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!
