Women’s Self Defense & Protection
Effective Training for Workplace Safety and College Campuses
Facing the possibility of being the target of a violent crime is frightening, but there’s no need for women to live a paranoid-filled life. Although you can’t control every situation, you can make smarter decisions, like avoiding unnecessary risks. Learn to trust your intuition and how to defend yourself. Make the phrase “I hit like girl” strike fear into every would-be rapist out there.
Scary Statistics BUT THIS IS THE REALITY
“Women between the ages of 15 and 24 who are attending college are four times more likely than other groups to be sexually assaulted. Most of these assaults occur during the “Red Zone,” defined as the beginning of a student’s first academic year through Thanksgiving break. While the average person associates sexual assault with violent attacks by strangers, in reality, close to 90 percent of campus sexual assault victims are acquainted with their attacker. Moreover, most sexual assaults on campus are committed by a small number of “repeat offenders.” In one study, 63 percent of the men who admitted to committing rape in college stated that they had committed an average of six rapes each.”- NAAG (National Association of Attorneys General)
Self Protection Program
Let’s face it. Even with all of the Campus Readiness programs, coalitions and overall good intentions of college administrations it’s our opinion that only the individual that can properly train to protect themselves against an attacker. It is proven that, through training, an individual can raise their situation awareness and significantly improve their chances of overcoming an attacker. Attackers aren’t playing by the same societal rules you are, so you can’t react as if they are. All you can ever really do is level the playing field and that is what MBMT’s Self Protection program is intended to do.
Women need to make self-protection a greater priority. According to statistics every two minutes a woman in America is raped, and one out of four women will be the victim of a violent crime. Having the delusion that it can’t happen to you or that it’s something that only happens to other people is the kind of attitude predators depend on. The more informed you are, the better prepared you’ll be in the event you are targeted by a predator. Reduce the risk factors by allowing MBMT to train your group through our Self Protection program.
