Recognizing this as a problem, skilled self-defense instructor Kerry Kollmar and his company, Martial Hearts, Inc., is trying to remedy the situation. Author of "Safe Without Sight," Kollmar routinely teaches groups of visually impaired men and women self-defense tactics.

He teaches his students to first find what he calls "the universal reference point" by having them grab the left shoulder of a practice dummy. By doing that, he says, an individual can find out how tall the attacker is and where their eyes are, giving them the ability to successfully fight back if need be.
With muggings and home invasions becoming more prevalent in the Atlanta area, the local Center for the Visually Impaired decided to bring back the two week course for those interested in taking it. The Vice President of Programs at the center strongly believes in the program. "After the course," he says, "they feel confident that can deal with whatever happens."
Before the course is over, each student is put to the test, as their instructor, Kollmar, puts on a padded suit and sees if they can apply what they've learned. Since he is adequately protected, he encourages them to hit as hard as they would if they were attacked in the real world so that they can get a clear sense of what their abilities are.
One student remarked, "Your adrenaline gets pumping. It's a good feeling. Yes, I guess I do feel empowered."
As Kollmar takes hit after hit from his determined students, he never lacks a sense of humor. A well place shot to the groin may illicit silence from students who are unsure about his condition.
