I've met an excellent group of ladies here so far, and we decided to attend the class together. Personally, I've never been to a self defense class, but I always thought I should go.
Now, I'm convinced all women should attend whenever they can!
Granted, the class doesn't teach you to be a kung fu fighter in 2 hours. You probably won't be able to go home and kick your husband's butt. However, you DO learn to respond in a frightening situation. You learn to take a breath, think, and react appropriately. You learn several basic moves that might someday save your life and/or your virtue. The class helped me build confidence, so I (hopefully) don't freeze in a precarious situation.
By the end of our time, we were pumped and ready to take on the world!
Have you taken a self defense class before? Keep an eye on your ACS Facebook page, and MWR page… I think you'll be surprised by how many interesting things are offered!
UPDATE: Here's the article from army.mil about our seminar… yours truly was quoted!
Thanks for reading, everyone!
