This blog was created to reach out to all kinds of women! Women who love self defense, women who have never even thought about self defense and all those in between! Our group is in the “LOVES” self defense category! Our goal is to teach you how to protect yourself and your loved ones. We always think “It will never happen to me”, well there are some in our group that thought the same thing but it did! We are here today because we knew how to defend ourselves!

We also wanted to create a little community for women to talk about all kinds of things… some of us on here need to lose 5 or 10 pounds.. so we have a fitness section.. some of us love to eat too.. so we have healthy recipes so we can indulge when we want to but some of us on here need motivation too! That’s why there is a blog on each section! So we can talk about our issues! We can have fun! We can discuss our fears! We will be adding all different kinds of categories along the way!

We hope that you join us on our journey.. as one of our contributors says “Buckle up.. it’s gonna be some ride!!”

The International Combat Hapkido Federation (ICHF)
“The philosophy of Combat Hapkido is very simple: survival We avoid confrontation, but it is not possible to avoid the main objective is to try to survive, without exaggeration, within the law and moral boundaries. “(Grandmaster Pellegrini, Founder of Combat Hapkido, in an interview published in ‘Fighter Magazine’, April 2008).
