In the summer of 2010 there were a slew of sexual assaults on women in Utah which prompted OPSGEAR® CEO David Burnell to offer free self defense seminars across the state. There was a huge outcry from ladies nationwide who couldn't attend, asking them to put the seminar on DVD, so they did. Brandy Vega, Vice President of Media and Communications for OPSGEAR survived a sexual assault as a teen and shares her story and personal experiences which include the story of Mandy Lund, her cousin who was brutally murdered during an attack.
According to Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network or RAINN every 2 minutes in the United States someone is sexually assaulted, 1 in 6 women will be the victim of a sexual assault, 60% of sexual assaults are not reported to the police, 15 of 16 rapists will never spend a day in jail and approximately 2/3 of assaults are committed by someone known to the victim!
When all is said and done would you call yourself a survivor? OPSGEAR® wants you to confidently answer YES. This seminar uses vivid first hand accounts to explain how the brain functions in dangerous situations, the various levels of mental awareness and the facets of a survival mindset. Watch as these highly trained professionals demonstrate basic and simple techniques for avoiding peril, breaking contact and staying alive.
