    Operation Self-Defense with~ Deva Hoffman

    in Women

    Self-defense can be a crucial part of strategies to prevent rape. Yet most self-defense courses taught on college campuses don't prepare students for the violence they are most likely to face -- sexual assaults perpetrated by people they know. Please tune in and support our guest, Deva Hoffman. Ms. Hoffman has more than 15 years of self-defense training, Deva Hoffman has a passion for helping women learn how to defend themselves. Deva learned firsthand the importance of self-defense after almost becoming the victim of a random violent crime in 1988 when a man attempted to pull her into his car in a grocery store parking lot. Since then, Deva has been on a mission to help women avoid becoming victims of crime and abuse.  

    National Statistics about Sexual Assault provided by the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center

    1 out of every 6 American adult women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime (14.8% completed rape; 2.8% attempted rape).1
    About 3% of American adult men — or 1 in 33 — have experienced an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime.1
    15% of sexual assault and rape victims are under age 12.2
    73% of sexual assaults were perpetrated by a non-stranger. 2
    1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused before their 18th birthday.
    93% of juvenile sexual assault victims know their attacker.3

    34.2% of attackers were family members.
    58.7% were acquaintances.
    Only 7% of the perpetrators were strangers to the victim.
    Nearly 50% of all victims of forcible sodomy, sexual assault with an object, and forcible fondling are children under 12.

    Black Thoughts and Theory: The Radio Show- Melanated Self-Defense

    in Culture

    Melanated Self-Defense

    Some of you believe that we cannot defeat those who would subdue or slaughter us. Well, I do not share such cowardly and ridiculous thoughts. Sure we have to be smart because they are formidable, but if I may paraphrase Garvey, the power that holds African Americans is not divine ... it is flesh and blood. 

    Join Alex Primo, Asha Zuri, and Zhe Levels Scott Thursday October 1 at 9 PM EST as we discuss not only what is possible in regards to Melanated Self-Defense, but we will explore and examine what our great forerunners did in the past to protect one another. We will look at a Black Doctor who knew he had to take up arms to protect his family and people. We will look at a brother who believed in shoot first and shoot last. We will also look at Indigenous Americans fighting the Klan and more. 

    And of course the good brother Dennis Jefferson will be bringing us another fantastic episode of Healthy Matters.

    This is going to be a HOT one so get ready to tune-in.

    You can call-in at (917)889-2830 to speak with your Hosts


    You can log on here to listen LIVE.

    And Remember Always Keep It On-Point and Keep It Real.

    Self Defense Training, The Realities

    in Education

    Self Defense and Reality
    on American Preppers Radio!
    9:00pm/Est 8:00pm/Ct 7:00pm/Mt 6:00pm/Pt
    Live Listen and Chat go to:
    Prepper Broadcsting Listen & Chat

    We all hope for the best and prepare for the worst. When it comes to self defense most preppers/survivalists would rely on their stockpile of weapons and ammunition. What if for one moment your weapon was not at your side and the unexpected happens? Would you have the ability to defend yourself? Would you know what to say or do when confronted by would-be assailants or would you cower down hoping for the best but not prepared the the worst that could now happen?

    This is a good time to also remember that your child or children may be with you. Who is going to protect them when accosted by a stranger or strangers? These are all possibilities we do not care to think about but exist and are very real. It does not have to be a societal collapse or disaster that brings on this type of scenario. This can happen today in the parking lot of your local grocery store or even in your own front yard.

    Learn what you need to know and as much as you can. Self defense, It’s not just about the fighting.
