New martial arts school teaches women self-defense for free

A new martial arts school in Williamsburg is teaching women the tools they need to defend themselves.



Unlimited Martial Arts Academy on Meeker Street offered a free self-defense class for women.



Attendees learned some moves along with information - like how jabbing an assailant in the eye can cause pain with the same amount of force a person uses to change the channel.



Instructor Kristen Cabildo says she hopes to empower women to put up a fight if necessary.
