It's NEVER the Victim's Fault

May 12, 2017

Free Women's Self Defense Seminar: July 23

In recognition of sexual assault awareness month, we wanted to address the damaging impact of "victim blaming" and the misconceptions regarding women's self-defense. Many people wrongly believe that a survivor of sexual assault may be to blame based on what they were wearing, drinking or doing prior to the assault. It's not true, and the insinuation is much more damaging than many realize. It's never the victim's fault. It is a man's responsibility to respect women and their boundaries. But until this day comes, we encourage women to learn self defense; not because it's their responsibility, but because it's their reality.



FREE WOMEN'S SELF-DEFENSE SEMINAR: SUNDAY, JULY 23rd.
To help expose women to the benefits of learning self-defense, we are hosting a free Women Empowered seminar at the Gracie Academy in Torrance and at select Certified Training Centers around the world. Due to the video's insane exposure (over 1.8 million views!) the first seminar in Torrance (July 15th) reached capacity in two days! To make sure we get everyone in, we added a second free seminar the following weekend, Sunday, July 23rd from 11am to 1pm. Although the seminar is free and is specifically designed for first-time students with no experience, you must pre-register to save your spot since they almost always reach max capacity.

Date: Saturday, July 23, from 11:00am to 1:00pm
