Managing Violence Part 2 (diary entry)


This was the 18h hour of my work with Drum Kempo Ju Jitsu where I have been engaged in a teacher consultancy role. We are continuing with Joe Saunders’ Managing Violence course. Dissecting the anatomy of social violence, we looked at the de-escalation process.

Social violence comes from a place of insecurity as opposed to predatory/asocial violence which comes from a place of inflated superiority. This is why empathy is so important in order defuse a situation. We also began discussing trigger points and many different examples of why people might feel slighted.
