  1. Well done Anita, ist time am hearing an Ismaili whose into Martial Arts. Have always loved that sport, after i saw
    the late Bruce Lee’s movies eons ago. Keep it up, women need to learn how to defend themselves in this evil world, where they are molested at all ages and feel terrible for the younger girls under ten. Best wishes.
