Bill Kipp –FAST Self Defense Seminar

Tonight my school had a self defense seminar hosted by Bill Kipp. This is the second time I’ve done the seminar and it was just as cool the second time as the first time. The premise is to teach easy things ANYONE, not just a martial artist can do to defend yourself, and even better, prevent yourself from getting into the situation in the first place.

FAST stands for…ummm….lemme go look that up…lol oh here it is: fear adrenal stress training

We rehersed how not to be passive or aggressive in our stance, but to be assertive–stand with one leg back, hands in front, make eye contact…

Use your voice–NO STAY BACK lol…he called it the “bad dog” voice–dogs will listen to it and so will human “dogs”

Then we went over some basic strikes–eye pokes, knee to the groin, and slaps to the groin…

And the best part? Getting to practice on a fully padded guy who attacks you…

What a rush!

It is videotaped so you can watch it after you are done, because you are so hyped up while it’s going on its hard to remember later…its totally cool.

If there is ever a seminar near you, GO! It is one of the most amazing and useful seminars you will attend, male or female.

For more information, you can go to their website, here; or you can check out their blog, here.

and here are some youtube vids (not from my school):

  1. The videos and the info are great. I think every woman should know the basics for defending herself and this makes me want to look up a class in my area and bring along some friends. Thanks again.
