This one is for my API sistas. There’s been a series of assaults on Bay Area women in recent months. What the media has failed to mention is that all of the women targeted are Asian American. Good thing then that the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF for short) is putting on an API Hate Crimes and Self-Defense Workshop next Monday. NAPAWF’s Bay Area chapter co-chair, Jenny Huang, will be spittin knowledge about the issue for the first half of the session. Later, local martial arts instructor Mateo Reyes will be showing folks how to take names and kick some rapist ass. I’ve known Mateo my whole life so I’ve seen how he used to whup kids’ asses in karate classes back in the day and he’s only gotten better with time.
