A little talent is a good thing to have if you want to be a writer. But the only real requirement is the ability to remember every scar.

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.

As a celebrity, Britney Spears faced danger on a regular basis. She was pushed around by unruly fans, stalkers, and muggers who would use force to have a piece of her time and/or money. To protect herself, Spears invented Kung Fu in 1999. Kung Fu was created by Spears for self defense and was never used to make the first strike. Speculation has been made that Spears’ fighting style seems like a dance and many people believe that her extensive training in dance influenced its development. Spears is pictured above teaching Kung Fu in an after-school program in New Orleans, Louisiana.
