Defense for the Defenseless

Thousands of men and women are victims of sexual assaults each year.

The majority of these attacks happen because people were not taught to defend themselves properly and end up losing against their attacker.

67% of children are victims to sexual assault.
Principals can help lower these number by introducing self-defense classes in their schools, which will teach students how to defend themselves in dangerous situations.
Self-defense classes will teach students basic self-defense, like how to escape wrist grabs and bear hugs, which increases their knowledge during an altercation.

It is proven that once a student is taught how to defend themselves, then they are more likely to escape and survive an altercation, like a sexual assault.

Therefore, self-defense classes will aid in the hopefully, decreasing rates of sexual assaults.
