The Managing Violence Podcast was launched in 2018 by violence management specialist and lifelong martial artist, Joe Saunders. Having dedicated his working life to protecting the vulnerable and educating the world about the realities of violence, Joe established the Managing Violence Podcast as the preeminent destination for interviews with true global thought leaders in self-protection – from the hard skills to the soft skills and everything in between.
Since inception, the MVP has featured a who’s who of the self-defense and violence management world and more illustrious names are added to the (free!) archive every week.
Managing Violence Podcast: #ForTheProtectors
Joe Saunders started training martial arts at the age of four, created a “Playground Police” force to protect bullied kids at the age of six, and has been fascinated with violence management and protection ever since. As an undergraduate psychology student in Brisbane, Australia, Joe took a part time job bouncing in local night clubs. This exposure to real world violence fanned the flames of his desire to protect, and led him into roles including executive protection, armed protection, hospital security and senior violence management education roles.
He holds instructor/coaching certifications in the following systems:
- Krav Maga
- ISR Matrix
- Defensive Tactics (PPCT, ASP, BodyCuff, Firearms, Tactical Self Defense)
- Aggressive Behaviour Management for Healthcare
