SHARP-Sexual Harassment and Rape Prevention Event for Women

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG)  |  By Rick Reed

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - With “MeToo” awareness bringing to light stories of sexual harassment and rape across communities and through generations women are becoming empowered to just say NO!

When people possess the skills of martial arts they have learned how to protect themselves from personal assault and gained the confidence to say NO and make it stick. Robinson’s Taekwondo has been teaching women safety, conflict avoidance and empowering students since 1975 with TKD techniques and self-defense skills.

Unfortunately, in Grandmaster Clint Robinson’s experience, the women seeking training in martial arts often come to the values and skills after the fact.

To empower women with knowledge, skills and confidence Robinson’s TKD is offering a 3.5 hour  Sexual Harassment and Rape Prevention/SHARP Seminar specifically designed for women to increase awareness and develop practical physical techniques and strategies to counter social and sexual assault.

With women standing together to say no to harassment and sexual assault now, the skills of martial arts are one of the most important tools in reducing future “MeToo” calls for help.

RTKD S.H.A.R.P. Clinic is for women only and takes place Saturday, June 23 from

1pm-4:30pm. Registration online is required to reserve space at www.robinsonstkd.com under the Events tab.

Please join the Black Belt instructors of Robinson’s Taekwondo for a special women’s empowerment event to learn prevention psychology, predator habits, physical techniques to escape and countermeasures for sexual assault. These easy to learn, practical techniques utilize vocal and physical measures to disengage unwanted sexual attention, avert social physical advances and injure sexual predators. Striking techniques utilizing hands, legs and feet are practiced with methods of escape and evasion to seek help in this 3.5 hour event.
