After taking a self-defense class in college, I went from being an average student to an honor student. I learned so much more than fighting techniques - I was no longer afraid to raise my hand in class. Feminist Eclectic Martial Arts (FEMA) in Minneapolis empowers women and girls by teaching martial arts and self defense in a safe, supportive, and creative environment. My donation will go to a scholarship fund for women and girls to take FEMA’s Five Fingers of Self Defense classes.
