Against Physical and Sexual Assault
This is a section I chose to add because of the statistics of the number of young women who are physically and sexually assaulted every year. The statistic is that 1 in 4 young women will be assaulted and 1 in 3 will face dating abuse. Self-defense is fully consistent with Biblical principles. Also, consider 1 Timothy 5:8
1 Timothy 5:8 “But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.”
As a brother in Christ, it is my desire to provide for my Christian "sisters", by showing you a tool for your safety against any who would try to take your virtue by force.
The program was created by a young woman who was a high school student at the time and studying Jiu Jitsu. She was motivated to do something after hearing the same statistics that 1 in 4 young women will be assaulted and 1 in 3 will face dating abuse. The very effective program she was motivated to create is called Just Yell Fire. It initially has each partidcipant become proficient with just 8 moves. Since the first program, she has developed a program for female students in the college environment. Check her website here and the links below:
As a 25 year veteran police officer, my brother recommends learning a few self-defense techniques till they are 2nd nature rather than trying to learn many techniques which you need to think to use. Any defense which is not second nature is completely useless if you are ever in a situation where you need to defend yourself. The only defenses that you will be able to use are the ones which you have trained to become automatic.
The 8 techniques shown in the first part of this program fit my brother’s recommendation. I recommend partnering with a family member or friend to practice the techniques shown until they become second nature for you. In doing so, hopefully you can reduce the possibility of becoming one of the statistics indicated above. If you have been the victim of assault, please talk to someone you trust. Hopefully the Just Yell Fire program will help keep this from happening again.
