A.C.T. (A Course Teaching) F.A.S.T. (Female Assault Survival Tactics)Whether moving away to college, moving into your own place, or joining the working world, every young female should be ready, aware of and prepared for not only the great opportunities, but also the very real dangers that exist in our world. Personal tragedy in the form of a sexual assault of a former girlfriend, led martial artist and extreme fighting champion, Mark Streator, to an in-depth study of self-defense programs for women. Finding many of them inadequate and even leading to a false sense of security, Mark created the ACT FAST seminar. In this single session seminar, you learn: how to tap into powerful survival instincts that we all possess, tactics and techniques critical to personal safety, and situational awareness to help increase your ability to avoid or respond to a violent attack. True stories and personal experiences illustrated in the seminar are told to help you avoid deadly judgment mistakes. You also have an opportunity(optional) to test what you’ve learned in a “1-minute blitz.” This is a cooperative program held at Clarendon Hills Park District.
