Journalists in Metro Manila will undergo “Escape & Evasion Tactics Training” to improve their confidence and to be physically and mentally prepared in case of an actual threat to their lives or of their families. An advocacy of 777 Media Forum, an organization of broadcast journalists in Metro Manila, intends to teach journalists escape and evasion tactics through playing paintball. It is a reality game wherein playing journalists will be shot and also have the chance to shoot back to their opponents.

Trinidad explained that by playing paintball journalists will develop their skills in proficiency and learn the basic safety and responsible handling of firearms. The tournament will also improves the confidence of participating journalists and alleviate their fear of gun fire or by mere sight of firearms.
