When it comes to women’s self defense, I have always preached a well-rounded approach in developing self defense strategy. Knowing how to use some basic self-defense techniques, as well as learning how to use and carrying different self defense products should be a foundation for a good self defense program.
Unfortunately, women are targets 9/10 times when it comes to assaults. They are victims in domestic violence cases to street assaults, from rapes to home invasions nine times more often than men. So it is especially important for women to develop a self defense strategy. Here are some good building blocks for that strategy in three easy steps.
1.Learn self-defense techniques. This is the foundation for any good self defense strategy. Everything from basic self-defense techniques to more advanced courses can be learned in the comfort of your own home by world-class instructors on a wide variety of self defense training DVDs. There is even a course taught by Delta Force and Navy Seal personnel. Not only is this a great way to learn some practical tools for your self defense, but it is also a great way to bond as a family and teach your kids the same techniques.
2.Self Defense Products. Learning how to use and carrying self-defense items like pepper sprays, stun guns and tasers are the next logical step in your self defense strategy. I always advise women especially to carry a stun gun and a pepper spray. Learn how to use them and practice how to use them. That way when the time comes you will have a reflexive action. Those few seconds, could save your life.
3.Practice. If you don’t practice and become proficient in your self defense techniques and using your self defense weapons you will lose the edge you need to reflexively react in a threatening situation.
If you think crime can only happen to the other guy you are wrong. The “other guy” is thinking the same thing and to him you are that “other guy”. There is a reason why they call it self defense.
