A few weeks ago, jogger Kelly Herron was attacked in a bathroom at Golden Gardens Park while training for a marathon. She managed to fight off her attacker while uttering the (now internet-famous) battle-cry phrase “Not today, motherfucker!”
Herron was able to resist her attacker because she had just completed a self-defense class for women offered by the company she works for, RealSelf, a health and wellness start-up that provides information to those seeking cosmetic or health treatments. The self-defense class was given by community dojo Fighting Chance Seattle. Now, in response to the incident, the start-up is hosting the same self-defense class. It's free and open to the public.
