Please join us August 19th for


Allison Campolo

Have you ever wondered what “fight like a girl” means (besides being obnoxious) and how it can be a good thing? Allison Campolo, martial artist, will be at the August meeting to enlighten you. Allison will give you the answers to the questions you had, and maybe didn’t even know you were dying to find out:

-what most writers get wrong when writing fight scenes;

-what the difference in the sexes means when fighting;

-involuntary reactions to hits in certain locations;

-what someone feels when they get hit versus what fighters feel when they get hit;

-how training matters.

And not just answers to these questions —Allison's going to show us some basic moves to break holds, and provide self defense for our heroines. Be sure to bring your notepads so you can get the details right in your next MS!


Hope to see you there!

Come to the meeting prepared to have a good time!

Doors open at 10:00.
