Continued… Part 2 of 2
Me, Ms. Krystal Joseph & Ms. Priya (one of my father senior members of his Franklin Joseph Krav Maga Self Defence Academy, Bengaluru) in our Power To Women Corporate Self Defense Workshop for Google Cloud’s Women Techmakers and entrepreneurs came across some girls/women who were so scared when we mentioned we were going to teach them Krav Maga Israeli Military Self defense, that they started walking backwards. We (Krystal & Priya) were not 6 feet tall muscular men but we were nearly the same size, age and body structure as most of these women.
So why were they so scared? In our experience, most of these girls were not confident about their physical structure i.e., they believe they are not strong enough or have the physical size, strength or right age to do self defense or they assumed there would be physical stunts or jumps of martial arts & they can’t do those too. Our Krav Maga Israeli Military Self Defense does not have martiala arts stunts or tricks. Krav Maga Israeli Military Self Defense is not even dependent on physical strength, size or age of the practitioner. Once we convinced them of these facts, they were very warm and welcoming to the knowledge we were providing them. Few of them even took selfies with us 🙂
We also meet Mr. Arun Teja Godavarthi (ZeoSpec), from Google Developer, Major Vandana Sharma, Motivational Speaker in the event & Mr. Sandesh from Identityworld.in one of the organisers who were very interested in talking to us about our self defense system and were very thrilled about our tactics.
The theme #WTMDareToBe was also very close to our concept of iTeachiPower.in ‘Girl Empower, Mentor, Lead & Educate Girls’ Instructor Workshop for School & Colleges. We aim to Empower, Lead, Mentor & Educate girls through both psychological knowledge as well as Krav Maga Self Defense Tactical science. #WTMDareToBe fearless concept was to learn effective, fast & simple self defense, which will help these women professional to fearlessly move around the world.
