There are two classes are being held in the same room in a multi-
tenant building in Tokyo, one the same day.
Enomoto (35), a former police officer, who is holding a class which teaches women how to protect themselves from molesters and muggers, called “Enomoto Self-Defense Class”,
Tachibana (40), a former CA, who is holding a class which teaches approach techniques to men who are passive in romance, called “Mrs Tachibana’s Love Learning Class”.
One day, Maiko Sakurai (20) tries out the “Enomoto Self-Defense Class” and decides to officially join, as she has long felt the necessity for women to become physically independent.
On the other hand, Masaru Shimoda (28), who has been attending the “Mrs Tachibana’s Love learning Class” for three years.

It is something that the man had no choice but to do.
