Packing Pretty is a self-defense blog. While I primarily focus on my area of expertise (firearms and shooting), I want to make sure that several types of defense are introduced and covered here at Packing Pretty.

Just last weekend I had the pleasure of watching  an awesome demonstration at USWC Taekwondo by Amanda. The first thing I noticed about Amanda was that she exerted an aura of confidence, strength and determination that was seen and felt by all who watched her. As soon as I saw her, I knew I had track down and talk to this pretty little pistol!

I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Amanda is only 17 years-old. She shares her passion for Taekwondo by giving demonstrations and being an instructor. She must have a lot of patience as well because her job is to train the Tiny Tigers, the 3-6 year age group.

Even at such a young age, Amanda is already an amazing ambassador for girls and women everywhere who have decided to take on the responsibility of personal protection. Packing Pretty salutes you, Amanda!

Incase my word isn’t enough, check out these videos…

This demonstration is a great reminder to us all that threats rarely act alone, and you may very well find yourself facing a handful of threats at once. Even if you are armed, martial arts are a great tools to have in your “self-defense tool box”.
