Self-Defense Seminar at WV State College

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Butch Hiles will be teaching a self-defense seminar to all the students of WV State University on October 9, 2012.  October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and this is a perfect opportunity to reach a broad audience and help to stop the cycle of violence.

The seminar will take place outside Dawson Hall at WV State University from 1-3pm.  All students and friends of students are encouraged to attend.

The ramifications of domestic violence are staggering. Young women are
among the most vulnerable, suffering the highest rates of intimate
partner violence. Exposure to domestic violence puts our young men and
women in danger of long-term physical, psychological, and emotional
harm. Children who experience domestic violence are at a higher risk
for failure in school, emotional disorders, and substance abuse, and
are more likely to perpetuate the cycle of violence themselves later
in life.

We hope to see everyone there!

More About Spencer Fisher

He made his UFC debut at Ultimate Fight Night 2, scoring a second-round submission victory over Thiago Alves. He then defeated Aaron Riley at Ultimate Fight Night 3 by TKO due to a Doctor Stoppage after the first round after Fisher broke Riley’s Jaw with strikes. Perhaps Fisher’s most notable early fight was with Canadian kickboxer Sam Stout on the undercard of UFC 58. When Stout’s original opponent Kenny Florian sustained an injury in training that left him unable to compete, Fisher took the fight on very late notice, reportedly having to cut twenty pounds in the final two days leading up to the match. Although Fisher seemed to land the harder punches, Stout landed more and came away with a controversial split decision.

Fisher returned at UFC 60 against Matt Wiman and won by knockout in the second round, knocking Wiman out with a flying knee. Fisher was able to record another first round TKO at UFC 64 against Dan Lauzon. His win streak came to a halt at Ultimate Fight Night 8, after a back and forth fight Fisher was defeated in the second round by TKO due to punches by Hermes Franca.

In a highly anticipated rematch, Fisher defeated Sam Stout at Fight Night 10 by unanimous decision after three rounds. This rematch with Stout propelled Fisher into the spotlight, as it was the main event, it won Fight of the Night and because both fighters took massive amounts of punishment throughout the fight. It has also been named as one of the UFC’s 100 Greatest Fights. Fisher was scheduled to fight Din Thomas at UFC Fight Night 11, but was forced to withdraw due to a staph infection. Ironically, Fisher’s replacement for this match was Kenny Florian, whom Fisher had replaced in the UFC 58 fight against Sam Stout.

Fisher fought Frank Edgar at UFC 78 on November 17, 2007. Fisher lost the fight by unanimous decision. Fisher’s next fight was scheduled to be against Marcus Aurélio at UFC Fight Night 13, but he was forced to withdraw due to a shoulder injury. With his shoulder healed, Fisher was next scheduled to fight young up and comer Jeremy Stephens at The Ultimate Fighter: Team Rampage vs. Team Forrest Finale on June 21, 2008. Fisher dominated Stephens and won by unanimous decision.

Fisher defeated Shannon Gugerty at UFC 90 in Chicago on October 25, 2008. Fisher won his fight at UFC 99 via unanimous decision defeating veteran Caol Uno.

Women learn self defense for a good cause

Women learn self defense for a good cause

  WATCH THE VIDEO: Women learn self defense for a good cause

 

At his gym in Charleston, Butch Hiles is offering classes to the general public. In those classes, people can learn how to protect themselves.

Hiles says more than 10,000 women are raped in Kanawha County every year. To combat that, he says they just need to know a little self-defense.

Women in the Kanawha Valley took control. They don’t want to face an attacker and be unprepared.

A college student, Krista Moore said, “I think it would good to learn how to protect myself if anything were to happen.”

And her friend agrees. They say being aware is key.

“If anything does happen like that, you could save yourself from a very scaring situation,” said Lindsay Tincher.

All of the proceeds from this event go straight to REACH. That stands for Rape Education, Advocacy, Counseling, and Healing.

The group is there for women who need a helping hand through what, they call, a very complicated and difficult time.

“We don’t like to say that these programs help prevent, but they do help reduce the risk. And so, just learning how to come out and reduce the risk of a sexual assault or any other attack is definitely important,” said Jaqueline Bevan, of REACH.

To contact an advocate with REACH- call 304-340-3676
