EVERYTHING IS A WEAPON

One of my favorite concepts to bring up when I’m instructing women in self-defense is that just about EVERYTHING CAN BE USED AS A WEAPON. I don’t like to confine women’s minds into believing that a handgun is the only route to self-defense. Some women don’t want a gun, and other times, women who do have guns can’t always access them easily. That is why I teach my students to view everything as a potential tool to aid in their defense.… Read the rest

PACKING PRETTY’S POINTERS ON STAYING SAFE

 

This is a guest post I did for my friend Vanessa over at Mixed Martial Arts and Crafts. It’s about the importance of personal protection for women. I think it covers some very important points and is well worth a read!

EVERY 2 MINUTES SOMEONE IN THE U.S. IS SEXUALLY ASSAULTED

Knowing how and being capable of defending yourself are two separate things. Just because one has read up on and watched defense techniques does not make one proficient in them.

PACKING MORE THAN JUST POO-BAGS

As a mom to three dogs ( 2 beagles and a corgi) walks, runs and playdates at the  dog park  are a normal part of my day-to-day life. As I was gearing up to take the dogs out the other day, it occurred to me that, once again, I had almost forgotten to bring those little plastic poo-bags. I shared a quiet chuckle with myself as I contemplated just how wrong it is that I never forget to put my gun on when I leave the house; however, I always forget to bring the other imperative items that every other girl in the world wouldn’t leave behind (like my cell phone, chapstick , and in this case, poo-bags).… Read the rest

A LITTLE SOMETHING FUN

These are Sentry 9mm earbuds; similar to the MUNITIO ones. These are fun and seem to work pretty well. They don’t fall out when I work out…that’s mainly what matters.

The only thing that irritates me about these is that  both Sentry and  MUNITIO call them bullets when really they are shortened replicas of the entire assembled around, the cartridge. But hey, not everyone knows that the bullet is just the projectile.
