Are you a woman is concerned about sexual violence or abduction?

WHY WOMEN MUST BE ABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES…

And How You Can Make Yourself Safer…

—————————————————–

Violence against women is a real problem.

In fact, 1 out of 6 women in America have been the victim of a completed rape or attempted rape in her lifetime.

This statistic doesn’t even take into account other forms of violent crime such as muggings or abduction.

Women have enough pressure in their lives with school, careers, and family.

The last thing you want to worry about is…what if someone attacked me?

Research suggests that women who effectively fight back against their attackers greatly reduce their chances of being raped or severely injured.

What if you could learn a few key principles and simple techniques that would give you that ability?

Imagine making the most out of your college years…or being able to focus on your career…or having the greatest time with your family…

All because you have the knowledge, skills, and confidence to protect yourself.

Hello, my name is Michael Tucker. I’m the owner and head instructor at A.C.T. Defense. I’ve been studying, training, and teaching martial arts and self defense for over 29 years. I’ve trained people from all walks of life from the U.S. Military to soccer moms.

My team at A.C.T. Defense and I have been contracted to teach safety and self defense courses for Alabama Power, the Birmingham YMCA, KlassKids Foundation, and Girls Inc. among many others.

—————————————————–

Here are a few things you’ll get out of this training:

LEARN TO TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS – Fear and uneasiness are some of the first intuitive signals that tell you something is wrong. Trusting these and other signals will often keep you out of danger. It may even save your life.

GAIN THE CONFIDENCE TO BE DECISIVE – Having accurate information allows you to make good decisions. There are certain indicators that reveal a bad guy’s intentions. When you know what those indicators are, you’ll be able to take the best course of action.

BE ABLE TO MAINTAIN PERSONAL FREEDOM – Keeping your power and comfort is the right of every woman. Knowing how to properly set, communicate, and enforce your own boundaries will ensure that no one does anything you don’t want them to.

STAY PHYSICALLY SAFE – Even when you apply all of the above, things can still go bad. Your goal is to avoid serious injury, rape, and/or death. We’ll give you simple techniques and drills that you can use to escape and get to safety…even against bigger, stronger, opponents.

PEOPLE THAT WILL HAVE YOUR BACK – I won’t lie to you. Even when all the preparation is in place and the skills are learned…you can still lose. Even if you successfully defend yourself, the experience can still be very traumatic. We’ll teach you how to find and grow a support system that will help you while you heal. A survivor’s job is to heal and recover.*

“Going through this training has made me feel so much better prepared to see danger coming way ahead of time. And because of the way we learned and practiced, I’m confident I would be able to keep myself safe in a real situation. I’m often in unfamiliar places by myself, so it’s been a game changer for sure.”

In the spirit of complete honesty…I can’t 100% guarantee that this training will prevent you from being attacked. No one can. But it can greatly reduce your chances.

P.S.
Remember…violence towards women is a serious issue. 1 in 6 American women are victims of sexual violence within their lifetime. And this doesn’t count other forms of violent crime.

If you’re ready to take control of your safety, learn to trust your instincts, improve your confidence, maintain your personal freedom, have people show you the respect you deserve, stay safe, and build a tribe of people who have your back…don’t miss this opportunity.

*IMPORTANT NOTE:

Because of the sensitive subject matter of this course (rape, abduction, stalking, domestic violence, etc.) a certain level of maturity is required of participants. We will address these subjects in a truthful manner not to frighten, but to prepare you for the reality of these kinds of attacks. THEREFORE, WOMEN AGES 13 AND UP MAY TRAIN. HOWEVER, AGES 13-18 MUST HAVE A LEGAL GUARDIAN’S SIGNED CONSENT PRIOR TO ENGAGING IN TRAINING. We will have consent forms available at the event.

Self defense training is not an alternative to professional therapy. Although this course can be very empowering, if you have been a victim of sexual assault we recommend that you first seek out a professional therapist to help you in the healing and recovery process. This training can possibly trigger memories of past trauma. You and your doctor must assess your own level of readiness and confidence towards this training.

Women will conduct drills with each other first. Then if you wish, you may try the drills with a male “bad guy” role player. All training and drills are entirely voluntary.

Although this is a serious subject, we conduct training with a fun and safe atmosphere. Your physical and psychological safety is our primary concern.
