IKMF Philippines & Absolute Pure Distilled Drinking Water brings you a Women Empowerment & Self-Defense Seminar
Women now have more freedom to choose the career, lifestyle and adventures that may possibly bring them more fulfillment in life. With all of the options and resources available for them to pursue their careers and passions, the possibility of staying out late or going to distant places can be too inviting to resist. However, this also increases their exposure to risks of being assaulted.
According to the Philippine Commission on Women, cases of rape or attempted rape, acts of lasciviousness, and physical injuries on women reported to the Philippine National Police have been on the rise since 2004 to 2013. Moreover, according to the 2008 National Demographic and Health Survey conducted by the National Statistics Office, one in five Filipino women age 15-49 has experienced physical violence since age 15.
To teach women how to protect themselves from such risks and in celebration of Women’s Month this March, Absolute Pure Distilled Drinking Water and the International Krav Maga Federation (IKMF) Philippines will be holding an open seminar entitled “Fight Like a Girl” on March 14, 2015, Saturday, at the Amoranto Stadium in Diliman, Quezon City.
Originally developed for the military and law enforcement units, Krav Maga has been adapted teach women self-defense systems for all types of threats and attacks. The event will be for the benefit of the Touch a Heart Foundation, an NGO supported by Absolute mom Judy Ann Santos–Agoncillo, who herself is an active member and student of IKMF Philippines.
Says Abe Cipriano, AVP for Marketing, ABI Non-Alcoholic Brands, “Absolute has always been a firm believer in women’s strength; we would like to empower women through building their physical and emotional confidence in their capacity to protect themselves. Aided with an arsenal of self-defense moves and techniques, Absolute supermoms will be able to provide the highest quality of protection, care, and love for their families.”
