SUPER EXCITED to finally add another passport to my collection! This this time it's not another citizenship, but it will definitely take me on a journey :D 🌍🤘 The best present I gave myself last year was to start KRAV MAGA classes. 👊
For the few of you whom I haven't yet driven up the wall with krav talk,it's an Israeli self-defence & close combat system.
I was looking for a technique that would take advantage of the female physique & figured:if it's good enough for the 🇮🇱 female troops, then I'm in the right place. ...And got completely hooked:
It's a massive feel-good confidence booster, a great workout to stay fit💪, and it speeds you up not just physically, but also mentally.
Goes without saying, it's a fantastic stress-relief/anger outlet (don't choke your boss - do it to your krav partner 😉). So if you are a woman (or a guy) fed up with street harassment/ feel unsafe in your neighbourhood, a Lara Croft wannabe, want to get in shape or are simply a control freak like me, Krav is the way!
If you, like me, aren't ready to commit straightaway or feel intimidated, thinking that you'll be the only girl stuck in a gym full of weird men (not at all true, by the way), they do an amazing short Self-Defence For Women course👩👩👧 in Kolonaki http://bit.ly/2n3sL18 called "Stay Away" which is starting again this Friday.
That's what I've started from - it is based on Krav, has all the crucial moves and gives a good opportunity to test out the waters first.
Not to mention it's right in the city centre and the local crowd is super nice.
Anyway, over with blah blah blah.
My 2018's resolution will be to fill my passport with looooads of international stamps. ..And, especially if you are a girl, I hope that yours will be to start Krav Maga! We need more strong women.☝
