What is Women’s Self-Defense?
Self-defense is a set of awareness, assertiveness, verbal confrontation skills, safety strategies, and physical techniques that enable someone to successfully escape, resist, and survive violent attacks. A good self-defense course provides psychological awareness and verbal skills, not just physical training.
Here are a few simple tips and techniques that can help you escape or survive your attack.
Show that you’re aware: Potential assailants prefer women that seem distracted or preoccupied. If you look assertive and aware, they might never initiate the assault.
Call for help: Many women get confused and don’t know what to scream. Shouting ‘fire’ for instance, can be better and more attention grabbing than simply yelling ‘help’.
Know the weak points of the body: If you do find yourselves in a physical confrontation, you can scratch, pull, hit or grab, as you aim directly to one of the five weak spots: Eyes, nose, neck, knees and groin!
Take an opportunity to run: If you’ve identified a good time to run away from the confrontation, do it.
Listen: Don’t listen to music while walking through a neighborhood or park. You should be aware of your surroundings and be able to hear your attackers coming.
Remain calm: The worst thing is to panic.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]
