Sexual Assault Statistics In Canada

ING 39524 03192As SAFE International™ Self Defense begins a new school year of teaching self defense to 1000s of teens, I thought it would be valuable to revisit the Sexual Assault Statistics in Canada.  These statistics come directly from the site SexualAssault.ca and mirror the statistics I have found in many studies.  While many will argue that statistics can never be 100% accurate, they can give us a general idea how serious and issue sexual assault always has, and always will be.   We at SAFE International™ have been teaching self defense for 23 years and an observation I have noticed is that many self defense instructors avoid discussing with our youth the fact that the vast majority of the time, the perpetrator of sexual assault wil...
