Girls Fight Back is the project of Erin Weed, who was inspired to learn
and teach self defense after a close friend was fatally attacked. She
has a cool t-shirt, too.
Surely you've seen these fabulous cards! IFLAG favorites include the
"Assess Your Weapons" and "You Don't Have To Be A Judo Master To Fight"
