Eastern Connecticut State University: Combo Event with Full Contact Self-Defense Workshop!

What do you get when you combine a 3hr IMPACT intro workshop chock full of adrenaline based full contact self-defense, with a full SFB seminar on how all people can come together to end violence in all it’s forms? You get a kick ass event like the one Eastern Connecticut State University hosted on their campus! I was so excited to be part of this day that combined IMPACT self-defense with Students Fight Back to give the students here a complete solution for how to be their own best protectors.


The morning kicked off with the IMPACT workshop. We talked about how adrenaline based training becomes muscle memory in your body so that in a real situation (which we hope no one EVER has to face) you won’t have to think about how to respond…your body will just do it! We also discussed the importance of the freeze response, which is one of the three normal reactions to trauma (fight/flight/freeze). Our goal isn’t to get rid of the freeze response but to reduce it. All of the participants did a fantastic job and went full out in their fights with our padded assailant. You realize just how powerful you are when you are given permission to let go of social inhibitions to be “nice” and understand that you are worth fighting for.


The evening event was the Students Fight Back seminar, which brought in more empowerment info but without the physical ass kicking!   We talked about how to be an active bystander and the importance of using your awareness and intuition as tools to keep yourself safe. The audience was really into the presentation and we had many laughs throughout…including why we don’t want to pinch a predator in the armpit! Why not? Well, if you’re being attacked you want to go for one of the hotspots that will cause pain and disability so that you can get away and the armpit ain’t gonna do that!


Thank you so much to the sponsors and hosts for bringing us out to your campus for such an empowering event for your students! You are all powerful!

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    Good whatever time of day it is where you areHello!

    Sending newsletters of Your offers via forms into the “Contact us” section to the sites of business organizations via all countries of the world in any languages.

    website =» xn—-7sbb1bbndheurc1a.xn--p1ai

    This is a type of mailing using the feedback forms that are located in the contact section of the website and filled by our software automatically with a rate of a few thousand contact forms per minute, while the alphanumeric code from the pictures (captcha) is also solved.
    After that, the messages including your commercial offers are sent to the emails of organisations.
    When sending mailing by contact contact forms, it turns out that each site sends a letter to its own e-mail and, therefore, all letters arrive in the inbox folder of the exact email in which the firm receives the commercial information.

    Fast 100% informing of companies and website owners about new commercial offers.
    Search of new customers that other types of advertisements cannot find.

    Finding customers that cannot be found through other types of advertisements.

    1.one hundred % delivery of commercial offers.
    2.Expansion of the customer database.
    3. Expansion of the your market share.
    4.Mailings based on regionality and topics.
    5. Sending offers to directors.
    6. Conducting tenders and studying demand.
    7. Conducting marketing research.
    8. Studying public opinion and conducting surveys.
    9. Notification speed.
    10. Price.
    11. Entering the international markets.

    Our advantages:
    1.When sending mailing by feedback forms, all letters arrive in the inbox. When sending e-newsletters, this can reach up to 5%.

    2.When sending mailing by contact forms it is possible to send a few million e-mails per 24 hours to inboxes. When sending bulk e-mails a few thousands arrive in the inboxes, all the remaining ones often either do not reach or fill the junk folder.

    3. When sending mailing by feedback forms a message does not get blocked by mail systems because it is sent from different sites. When sending e-mail newsletters it is possible to send a few thousands of those but nevertheless all the IP addresses from which the mailing is sent will be in “BAN”.

    4. When sending mailing by contact forms the very little amount of macros is used to form text and headings of the letter. When sending e-newsletters, it is necessary to use «macros» (synonyms) for each word and create ten thousand different headings.

    5. Many organisations deliberatelly hide their e-mail and only leave a contact form for contacting with them.

    6. When sending e-newsletters, your commercial offer is delivered to every employee of the firm, (which causes irritation) compared to mailing by feedback forms where the letter is received at the electronic address specifically set up for commercial offers.

    7.1/2 part of business emails are placed on free mail servers, they are badly “searchable” by mailbox, but when sending mailing by contact forms through these e-mail servers, all letters are hundred % delivered to the recipients.

