Episode #83: Self-Defense, Self-Care, and The Art of The Ninja
Susie Kahlich is a Certified Instructor in Ninpo Tai Jutsu, the Art of the Ninja. She is also the founder and owner of Pretty Deadly Self Defense, a program dedicated to teaching women the art of self-defense by finding their inner strength and power through natural movements and self-exploration.
As a 20 year martial arts practitioner and violent crime survivor, Susie created Pretty Deadly Self Defense as an answer to traditional, male-led self-defense classes which tend to be fear driven and focus on women’s weaknesses and vulnerabilities. Susie understands that women learn better through encouragement, playfulness, and positive experiences.
Susie shares her remarkable story how martial arts helped her heal from a traumatic experience, how she became her teacher’s first female certified instructor in Ninpo Tai Jutsu, and the grueling but deeply rewarding journey that resulted from her experience.
