Current U.S. statistics for females being sexually assaulted during their lifespan is one in three. ONE IN THREE! Did you know it doesn’t matter how old or young you or your family member is? Did you know that there is a good possibility that the rapist is known by the victim? We all know of others that this has happened to as young girls or adults. We carry around with us the thought “but that wouldn’t happen to me…or my girl…or my partner” as a defense mechanism when the statistics are not in favor of proving that thought correct.
Do you or your teen know how to be safe in an elevator? In a parking lot? On a date? On that cellphone?
We have courses designed by a female for females. It doesn’t matter your size, shape, intellect, athletic abilities…we can educate you on ways to defend yourself and be SAFE. One new student recently commented, “It’s so easy to do!”
