Getting Defensive

Publication: Eighteen Bridges

For our spring 2017 issue, Eighteen Bridges magazine asked Kate Black to take a women-only class at a Vancouver boxing gym to learn how to defend herself. OK, she said. But why, she asked, was the onus on her to avoid becoming a victim? Shouldn’t we focus on creating a culture that doesn’t produce predatory men? In “Getting Defensive,” Kate finds out if she likes roughhousing and, more important, whether she can teach her inner theorist to make a fist.
