As a woman and a mom on my journey to black belt, it is my passion to share my new found empowerment and skills with my gal pals. Karate & Kocktails creates a fun and safe environment to tackle some serious topics that include how predators behave and how we can decode their “act” and defend ourselves from a worst case scenario. We cover way more in the Dojo than I can put in a video. My hope is that all who see this video are inspired to find a self defense class and take charge of their lives. Please pass it on!
My mom would always tell me to be extra aware on days when I was frazzled. That observation and advice saved my life. Self-defense begins with Awareness. Women are perfect targets because we are soooo nurturing and trusting. We want to help any poor soul who comes along. Predators KNOW this and look for signs of vulnerability. As Moms and Women, we want to do the right and helpful thing. BUT if we are aware of a predator’s keen observations of our behavior, we could instantly decode his dramatic script and make the life saving choice. This is not a fun topic. But it is what it is. So let’s get powered up to STOP him dead in his tracks! Take time each day before you leave the house to get centered and grounded. If you are frazzled and can’t pull it together, it may be a day best spent in the privacy and safety of your own home. And please don’t drive your car in that frazzled state of mind. Awareness. Pass it on.
