This is an all-new-class at Lloyd Irvin’s Mixed Martial Arts Headquarters – geared toward teaching women the fundamental and necessary techniques to prevent any violence toward women.
Violence against women is still at an all time high. Here is an excerpt from an article on the subject:
The National Crime Victimization Survey, based on projections from a national sample survey, says that at least 248,300 individuals were raped or sexually assaulted in 2007, up from 190,600 in 2005, the last year the survey was conducted. The study surveyed 73,600 individuals in 41,500 households. Among all violent crimes, domestic violence, rape, and sexual assault showed the largest increases. Except for simple assault, which increased by 3 percent, the incidence of every other crime surveyed decreased.
“The numbers in this survey show an alarmingly high rate of sexual violence in this country,” said Sarah Tofte, researcher for the US Program at Human Rights Watch. “This should serve as a wake-up call that more must be done to address the problem in the US.”
The projected number of violent crimes committed by intimate partners against women increased from 389,100 in 2005 to 554,260 in the 2007 report.
This is one of the main reasons this class was created, I am on an unstoppable mission to help as many women as possible. Violence against women of any kind must be stopped, and I want to arm you with the skills, techniques, and confidence to be able to defend yourself if, God forbid, you ever need to.
