Krav Maga Minneapolis Teaching Self-Defense Classes For Women Of All Skill Sets


WORKOUT YOU MAY WANT TO TRY SOMETHING NEW THIS YEAR. KYLIE HAS MORE. Reporter: WE ARE TALKING ABOUT SELF DEFENSE THIS MORNING. WE HAVE GAIL HERE WITH US. TELL ME ABOUT SELF DEFENSE. THIS SYSTEM THAT WE TEACH WAS DEVELOPED FOR THE ISRAELI MILITARY. IT HAS BEEN ADAPTED FOR CIVILIANS. THAT’S WHAT WE TEACH PRIMARILY HERE. WE HAVE A SPECIAL WOMEN-ONLY PROGRAM. WE HAVE A SEMINAR WE TEACH ONCE A MONTH THAT IS FANTASTIC. IT DEALS WITH ALL THE ASPECTS OF SELF DEFENSE FOR WOMEN. IT DEALS WITH AVOIDANCE, PREVENTION AND WHAT TO DO IF YOU GET ATTACKED. Reporter: THAT’S COMING UP THIS SUNDAY. YOU DON’T HAVE TO HAVE A MARTIAL ARTS BACKGROUND. CORRECT. Reporter: SCARLETT AND PETER ARE HERE. THEY’LL SHOW US A COUPLE OF MOVES. THE FIRST MOVE IS THE FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE. CORRECT. IF SOMEBODY MAKES YOU UNCOMFORTABLE YOU NEED TO LET THEM KNOW. SET A BOUNDARY AND WARN THEM. Reporter: THE SIMPLE PHRASE STAY AWAY WORKS MOST OF THE TIME. 90% OF THE TIME THEY’LL BACK OFF. IF THEY ARE NOT TRULY A BAD GUY. IF IT IS SOMEBODY THAT IS CREEPY AND INAPPROPRIATE THEY’LL GO AWAY. Reporter: SAY THEY DON’T AND PETER CONTINUES HIS ATTACK. IT STARTED WITH A TOUCH WHERE HE TOUCHED HER AND THAT GAVE HER PERMISSION. EXACTLY. Reporter: SCARLETT LOOKS LIKE HE IS GOING DOWN ON THE GROUND. MAYBE YOU HAVE FALLEN ON THE GROUND OR THEY THROW YOU TO THE GROUND. IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO FIGHT. Reporter: THIS LOOKS REALLY INTIMIDATING. I WANT TO ASK SCARLETT, YOUR BACKGROUND IS IN BALLET, RIGHT? YES. Reporter: HOW DID YOU MAKE THE MOVE AND TRANSITION OVER? NIGHT TAN LATES WELL. I . IT TAN LATES WELL. — TRANSLATES REALLY WELL. ANYONE CAN DO IT REGARDLESS OF AGE, ABILITY, MOBILITY. Reporter: WHAT IS THE MOST EMPOWERING THING YOU SEE WITH WOMEN? MOST EMPOWERING THING I SEE IS THAT WOMEN ACTUALLY FEEL THEY CAN DO SOMETHING. IT IS ONE THING TO TELL YOURSELF WE ARE TALKING ABOUT DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES. BUT IN THE SEMINAR, THE CHANGE YOU SEE IN WOMEN IS TREMENDOUS. Reporter: IT IS LIFE- CHANGING. WE HAVE TO ASK PETER, ARE YOU OKAY? I AM GOOD. I GET KICKED LIKE THIS A LOT. I LOVE THIS STUFF. I HAVE A WIFE AND A DAUGHTER AND THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS TO TEACH THEM. Reporter: IT IS COMING UP THIS SUNDAY. WE’LL PUT ALL THE INFORMATION AT WCCO.COM/LINKS. I DID HAVE TO LET THEM KNOW THERE IS A LITTLE BIT OF SWEARING IN THE CLASS. NO SWEARING ON LIVE TV THIS MORNING. I LIKE THAT, GET HECK AWAY! I DON’T KNOW IF THAT IS WHAT WOULD COME TO YOUR MIND IF YOU WERE REALLY BEING ATTACKED. IT IS MINNESOTA NICE.
