After this self defense class in NYC, people never see high-heeled shoes in the same light again.
The New York Times reports there’s now a self-defense workshop which teaches you how to defend yourself with your four inch heel. That's right ladies, put that mace away, those Louboutins on your feet are all you will need.
The woman behind the movement is Avital Zeisler, 26, a former ballerina and assault victim who regularly teaches hand-to-hand combat to celebrities and police officers alike.
By walking women through a standard set of kicks and punches, she’s helping to prepare them for any situation. The skillset, which she calls the Soteria Method, is named after the Greek goddess of safety.
