Took a self-defense class tonight. What a physical and emotional workout. Erin Weed of Girls Fight Back is an amazing teacher and tireless advocate of helping women be safe. Once again I feel fortunate to know her.

Basically she helped us put some “tools” in our “toolbox” to pull out in unsavory situations. We had to try each move she taught us and really learn to improvise where needed. There is a certain amount of self-consciousness involved in executing the moves, but it gets easier and more empowering the more you do it. Hope to never need them.

Rock on.
