Please read Part 1 of 2 – Google Women Techmakers Learn Krav Maga in PowerToWomen.in website. 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 Read More
Arvind Mills, Bengaluru Power To Women Corporate Self Defense Workshop We (Guru-ji Franklin Joseph, CEO – Indian Institute of Strategic Threat-Intelligence Analysis & Combat Tactical Science & me, Krystal Joseph – Social Entrepreneur, Krav Maga Specialist & CEO of iTeachiPower.in ‘Girl Empower, Mentor, Lead & Educate Girls’ Instructor Workshop for School & Colleges) conducted this Power To Women Corporate Self Defense Workshop for the women factory workers of Arvind Mills in Bangalore. Speaking in Kannada (Karnataka’s native language) has always been difficult. I can communicate in Kannada well enough for general purposes, but I am not as fluent grammatically. So, when we had to do the Power To Women Corporate Self Defense Workshop entirely in Kannada, I felt conflicted. Because my father was born and raised in Delhi, the task of conducting the workshop entirely in Kannada fell entirely on my shoulders. I was overjoyed because I had been chosen Read More
Need Base India Rainbow Home, Bengaluru iTeachiPower.in ‘Girl Empower, Mentor, Lead & Educate Girls’ Instructor Workshop for School & Colleges 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, Krystal Joseph, Social Entrepreneur, Specialist & CEO of iTeachiPower.in ‘Girl Empower, Mentor, Lead & Educate Girls’ Instructor Workshop for School & Colleges, started the session with a short introduction about myself followed by a story.

Baale Mane, Gopalapura iTeachiPower.in ‘Girl Empower, Mentor, Lead & Educate Girls’ Instructor Workshop for School & Colleges It is important to start somewhere. I started my journey as a solo instructor/mentor with iTeachiPower.in ‘Girl Empower, Mentor, Lead & Educate Girls’ Instructor Workshop for School & Colleges 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 Read More
Here I, Krystal Joseph – Social Entrpunure, Krav Maga Specialist & CEO – iTeachiPower.in ‘Girl Empower, Mentor, Lead & Educate Girls’ Instructor Workshop for School & Colleges, am showcasing how to use an umbrella as a self-defence tool in a mob situation or in an assault with my father Mr Franklin Joseph – Specialist & CEO of Indian Institute of Strategic Threat-Intelligence Analysis & Combat Tactical Science & Specialist in Krav Maga Israeli Self Defence.
On 30 October, 2013, I, Krystal Joseph 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 Read More
