Reactionary Zones Definition of Success: To understand more about pairing the decisional process with the lack of time and managing space.
Anthropologist Edward T. Hall defines four distance zones maintained by healthy, adult, middle-class Americans in his book, The Hidden Dimension. This is an intriguing book explains “proxemics” and the difference in “distance awareness” among many cultural groups. There are several “aspects” of proxemics. The one that Hall writes about is the distance maintained between people when they are communicating. He named these distances or zones Public, Social, Personal & Intimate.
Because of Halls framework, we KNOW people can FEEL the pressure of whether the person belongs in that ZONE/SPACE. In self defense, we need to think about how fast violence happens, limited choices and making the BEST decision based on the space and time available.
People have a hard time managing distances so let's work on understanding, seeing and believing. Standing still is a bad idea but we are presenting this way to help you understand how TIME and SPACE effects your ability to respond. In self protection distance management, we can use Hall's research to our purpose by measuring the violence options available to THE BAD PERSON and measure the options available to US to react + act = respond.
We have named these 4 spaces "Reactionary Zones" and have broken these 4 spaces down to simple terms. You have the MOST time to react (25 feet and beyond) You have SOME time to react (12 feet to 25 feet) You have the LEAST time to react (6 feet to 12 feet) You have NO time to react (under 6 feet).
Reactionary Zones is an online presentation for EVERYONE!
Ages 13 and above
A bit more to know:
2 hours ONLINE (might a bit late due to questions so plan on 2.5 hours)
If you want Reactionary Zones in greater detail and would like to use our AWESOME RZ SLIDES in your classes, then you need to participate in a 2 hour ZOOM presentation for some continuing education.
Public RZ are scheduled roughly once a month, are $40 per person and you are most welcome.
Plan on 2.5 hours. After we are done with the "public" class, I invite you to stay on a bit longer and ask me questions.
PRIVATE GROUP LESSONS are very popular. I will set you up in Eventbrite with a passcode that YOU give out to people YOU invite.
Do you prefer a "one on one" session? It is roughly 2 hours and is $82 for a private session.
You will receive a Reactionary Zone Certification of Competition via email.
You will receive a discount code after class that gives you 10% off IBDD KITS, NO KITS or one of our 3 Smart Choices learn systems for children.
FYI, this information is so valuable we would love to include this 2 hour sessions in our 2 day IBDDIC course but we just don't have the time.
Please make note that there are no refunds and we will not move you to another RZ session if you are unable to attend the session you registered for BUT we are happy to share! We record each class and it will be available for a limited time for the main purpose of sharing with quests that have a last minute change of plans.
