Xavier Students Against Sexual Assault (XSASA) and the Criminal Justice Society (CJS) have teamed up to bring Debbie Gardner, founder of Survive Institute to Xavier University.
On Wednesday, Oct. 24, Gardner will lead a free seminar
on self-defense in Kelley Auditorium at 6 p.m. Gardner worked as Deputy Sheriff for the Hamilton County Sheriff 's Department for eight years and is certified by a number of international and national selfdefense programs. She has also
written several books. According to her website, surviveinstitute. com, Gardner, along with her husband Mike, hope to
teach people how to use selfdefense effectively and simply,
without experiencing physical, emotional and financial turmoil. They believe "less is more... when more is right."
Gardner wants those who attend the program to feel safer
when it comes to crime. She not only uses humor to keep those in attendance entertained, but her website states that learning selfdefense in a more fun way will enable one to retain the information, especially in a high stress situation. One can apply simple knowledge when necessary. XSASA and CJS want students to feel safer while on and off campus, and they believe Gardner can do just that. The presentation is open to anyone who wants simple self-defense knowledge.
