Calling all women!

… my bedroom! Haha. Ok not really. But this is a shout out to any women in Internetland that live somewhere near the Portland/Metro area. Whether you like kicking ass and taking names or living in a bubble where rated ‘R’ movies don’t exist, I have something for each of you. October 4th the Krav Maga school I attend is having an Open House and offering several different classes to help raise money for the ‘Marni Fund’. Marni Levine was the highest ranked female Krav Maga master until she died of Breast Cancer at only 37. One of the classes that they are offering that day is a women’s only Rape Prevention Class. This isn’t your typical women’s self defense where they tell you to stomp on the bad guy’s foot and yell out ‘NO!’. This is bodies flying, sweat dripping, teeth gnashing self defense. Not your bag? You’d rather walk through gardens sniffing flowers and watching the bees pollenate? Who wouldn’t? The problem is that there could be a bad guy hiding behind the flowers ready to jump out and pollenate YOU. Not fun, and not a happy thought I like to dwell on, but I’m just being real considering the world we live in. All the animals in the animal kingdom have some sort of natural defense/instinct when it comes to defending themselves, human animals should too. Why not learn some simple techniques and get a good workout at the same time? The beauty about this class is the realism in it. Several Clackamas County police officers volunteer to wear fully padded body gear and attack the participants. This allows you to experience a taste of what a real struggle is like and you also get to wail on police officers without going to jail! Awesome on both ends.

In addition to the Rape Prevention class they will be having a silent auction with items from Ipods and Nintendo Wii’s, to gift certificates for spas and restaurants. It’s going to be a fun time, if you don’t want to attend any of the classes at least come out and see what it’s all about. If you don’t want to come at all you can stomp on my foot and yell ‘NO!’, I’ll get the hint.

    “The problem is that there could be a bad guy hiding behind the flowers ready to jump out and pollenate YOU.”

    That’s the funniest rape joke I’ve ever read! Then again, it’s probably the only one I’ve ever read.
