Criptaedo – How People With Disabilities Fight Back!

I was recently asked to teach a self-defense class for women with disabilities. This was a new opportunity for me and I didn’t know what to expect, but I was told mostly I would be talking about awareness and we wouldn’t do as many moves. In the weeks leading up to my class I found quite a few self-defense resources for people with disabilities.

Criptaedo is a form of martial arts create by a man living with Spina bifida and is geared towards those who are in wheelchairs or use crutches and canes for mobility.

He has two videos I really liked. The first is defending an attack while in a wheelchair or on crutches.

His second video shows how to escape a knife attack:
