R.A.V.E.S. is different because it acknowledges that most martial arts are outdated and male dominated, and does not protect the people in society who need it the most: women, teens, children, the disabled and disadvantaged in our society. R.A.V.E.S defence measures are supported by real life accounts of women and girls who have been attacked - busting myths about sexual assault and how to defend against it.
Erin Cash, R.A.V.E.S. founder, draws on 12 years law enforcement experience in areas such as sex crimes and public safety, combined with over 24 years mixed martial arts experience. Erin says, "Hollywood has brainwashed us to believe that attacks will happen a certain way. But the truth is that you are more likely to fight for your life against someone that you know or love; predatory attacks are more likely to occur early in the morning during the 'witching hour'; and sometimes strategies like whispering in your attackers ear could save your life."
