My First Self-Defense Class

Friday, February 20, 2015      7 comments

I had to travel a bit of a distance for this one, but it was well-worth it. Only three people showed up, and two instructors, so there was a lot of personal attention to the moves. It was such a good class that, when I got home, I called... Read more
