional maturity and reach those lofty goals. Knowing how certain parts of your brain are designed and their underlying responsibilities will empower you to partner with your brain to become your most effective You!

In the event of a disaster, it is important that community organizations and businesses can continue to operate. This is especially true for those organizations who provide essential services to community members, as many small organizations and businesses do. This session explores the concept of Continuity of Operations Planning in order to be prepared in case of such an event. We will look at elements of the plan and planning process, including community partnerships for mutual aid and support; staff and volunteer safety and accountability; and back filling of positions vacated by disaster response or other activities.
How do you make people love you when you�re looking for a job, trying to get a raise or promotion, or trying to build your business? This workshop will help you whip your elevator pitch into shape.

How to Thrive Despite Everyday Chaos & Overwhelm You’re constantly being asked to do more with less. Everyone from C-level execs to associates, in every industry, are under the same pressure. We pretend this is a temporary situation, but it’s here to stay. And the only way to address it isn’t just to change the way you work, but change the way you think. If you don't have a proactive strategy in place, stress remains the obstacle keeping you from the life you want. The key to shifting out of overwhelm mode and into one of focused productivity is to stop managing stress–and start leveraging energy. Stress isn’t going anywhere; energy, however, is a finite resource. I’ll show you ways to shift your cultural attitudes, personal habits, expectations, and practices so that you can do more than just ‘get by’ during this time of not-enough; you can thrive.
In the 21st century we will see America�s greatness hinge on our ability to leverage the collective human capital of the American people. President George H. Bush�s legacy of a �thousand points of light� extending and connecting communities reminds us of the importance of everyday people accepting the responsibilities of citizenship with a clear sense of purpose, duty, and honor. The challenge that confronts our society is how to translate the abstract obligations associated with being a member of a community to concrete action that is focused on meaningful social, political, and economic change. In this course students will consider how individual rights, and associated obligations, can transform general commitments to service into a robust model of community-engaged leadership. We will focus how the methods of democratic engagement and redefine systems, organizations, and institutions that structure issues confronting our society. We will problematize key ideas tied to charity, volunteerism, and service to illuminate a method of democratic engagement, connected to a form of community-engaged leadership, which is focused on creating positive community impact. This course is designed for students that are beginning to seriously consider their role as community-engaged leaders. In this course we examine how the complacency included in most conceptions of public action not only fails to achieve democratic ideals, but also constitutes a larger threat to democratic institutions that rely on meaningful social, political, moral, and economic engagement. We will problematize contemporary conceptions of public action in order to more fully understand the components of engagement. Through readings, discussions, dialogue, deliberation, and service-learning pedagogies, this course will give you the opportunity to learn about theories and applied actions of democratic engagement. This process should constantly force you to question the relationship between the �world as it is� vs. �the world as it should be.� The course will highlight the relationship between attention and activity, as these concepts relate to maintaining a meaningful engagement practice. The goal will be to use the engagement framework included in this course to complete projects that are co-produced and develop the democratic efficacy/capacity of those working to address serious community issues. Students will also be encouraged to consider how the methods of democratic engagement and community-engaged leadership intersect their academic disciplines and future professional careers.

In this class we will look at how to write down a goal in a way that can be analysed to check how feasible it is and whether it is a worthwhile thing to do. We will explain how the ‘SMART’ acronym is used to ensure the goal is written in such a way that it stands a very good chance of success. We will also consider how to break down large and difficult goals into smaller more manageable chunks, and then turn the subsequent actions and tasks into a time phased plan for monitoring purposes.
In this class, we will define what is meant by goals. We will also look at the power of writing down your goals and the positive impact of clear well-formed outcomes and plans before we do anything.
