According to "CARe", four out of five victims are able to get away from their attacker by fighting back. The program recommended self-defense training as a method of lessoning the risk of rape.
Former Marine, Sensei Zech Browning, Gyodokan Kaizen Kempo-Jutsu at "House of the True Way Martial Arts" in Brazil, volunteered his expertise on self-defense training. Zech and five of his students/assistants,--Doug Wire, Terry White, Brandon Garvin, Cameron Provines and Coan Williams--demonstrated martial art self-defense moves. Their interactive demonstrations allowed students in all of the Interpersonal Relationships classes the opportunity to learn and practice self-defense moves.
Each semester Browning and his assistants generously contribute to the health and well-being of NHS students. During Browning's presentation students learned a wide variety of methods to fight off an attacker. Students practiced getting free from a perpetrator in an arm hold, a choke and an unexpected attack from the side or back. Browning answered students' questions and set up scenarios for students to practice. He strongly encouraged students to stay sober so they could think clearly if an attack happened. All students were allowed to participate.
Interpersonal Relationships is one of the ten Family and Consumer Science (FACS) courses taught at Northview. The course is taught by Joanna Connors.
