BE AWARE AND PROACTIVE!
A perpetrator expects a female to try to run away, cower, beg, plead and/or cry. When she steps into the storm, it messes him up as he isn’t use to this reaction. There are many things that a female can learn to do to protect herself.
Learning self-defense not only helps prevent attacks but also builds self-esteem. Individuals learn to determine their personal, physical and emotional boundaries.
Consider training to be “Life Extension Insurance”.
Training is offered to females starting at age 5.
No pass or fail; just a commitment to yourself AND EMPOWERMENT.
There are no guarantee’s in any personal safety/self-defense training course. However, it’s better to do something rather than nothing. Again, knowledge is a powerful tool.
