Lee County, which includes Fort Myers and Cape Coral, is ranked as one of the fastest growing counties in the U.S. and expectations are that it will continue grow at a rapid rate. Sexual assault in Lee County, Fl has followed growth in population trends in Southwest Fl. Reported cases of forced rape decreased from 419 in 2005 to a low of 219 in 2011. As Southwest Florida's population has rebounded the number of sexual assaults has grown too. From the low in 2011 to 2017 sexual assaults have increased by 54%. Our self defense classes and seminars give you the tools to avoid becoming part of these statistics.
During times of rapid growth, the influx of new residents and transient workers increases the occurrence of sexual assaults. Women in careers that rely on contact with the public, especially with potential new and recently arrived residents, face an increased risk of being sexually assaulted. Cape Coral and Fort Myers Realtors, Apartment and Property managers, Hotel and Resort workers, Amusement Park and Entertainment employees, Retail Store Associates, Mobile Services done at customer's home; all face an even greater risk of encountering a man who might do them harm. Your career may put you in contact with bad people, but having taken our seminar you'll be able to identify them and show them you are not what they seek.
Men who prey on women are practiced at appearing safe and normal on the surface, but no matter how adept they are at presenting a safe veneer, they all have tell tale signs that give them away. Knowing the signals and learning how to "trust your gut" can prevent a woman from entering a situation that puts her at risk. Knowing how to signal to the predator that she is not easy prey can prevent an aggressor from attempting to attack. If she cannot prevent being in the situation and her strong self confidence and verbal warnings do not deter the assailant, she has to be ready and able to escape or debilitate the aggressor.
