All Choked Up

Here are a few self-defense techniques we’ve been working on in class lately.  They are actually pretty practical to know.  I remember a time when I was a girl; a boy grabbed me by the throat and started choking me, just like in the video.  I was shocked and frightened and had no idea what to do.  I dare him to try that on me now. ;)

The second technique (escaping a bear hug from behind) is also practical and very easy to do.  Just be careful when you’re throwing those elbows – once I accidentally gave Miss Munchkin a bloody nose in class after she tried to pick me up.  Sorry Sweetie!

Bring it!

Won't Doughbird be surprised next time he tries the bear hug?

I think it's awesome that you know how to do this!

Watch out Doughbird! I've unleashed a monster. :)

Nichole - I think it's neat too, although sometimes I still can't quite believe that I'm doing something like this.

I want to learn this stuff. I think I will take my daughters when they get a little older.
