Welcome to Verbal Judo

VERBAL JUDO is a tactical communication training course. Dr. George Thompson Ph.D. is the President and Founder of the Verbal Judo Institute. He has applied his diverse experience, including ten years as an English Professor, as well as five years as a Police Officer, to create an internationally recognized training program in Tactical Communication.

VERBAL JUDO is offered as a 1 and 2 day training program. The principles and tactics taught enable graduates to use "Presence and Words" to calm difficult people who may be under severe emotional or other influences, redirect the behavior of hostile people, diffuse potentially dangerous situations, perform professionally under all conditions and achieve the desired outcome in the encounter.

    More Information

    If you're scheduling training for more than 5 or 6 people at your facility, you should consider on site training. This focused, cost-effective training option can save you 25-30% or more compared to individual tuition prices. Training at your facility allows us to zero in on your specific requirements.


    Verbal Judo courses are conducted at your training site for your department, agency, school district, health care facility, business, or organization. We tailor each course to the needs of the client and create a program that is specific to those needs.

    Our instructors bring to the classroom an exciting, entertaining and powerfully informative Verbal Judo presentation. Students will leave the class with new motivation and a collection of skills that can be put into use immediately.

    There is no limit on the number of students that may attend the class. Our professional fee is billed on a per day basis. You may also consider opening the training to others as a cost sharing option.
