MVP106: Mary Stevens – Soft Skills in Violence Prevention & Management

Happy holidays!

I am joined once again by Mary Stevens, an accomplished martial arts instructor and also lead instructor at Violence Prevention & Management UK. Mary is a lifelong learner and incredible teacher, so I took the opportunity to pick her brain about her last 12 months of study which includes seminars with the likes of Richard Dimitri, Pamela Armitage, Dr Tammy Yard McCracken, Rory Miller and me! To compare notes on how each of these world-leading instructors taught their “soft skills” material made for a great conversation.

We also touch on Mary’s important work with FairFight, bringing self-protection skills to disadvantaged girls in India.
