|Not from the class. I am just proud of my almost handstand|
Yesterday ACS held a Ladies Self Defense class at one of the on post gyms. I was really excited to go, and ended up having a great time. There is a Sergeant on post who also works at the local martial arts studio. He came and taught about twenty women different moves to get away from an attacker. It was a really good work-out, and also taught many useful skills. We went over what to do if someone grabs your arm, tries to choke you, or has you pinned on your back.
He was extremely respectful, but would actually come up and legitimately try to grab you. This made me feel like what I was learning was actually useful. I was paired up with a good friend, so we went after each other pretty aggressively. I feel much more prepared for living by myself or just being comfortable walking to my car at night. Any Fort Drum ladies, they are going to hold another class in a few months at Adkins. For those of y'all in other cities, I would highly recommend finding a jiu jitsu class or other self defense class.
Anyone else like Jiu Jitsu or other forms of martial arts? The one in Watertown does a 15 week self-defense program that I am thinking about signing up for.
