Athleta womens self defense workshop, Saturday July 20

I am super excited to be doing another women’s self defense workshop with Athleta. The event will be held closer to Athleta’s Henderson location at Dragon’s gym in LV. I will be focusing on techniques standing up and both on the ground to defend against an attacker. My speciality is ground work - what happens when you are already flat on your back. It is probably the most import because it is the hardest to get away from, yet it is the most overlooked. For all the ladies who missed my 1st workshops with Athleta in May, Come along to this one this Saturday July 20. Bring your sisters, mothers, friends and co workers. Let’s spread the word and collectively empower ourselves as women!

Last weekend I taught a women’s self defense workshop with Athleta at Redemption in Summerlin LV. I was so happy to see so many amazing ladies come to learn to further empower themselves. I taught a few techniques starting up and on the ground. I also covered a few basic physiologic aspects such as awareness and standing your ground.

Thank you Athleta for putting on this event and thank you for the gear! I love their clothing, but more importantly, I love what Athleta stands for. They strive to empower women and girls through fitness.

I love my Athleta marble set!
