Balance between big sister & teacher in iTeachiPower.in

Need Base India Rainbow Home, Bengaluru iTeachiPower.in Girl Safety Empowerment & Military Girl Self Defense Education Workshop Teaching young girls is always a challenge as well as a learning experience. Kids get distracted easily and it becomes a fun challenge to keep their eyes on you as well as make them understand what you are teaching. I got a chance to work on this skill in Need Base India Rainbow Home, Bengaluru. I started the session with a short introduction about myself followed by a story. I told them the story of my first pushup and how hard it was for me in the beginning and my gradual improvement to doing 40 pushups. My father, Guru-ji Franklin Joseph told me to do a pushup as a demonstration of what I was talking about. One of the reasons why I think it is important to demonstrate me doing a push up Read More

My first solo iTeachiPower.in workshop with girls

Baale Mane, Gopalapura iTeachiPower.in – Girl Safety Empowerment & Girl Self Defense Wellness Education Workshop It is important to start somewhere. I started my journey as a solo instructor/mentor with iTeachiPower.in Girl Safety Empowerment & Self Defense Education through an online workshop with the Baale Mane, a non-profit organisation in Gopalapura. It was my first solo workshop because my dad Mr. Franklin Joseph was in Bengaluru taking his Krav Maga Israeli Military Self Defense classes. Despite taking many Krav Maga Israeli Military Self Defense classes in the past, I was a little nervous starting out, since this was the first time I was the teacher and mentor for a group of teens and kids. My syllabus and my years of training told me what I needed to teach. But at the beginning, I was a bit concerned that the girls might not enjoy my training. Despite this, I drew strength from Read More

Do my parents love me being a girl-child?

My name is Krystal Joseph – a girl-child living in Dharwad, Karnataka. These are my thoughts along with my father Franklin Joseph suggestions on girl-child safety empowerment. I have heard that some parents are not happy having a girl-child. But as soon as they get a boy-child they will be so happy, making feast, busting crackers, giving sweets etc. But for a girl-child, nothing is done to celebrate her birth. Coming back to the question, do my parents love me being a girl-child? Yes, my parents love me being a girl-child. My Father My father came all the way from Delhi to Dharwad, just to see me. He saw me and my mother in the computer on a marriage website. The first time he met me, I was fast asleep. My father was looking at me, wishing to hug me but since I was fast asleep, he did not disturb Read More

Is Krystal Joseph weak being a girl-child?

I was practising Krav Maga Israeli Self Defense with my father. My father’s 20 years old student joined us for training. Father told me to punch on the student’s stomach. I became very shy to punch on his stomach. When do I become shy? When I meet my friends after many days, I become shy! Whenever I meet my uncle, I become shy! When I have to talk to strangers When somebody praises me Is shyness being weak? I used to think only unknown people are bad. My father told me when children are hurt from adults, more known people (family relatives, neighbours and friends) are being bad to these children. If children are shy all the time, they will not be able to saw ‘No’ to these bad people. So, being shy sometimes is good and sometimes bad. So children must be taught in school and home about good Read More

“Be confident & tough” Krystal Joseph

On 30 October, 2013, I was doing Krav Maga training with my father Franklin Joseph who is a teacher in Krav Maga Israeli Self Defense. I was doing ‘Hand Release’ tactics with my father where he acted like a bad person holding my hand on the street and I am supposed to release the hand and run away. He was holding my hand very tightly so it pained a lot. It was getting harder and harder for me to release my hand repeatedly as I had to release it 30 times. So during practice and after the class, my hands pained a lot and they turned red as a tomato. I felt like crying also. After the training, I put ice packs on my hand to recover from the redness and the pain. After 20 minutes, I checked my hand and I was happy to see my hands recovering. It Read More
