The surge of anti-Asian attacks across the country are largely targeting women and the elderly.  

Now, many in the AAPI community are making sure they can fight back and defend themselves if they’re attacked. 

A former MMA champion, Marcus Kowal is helping the cause by teaching classes so AAPI seniors feel protected.  They’re learning to punch and kick to fend off attackers and more practical ways to get out of a chokehold or fight back if someone tries a bear hug assault.
