Nearly 60,000* American children (mostly girls) are abducted by strangers each year. After seeing a security video
documenting a young girl's abduction, 15-year-old Dallas Jessup convinced her Filipino street fighting instructor to work with her on a school project and together they developed a method intended to teach young girls how to avoid Carla Brucia
's fate. The resulting 47 minute video, Just Yell Fire
, is viewable free of charge and teaches easy self defense moves created to help a potential victim avoid abduction or date rape. If there's a girl you love and want to protect from harm, the tips in this video
may just save her life someday.
Yes, the beginning with the infomercial-esque set-up may seem cheesy, but remember... it was made BY 15 YEAR OLDS (!) for 15 year olds. After about 13 minutes of discussion and advice, they proceed to enact and teach a full series of helpful self defense moves with dos and don'ts to avoid being abducted or attacked in a variety of situations. (It's a Hell of a lot more impressive than any of my school projects were, that's for sure.)
Warning: features enactments of teen girls being surprise attacked with good and bad results. Good results for the girl usually meaning bad results for the attacker's groin, ear, and/or eyes.
*That statistic was from the "Fire" link.
