Seatle woman fighting fear with elbows and fists

SEATTLE, Wash. -- "More than a hundred women punched and kicked off a self-defense workshop called "Fight The Fear," a campaign created in honor of a Seattle woman who lost her life last year."

"Bam! Right to the head," organizer Melinda Johnson showed as she demonstrated techniques with her elbow. Johnson, a martial arts instructor and one of the event organizers, also told participants to yell "No!" or "Stop!" or anything that came to mind."

"Whatever you want to say," she told the crowd. "The point is your bringing out your voice." Full story at King5.com
