'Fighting for your life' self-defense

Police are still investigating unsolved sexual assaults in North Austin. One local gym specializes in 'Fighting for you life', self-defense lessons for women.

John Ramseier owns John's Gym in North West Austin.  He and his girlfriend Jasmine teach women's self-defense classes.

According to Ramseier, “We find private lessons a lot better because everyone has a different needs.  Some people come in with pre-existing situation where they have a stalker.  They have someone just kind of bothering them.”

Ramseier says many attacks come from behind. He tells his pupils to bend their knees because it makes it harder for the attacker to pull them back.

Casey Claiborne was at John’s Gym earlier today.  Watch as Jasmine and John show Casey their self-defense techniques.
