Doing it all for the ladies

Last Saturday I spent most of the day surrounded by 30 sweaty, screaming women. Now I’m sure you’re thinking “Well, that’s just a typical day for Micah…” and if it was a Tuesday you would be correct, but most Saturdays are much more mellow for me. I wasn’t at a Radiohead or John Mayer concert nor was I at the beach with these lovely loud ladies. Instead I was at the Krav Maga school where I can be found nearly every damn day. I’d like to think that the 30 women were there for me, but in reality they were there to kick some ass, and kick ass they did!
Last weekend the KM School put on a Rape Prevention Seminar as part of the Sexual assault Awareness Month that is happening right now. I was asked to take part and be a coach for the event. This meant I got to be the instructor’s demonstration dummy and get kneed, punched, elbowed and thrown. It was a lot of fun. The highlight of the day for us coaches and the women was forming two circles around padded attackers. These attackers grab and try to choke the women and the goal of the women is to defend themselves, not allowing the attacker to get them. The attackers are decently big guys and the odds appear to be in their favor but make no mistake, girls can kick just as much ass as anyone else. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many groin kicks in one day. And even though the attackers were well padded they still emerged battered, bloodied and bruised. It was an awesome day and I believe that most, if not all of the women left with a new sense of confidence and accomplishment.

So if you’re not a fan of raping, you should listen up. In about a week and a half on Saturday April 18th the KM school is going to put on another Rape Prevention Seminar. If you like kicking ass or want to better understand how to defend yourself, you should sign up. It’s guaranteed to be a good time and lots of fun. I personally won’t be suiting up in a big bad man padded suit so if you want to kick *my* ass, it’s going to have to wait. But I do promise to yell and scream at you with encouragement with all the rest of the people in the class.
