Tenleytown Knockout: Self-defense For Communities

Residents of Tenleytown have perfected a self-defense technique to fight development and re-development proposals.

"Over the past 30 years, these and other organizations have collectively invented a nearly insurmountable self-defense technique: the Tenleytown Knockout. Whether it's a residential development or a retail outlet, a public project or private enterprise, if neighborhood animus reaches critical mass, the Knockout can't be far behind."
