Today in my Women's Lives class we had a demonstration on karate self defense! We learned a lot of nice moves for all kinds of situations where we might find ourselves about to become a victim of violence. My favorite was the smash in the nose followed by a kick in the groin, karate style! We also learned to impersonate "tiger eyes" which was quite entertaining. We learned that when we concentrate all of our fear or nerves into strength in our core...we can pack a might powerful punch! Only in self defense, of course. At the end, we got to break boards with our knees and hands. I think it is really important for women to know that they aren't powerless in scary situations.
