I walked into a dojo at the end of May with the intention of learning self-defense. •
I never dreamed that I’d be starting a life path. •
Since that day, I’ve trained every week unless I’ve been out of town. •
Two days a week has become four days a week. •
The dojo has become a second home and the people that I train with have become my closest friends. •
My day-job is as a Sexual Empowerment Coach. •
I work with people every day, helping them live more empowered lives. •
For me, Jiu Jitsu is a part of my personal empowerment process. •
I decided to turn my IG page into one documenting this journey. •
The old posts are gone but I hope you’ll enjoy the new ones. •

회피성인격장애에 대한 책이랑 중년여성의 삶에 대한 책.
아주 많은 사람들이 회피성인격장애를 가지고 있는거 같다라는 생각을 하게 만든 책.
실패하더라도 시도와 도전은 나의 가능성을 확인할수 있는 소중한 경험이고 그 용기가 나를 주체적이고 자유롭게 만들어준다.
당신이 어떠한 심리적 장애와 트라우마를 가지고 있던지와는 상관없이 당신은 극복할수있다.
내가 중년여성이 아니라서 그렇게 재밌지는 않았지만 그래도 공감되는 부분도 있고 이해할수 있는 시각을 갖을 수 있을거 같다.
엄마는 내가 태어날때 부터 엄마지만 내가 태어나기 바로 직전까지는 그냥 여자였기 때문에 당연히 서툴수밖에 없었겠거니... 며칠전에 자존감수업이라는 책을 읽었는데 모든 결론은 한곳에 귀결이 된다.
The Maple Koi Gi has the maple koi design printed on the inner jacket. It is manufactured on a black coloured jacket to really make the koi depiction stand out. Also finished off with Japanese embroidered flower emblems, to add a touch off authenticity.

An attacker is running in full speed, holding what looks like a baseball bat towards the victim that stands by a car, holding his belongings in his hands.
It seems like the attacker screams prior to attacking, which is common amongst all animals, to create fear, since all animals are born with the fear of sudden sounds.
Before the attacker raises the bat, he must naturally slow down for gaining "the perfect distance" to perform a physical attack. After this the attacker raises the bat, with the victims head as an aim.
Till this point, only four (4) seconds has passed, and now they’re in the black zone, meaning physical attacks are possible.
PS. Just as +90% of the worlds population is right handed, this attacker holds his weapon in his right hand.
The best selfdefence is to create distance by running away, but that’s not always a possibility, and reacting rationally within 4 seconds is extremely tough.
The victim stood with his shoulder towards the attackers at first.
When the attacker got in the black zone, rapidly, the victim,
2a. Turns chest-to-chest towards the attacker to face the threat.
2b. Puts his guard up.
2c. Protects his head by hiding it in the attackers chest, and simultaneously drops his belongings.
2d. He goes for an “over and underhook”. His left arm blocks the attackers right arm/bat and prevents the attack from succeeding. After that he continues to overhook the arm and suck it in to his own body, limiting the attackers movement in his right arm. He does this at the same time as the victims right arm goes under the attackers left arm, minimising the rotation of the attackers left shoulder for further movement.
ALL OF THIS WITHIN ONE (1) SECOND.
Now the victim is in full control of the attacker and bull rushes both their bodies into a car, hugs the attacker tight to make him tired, grabs the bat, then move to another car, holding the attacker in a “Full Nelson” and screaming “Call the cops!”
After a couple of seconds the attacker tries to poke the victims eyes, but all the victim does is to apply pressure to the already existing Full Nelson, to break his posture. (... Full text in comments)
