Instructors have martial arts experience in a variety of styles and disciplines. Some are law enforcement officers, military back ground, counseling, and other specialties. They have studied criminal typologies and have experience attending to survivors of assaults as first and secondary responders.
Male Instructors are trained to wear the body armor safely. They learn the dynamics in which predators operate so they can best help their students during the full contact scenarios. They wear about 50 pounds of protective equipment that is extremely hot and fatiguing so their students can avoid future victimization. They define the warrior spirit in their acts of giving and individual sacrifice.
Female Instructors are crucial to the Model Mugging Training. They are the Role Models for their students to emulate. They never leave their students side and coach each one to personal victory. They are familiar with the equipment and completely understand what their students are going through. After all they were students themselves but have graduated from multiple classes and advance Model Mugging courses. They have exceptional technique and strategy during full contact fighting. They have training in rape crisis advocacy and the myriad of emotions the course raises. Most of all they lead you to the greatest feelings of empowerment any course can offer.
