24 Apr Bruises Aren’t a Sign Of Weakness!
We don’t need to protect women, we need to teach them how to protect themselves. We don’t need to empower, we need to let them be strong. This is a wonderful repost from @luminousarchitecture – I took a bit of a beating training P3 fight tactics last night at Krav Maga Experts – Park Slope Brooklyn and despite looking a little bruised and battered, I’m feelin’ strong and resilient. Our teacher always reminds us we’re not made of glass. We can get hit and not break. Sure, I’m a little sore and tender to the touch, but that’s not stopping me from proudly showing off my battle wounds. These bruises occurred because I deflected body shots over and over again last night. Becoming a strong, self-reliant woman isn’t easy and takes a kind of grit that doesn’t fit the mold of what most think as feminine or lady like, but I’m not one for fitting into molds that our society constructs. I can be a flowing, juicy, gentle, and loving woman who also isn’t afraid to kick some ass. • • • #kravmaga #kravmagaexperts #selfdefense #empowerment #strong #strongwoman #fighter #brooklyn #nyc #bruises #badass #beabadass
