My Groin Cup Is My Protector
When I was in junior college, at a party, I was kneed in the groin by a girl (her name is Lisa) so hard that she floored me and I had to be taken to the hospital. She ruined me for life.
Lisa had taken a self defense class and, at the time, I just couldn't live with the fact that a woman's knee could be so powerful. To this day, 37 years later, I still get PTSD flashbacks and panic attacks whenever something triggers a memory of how hard Lisa kneed me in the groin.
The fact that Lisa had taken a self defense class and that she used her skills to injure me, while I had no training at all, was my motivation to join a karate school.
When I started taking karate classes, the most valuable lesson I learned was the security and protection that a well made groin cup will provide. During sparring matches I felt amazingly empowered seeing hard kicks to my groin aria harmlessly blocked by my groin cup.
To this day, I wear my groin cup whenever I go out in public. Never again will anybody ever put me down like Lisa did 37 years ago.......
