Her dream was to combine her martial arts skills with a blog and teach others how to be safe. With this blog, she is doing just that.
Although this blog is new, the author is no stranger to blogosphere. She blogged for awhile, then went on hiatus. Now she’s back, writing about that which ignites her passion – teaching her audience ways to react in situations we may not have planned for.
In her post titled, Self Defense With Heel Palm Strike she shares a technique that could buy us some time if we encounter an attacker. This basic karate move could,
* Painfully slam the lower teeth into the upper teeth
* Stun a person for a few moments
* Put a person off balance enough to fall backwards
* Knock someone out completely from the impact of the strike
* Make a stunned attacker fall and knock themselves out when they hit the ground with their head
Ouch! That sounds like it would hurt, doesn’t it? The post shares the entire lesson.
Road rage is another situation we don’t plan for. Although some have experienced it, the majority of us wouldn’t know what to do. In No One Wants This Kind Of Relationship she shares why some people feel a need to confront others.
Criminal violence is a relationship. It’s a sucky relationship, to be sure, but the target’s voluntary participation is not required. The bad guys grab control, forcing their will on another so they can quench their need for sadism, manipulation, venting, power, or fulfilled entitlement.
In this article she shares suggestions for how you can react if you find yourself in this position.
In life we meet all kinds of people and her post titled Defense Against the Dark Hearts begins with a description of what “dark hearts” are.
* Friends who frequently sap you of energy
* Co-workers who make your life miserable
* Family who drive you crazy with silly arguments
* Teachers who make you always feel insignificant
* Bosses who make you feel like you have to walk on eggshells around them
I don’t know about you, but I’ve known a dark heart, or two. When she goes on to tell her readers why some act the way they do and how to deal with them, you’ll gain a better perspective on what to do and how to protect yourself from being intimidated or caught up in their web of deception.
With physical, mental and emotional self defense being the topic of this blog, for those who care about their own safety plus the safety of their children, this blog is a “subscription must”.
Many of you have seen her on your blog. Some have seen her here. She can also be found on Twitter.
Without further ado, I’d like to re-introduce Lori Hoeck, third degree black belt, senior martial arts instructor and author of Think Like a Black Belt.
Please join me in re-welcoming Lori to the Blogging Without A Blog community.
Welcome again, Lori.
It’s a joy to have you blogging again. I look forward to all of your future posts on a blog that’s sure to be a huge success.
