The weakest and most vulnerable among us need the empowerment of being able to protect themselves. Everyone can't or won't have the dedication to become physically fit. It is not in their nature or in their capabilities. Neither is it the nature of some to venture into the competitive world of self-defense. Grandma at 76 doesn't have the capacity to roll on the mats doing armbars. And let us be realistic. Those of us who are physically fit won't be that way forever. Our bodies wind down no matter how hard we exercise or how strict we diet or what supplements and PED's we take. We need to be able to defend ourselves.
This is a Youtube channel I follow - Armed and Feminine with Kelly Ann Pidgeon that caters to women. Her last video really inspired me, because the very people who need self-defense training the most, and one of these ladies was elderly and in a wheelchair, are out on the pistol range practicing with their self-defense weapons.
Here is the site if you are so inclined to look. However, don't expect bubble butted and giggly girls in bikinis shooting AR's and being filmed by pervs. This is about real women looking for an edge and empowerment. This is another reason I am a proponent of America's 2nd Amendment. The ability to protect yourself from violence gives freedom to the weak.
