Episode Summary

EDIT
Black Belt Mama
AIRED:
Naomi returns from her self-defense class and shows the family what she learned. Fran and Sonja are impressed with what Naomi does and says and decide to join. Mama doesn't want to go though and decides to go to her Bingo game. But that night, Mama returns home to Vint and Buzz, holding only her purse strap. She is trembling and reveals she was mugged at the bus stop. After describing him and calling the police, Mama decides to join Naomi, Fran, and Sonja at the Karate class. Mama tells the class about what happened, but her family starts putting the blame on her. Mama also has trouble doing the stretching exercises before they learn any moves. After those, Chuck, the instructor, tells Mama she'll work with the star pupil of the class, who happens to be Naomi. Mama doesn't enjoy working with her, but does do well in the class. A few days later, Mama is waiting at the bus stop with an elderly lady and tells her things she learned at her self-defense class. Soon, the same mugger attacks Mama again, and after a challenge, she gives her purse away, and before he leaves, she tells the guy to take the other woman's purse. As his back is turned, she hits him with the iron she just bought. The family celebrates Mama's accomplishment when the story is printed in the paper.moreless
