You just got off the late shift at work, and an unsatisfied customer wants his money back for a bad meal, so he gets too close and threatens you. Do you know what you should do in this situation? Most women think they know what they would do, and that overconfidence could lead them to do something harmful to themselves. Kelly Muir wants you to avoid this, so she teaches a few self-defense for women exercises that you can use to hone your elbow striking skill for a physical defense situation. Because of the large surface area of the elbow and the power we derive from our hips, you can use your elbow to deal destructive, even devastating blows to your attacker.
