Austin, TX (PressExposure) November 09, 2009 -- Robb Hamic will be teaching community self defense classes in Steiner Ranch at the Towne Park Community Center twice per month. Mr. Hamic is the Chief Instructor for Summit Self Defense. The focus of the class will be women's self defense although others may come. The classes are intended to address the growing concern about violence against women and girls. The classes are open to anyone on a first come first served RSVP basis (limit 30 people per class). The cost is only $50 per person and will cover at two hour class on awareness, detection of danger, scenarios, the most effective self defense that a woman (or anyone else) could use against an attack, imminent jeopardy and legal use of force considerations.
Classes may expand based on current interest and RSVP's. Summit Self Defense's http://www.summitselfdefense.com class is relevant, easy to fit into your schedule, inexpensive and sought after. Mr. Hamic travel across the country delivering this training and now it is available to Austin residents, locally. This is an open class intended for women but men and children over the age of 14 may attend.
Most 'self defense training only focuses on some form of defense, whether it is realistic or not. Robb Hamic believes that way of teaching can be harmful and leave you with no other option other than fighting. "Women and girls don't want to fight and they don't want to stand and fight toe to toe with an attacker," says Hamic. Robb Hamic says: "The main objective of a person, including myself, is to get away from the attacker as fast as possible." While the idea of punishing an attacker might be gratifying, it is impractical and gives people who train in these types of systems a false sense of security. A person who is attacked needs to know enough to keep themselves and their loved ones safe until they can get away (in most cases). "Self defense needs to be simple, effective and easy to remember because all fancy techniques disintegrate under stress," says Hamic.
Consider these facts:
A bad guy wants only three things: Property, your body or your life
In 2008- 6 out of 1000 people were the victim of aggravated assault in the US (an injury that could cause death or great bodily harm)
47% of all crime is unreported
It seems that the crime rates are rising nationally when we watch the news.
