Community Self Defense Courses
ICSAVE-Ultima Krav Maga Community Self Defense Partnership
ICSAVE is proud to partner with one of the premier self-defense organizations in Arizona!
Ultima Krav Maga was the first certified and licensed studio in Southern Arizona. Indeed, all black belts in Arizona under the United States Krav Maga Association (USKMA), started at Ultima. Celia and her dedicated team of certified instructors share our core belief that every citizen, when provided with appropriate knowledge, skills, and abilities, can protect his or her communities from preventable injury and death. Their enduring mission is to empower all people to stand up for themselves, and teach others how to protect themselves and their loved ones. In the words of Krav Maga Founder Imi Lichtenfeld, this is done “so that one may walk in peace.”
Celia and her team offer a variety of individual or group self-defense, fitness and tactical gun programs. Mention that you heard about Ultima Krav Maga from ICSAVE and you will receive a FREE 3 DAY PASS! For further information about this or any other life-saving courses, please contact Celia at email@example.com or us direct at firstname.lastname@example.org
Bleeding Control for the Injured (B-Con)
In September of 2014, NAEMT announced a new education course to teach civilians evidence-based, life-saving bleeding control techniques shown to dramatically increase casualty survival. Called “Bleeding Control for the Injured,” aka “B-Con,” this course was developed in response to the Hartford Consensus led by Dr. Lenworth Jacobs, and at the request of Dr. Norman McSwain, who served as a member of the Hartford Consensus working group.
B-Con teaches participants the basic life-saving medical interventions, including bleeding control with a tourniquet, bleeding control with gauze packs or topical hemostatic agents, and opening an airway to allow a casualty to breathe. The course is designed for NON tactical law enforcement officers, firefighters, security personnel, teachers and other civilians requiring this basic training. B-Con is consistent with the recommendations of the Hartford Consensus on Improving Survival from Active Shooter Events.
NAEMT partners on this and all other trauma initiatives with the American College of Surgeons (ACS). Recently, ACS launched a new website, bleedingcontrol.org that includes a new instructor portal for the B-Con course. This new portal houses all of the B-Con course materials, and will allow B-Con courses to be registered so that ACS and NAEMT can track our progress in training the public in basic bleeding control. There is no cost to use this portal, to access the course materials, or to register courses.
All NAEMT instructors are invited and encouraged to register as a B-Con instructor with ACS. For more information on the national bleeding control initiative, please visit www.bleedingcontrol.org.
