The Basic self-defense course addresses the dynamics of how women are assaulted and how to deal with single unarmed assailants. Model Mugging provides a comprehensive rape prevention program that also addresses issues related to intimate partner abuse and dating violence.




Day One covers the five principles of women’s self-defense to include awareness strategies taking into account the behavioral patterns of criminals, dynamics of sex crimes, situational recognition, personal behavioral assessment, methods to identify vulnerability, countermeasures available, and more. The achieved goal is student psychological preparation to reduce inhibitions that improve the fighting spirit. The foundation of physical skills is established in preparation for locking the skills into muscle memory.

Day Two covers defense against a single unarmed assailant from positions derived from research. We apply the knowledge of predator typologies into fighting strategies and tactics to include vocalization, assertiveness, boundary setting, verbal negotiation, identification of predator weaknesses and how to use weaknesses and strengths for option selection and application, self-evaluation, realistic physical skill development during realistic full-force rape defense scenarios. Only when touching all the senses will education and training result in lasting attitude changes. Empowerment is achieved in a variety of aspects by the end of the day. The progressive teaching strategies naturally develop effective free flow fighting skills and foster the fighting spirit for rape defense and crime prevention.
