Bass Trained in the Art of Martial Lawmaking

Brian Cahn/Zuma Press
Rep. Karen Bass has attained the level of brown belt in tae kwon do and hapkido, motivated in part by a desire to find confidence and a sense of security.

For Bass, who no longer regularly studies martial arts, the lessons remain easily applicable to the political realm.

“For me, the lesson learned from that is that I can have political differences, but I do not have to personalize,” she said. “I can be opposed to you, and I don’t have to yell and scream.”
