S.A.F.E is an educational awareness, crime-victim prevention program – encompassing strategies, techniques, options and prevention – that provides information that may reduce the risk of exposure to violence and introduces the physical aspects of self-defense. The program was created in 2000 by the National Self-Defense Institute Inc. (NSDI), a Florida-based nonprofit corporation that has created and manages public safety awareness programs.
