Rapid Fitness, Downtown Raleigh, NC Hosting Violence Prevention Training for Females…

Anny Jacoby and The Realistic Female Self-Defense Company Hosted By Rapid Fitness on June 12

May, 2010….Each day the news reports yet another attack or assault on a female, or worse a murder.  Females, by nature, are considered the “weaker” sex, with less strength and bulk than males.  This unlevel playing field makes females more susceptible to attack by males, and, in some instances, other females.

Anny Jacoby has the system that will help level that playing field, and she and her staff teach females how to protect and defend themselves, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and, if necessary, physically in the event of an attack.

Jacoby is the President and Founder of The Realistic Female Self-Defense Company and Project Safe Girls.  She has devised specific programs for all age groups and all physical levels to help teach them to detect dangerous situations and how to defend themselves should an attack arise.

Jacoby says, “Education and awareness are the keys to bringing attention to the issue of female assault.  A female has every right to protect herself if found in a situation where she is being attacked, whether by a stranger or intimate partner.”

Anny Jacoby is a certified personal self-defense instructor, earning her certification from Blauer Tactical, which is known for their trainings with law enforcement and military organizations.  The S.P.E.A.R. System taught by Blauer Tactical is successful at teaching exclusive maneuvers which help ward off or take down an attacker.  In the case of females, it gives her an advantage and an opportunity to get away from the attacker.

Realizing the “red flags” and developing your intuition is also an area which Jacoby teaches during the awareness presentation segment of her training classes.  She speaks about empowerment, self confidence and using your intuition to decide how to react to an attack.   She also describes the different types of attacks as well as types of violence a female may encounter.

Recognizing the importance of giving females all the advantages afforded to them, Rapid Fitness invited Anny and her staff to conduct a training event in their downtown Raleigh location on Saturday, June 12.  The event is not just for Rapid Fitness members, but is open to the public.  Any female who wishes to learn how to protect and defend herself is welcome to attend.

    I would ask if they are concerned about the safety of woman, then why did they hire a convicted convict that has assaulted woman in the past. Michael Garcia has assaults and other convictions on his record, yet he is allowed to work here. I would avoid this place.

    Why Michael Garcia is allowed to work here? I still don`t get it
