066 ProArms BroadCast meets the Practical Defense Podcast

Alex Haddox and Gail interview Martial Arts Champion Graciela Casillas-Tortorelli. Graciela is living proof that strength and femininity are not mutually exclusive attributes. The holder of world championships in multiple fighting forms, from boxing to kick-boxing, Graciela discusses her famous incident on the Pacific Coast Highway when a rapist became a classic example of what Mas Ayoob calls “cause of death: sudden and acute failure of the victim selection process.” Listen to a true role model fighting female!

Then we talk about  her newest career, since she “retired” (as if anyone who works so hard can be considered “retired”), as editor of American Cop Magazine.
