Rape Crisis benefit turns 'dangerously cute' women into their own strongest allies

Annele gets 'forcible' with an attacker.


I chose my attacker (imagine that feeling!), went into the pit, and closed my eyes. I felt like my heart was going to explode. I felt him grab my left wrist and pull. I opened my eyes and just started hitting his helmeted head and kicking him with every muscle in my body engaged. I stayed standing up and probably ran away too quickly, but if that's part of our self-defense, I'll take it. Some women went in for two rounds, but I was fine with just one.

I would recommend such a crash course to any person, of any gender, who has been abused, feels unsafe, bullied, or just wants to learn these extremely valuable self-defense techniques. In San Antonio, three new sexual assault cases are reported daily, with many more that go unreported. Don't be foolish enough to think it won't happen to you, because it can. It could be at a time and by someone you least expect. Even by someone you know and trust. You are not alone. It is not your fault. Learn to defend yourself and never be a victim, or never be a victim again. I'm glad I did Krav Maga's training. A few bruises and two days of total body soreness seem like a small price to pay for the confidence I gained. I didn't even break a nail.
