Am I first? Amazing. Great take on the theme and I hope you were taking part, not just observing. Go girl!
This is a fun theme, I'm beginning to enjoy it. With interpretations like this that are so in the mark, people can entertain us with their posts.I really like yours. I didn't think about this.
I agree, this is a great theme! And yours is perfect for it. Love when ladies can protect themselves!
Or, just buy a gun!
Hey, I remember you had attended this some time ago. I should try to learn self-defence soon. Most of the time, I am usually travelling on my own.Is there any short self-defence course that you would recommend?
Oh I really want to learn Karate. Since i was in elementary I like to watch a karate movie and learn about it. My brother, uncles, and my father knows about karate not myself...Nice take my friend. Mine will be posted later...
It sure does a lot of good to know how to do these things :)
Very cool idea -- not just your photo choice but also self-defense classes for women.
learning self defense is good, not only to be able to protect ourselves when the need arise (but hopefully not), it is good exercise and a way to socialise with other like minded people.
i hope there will be no need for these self-defense skills this weekend or ever =] go women-power =]
I need to learn that too. How are you, ECL? Hope you can check out my entry here: http://www.blessedchic.com/?p=149
Hey, one of the guys,looks like Jackie Chan. Could that be him? Nice interpretation!
Learning any self defense is good for everyone. it's an excellent course.happy weekend.
Ya, it's always good to learn self-defense.
Good idea.No harm in being prepared.Happy weekend to one and all!
Learning martial arts for protection is good not only for ladies but also for men. of course, nowadays, once the criminals start taking out the gun, you can forget about your martial art skills! LOL! Oh, having martial arts skills is good when we go on solo travel : )
Congrats jmb! You're my FC!I did, I was sweating it out! :)
Thanks Photo Cache.I had planned to take pictures of me bashing my guys after the martial arts session, but the guys won't co-operate. :DNo guy wants to be beaten by a girl.
Annie,Ladies need to protect themselves in this wild and crazy world. :)
Dwacon,It's very difficult to buy a gun in Singapore. Possession of a gun can get one charged.
oceanskies,Yes, I attended this a few months back. Vincent Ng was one of the instructors. I can give you Vincent's martial arts school if you want to learn.
gengen,I cannot imagine myself taking up karate. I would be thrown all the time. :DAt my age, I would learn Tai Chi. :)
Julie,The moves are not so difficult and it's amazing what they can do to your assailants. It's a useful course.
YTSL,Self-defence is important to any man or woman. At least I learnt some basics. I don't wish to put them to use though. :)
Lina,It's cool to know kungfu. The lady instructor in the picture is so impressive when she showed her moves. Her hits were fast and accurate!
ian,haha.... don't worry. I won't be using it as I have 4 guys accompanying me this weekend.
Hello Ems!Long time no see!Nice to have you back. :)
Where's the photo of your karate chops?:)
Ebie,That's one of the instructors, Felix. He looks better than Jackie Chan. :)Watching him display his fighting skills makes us girls dropped our jaws! haha....
Life Ramblings,My son and hubby took up martial arts but not me. I pretend I'm too dainty. haha.... I should go for lessons, to keep fit.
Blur Mummy,You should get your girl to learn. :)
Happy weekend jean!Having a skill is always handy when you need it. :)
foongpc,In Singapore, it is not easy for people or any crook to get hold of a gun. I can't say that about some other countries. Having some knowledge of self-defense definitely helps when travelling solo!
Buzzing J,Want to see me getting chopped? :DIt's not karate, it's kungfu! hehe...
Was the kungfu-learning session fun? :D
Eastcoastlife, Women need to learn kongfu to prepare for the worst situation. Please do not bully hushand with no martial art.
It makes me happy to see women taking charge and learning how to stay safe!
Great take on the theme ECL! I think all women should know some martial arts.
Gosh! That is FIERCE! Haha.. I am sure won't mess with her!
So did you pick up any of those hee-haaaaaa moves to fend off those "hum siap los"? :P
there are times when I wanted to give Zaini a back kick! LOLBut I think he'll just tickle me to death if I did that to him whenever I got pissed at him. XD
Sure. I would like to consider. Thanks.
That is a great take on the theme. And really good pictures. Thanks for stopping by my hunt.
great way to protect ourselves from harm!
So important for everyone to learn these skills, but how many actually do? I haven't, for one.
I love martial arts! Learning that and also learning self defense is one of the best things one can do for oneself.I would have loved to see a pic of you bashing the guys! ;)
So have u mastered all those deadly moves? ;p
GREAT idea! Let's see you in action, eastcoast!
I must go learn how to protect myself :-D
Great post and photos for this week! :)
oh, that is so cool and that is so applicable in our present times. Ladies should know how to protect themselves.
I wasn't able to participate for this theme. I'll make it up on the next one.Those are great shots! I think it's valuable to learn basic self defense.
