TZD For Travelers

Ports of Call Safety Program

Increasing and higher levels of crime and civil unrest in many Ports of Call you will visit, necessitate that you take matters into your own hands and not rely on outsiders to help you. 

Violence against tourists has become more violent and unwary people are more and more becoming victims.

No matter where in the world you will go, this personal protection course will help you to have the confidence to travel in safety and not become a victim.

From our extensive travels, we have found that the cruise lines downplay some of the dangers you will encounter while going ashore. Their only efforts to alert you might possibly be a short notice placed on your stateroom door with a general mention of “what to watch out for” when going ashore and to beware of pickpockets or maybe some areas of a city that are not safe.

This is all well and good but falls short of providing ways of “how to deal with it” when it occurs or hopefully, knowing some ways of “preventing it from ever happening in the first place.”

Note: This is the same course that is successfully taught to passengers on a major cruise line during their Grand Voyages throughout the world.

Why Would Someone Want to Take the Traveler’s Course?

 I don’t know about you, but when I first started going to all these foreign countries and remembering all the news I had heard first-hand and had read about some of the things that had happened to tourists, I had a bit of apprehension for our safety. 

Like the saying goes, “when seconds count, the police are minutes away.” I thought about that and said….”that isn’t acceptable to me.” That’s when I started working on the style of personal protection upon which this course is based.

Being an older person with numerous surgeries, infirmities of age and other things that cramped my way of doing things, I wanted a style that would fit my needs. What emerged was simple in form that avoided close-quarter, hand-to-hand combat, was  easy to remember, worked the way my body was able to move and gave me the confidence that would carry me through questionable situations.

Having a background of being in martial arts since 1970, I have compiled elements of personal protection that are not offered elsewhere and the moves used are designed to be used by most anyone that can hold a cane and has mobility. I was born in 1937 and know what it is to have the limitations due to physical infirmities and aging. 

Let me ask you….”Do you have insurance on your car?” If so, “Why?” Do you plan on having an accident? Of course not. No one does. You know you are a safe driver, but you are not too sure about the other driver and that’s why you have it.

The same with this course, it’s like insurance: “you hope to never have to use it, but if you do, you’ll be glad you did have it.” 

So, without further ado, here’s the complete course…regularly $199 discounted by 50%.
