Alert reader Donna saw this article in Oprah’s magazine. It recounts how one woman out jogging used the self-defense skills she had learned in a class long ago.
As I was reading October’s issue of “O” Magazine on a bright, sunny Seattle morning this weekend, I came across an article written by Kris who describes how the self-defense skills she had previously learned in a women’s self-defense class came in handy one dreadful day when she was almost raped. Fortunately, Kris had remembered the physical and verbal defense skills she had learned and put them to work when she was attacked. Physical self defense tactics are one of the most important skills a woman can learn.
You can read Kris’ story online.
Kris recognized the reality of imminent physical harm, used decisive targets, and used her voice effectively. Kudos to Kris!
And thanks to Donna for sharing.
PS – do you want to learn what Kris knew? A new cycle of six week self-defense courses will be offered beginning this coming January. Can’t spare 6 weeks? Try the five hour self-defense seminars — next one is December 15.
