Typically, my Get Healthy Event posts involve a workout DVD. However, this time I want to highlight a different type of DVD that is definitely going to keep you healthy. It’s Stilettos and Self Defense with Jennifer Cassetta. You may or may not know that I have a brown belt third degree in Shotokan karate. I was in karate for many years as a child and teenager. I quit going to class due to time constraints and work during high school. Since then, I just haven’t returned. However, I still know ways to defend myself and I believe it is really important for females to learn self defense moves. So, I knew I had to feature this DVD.
Jennifer has a third-degree black belt in HapKiDo, she is a NASM certified trainer, and a clinical nutritionist. So, she obviously knows her stuff. Jennifer takes her knowledge to create a fabulous self defense DVD for women. It is packed with lots of information to keep us safe. For instance, she includes the ABC’s of Prevention (Awareness, Body Language, and being Centered and Calm) as well as why these things are important. In addition to that, she actually shows you how to defend yourself using real people. She allows video participants to practice on people for you to watch as well. So, you get to see a move multiple times. Plus, she has you do drills in the video that would be beneficial to know.
Overall, it’s a great self defense video for females. I really love that Jennifer is trying to carry an important message in this one…
that no matter what women wear, what their size, weight or physical strength, every woman can learn to use their body weight as a weapon and hopefully have time to escape.
I prefer to learn self defense moves from a fellow girl because they usually know what will work for us (versus using just strength like a man). I feel like Jennifer really gets that as she provides the viewer with tips to protects themselves. I also applaud her for attempting the self defense moves in high heels. So, would you like to learn some self defense moves? Then enter my giveaway below.
