Our courses are taught by instructors who have been certified directly by the course originators at defenduniversity.com. The course was developed over a period of several years with hundreds of women in a sort of living laboratory that dealt with the most common sexual assault scenarios researched from real life attacks. The techniques were refined using full contact responses to full power attacks from male role players. And the program continues to evolve.
According to the U.S. Dept. of Justice, one out of every four women will be attacked or raped in her lifetime. Look at these alarming statistics:
Women who resist are twice as likely to escape injury as others. According to the Women’s Self Defense Institute, an analysis of 3,000 actual assaults showed that half of the attackers fled from a woman who was willing to resist! The key, however, is to learn how to effectively resist.
If we can save even one girl or woman from a sexual assault, all of our efforts will have been worth it! This class is for women and teens and is taught in a 2-hour format.
