SELF-DEFENSE IS EFFECTIVE IN THWARTING SEXUAL ASSAULT!

August 27, 2016

 

"The data is clear! Numerous empirical studies have documented that women who have taken self-defense training are at less risk for sexual assault than those who have not, reducing risk of sexual assault by as much as 40%! Furthermore, self-defense training creates positive behavior, attitude change, and feelings of empowerment in women.

 

Women who learn to defend themselves learn to take themselves and their safety seriously in realistic ways, rather than simply following an unsubstantiated list of “don’ts” – don’t wear this, don’t go there, don’t be alone. Instead, they assess situations better than they did before their training, are more likely to identify situations that could be dangerous, and have the skills to respond if necessary."

(McCaughey & Cermele, 2015)
