The Woman’s Core Course
This is a course that is designed to introduce people to the simplest form of physical self protection skills. It is not a complete study but useful for those who choose not to practice more and for weekend type training events.
This is a course that is designed to specifically address the physical needs of women to fight back against assault. It is not meant to address the skills of prevention but only as a means of preparation to physically resist violence, abuse, and predation.
- It is meant as a course in fundamentals that anyone can benefit from.
- It is meant to give you practical and direct skills that you can use without a lot of training.
- It includes becoming familiar with the necessary components of fighting back from mentality to physical responses utilizing the most powerful tools in your arsenal to the weakest targets of the attacker.
Principles and strategies are discussed to get you developing tactics on the fly.
|The Horizontal Elbow strike is detailed out to show you the mechanics of powerful hitting.|
|The Upward or Vertical elbow strike is most often used against the chin and the arms of an attacker but simply raising your elbow forward and upward, but learning power with it is a different story.|
|The back elbow, is an elbow used when you want to strike backwards using the back portion of the elbow to inflict disrupt, stun, or damage an attacker. Watch the video to learn proper use, power development, and ideas on ways to practice.|
|This is sometimes used at times where there is not a lot of space to strike with the hand because perhaps the attacker is too close. However, you still need to defend yourself so sometimes this elbow comes in handy.|

|Supported Hammer Fist||00:02:00|
|The Supported Hammer Fist is a hammer fist variation that uses both hands for power. Much like the swing of a racquet or a baseball bat this hit uses the entire body when done well.|
|The Palm Strike and more accurately the Palm Heel Strike is useful in places where you are afraid to hurt your fist or that the positions and space are more suited for this kind of strike. You should try to use the base of the palm for this strike and many times it will be delivered as a thrust.|
