I can train all I want but I will never beat a Chimp with a machete

Well, I may not be a ninja yet, but I am closer than I was 12 weeks ago!

Ok ok, I probably can’t even use the words “I” and “ninja” in the same sentence because I still close my eyes when someone is swinging at me.  But, it is more like a quick blink now instead of the long flinch/eyes shut tight that it used to be so I call that improvement!

My awesome coach, Dave, and my co-worker/friend, Cathy, spent two nights a week for 12 weeks kicking my butt into self defense shape.  I am so grateful for their time, attention and special care they both took to make sure I was prepared for  anything – except of course, the Chimps in this video.

    1. I am so thankful for your help! I think I will just try to convince the chimps that a banana is better than a machete 😉

  1. Caitlin, you’re amazing! What kind of training are you doing? I haven’t done any self defense in years–I’m thinking of taking a course next year, but I’m not sure what to take.

    Big love!
