Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) June 26, 2014
Spodak Dental Group hosted a Ladies F.I.R.S.T. Self Defense class on Wednesday, June 18. More than 20 ladies of all levels of athleticism, strength, flexibility and body types learned how to use physics, gravity, leverage and technique to deter an attacker.
Kendrink Stephens, an expert in personal defense tactics and close quarter combat, is the founder and teacher of the Ladies F.I.R.S.T. Self Defense class. According to Mr. Stephens, many women’s self-defense programs teach unrealistic techniques that promote a false sense of security and cause more harm than good. This program is the first of its kind and employs effective, “reality based” tactics that will help the attendees protect themselves under the worst of circumstances.
One out of every five American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime. Furthermore, 80 percent of victims are younger than 30 years old.
“The statistics are staggering,” said Dr. Craig Spodak, owner of Spodak Dental Group, “and I’m glad to be able to provide this free class to the women in our community. If I can help save someone’s life, it is well worth it.”
The Ladies F.I.R.S.T. Self Defense Training Program is being taught nationwide to individual women, groups, corporations, female school teachers, moms’ clubs, women’s sports teams, shelters for victims of assault and more.
Mr. Stephens has 20 years of police experience, including 16 years as a S.W.A.T. Team Member, and has participated in more than 2,000 high-risk missions where he has fought for his life on many occasions. He has 35 years of martial arts experience and black belts in four martial arts disciplines. Mr. Stephens has successfully utilized every level of force on the street, learning “first hand” just how effective reality-based combat training is when used against someone who is not as knowledgeable.
