I'm considering taking this seminar. Have any of you heard about this or have any experience with it?

www.rapeescape.com

I'm also taking the IMPACT core program in February. It'll be interesting to see if the last two months of Krav will affect my performance in these courses.

Have not seen either of those. I have yet to attend a seminar or program that I did not walk away with something I could use later.

Wow...looks very, uh, sensationalist...

I wonder how much money they're raking in for making people/women paranoid...

Hm...I didn't get that impression. I'll have to meander around the whole site when I have more time.

I just dig the idea of taking different courses. Like Ranger mentioned, there's always something to learn.

I sorta think taking Krav eliminates the need to take any other anti-rape training...after all, that's part of what you are learning anyway. I doubt you would see anything new. Many of these systems use a small weapon like a "Rape Kitty"..try getting that outa your purse while under attack. If you want to take some additional training, attend some BJJ or "Dirty Fighting" seminars. That is where your money is well spent.

The fearmongering begins: "When a man attacks a man, he either wants his money or his life. When a man attacks a woman, he either wants her money, her life OR HER BODY. The nature of the conflict is, by definition, hugely different." (from http://www.rapeescape.com/philosophy.htm)

You should take a look at this: http://www.nononsenseselfdefense.com/rape.html

I don't believe that there's a separate self-defense for women and self-defense for men, and this is what your rape seminar implies.

Most rapes are committed by someone the victim knows (up to 80-90 percent of all rapes), your best defense against rape is being careful about who you associate with (though you can't choose your family I'm afraid). Otherwise, the methods to avoid any kind of attack (robbery, stranger rape, etc) in the first place are the same, whether you're a man or woman.

Krav does deal with every attack you could think of, but a rape seminar is going to be very specific on things. It is designed for woman and will have valuable information. Since you have taken Krav, the seminar might not be as informative, but I'm sure you will get something out of it. Every little bit helps, let me know what you learn and how it goes. I have taught a few "Woman's self defense seminars" in the past and I'm curious.

Have you even read that rapeescape site? Here's a bit of the crap that comes from it:

"Some call it paranoia, but the fear of sexual assault isnít unfounded. The most underreported crime in America, it is estimated that 12.1 million American women have been the victim of "forcible rape" and that 1 out of 8 will be assaulted in her lifetime. An age-old crime, rape often encompasses sexual or psychological torture; a womanís terror and pain becomes little more than fodder for a predatorís amusement." (http://www.rapeescape.com/fightwfear.htm)

What it DOESN'T say is that the rape will in at least 8 out of 10 cases be committed by SOMEONE THE VICTIM KNOWS AND (PROBABLY) TRUSTS. How do you fight against that?

MY GF has attended both the Rape defense system that uses the "Rape Kitty" and the one day seminar that Dedicated1 teaches. She found our Krav based defense seminar much more practical.
