What Can You Do If You Are Sexually Harassed?
Friends, affirmative action officers, human resource professionals and women's groups can offer information, advice and support, but only you can decide what is right for you. The only thing you can be absolutely certain of is that ignoring the situation will not cause it to go away. Above all, DO NOT BLAME
Be aware of what you’re doing, beginning with your breathing.
“I am aware that I am breathing.”
“I am aware that I am listening.”
“I am aware that this too shall pass.”
This moment. Here. Now.
We are involved in a rather revolutionary project involving a change in the what, when, why, and how of teaching people of all ages about self-defense. The project has been launched with my martial arts teacher’s association, The One Hundred (The 100), and involves a concept coined Intelligent Curriculum.
The idea of an "Intelligent Curriculum" is a process where web-technology is applied to teaching people about the depth and scope of self-defense as it applies to today’s world. For example, th
Nobody can make you sad, angry, happy, depressed, or grouchy; you don’t give anyone that much power over you. Only you can make yourself anything. Maintain control of your own emotions and thinking.
When someone wants to argue or fight or make you struggle, just tap out. It’s a lot better than getting hurt or causing someone else pain. Tap out and don’t worry, you’ll be able to come back soon enough.
When in a bad position, when under pressure, instead of struggling and wasting energy, embrace your opponent and relax. Your time will come.
Surprise your opponent by doing exactly the opposite of what’s expected. If someone expects you to be hurt, be honored. If they expect you to be angry and upset, surprise them with your calmness. Train yourself this way and you almost always have the advantage.
It takes a certain mindset to be offended by someones words or actions. Choose not to take offense, as once taken, your opponent already has the advantage. Instead of being offended, be “fascinated.” You cannot control others actions, but you can control how you choose to respond to those actions.
When someone pushes you, physically or emotionally, don’t push back. You lose nothing —and often gain a better position. Two wrongs don’t make a right —so resist less and think more.
2. Self-defense training can, in a worst-case scenario, be a life-saver.
3. There’s more talk and focus on respect, courtesy, and self-discipline in a week of our martial arts lessons than the average young person will hear in a year of TV and computer time.
These are lessons that some adults have yet to learn. For example, I think of Terry Jones, the Florida pastor who burned the Quran rec

I'm very interested and seeing what happens when they think no one is watching. I am hoping it will help to further inform our training, and teaching regarding anti-bullying information. If you watch it please come back and post comments, and thoughts as I will be very interested in other's reactions as well.

It's the last day of PRIDE Week at Mount Si High School, but they can't finish
Lately I've been doing a lot of extra reading on communication. What you feel and why or how you communicate it to others. There is a ton written on best way to go about this....

I am learning to choose my words thoughtfully and carefully.... they are words that will last forever with another person.
