[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I was horrified last night to be sat at home with my wife and kids, scrolling through the news (as you do), when I came across this article:
146 reported child rape cases is 146 too many!
And this is just the reported ones…
I know about the effects of child abuse first hand.
I met my wife, Lynne back in 1995 at university and even though we started off at friends, I knew after 3 months we were destined to be together.
When our relationship became intimate, I knew something was wrong.
Lynne had been raped when she was just 13 by the caretaker at her school!
People don’t like to talk about it. They will talk about a serious assault, a sexual attack, but let’s not gloss over this…
Now when I said I met Lynne at uni, this is because she signed up to my self-defence club.
Even today, I work closely with local charities to help teach women who have gone through a similar experience to become more confidence in dealing with confrontation.
I strongly believe that no young woman (or man) for that matter should ever have to experience rape.
Not only are the physical effects traumatic, but the mental scarring can last a lifetime.
Lynne through Jiu-Jitsu, meditation and by being an exceptionally strong woman no longer lets her child rape effect her.
In fact, Lynne has written an eBook, Fighting Back to help all women learn the basics of self-defence. You can check this out by clicking here:
I have a 15 month old daughter, who in a few years time will be learning Jiu-Jitsu so I can give her a fighting chance.
I hope that your family never have to experience what Lynne went through.
So remember, stay safe and if Lynne and I can help you in any way, just get in touch.
