Model Mugging is a form of self-defense training that uses padded trainers or Model Muggers to simulate assaults. It was founded by noted martial artist, Matt Thomas, co-author of the book Defend Yourself!: Every Woman's Guide to Safeguarding Her Life Its inspiration was the 1971 rape and beating of a karate black belt.[1][2] Model Mugging was originally a self-defense program designed for the specific needs of women.
