More than twenty teachers participated in the initiative

School violence: Company teaches teachers to defend themselves

Insecurity and violence in schools led the guardians of a company in London to create a personal safety course for teachers held this Saturday with the participation of nearly two dozen teachers.

Most participants are teachers in schools of primary and secondary school and some have gone through situations "unpleasant" in the classroom.

Teacher for 14 years, English / German, Isabel Almeida told the Lusa news agency that the trouble began early in his career. "I was young and short, they were teenagers, were angry and upset at the school. It was very difficult," he admitted, noting that "the blunders and insults" were and are the most frequent situations that confront in the classroom. It has never been physically attacked, but was "very close".

"I felt that [the student] was about to grab a chair to shoot me. My tendency was to remove me, but I could not get away from the classroom, had over 20 students there. I knew I had to do anything to try calm him, but I was indecisive, not knowing what to do, "he admitted.

So when he had knowledge of a self defense course for teachers, did not hesitate. As she reached the SMD (Martial Defense System) colleagues, some already with similar stories to tell, others only know how to act before any kind of violence, whether at school or in day-to-day.

The body posture of confidence and authority, short sentences and no room for discussion. They are concepts that teachers (all elements of special units of police forces) do not tire of repeating, over training.

The theory went to the practice and the teachers were asked to recreate situations of confrontation, some in the role of unruly students, others in their usual role.

Trainers Ricardo Lisboa, founder of SMD, Helder Pinto and Nuno Horta, will teach the "tricks simple but effective" that teachers can use when faced with a "less nice". The minister responsible has three similar actions for health professionals and schedule another one soon for journalists.
