Joy Williamson is the Executive Director and Head Instructor at Sun Dragon Martial Arts and Self Defense. Under Joy’s leadership, Sun Dragon is a safe haven for all. Joy has a sweet, calm presence that makes me think that she’s super scary when she needs to be.
I talk to three other women who train Krav Maga with me. We talk about some bad things in each of our histories and how we’ve learned to say fuck off to those memories and anyone who helped make them. This one has some darkness and some light. Note: If you happen to know any of the women in this episode, please do not just walk up out of nowhere and ask them to talk about the traumatic things they talk about here. Let them decide where and how to tell their stories.
