Be Armed With Technique 

At Scranton MMA we know that women’s self-defense is not just a set of techniques; it’s a state of mind, and it begins with the knowledge that you are worth defending. You have the power within you to defeat a sexual predator, and Untouchable! will bring it out of you. Regardless of your age or physical condition, you can defend yourself, and Untouchable! will give you the tools and the confidence to make it happen.

Be Armed With Knowledge

Sexual violence wears many different faces. Regardless of the form it takes you must remember one thing above all else; you are never responsible for the atrocity. No matter what you do, what you say, what you wear, you are not “asking for it”. You are not at fault! To better understand the wide range of predatory violences we have included here a list of different classifications of rape and sexual violence, as well as other kinds of violence often associated with sexual violence.

  •  Stranger Rape
  •  Acquaintance Rape
  •  Sexual Violence
  •  Child Abuse / Child Sexual Abuse
  •  Dating & Domestic Violence
  •  Drug Facilitated Sexual Violence
  •  Hate Crimes
  •  Incest
  •  Partner Rape
  •  Sexual Harassment
  •  Stalking

The Realities Of Sexual Crimes

  •  Every 2 minutes in the U.S a sexual assault occurs
  •  1 in 6 women in the U.S. will be the target of a sexual assault at some point in her life
  •  44% of victims are under age 18; 80% of victims are under the age of 30
  •  Approximately 2/3 of assaults are committed by someone known to the victim
