I love, love, love this topic! What woman (hell, what man) doesn't need to learn a few tips on how to defend oneself?!
Jessica made a great point when she emailed me the story about the rapist in Orange County who attacked two women, raping one of them! (FULL STORY) She wrote,
"Since we can't live in a bubble even though I want to what can we do as women to protect ourselves?"
It's a great question that I don't think we ask ourselves enough. Most of us are guilty of the 'it won't happen to me' mentality and that's what predators are banking on.
I have been to a self-defense seminar before, but to answer Jessica's question, I did a little research to refresh my memory.
Of course nothing is better than to actually take a self-defense class. I don't know of any I can personally refer to you that still exist so here's the best I found by searching around the internet. It seems like the most credible of them all since it's done by the UCF police department. It's only $5 to register.

Hope this helps. It's made me want to register too! Besos, xoxo
