Leaving for college can be a frightening time for parents and students. For many, it is the first time they will be completely apart from each other and it’s a time where important decisions need to be made regarding personal safety. We cannot always assume common sense will prevail and nothing bad will happen.
In fact, college statistics of violent acts and of sexual violence are staggering:
1 in 4 college females will be part of an attempted or completed rape act
Students aged 18 to 24 report about 526,000 violent crimes each year, according to the Violent Victimization of College Students report. Of those, 128,000 “involved a weapon or serious injury to the victim.
Much of self-defense is feeling more confident about ones self and being aware of your surroundings. We can help take the guess work out of self-defense for you and help you feel safer and more confident.
We offer small group classes, private classes for individuals, and large group seminars on campus or at our facility. We often get requests from parents who would like their daughters to take a class or two right before they go off to college and this is definitely something that we can help you with.
Self-defense should not be hard and does not take years of training. Self-defense is awareness and knowing that your attacker is not going to play by the rules, so neither can you. One must be ready to escape all situations and be aware of what they can and cannot do. Different body types and different physical attributes will determine what you can and cannot do. However, any one can protect themselves!
Butch Hiles Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & MMA, LLC, will teach you the essential skills and tactics to defend and protect yourself in the minimum amount of time and training. With this essential awareness and proper training you will be well on your way to living a safer, happier, and healthier life.
