REALTOR Self Defense by RNRBJJ & Your SoCal Loan Man   Leave a comment

As many of you know, among the many hats I wear, I am also a loan officer helping people with home loans  (If you ever need to get(if you ever need to get pre-approved for a home loan or want to refinance, contact me!).  After doing it a while, I have met some really great REALTORS!  Unfortunately, if you have watched the news, more and more REALTORS have been attacked at their open houses or showings.  Beverly Carter, RIP, was killed last year it such an instance.

This prompted me to want to start making very simple videos for REALTORS to watch and practice together.  Of course it is better if I could refine the techniques in person to make sure they understand all the little nuances, but I figure at least putting something out there is better than them having zero options to attempt in the event of an attack.

Here are just a few we put together one day.  Of course as a martial artist I know that every situation is different and some watching the videos with some self defense background may recommend other options.  These are just a start of a series I hope to continue.

Again, these are very basic techniques.  I would prefer to share these in person to help with all the nuances.  For example on the first video, many people forget to tighten up their neck making the attacker’s grip hard to hold and, or, forget to cross their arms in front of them to prevent eating a knee as they bend down slightly.  I have at least a dozen self defense moves for the situation shown in the first video.  I just chose the one that had the least moving parts in hopes the little bit of knowledge may make a difference.

Hope the REALTORS who come across these will take the time to practice.  Always be aware of your surrounding.  When scheduling private showings, please do not do it alone.  If you have to make sure you let people know where you are at all times and that you set up a time to contact someone when you’re showing is done so people know you are safe.

Don’t forget to stop by my SoCal Loan Man website at http://www.socalloanman.com if you need to get pre-approved for a home loan or you would like to refinance.  I serve all of California!  The beauty of technology!
