Flashbacks can make us victims. This sobering reality must be addressed so we can learn how to overcome whatever comes at us.
There’s nerve (thinking outside the box – seeing ordinary objects as weapons), and there’s the will (following through on using improvised weapons to stop an attacker). But, of course, we also need the training to ensure we get the desired results.
Being Intentional About Your Intention – And How It Can Save Your Life
At first blush, all this seems like an almost academic exercise. But practically speaking, it comes down to whether or not you want to be prepared to face whatever comes, including detecting someone’s intention so you don’t get caught by surprise. We want to detect a threat early on to take charge of ourselves and the situation before it gets out of hand.
What Is Proprioception? And Why Do We Need It?
That’s all well and good, but here’s the thing. We live in an increasingly unpredictable world, where we can so easily get confused and disoriented if something comes at us seemingly out of nowhere.

Or worse.
The Power Behind It: The Physics of the Fist
At Tigress’ Roar, we welcome you into a group that’s been there, done that, and continues to learn and grow. We’re doing something most wouldn’t even attempt because it seems too hard. But we’re on a journey together, offering encouragement when someone gets confused or frustrated or wants to give up. Realizing we can’t do this alone, we link arms and move forward together. Because it’s just that important, and we know it.
Who Are You? Self-Awareness is Self-Defense
It’s a great bit of advertising, certainly a catchy phrase. Most of us who heard it growing up, and over the years saw it morph to “You’re worth it,” and finally its current iteration, “We’re worth it.” But darling, you’re worth so much more than being able to change your hair color. You’re worth protecting, and once you get that idea firmly established in your heart and mind, you’ve got a super secret self-defense tool worth treasuring – and maintaining.
