Keeping calm and vigilant

This weekend, starting this evening, our town will have its local regatta. One of the downsides of leaving by the Thames. Which means a lot of people in fancy suits and dresses, from teenagers to elderly, will end up very, very drunk. I have seen it, I even nicknamed it Sodom and Regatta. There will be lots of police presence, and I know cops can be heavy handed if a drunkard becomes too loud or worse aggressive. Nevertheless, I will remain vigilant and will keep in mind at all time my old Krav Maga training. I say old but it does not date back from so long ago. In times like this, I am grateful for knowing this skill, even though I am still a novice. My loved ones and myself are safer for it.

I did a Krav Maga course a while back, but could never remember the moves! I don't have a physical memory (I have the same problem with dance routines. Luckily I don't need to do dance routines for work, and hopefully will never need to use Krav Maga!)
