Ubisoft is taking its self-improvement titles to a whole new level as it announced this week that it is currently developing a self-defense training title for Kinect. Definitely a first-of-its-kind product, the game, entitled Self-Defense Training Camp, is designed to help users build their self-confidence, with the hope of allowing them to react more efficiently when facing tough, and potentially dangerous, situations. It’s also a double benefit title, as the training regimen combines fitness routines and defense drills designed to improve technique, stamina, composure and reflexes. And it’s all taught by a real-life self-defense coach.

It seems Ubisoft has timed this release perfectly, as bullying has been on the minds of Canadians following the recent tragic events brought about by one particular bullying case (the details of which I will not go into here). Self-defense is a well known confidence builder, and with the game’s real-time feedback, younger players should get the boost they need to handle difficult situations. It also includes a exercise routines meant to help users remain calm and composed, even while under stress. Self-Defense Training Camp is scheduled to release, exclusively for Kinect for Xbox 360, on November 8th.
