Ever thought of taking a self-defense course?
« on: July 17, 2015, 11:28:41 PM »
(this question has nothing to do with MH or being a "Moodie.")


Took judo in Grade 7 - doesn't count.

 

If I had extra $, I would take maybe Krav Maga - it was invented by a Jewish guy in Bratislava (?) who was sick of anti Semitic thugs. (years ago)

I believe it's used by the Israeli (and Russian?) armed forces? It's a combination of other martial arts.

There are other Russian self defence methods........I forget the names.

Why am I interested? - I'm old (68), in a dumpy neighbourhood, fitness, the world is more and more dangerous.  Exercise.....confidence.

Hello Peter. If you feel that taking a self defense course would help you, by all means take one.  I'm not sure that I could bend enough these days to judo LOL.

 I have came across an interesting websites (and there are lots dealing with seniors and self defense) . http://seniors.lovetoknow.com/Self_Defense_for_Seniors   .  Take Care. paul m

I'd love to do some kind of self-defense to feel more empowered and self-confident but everything is always at a cost these days. If you find anything on the cheaper end in Toronto I'd love to hear about it.
