Women's Self Defense
Class Length:  4 hrs
Location:  Announced with each class
Cost:  $30.00
 
You have car insurance, home-owner's insurance, life insurance, health insurance… 
 
What insurance do you have against being the victim of a violent crime? A self-defense training program that offers education and training is the best opportunity to learn to handle almost any situation that may occur.
 
Attacks on women happen in every part of our country, our state, and in every city and town.  Attacks on women do not discriminate against race, age, appearance, social status, size or build.  Attacks on women are equal-opportunity offenses!!  You have two choices:  Fight back, or do nothing when it happens.
 
Doing Nothing versus Fighting Back
 
Doing nothing against a violent attack is the biggest risk of all because it makes resistance and escape later far more difficult. Worse, statistics show that doing nothing actually increases the likelihood that violence will escalate, especially when the crime is rape. The most profound example involving resisting (doing something) versus submitting (doing nothing) was a Department of Justice study of rape:
 
-Rapists do not normally pre-arm themselves with weapons. Only 23 percent of 1.6 million cases studied involved knives or guns. [The major exception to this are rapists who break into a residence; 96 percent grab a knife from the kitchen.] 
-Approximately 51 percent of women resisted in some form, ranging from screaming to fleeing, to fighting back; the remaining 49 percent did nothing. 
-When broken down between resistance or submission, there was only an increase of two percent in the injury level to the women who resisted. 
 
 
What this class offers
 
Education:
 
You will learn in this class the fundamentals of home security, situational awareness, prevention, offender psychology, survival mindset, types and proper use of personal weapons, and principles / techniques to prevail against an attacker.
 
Scenario based training:
 
Face-to-face with violence, your first split-second problem is not “what he is going to do”, but, "what are you going to do?" Scenario training against violence answers that question.  You can make mistakes and learn from them before it becomes a life or death situation!
 
Knowing how to prevent a situation or how to handle yourself when confronted with violence is the difference between becoming a victim, or just another statistic in a police report.
