I am the only certified instructor in the Scranton Pocono Northeast Region in the Women's Self-Defense and "Girl on Guard" (GOG) systems under Steve Kardian. This class is available to females only. These programs acknowledge that women have different strengths than men, and thus should use different techniques. Most women will not prevail if they try to match a criminal punch for punch in a stand-up fight. I teach the use of legs, hips, and most of all leverage to defeat a hostile attacker. In the video below, my assistants and I demonstrated some of these concepts for WNEP 16's Sharla McBride:
Female assistants are on hand for Girls on Guard classes* to help teach these techniques, and make the student feel more comfortable as she learns that what she once thought were vulnerable positions are really positions of great leverage and power.
The program starts by teaching the student how to escape the worst case scenario—the sexual assault position. This sends an important message. Even when it seems that the student is in the most vulnerable position, the tables can be turned immediately, and the attacker becomes the one in danger. There should never a point where a female feels defenseless—even in the worst case scenario.
From there, we develop the techniques needed to avoid that scenario. By the time the student has completed the course, she no longer has the victim mindset. She will see sexual assault or kidnapping attempts as problems that have solutions. She will respond to full power attacks with appropriate and effective techniques. She will gain a confidence and an awareness that many times will prevent the need for the use of her training. With continued training girls will learn to be on guard at all times, making them hard targets--the kind that makes criminals choose other targets altogether.*Unless otherwise noted.
