Eagle Scout and Mountain Pointe High School junior Jacob Rak-Kinonen, along with Chandler MMA owner Master Paul McGowan, hosted a women’s self defense clinic on Feb. 10 as a fundraiser called “Helping women be prepared” for local Boy Scout Troop 1/A212.

Twenty-four women, including teens, learned proper tactics to escape and defend against an attacker, avoidance and awareness tactics, understanding fear and adrenaline, close-range tactics, and more.

One-hundred percent of the proceeds went to support the troop’s trip this summer to jamboree at The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in Virginia.
