Irvine, CA, December 17, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- On November 20th, Krav Maga OC (KMOC) held this year’s Women’s Self-Defense Seminar free of charge in response to the October 12th sexual assault on a Fullerton College student, the second attack this year. The seminar was offered free to female students of Fullerton College and to all women of Orange County as an opportunity to learn verbal defense, situational awareness, basic self-defense techniques such as kicks and punches, and how to defend against various attacks. More than 30 high school and college students, working professionals, stay-at-home moms and retirees attended the event.
Fullerton College student, Jessica Baxter, was key in organizing the event. “After the second attack at our school I decided it was time to talk to Yuri at Krav Maga OC and set up another Women's Seminar. I knew even if only one person showed up, that's one person who now has the power and confidence to save her own life.” Jessica has been a KMOC student for 12 months, and due to Krav Maga’s emphasis on natural movements and reality based training, she is confident Krav Maga OC has prepared her to both avoid dangerous situations and defend herself if needed. “In my line of work, I am often one of the last to go home at night. It doesn't bother me because I know I can protect myself, but I worry about all of the girls I know that end up walking to their cars alone,” she said. “I was amazed when I got to the seminar and so many people showed up. It was great to see them learning these skills, by the end everyone felt happy and were confident that, if they ever needed to, they could defend themselves.”
Krav Maga OC donated all proceeds from last year’s Women’s Self Defense Seminar to the Susan G. Komen “3-Day” walk and this year donated time and instruction to the students of Fullerton College and the women of Orange County.
