Have the Power

Women are considered targets because of how we act and dress. We become vulnerable and don’t even realize it. In a mall, a parking lot, at a bar, women can become victims at any time.  Since there are people in this world that think it’s ok to touch women however they want, we need to be able to defend ourselves. So, I signed up to take a Self Defense Class!

I had been wanting to take a self-defense class for a while now and one popped up on my Instagram recently. Instantly, I signed myself and a friend up for the class. This class was awesome and totally worth it. I didn’t learn how to be Bruce Lee but I did learn techniques to help myself in the event if someone were to attack me. Here are a few pictures from our class:

When it comes to self-defense, it’s better to have the power and not need it, than need it and not have it. Women should never have to feel powerless. Of course, we never want to be in that type of position but taking some precautions will help you if you are. Remember to be alert of your surroundings, don’t carry too many things in your hands, always have a free hand, and have your keys ready if you’re walking to your car. Have the power to help yourself!

A BIG thank you to MASSive Performance and Larry for having this class! You guys rock and I can’t wait to come back!
