It is normal for a senior in high school to start thinking about college and where they want to go, or what they want to do. As that day reaches, it is also normal for students to have many fears. All the “what ifs” that run through a students head about grades, friends, and campus life are normal, but should sexual assault be one of them? At Dragon Within, we take a stand against sexual assault on college. It has become a known fact that students found responsible for sexual assaults on campus, don’t have any consequences. This is not fare seeing as how the victim is often scarred for life. These victims tend to suffer from PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder). There have even been documented suicides from such behavior.

 

USA TODAY WASHINGTON says “More than 40% of U.S. colleges and universities have conducted no investigations of alleged sexual assaults over the last five years, according to an explosive survey of more than 300 schools by a congressional subcommittee.

Federal law requires colleges to follow up on reports of sexual assault, yet dozens of schools have failed to provide basic training on how to do that, the survey found. Nearly 73% do not have protocols for how campus authorities and local law enforcement should work together when cases arise. And some schools have no designated coordinator to handle such efforts even though federal law requires it.”

 

Why not prepare now for what may or may not happen in the future. Why let yourself become a statistic. Don’t end up letting anyone take advantage of you. Learn how to use a bigger aslant’ body weight against them. At dragon Within, we teach specific combinations of moves to help any person defend themselves in an altercation.

 

So why wait for something to happen. Don’t be that person walking home from a party or study session, that gets abducted. There had been too many cases of people getting hurt or taken. Be prepared, and be aware of your surroundings.

A.1__1340131411_4520So one of our students just shared this article that FOX7 News wrote. This is the kind of story that makes me sick. A woman in Jamaica Plain was going for a walk in broad daylight and was sexually assaulted and robbed at knife point! Fox7 reported “JAMAICA PLAIN, Mass. (WHDH) – People in Jamaica Plain are on alert after a daytime attack in the Arnold Arboretum Wednesday.” This is ridiculous. But my student here couldn’t have said it any better, “all women should learn Krav Maga“. And she couldn’t be more right.
Fox7 news also say that “Boston Police are increasing patrols after a woman said she was sexually assaulted and robbed at knife-point by a man on a bike around 11 a.m. Wednesday.” Great but there are only so many officers and so much ground to cover. So please all women and men and children, be safe no matter where you go. Prepare yourself for anything. Dragon Within is working diligently to make sure all our students are mentally and physically prepared for any attack at any time. We are teaching our students the importance of surroundings and being aware of them. We teach them to always find a way out. We also strive to teach the difference between attacks and knowing when to use them and how. We don’t want anyone being seriously injured just want our students to know how to defend themselves. It can be a scary world out there. Krav Maga self defense teaches the importance of self defense. At Dragon Within we have a unique way of teaching. We teach ways of getting out of situations such as knife locks and gun use. We can only hope that no one has to use them. But just as this story proves, it can happen to anyone, anywhere at any time. You just never know.

Police say the suspect is described as a black male in his 20s. Anyone who was in the park at the same time as the attack is asked to call the Boston Police Department at 1 (800) 494-TIPS.
