Last week in my citizen's police class we learned about defensive tactics...even though it may better be categorized as dance moves, because that is what it looked like when Sara and I practiced the "get away" moves...


So I need to warn you before you read any further...I have debated if I should even post them...scroll slowly people...you've been warned...


these pics are not very flattering....


I know it is difficult to see what I am doing...but I about to elbow that bag...



Sara really got into it: (She may have even yelled out like she was doing karate)...



Speaking of karate...ever seen Karate Kid?? Well, here is my sad interpretation of the crane...my stance prior to kicking the tar out of that bag...yes...I said tar...


Now it's Sara's turn...and you can defend off someone when you are wearing flip flops...it's all in the technique...


Now for the most unflattering pic EVER known to man...what is that all about? Do I think I am in some commercial...the long flowy hair reminds me of Fabio or something...see how I sacrifice looking dorky for you all to get a total experience?

So the best part of the class was when I practiced how to flip an attacker over my back...THIS IS NOT A TUTORIAL by any means ha...my hands are facing the wrong way anyway (thanks, Sara for so loudly pointing that out on the video)......but let's focus on the positive...I so totally fling this fella over my back onto the mat...so in case you were unsure about my techniques above, you definitely now know not to mess with me or my baggy, highwater red sweats...

Man, you guys are kicking butt and taking names! I'm never going to attack you...not that I was thinking about it...but NOW I'm sure I never will.
