WHAT YOU LEARN

Throughout the certification process you will be taught
how to deploy 4 key modules. Each module
consists of several other course segments that make up
the core teaching blocks of each module.
Modules can be deployed directly one after the other,
or over a few days depending on the audience you are
teaching the course too.

FIGHT PHYSIOLOGY

It’s crucial to be able to teach students at least a baseline of what happens to their body when faced with a potential interpersonal threat. This module of the course focuses on the physiological changes that take place in an interpersonal violent experience, with tactics to help a student deal with those automatic changes.

SITUATIONAL AWARENESS

People are typically not aware of their surroundings, especially in this day and age where everyone is glued to their smartphone. In this module, we teach you how to ensure that the students you train are situationally aware, and understand exactly what that means, and how to deploy it as a skill.

VERBAL JIU-JITSU

The number one priority in any potential violent encounter against other human beings is to be able to leave the area safely without ever getting into a ‘fist fight’. In this module you are taught how to teach others to apply our COATS method of deescalation, and other strategies and tactics.

PRIMAL DEFENSE

Focusing on high percentage, easily learned primal defense and offensive tactics, you will learn how to teach others how to keep themselves physically safe. The techniques you will learn are applicable to teaching someone with no previous background in using their body as a weapon, with the focus on being learned quickly enough to give a person a fighting chance.

HOW TO CERTIFY

We take certifying trainers to teach self-preservation very
seriously. As such, in order to certify to teach the
Weaponize-Your-Body course, you
are required to attend an in-person training course. This
is something you simply cannot, and should not learn at
a distance (i.e., online). The process is outlined below:

Our Service

STEP 1 - CERTIFICATION OPTIONS

Decide which certification option best suites your needs.
There are 4 certification options, 3 of which can be
booked anytime of the year. Your choices for anytime of
the year certification are either in Johannesburg
(South Africa), Perth (Australia) or Seattle (USA).
Alternatively, you can attend our yearly certification
course that takes place every August (email us for dates)
in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) or you can bring a
Train-The-Trainer to you.

STEP 2 - CERTIFICATION FEE & LICENSE

If you decide to certify individually with one of our highly
experienced train-the-trainer instructors the cost for
certification is US$2000. If you attend our yearly certification
course in Kuala Lumpur (held in August ) the cost of
certification is US$1500. Once you have certified, you will
then be able to teach the Weaponize-Your-Body course
for a full 12 months. Thereafter to keep your license active
a yearly license fee of US$700 is payable. This license fee
is renewable every 12-months.

STEP 3 - WEAPONIZE-YOUR-BODY CERTIFICATION

Regardless if you chose to certify one-on-one, or at our
yearly group certification training in Kuala Lumpur, you
will first be taken through the Weaponize-Your-Body
experience yourself as a student. This will allow you to
experience what your students will, when they go through the
course with you. You will then be taken through the material
as a trainer, giving you a deeper understanding of the
pedagogy we apply in teaching the Weaponize-Your-Body
course. Typically the whole process takes 2-days. You will
then be assessed. On passing your certification, you will be
given access to our online training course version of the
in-person course you just completed. In addition, you will
be given access to WYB trainer workbooks, logos, and more
that you can then use to market yourself, and the course.

STEP 4 - BOOKING YOUR CERTIFICATION

Once you have decided which certification option best
suites your needs, and at which certification centre you
want to attend, you then need to send us a mail with
your express of interest. The train-the-trainer who will
take you for your certification will then be in contact with
you. Once you and your train-the-trainer have secured a
date for you to go through the certification process, you
will be provided with a link to pay a non-refundable
deposit of US$500. The remainder of the certification fee
can be paid to your trainer on arrival at the certification
centre. You can send us a mail below:

FREQUENTLY-ASKED-QUESTIONS

If you have a question not answered below,
don’t hesitate to contact us.

+WHERE CAN I TEACH THE WEAPONIZE-YOUR-BODY COURSE?
You can teach the WYB course to any civilian audience. However, you cannot teach this course to either military operators or law enforcement officers. If you are interested in the courses we have developed for these audiences please send Rodney a mail.
+CAN I TEACH THE WEAPONIZE-YOUR-BODY COURSE INTEGRATED INTO OTHER DEFENSIVE TACTICS PROGRAMS?
We don’t put restrictions on anyone wanted to introduce concepts from the WYB course into other defensive tactics and or martial arts programs. However, you cannot certify anyone in the WYB course unless you teach it exclusively in the package you were trained to deliver it in.
+DO STUDENTS WHO DO THE WYB COURSE WITH ME GET A CERTIFICATE?
Yes they do. However this isn’t the same certificate you received. Your certificate allows you the rights to teach, the students who do the course with you simply recognises their participation in the experience (in other words, this doesn’t allow them to teach the course).
+ARE THEIR ANY CONTRACTS TO BE SIGNED?
Yes, we ask that you sign a simple contract stating that should you no longer want to be part of the Weaponise-Your-Body Team, and or you fail to renew your license, that you are no longer allowed to use the WYB intellectual property, including terminology, logos etc. This also means that you trainer certificate will no longer be valid. Trainer licenses are sent out on renewal and are only valid for a 12-month period.
+IS IT POSSIBLE TO BECOME A TRAIN-THE-TRAINER?
Yes it is. But we have incredibly high standards. Before you could even be considered to certify other trainers in the Weaponise-Your-Body course you first have to be certified yourself, and have shown overwhelming commitment to the course through teaching it. You will also be required to then certify in the Train-the-Trainers course.
