Canada's Most Dangerous Cities: Sexual Assault

cornwallI have brought this up briefly in the past but thought worthy of mention again in a bit more detail.  Our business SAFE International has taught self defense to more than 200,000 people since 1994 and while that might sound like a large number, it is just a tiny, miniscule drop in the bucket compared to how many do not learn self defense or even feel they need it.  In previous blogs I have spoken about apathy and denial and how some people do not think or feel they need to learn self defense because they "live in a safe neighbourhood" with no crime, or they feel their loved ones or even dog will protect them if they do fall prey to violence.  Then those times they do find themselves in a violent encounter the go into denial w...
