Courtesy of Brandon Guzzo Kickboxing instructor offers free self-defense classes to UVU and BYU students By Jarom Moore Asst. News Editor The statistics say that one in every eight women in Utah will report being raped in her lifetime. The number of those not reported is estimated to be double that. Brandon Guzzo is a professional trainer for mixed martial arts and teaches kickboxing at this university. He is working on a master's thesis that will change how self-defense is taught and is also offering free classes to prove it. A conventional self-defense class teaches a "fight to win" technique in which the attacked looks to disable the attacker. Guzzo is teaching women "fight to flee." "The longer they stay and fight, the higher the chance to lose," Guzzo said. The people attacking will most likely be bigger and stronger than the women, according to Guzzo. This will sometimes put the victim at a disadvantage and that is why Guzzo wants to change. In the wake of a high profile rape in Provo last summer, as well as the recent assault at the Branbury apartments, he said that this area is a hot spot for cowards to attack. To combat this, he is teaching local classes at The Academy in Orem. The class has been going for a few months now, but their numbers are so low that The Academy might pull it due to lack of support. They are giving Guzzo the space for free and he is giving his time to teach and train, but so far there are only between four and ten in attendance. There is room for 50 to 60, if not more. It is free for students of UVU and BYU, as well as anyone in their families who want to join them. He encourages people to bring sisters, mothers, nieces, grandmothers or whoever they know. This is so they can feel comfortable and train together when they are not at the class. "Practice often and get into a system," Guzzo said.

U , : Paula RngetUVU Review By Paula Rogel Staff Writer The School of Education held its second annual Brain Awareness Fair on March 4 in the McKay Education building to creatively increase understanding of the human brain, its abilities and cognitive functions. This year the focus of the fair was based on John Medina's book Bruin Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School. Pie-service Elementary and Secondary Education students were each assigned to present one of the principles in a creative way to appeal to different types of learners and make it relevant to each one. According to fair organizer and Assistant Professor in the Secondary Education department Dr. Suzy Cox, she wanted to give the students an opportunity to engage more deeply with the course content and think about how they could teach it to someone else and use it in their future teaching careers. "Just reading a book doesn't give students that personal insight," Cox said. Medina presents the science behind ideas about how the brain Continued on A3 1 r- i r- '!!f SV"V iYn9'dZ rsdMilM i2- (iijiifCiiV A Courtesy of UVUSA New servant to the students By Andrea Whatcott News Editor A ten-year-old boy, a pile of sawdust in the front yard and a four-wheeler. The result: two scars on Chris Loumeau's leg where the four-wheeler melted his skin to the bone. After polls closed two weeks ago, that ten-year-old boy, now grown up, became the new student body president of this university. Loumeau, from Coeur d'alene, Idaho, began his scholastic career at BYU-Idaho. "I came down to Provo for a girl and transferred to BYU," Loumeau said. A good friend of Loumeau's, Dave Smith, who is currently the student regent with the Board of Utah Higher Education and an alum of UVU, frequently told Loumeau what a great school this is and urged him to attend. "I kept checking it out, and getting more and more impressed" Loumeau said. "I eventually decided he was right, that I needed to come here. So I transfered from BYU and it's the best thing I've ever done." Loumeau said he was impressed with the opportunities here at UVU, the autonomy of the students and he felt that students had a voice here. "All my family either went to or are going to BYU. I'm the only one who didn't and when I decided go to UVU, it freaked them out - they thought I was making a mistake," Loumeau said. "Now they are really happy that I did." He started at UVU in the fall of 2009. As soon he enrolled here, he became involved in student government as the senator of the School of Business for the 2009-2010 academic year. During the 2010-2011 academic year, Loumeau has and is currently serving as the Vice President of Academics. Loumeau is double majoring in business management and commu- Contimied on A4 v.. .. f v..
