Corporate Training

Self Defense, Active Shooter, De-escalation and Team Building

You are looking for something different, a training that is relevant, empowering, and has excellent value for the investment of time and resources. You want a presenter who engages your team and teaches valuable skills and information they can use every day. Whether you are part of a human resources department, a safety committee or on an organizational board getting ready for a big conference or convention, you’ve come to the right place.

Presentations, discussions and hands-on trainings empower, impact and inspire. Eyes light up and heads nod eagerly as connections are made and shared. Spontaneous laughter is commonplace, along with, “Oh my gosh! Who knew?!”

The world, and even the workplace, present your team with scenarios that go beyond the on-the-job situations you have trained them to handle. Men and women out in the field, traveling for work, and even in the office or at home, are dealing with people and circumstances that present unforeseen risks. Go above and beyond, and give your team skills they will thank you for for the rest of their lives.

Corporate Self Defense Workshops

You care about the safety and well-being of every person on your staff. You know that the more positive your company culture, the more dynamic and productive your team.

Empower your employees with information tailored specifically to their concerns, along with easy and fun hands-on practice carefully guided by a 6th degree black belt who knows her stuff.

Provide your staff with an on-site custom-designed self-defense class and show them proof positive how much you care.

Surviving an Active Shooter Incident

You are ready to provide the safest possible environment for your employees. You’ve come to the right place.

Your team faces a vast array of situations both at the workplace and off the job. You want them to be as prepared as possible. Give them up-to-date information and hands-on experience for an event that is unpredictable, unfolds quickly and one in which fast decisions and actions save lives. When your team feels energized and empowered, they are more productive, focussed and present.

De-escalation Training

You and your employees are on the front lines. You need a training that effectively creates safety for your team as they encounter hostile, angry and aggressive people or situations.

Taming a potentially explosive encounter is scary. It takes experience and practice. Give your team a hands-on training that they will use for the rest of their lives.

Successful businesses create engagement through building a community within their workforce. Silvia Smart has been a key partner to Dr. Marten’s AirWair USA in fostering essential components of community. Those components are safety and well-being.

Silvia conducted a series of training courses for our staff that combined lecture, storytelling, demonstration, and both physical and verbal participation. It was so satisfying to hear my fellow Dr. Marten’s employees talk about how the training increased their confidence and sense of empowerment. The trainings were a great value for the time. And, they were a lot of fun! I’d recommend Silvia to any business looking to invest in the physical and mental well-being of their teams. Marisa Hodes, SPHR

Silvia provided multiple Self Defense classes for our team and the positive feedback from our employees was amazing. She really did a great job making our people feel comfortable and able to participate.

Our employees truly felt that the class was engaging, well thought out, and they learned a great deal. Some of them even went to a second class because they enjoyed it so much!

I would highly recommend Silvia for any company/group/individual trainings.

We are so grateful to have made the partnership and look forward to more wonderful classes in the near future. Rae Gargari

NAGA head instructor Silvia Smart throwing a punch
Silvia Smart, director of Naga recently delivered a 3-part self-defense class at our office. Silvia’s experience and foresight ensured that time spent in each class was maximized and rewarding. Although some topics associated with self-awareness/assessment and self-defense can be uncomfortable, Silvia ensured the atmosphere was conducive to learning and that students were focused while executing self-defense methods.  Students were encouraged by Silvia to have open discussion of experiences and she continually reinforced previous lessons learned. Silvia effectively facilitates conversation and leads students to think about self-defense in a multi-faceted way.  I would recommend scheduling Silvia in to teach self-defense to any group, young or old, male or female. It’s hard to deny Silvia’s passion for what she does! Jennifer Maze

Office Safety Committee Coordinator, HDR Engineering

For our safety and wellness program, I asked Silvia to come to our organization and conduct a two hour self-defense class for our employees. She delivered a customized session that addressed the specific concerns and needs of our staff, which enabled them to feel more empowered and confident. Our employees thoroughly enjoyed Silvia’s presentation style and her ability to engage the audience. I highly recommend Silvia to anyone looking for a self-defense class for their organization.
