"Avital Zeisler, a former ballerina, demonstrated a kick during a private self-defense session with a student. At 19, Avital was sexually assaulted by her then-boyfriend, after which she went through a debilitating depression. Now, at 26, she is a hand-to-hand combat expert who has trained members of the military and law enforcement. One of her specialities: #selfdefense in #heels, the idea being that women should learn to defend themselves, no matter what they're wearing. "When I teach self-defense, I want to make sure it's authentic to women," Avital said. Follow @dina_litovsky to see more of her photos." By nytimes on Instagram.
