The Women’s Warrior Workout

by Melanie Murphy

      Every two and a half minutes, somewhere in America, someone is sexually assaulted. In 2004-2005 there were an annual average of 200,780 victims of rape, attempted rape, or sexual assault with one in six being women (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, downloaded from their website December 17, 2006).

With such startling statistics as those listed above it is crucial that women learn self defense to protect themselves from being the next victim of a violent crime. The Women’s Warrior Workout is a creative way to teach self defense tactics while getting a high intensity work out.

Melanie Murphy is a master of self defense. She is one of only two women in the country to hold a fourth degree black belt from the National Karate Association. Since 1983, she has trained thousands of women in the techniques of self defense.

The Women’s Warrior Workout helps to build and sculpt a warrior’s body inside and out. It will show you how to prepare yourself mentally and physically for any attack. The key concept that Murphy drills into participants is to be able to turn fear into power. By being able to condition your body to be faster, fitter, and trimmer warrior instincts will become a natural way of life.

One of the fascinating things that Murphy reveals is that she has interviewed actual perpetrators and learned what things drew them to their victims. In addition I got a very unique experience on how to tune into my Zanchen Mind. This is the intuitive ability to stay calm and confident in any situation.

The ability to defend oneself is essential for survival. Women worldwide should invest the short time needed to learn the techniques featured on this DVD. By practicing it for 40 minutes, twice a week, you will quickly see a new you emerge. Very highly recommended.
