Using his right hand, the opponent (Rick Fine) grabs the defender's (Tasha Kim) handbag. The defender then attacks the exposed neck of the opponent with a left knife-hand strike
Thank You Message
by Janette Weaver
Grandmaster Kim Soo,
I am writing to express my immense gratitude for your influence in
my life. You taught me to have confidence in myself and my abilities.
You taught me to keep my mind focused on training at all times (even
after months of not training). You taught me how to defend myself. Because
of all these things, I am able to write to you today without having
suffered any greater injury than what I recently did.
This man attacked another woman in the same apartment complex two days
later and attempted to take her jeans off. Luckily, she was wearing
a belt that was difficult to remove and tight jeans that he could not
get down and he eventually gave up (after badly beating her). It is
obvious this person was attempting to sexually assault his victims.
I have wanted to thank you since this occurred and apologize for my
delay. I have been struggling to find the words to express my gratitude
to you for your kindness, patience, generous spirit, and passion for
teaching students the art of self-defense. I think I also just needed
some time to recover - mentally and emotionally - from this event.
