Self-defense class enrollment soared after Seattle woman Kelly Herron used techniques she learned in a self-defense class to fight off an attacker in a public restroom. The woman was taught to "be loud and fight like a savage" in her course and in real life, it worked. Herron was able to defeat her attacker and lock him in the bathroom until police came to arrest him. Since the attack, searches for the self-defence class Herron took have increased ten-fold.
Herron's attacker hid in a bathroom stall until she entered, threw her to the ground and attempted to assault her. Even with the element of surprise, Herron was able to use the skills she learned to defeat her attacker. His mugshot showed heavy bruising and a large bandage over his eye, a testament to the effectiveness of the skills she learned in class.
