Women's Defense

I was able to witness some very, VERY intense action at the Strasburg High School gym last night. Strasburg's Finest put on a 3-day/6-hour women's self-defense seminar. My wife and daughter took part, and my son and I were invited by the force to view the last session... the graduation gauntlet.

My daughter is the lovely lady in red - I am especially proud of her, since she was the youngest trainee, and in the frames below, you'll see how small she was compared to her opponents in blue... one of the officers has got to be 6'4"... which evident in the frame of her lunging from the left.

The ladies were fired up, and they handed some whoopass to the instructors, who had to repeatedly switch out the soft-suit... punches have a way of getting through.

Thanks to the SPD for putting this event on!

Selfishly, I was able to shoot some excellent dramatic photographic reference! I see huge potential with the lighting and action... I need to get into the studio!
