"You fight like a girl!" would be considered a compliment at Paulsen's Family Martial Arts. In fact, being able to fight like a girl is the main goal of aptly named Fight Like a Girl self-defense classes, taught by the certified instructor, Diane Paulsen. But self-defense classes represent just a small portion of the sparring techniques taught at Paulsen's—go jiu bujitsu, a hybrid martial art, is at its core. A blend of karate, judo, and jujitsu, the MMA method teaches every aspect of combat, from strikes and kicks to traps and locks.
