PEOPLE HOW TO RESPOND TO

VIOLENCE AND WHAT TO DO IN A

"FIGHT OR FLIGHT" MOMENT. NEWS

THREE'S

JESSICA COOMBS FOUND OUT WHY THE

WORKSHOP'S SPONSERS SAY WE

"NEED TO TAKE ACTION."

NATS: "I WANT YOUR JEWELRY, NOW

COME ON GIVE IT TO ME." IT TAKES

BETWEEN SEVEN AND 11 MINUTES FOR

LAW ENFORCEMENT TO

RESPOND TO A CALL....BUT MANY

PEOPLE SAY THEY DON'T KNOW HOW

TO

REACT WHEN THEY ARE IN A LIFE-

THREATENING SCENARIO.

MICHAEL SAMPSON - C.O.B.R.A.

SAVANNAH OWNER AND INSTRUCTOR:

"SELF-DEFENSE IS FROM THE NECK

UP, MOST OF IT, SO YOU'VE GOT TO

MAKE SURE THAT YOU GO OUT AND

GET TRAINING THAT YOU NEED

WHETHER IT'S

FROM ME OR ANYONE THAT TEACHES

REAL LIFE SELF DEFENSE."

C.O.B.R.A SAVANNAH...4 THE JEWEL

N U GLOBAL...AND

SHARED HOPE ARE HOSTING HANDS-ON

WORKSHOPS TO TEACH PEOPLE HOW

TO ESCAPE DANGEROUS SITUATIONS.

KAREN ALSTON - 4 THE JEWEL N U

GLOBAL CEO AND FOUNDER "THERE'S

NO WAY THAT WE SHOULD BE SITTING

AROUND AND SAYING THAT SAVANNAH

AND GEORGIA IS AMONG THE TOP TEN

FOR VIOLENCE. THERE'S A

RISE IN HUMAN TRAFFICKING, HERE

IN OUR OWN CITY. WE SHOULD SAY,

'I

GOT TO GET UP.'"

JESSICA COOMBS -

@JESSICACOOMBS.T V: "THESE

CLASSES HELP PEOPLE KNOW HOW TO

DEAL WITH REAL LIFE

SCENARIOS. WE ARE GOING TO

DEMONSTRATE ONE OF THOSE RIGHT

NOW." "WHEN SOMEONE GRABS YOU,

AND...GRAB YOUR OWN SELF.

AND RUN AWAY."

TEEN VIOLENCE...BULLYING

...HUMAN TRAFFICKING...AND

OTHER ISSUES...ARE TOP

PRIORITIES FOR THE EVENT

SPONSORS...BUT

ALSTON SAYS THE COMMUNITY NEEDS

TO BE MORE PROACTIVE.

KAREN ALSTON - JEWEL N U CEO AND

FOUNDER: "VIOLENCE IS 365 DAYS

OUT OF THE YEAR AND IT HAPPENS

EVERY HOUR, EVERY MINUTE, AND

EVERY SECOND AND WHEN WE KEEP

OUR EYES

CLOSED AND OUR MOUTHS SHUT THEN

WE ARE NOT A PART OF THE

SOLUTION."

SAMPSON SAYS KNOWING HOW TO

RESPOND COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE.

MICHAEL SAMPSON - C.O.B.R.A.

SAVANNAH OWNER AND INSTRUCTOR:

"TODAY I'M HOPING THAT THEY CAN

TAKE ONE MOVE, THAT'S ALL JUST

ONE MOVE, CAUSE ALL IT TAKES IS

ONE MOVE TO ESCAPE." REPORTING
