Episode 54 - 101 Weapons for Women: Implement Weaponry - A Unique Concept in Women's Self Defense by Rodney R. Rice *Special Guest Paul Lowe*

81 minutes

This week we learn how to (not) defend ourselves with objects through a book infamous for its imagery! Thanks to our friend Chris H. for posting some images from this book on Facebook, which inspired Paris to do a reverse image search and discover this lost treasure from 1991.

We're joined by special guest Paul Lowe to guide us through the world of martial arts. Paul has studied Muay Thai and MMA for most of his life and now works at Sityodtong Muay Thai Academy, a world renowned fight sport gym that has produced many successful MMA and Muay Thai fighters.

Whoops!

  • The book does actually recommend you put analgesic ointment primarily into the eyes and then maybe the genitals if you have the opportunity.
