Functional Girl hosting ‘warrior princess’ self-defense workshop


Lifestyles guru and San Marcos Mercury columnist CJ Legare is hosting a free women’s self-defense workshop on Saturday along with the Kyle Police Department and Dojo Kyle.

The workshop is 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 13 at Dojo Kyle, 23703 Interstate 35, Suite 103 in Kyle. Register online for the workshop here.

We understand that personal safety is a critical issue facing women globally and our goal is to empower women with tools that will decrease their odds of victimization.” said Kyle resident CJ Legare, who founded the Functional Girl brand.

The workshop will include demonstration and practice of basic self-defense techniques from instructors at Dojo Kyle, which teaches the martial art Jiu Jitsu.

“Jiu-Jitsu is the perfect self-defense art for women because it utilizes leverage, timing and technique; making it possible for a smaller person to overcome a larger opponent,” said Will Caldwell, the company’s co-owner.
