Armed Self Defence

The UK has seen increases in violent crime with a growth in the use of weapons. Westlake has the skills to train staff how to manage, control and ultimately escape from these frightening situations.

All training in this field is based upon the principle of last resort with the emphasis placed upon diffusing and escaping from an attack – however there can be situations where these preferred options are not available.

Training is in Firearms (long & short barrel), sticks, baseball bats, bottles, knives and syringes.

Westlake would prefer never to train in this area, however regrettably staff are facing assaults with weapons. Weapons training will not prevent an incident; however it will aid escape and reduce risk.
