Broadsword - Adalia

The Broadsword is considered the King of the Chinese weapons. This form employs postures which move from low to high and combine with dynamic leaps: extended body movements develop the tendons and bones while the spinning moves of the broadsword strengthens the wrists.

Beginning students will learn Part 1. Returning students will learn Part 2.

Slaying the Monster

by Katherine White
One with Heart Self-Defense Program Coordinator

 For the last 20 years I have taught self-defense to women and children. Many come to class most concerned about stranger assault.  These assaults can happen and it is important to feel confident and prepared to handle them.  But the reality is most assaults are committed by someone we know. Many predatory offenders are bright, charming, and well thought of.  The myth that the monster is a crazy stranger hiding in dark can make it difficult for us to assess risk accurately and can prevent our justice system from doing its job – getting the monster off the street. This story recently received national attention and is a good example of how pervasive and dangerous myths about who commits sexual assault can be.



Herbs for Modern Life

Written by Mike Gill

Here in the US, herbs are a novelty.  Most of us tend to respect them up to a point, thinking “Wouldn’t it be great if they really did do those things people say?”  To the rest of the world, they are medicine.  Specifically, they are the first thing used for most ailments, while pharmaceuticals are used only when things have gone so wrong that there is no other option.  What gives?  Why the difference here?
