Course Description.

Dr. George Thompson, founder and president of the Verbal Judo Institute, has
always valued the importance of realistic martial arts training in the development
of a true Peace Warrior. He has now joined forces with Jack Hoban, an
internationally known martial artist, Marine Officer, and subject matter expert for
the U.S. Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP). Together they have
developed a comprehensive training program that combines Cross Cultural
Tactical Communication, Ethics, and Physical Protection Skills. This program
covers the skills necessary to develop professionals capable of de-escalating
conflict when possible, physically stabilizing the scene when necessary, and
possessing the ethical decision-making skills to know the difference. The
concepts are universal and can be adapted for use in any environment, including:
military, law enforcement, mental health, business, education, etc.

Participants will:

 Become better “communicators under stress.”

 Develop a better understanding of moral values and ethics, and the art of
keeping the “moral compass” calibrated under stress.
 Learn how to avoid morale issues and “burn out.”
 Gain the ability to deal capably with cultural differences and gain insight
into what to do when cultural differences cannot be reconciled.
 Acquire (or enhance) realistic physical protection skills for use in the field.
