DELRAY BEACH, Fla., May 16, 2018 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The Spodak Dental Group sponsored a LADIES F.I.R.S.T.™ Self Defense class this past Friday, May 11 as part of Family Wellness Month. The class was led by Sgt. Ken Stephens (ret.), a 20-year veteran police officer with 16 years of S.W.A.T. experience. The roughly three-hour course was completely underwritten by Dr. Craig Spodak as a way to help community members learn tips to protect themselves if ever faced with an attacker.

“In light of the recent happenings in the news about horrific acts taking place in schools and community buildings, we, as business owners, need to take all the steps we can to protect our community members,” said Dr. Craig Spodak, owner of Spodak Dental Group. “If I can help to save one person’s life, it’s all worth it.”

All female community members, regardless of age, athleticism, strength, flexibility and body types, were invited to participate, and roughly 30 people were in attendance. Attendees learned how to use gravity, leverage and technique to deter an attacker.

“If a technique won’t work against a motivated attacker, I won’t teach it. It’s that simple,” says Ken Stephens, Founder of Ladies F.I.R.S.T.™ Self Defense.

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one in five women is raped during her lifetime, and one in three women have been victims of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime. On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men.
