Ms. Bauer, an LT Counselor, Dr. Ozark and Mr. Buinauskas reinforced the importance of being aware of their surroundings and the importance of staying away from Alcohol and Drugs, Professor Carlos Lemos Jr. and his 3 assistant coaches Kiea Hoeseton, Renata Step, and Cindy Mckay gave hands on demonstrations about various possible scenarios and very simple techniques that could save them from bad situations.
Our goal in offering this class is to open the lines of communication at home. Materials were provided by the WSPD in the Bulldog string backpack bags with informative ways to prevent such events as well a free training session pass at the GB Downers HQ for each one of the girls.

The fact is that we live in a drug and alcohol society.  We stressed that when impaired, a person’s instincts are muted and trouble often follows.  78% of reported sexual assaults include drug and/or alcohol use by one or both of the parties involved.  It’s not too early to start sharing information with our kids!

 

For professor Carlos Lemos and The GB Downers Crew there were two achievements with this initiative of The Buinaukas’ who are active members of their community and also active practitioners of Gracie Barra Jiu Jitsu. ” We helped girls of our community to defend themselves and to prevent a devastating event as an assault but We also aimed for a cause as important as the awareness of our youth; all the funds made with this seminar were donated to the treatment of Mr. Steve Goytia who’s a Chicago Martial Artist going through brain cancer treatment”

The check is passed from the hands of the Buinauskas’ family to the hands of the Goytia’s family represented by Mr. Joe Goytia.

Professor Lemos took also the opportunity of the visit to teach a teaser workshop to the students of Goytia’s martial arts academy who are getting ready for a major fundraising beneficiary seminar in June with some of the best Gracie Barra Black Belts of the Midwest.