    8. Only thirty-forty percent of firms are placed in the directories within 2-3 years, and all the other ones are already located in our VOIS databases and are waiting for your commercial offers.
    It turns out that that e-mails of businesses from directories are full of spam, and therefore they will not have such monetisation as when sending mailing by contact forms using our new WHOIS databases.

    9. Any kind of stop words in the headings or body of the message can be sent through feedback forms. When sending e-newsletters, such messages either are not delivered the recipient or arrive in spam.
    The list of stop words of mail systems includes almost all phrases and words that encourage potential customers to take active actions.


    1. Expanding the customer base.
    2. Quick notification of marketplaces about new cooperation offers.
    3. Accessing directors.
    5. Conducting tenders.
    6.Conducting marketing research.
    7.Studying public opinion and conducting surveys.
    8. Searching for customers in international markets.

    Reasons for purchasing this service:

    1. 100% delivery of your letters and commercial offers to millions of businesses around all countries in the world.
    Every website sends a letter to itself so all filters of mails are bypassed.

    2.Mailing by feedback forms is an ideal way in in terms of conducting different researches of marketing, studies and surveys of public opinion on anydirection and type of activity.
    When sending mailing by feedback forms, you will be sure that your letter has been delivered to one hundred percent of consumers of your service and product and if a service or product is “poorly promoted”, then the potential problem lies in in something else, for example in cost.
    At the same time, within 7 days you will see demand for your products and services, you will not need to spend money on renting premises and other more expensive and time-consuming marketing activities.

    3.Mailing by contact forms is the most economical and quickest way to get your service or product to the markets of other countries.

    4. Mailing by contact forms is an excellent tool for conducting different tenders.

    5.Daily update of the database, as more than one hundred and fifty thousand new Internet resources, appear all over the globe daily, and you, in turn, get new potential customers.

    6. Full geographical coverage for all countries of the world.

    7. We offer customers that are not available through other types of advertisement.
    When sending mailing by feedback forms, you will be able to reach out that part of your clientele, that are impossible to find in automatic mode in another way.
    For instance, you will be able to send a commercial offer to those potential customers that were previously unavailable due to filters of mail systems while sending bulk e-mails.
    In reality, there is a very paradoxical situation: businesses in the directories are actually spammed with all sorts of business offers while very little or no e-mails are sent to the remaining ones.

    8. Unique technique of decrypting the CAPTCHA.
    There are services for decoding numeric and alphabetic code (captcha/CAPTCHA). It costs 1$ to solve 1000 captchas.
    It turns out that, processing one million Internet resources the program decodes one million CAPTCHAs, which costs thousand $ only to decode captcha/CAPTCHA, and with our service this is free for you!

    9. By ordering mailing by feedback forms, you are promoting your service or product not to separate people, but to collectives, for example domain .com, where more than 150 million commercial firms from all countries of the world are accumulated (we have samples of them from international zones for every country).

    10. Mailing by feedback forms is also a subtype of SMS mailing
    Email that is linked to the contact form is the main mailbox of firms through which applications and cooperation offers are sent. This e-mail is also set up for cell phones as it is necessary to respond to the information very fast so as not to misplace the order or the relevance of the business offer.

    11. The database of countries also includes all joint organisations from all countries closely related to or working with this country, for instance, national communities and diasporas.
    Ban, sanctions of mail systems and search engines?
    These mailings are an alternative to sending e-mail newsletters, therefore search sanctions and “BAN” do not apply to them.
    Mail delivers the data of letters to the inbox folder, as it goes through the “warm e-mail channel” from the new IP address of the site to the corporate e-mail of the same internet resource.
    In simple language, these mailings “live in e-mails” and e-mail filters do not respond to them, because mail systems have a certain trust in communication channels between internet resources and corporate emails.

    You can buy our databases separately from the mailing by sending us a enquiry by contact form.






    The simplest text of the message + a few headings, the main goal is to interest the future customer, and they will read the rest on your website.
    Most likely, all ads on your subject are already on the Internet, enter the necessary search requests and choose the most interesting ones.
    The headings are substituted randomly from text file.
    Only text messages are sent, links are inserted without problems, they are active. If the client needs pictures or more specific information, then you should forward the potential customer to visit your site.

    In the letter:
    Text without pictures, since pictures do not pass through the contact form.
    Your contact details:
    Internet resource address:

    Fields to fill in:
    Several headings:
