I took this life saving women's defense class that is in the Bay Area. It's not a martial arts class but something everyone can do with special techniques to defend yourself and the first part of the course is about awareness and to understand how a predictor can think and how they calculate getting their victims when they are off guard. It was interesting to learn that these predators will even be in a Starbucks and listen to when your name is called and then follow you outside and say that name as if they know you and then you let down your guard. She said to use your middle name so then you know if someone calls out that name you will be on guard or run diagonally yelling back off. The class is taught by a woman who has been associated with the swat team and law enforcement. I highly recommend it if to all my friends and their daughters. I actually used what I learned in the class the other night which saved me from a predator who was following me. Rebecca is an amazing instructor!
