WOFT is a world class education center for real life scenario, safety and instruction. Scenario Safety teaches everyone the skills necessary to handle real-life encounters. Ultimately, WOFT empowers you to deal with the potentially harmful, everyday situations that can happen.
ISSUE — There is epic, passionate debate regarding the issue of violence that exists in our lives today. It's a hard truth; a hard reality that we all want to ignore. However, no matter who you are, no matter where you live, this harsh fact is in and around all of us. It is continually in the day-to-day lives of everyone.
REALITY — Generally, it's not a problem. Most of the time, it's all quite civilized. We are here to talk about the moments when it's not. What happens when a stranger approaches you? What happens when someone starts to follow you? What happens when someone becomes aggressive?
STATISTICS — Sadly, women bear the brunt of this painful reality. According to Victim Statistics on RAINN, about 80% of juvenile victims were female. In addition, women from ages 18 to 34 are at the highest levels of risk to experience sexual assault. Altogether there were a total of 1,313,105 violent crimes in the US in 2020, an increase of 5% or 62,712 violent crimes from 2019. Violent crime statistics include aggravated assault, robbery, rape, and homicide.
SOLUTION — This is why WOFT has developed into what we are today. Not to debate; not to argue, but simply empower everyday people, in their everyday lives to deal with these very difficult situations should they occur. WOFT has absolutely no agenda beyond the goal of helping everyone; enabling all people to deal with any situation should it arise. If we can help even one person, if we can spare even a single woman from the trauma and pain that comes from violent assault; we believe it's worth every bit of our effort.
