And yes, Frank gets to play the role of rapist. The full press release after the jump.
STRIKEFORCE women’s 135-pound sensation Miesha “Takedown” Tate and four-time world champion and MMA pioneer Frank Shamrock will begin production on a DVD project that seeks to educate women on rape prevention techniques this Friday in Los Angeles. Media are invited to attend the event and one-on-one interviews will be available.
The DVD will feature defensive instructions from the MMA stars as well as feature interviews with three high-profile rape victims, who will recount their horrific experiences in order to educate potential victims.
In the instructional component of the video, Shamrock will act as an attacker while Tate demonstrates self defense techniques for a variety of scenarios.
The production is part of Tate’s Take Down Enterprises, which endeavors to educate society on the history of MMA and why it’s the fastest growing sport in the world.
Tate (9-2), of Tacoma, Wash., is coming off a second round submission of previously unbeaten Zoila Frausto at a STRIKEFORCE Challengers event live on SHOWTIME® from Fresno, Calif. on March 26.
Shamrock, the first STRIKEFORCE middleweight champion in history as well as the first-ever UFC middleweight champion, has been educating fans on a regular basis as an announcer for live CBS and SHOWTIME televised STRIKEFORCE MMA events.
