I booked myself and my niece (19) to go on a female self defence course which cost more money than I was happy to pay but I had this weird feeling something would happen to one of us if we never went to it.
The class is called Stilettos and Self Defence taken by a woman called Lauren Reid, Im not sure how popular it is in other places however everybody wears heels as that is what you'll likely be wearing if attacked.
The class needed a male dummy to work on so I asked my nephew (18) and he agreed.
Anyway we where doing different scenarios which involve
certain moves to fend off an attacker coming from behind, coming from the side ect.
All the other women (there was maybe 15) including me and my niece where standing whilst the self defence instructor ran through a few moves on my nephew, she explained that an excellent way to stop an attacker coming from the front is to kick or knee to the groin.
In saying this she kicked my nephew twice in the crotch area very hard and very fast, she then grabbed his shoulders and kneed him twice straight up between his legs.
Everyone cheered, it looked so bad he lifted of the ground with each hit.
My nephew put his hands to his groin and had his mouth wide open, he went really pale and collapsed down to the fetal position. Everyone including the instructor laughed thinking he was either joking or only slightly hurt, even I had a giggle.
He stayed there not moving and groaning a little, this is when the instructor realized he wasn't wearing his cup! He had been told to put it on but obviously had not.
There was still a few giggles when everyone realized he had been kneed and kicked in the groin for real.
He couldn't walk or stand so we lay him down in the back of the car and myself, my niece and the instructor Lauren took him to the hospital. On the way to the hospital he was still immobile and really pale, he threw up in the back of the car too. We waited for him in the waiting room.
We found out that she had kicked and kneed him so hard that both his testes had swelled up to 3x their normal size and he had severe bruising around the penis and scrotum.
I am still at the hospital now waiting on him and have been here for the last 7 hours :(
