Why called Trident (TSIS)?
Called Trident because it is a three pronged concept of learning:
1. The confidence to confront an aggressor.
2. The ability to apply realistic techniques.
3. The development of character through pragmatic instruction.
The New Trident Insignia (Est. 2012)
The new trident design is set above the 'T' for Trident. The diamond shape and colour-code represents what is loosely termed in the British Army as a 'unit flash'.
This design was decided upon because ERT's Training Director had completed 22 years loyal service to the Crown of England.
The colour green was specifically chosen because of proud and former connections with the 1st Bn The Worcestershire & Sherwood Foresters Regiment.
What is Self-defence?
Self-defence is the generic term most people use to describe their behaviour when employing a physical response to a confrontation of a violent nature.
Self-defence is predominantly about the implementation of a physical response via the application of a technique or a series of techniques.
The phrase self-defence in regards to the Law can be confusing because the term ‘defence’ refers to oneself, others and as well as one’s own property. In general the phrase self-defence is commonly acknowledged and therefore is accepted in colloquial speech.
In essence, self-defence is about survival and our own natural instinct to stay alive and intact when attacked.
What is Personal Safety?
Personal safety is probably more important than self-defence because in reality it is our first line of defence.
If we can master and practise subconsciously the basic principles of personal safety we then avoid taking unnecessary risks within society.
If we employ common sense in regards to our actions on a daily basis, in turn we then limit the possibility of having to employ self-defence measures.
Personal safety is predominately about prevention whereas self-defence is primarily about cure and therefore prevention is certainly better than cure!
Skills for Security (SfS)
Gaining a Skills for Security (SfS) qualification is beneficial for two very good reasons. Firstly, by gaining an industry related qualification increases your employability. Secondly, if you are interested in a SfS accredited course regards its content and you attend such a course, your subject-matter knowledge will be enhanced!
Stay Alert ~ Stay Alive!
Some victims of violent crimes cannot avoid becoming a target of the modern day assailant. However, many could have if only they had been more in-tune with their surroundings and were extra vigilant to what was going on around them.
If basic personal safety protocols are adhered to regarding normal daily patterns of life the chances of becoming the victim of crime will be reduced.
