In light of the kidnapping and imprisonment of Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus, all of whom are now women, the importance of “environmental-awareness” is paramount in people’s minds.
Part of our EZ Defense for Women and Children includes teaching you awareness of your surroundings, and listening to that “inner voice” — because it’s usually spot on.
And if it’s not, well, it’s better to be rude than dead.
Fortunately, the three women who were found will be able to return to their families, and hopefully, with time, will be able to get over their horrific ordeal and heal. Often times, in kidnappings such as these, however, not everyone gets to go home. JILL MCNEAL, a local Channel 6 News Anchor/Reporter, visited Arts of the Samurai this morning, and interviewed Sensei Toni McSorley and some of her students, on the benefits of learning self-defense:
“KNOXVILLE (WATE) – With the three women recently freed from a decade of captivity in Cleveland, people are wondering how exactly were they abducted in the first place and how they can protect themselves. Toni McSorley has been teaching martial arts and self-defense for more than 40 years. She teaches a three and a half hour class called EZ Defense for Women that focuses on not becoming a target, but gives you the skills if you ever need to fight.”
