More Self Defense Tips For Women-Safety Tip Of The Week

This is the third in a series of tips for women for their self defense. You can read the others HERE and HERE

Unfortunately women have to go thru life wondering when they might be attacked-NOT IF-WHEN! Because women are attacked by at least a nine to one margin over men.

We are trying to increase awareness about what is a real problem: assaults of any kind on women. Here are some more self defense tips that could save their lives.

REACT QUICKLY. Fact of the matter is that an assault situation demands very quick reaction time. The old expression “he who hesitates is lost” is just about right on target. This is where practicing comes in handy. A reflex reaction vs. “gee where’s my pepper spray?” will save the day and you.

FIGHT BACK! Your life may be at stake. Don’t just sit there fight back with everything you have. And this is not a garden party FIGHT DIRTY. Gouge eyes, kick private parts, scream, whatever you have to do. Most assailants are not expecting a fight. Among other things it will get you time which is in your distinct favor.

SURPRISE. The bad guys use it all the time in their assaults on unsuspecting women. Turn the tables on them and surprise them by using a disguised self defense weapon like a pepper spray or stun gun.

SURVIVE AND ESCAPE. Your first priority is to survive followed closely by escaping.

WEAPON OF AVAILABILITY. Use whatever you can get your hands on. A pen, keys, or anything nearby that is harder than your hand.

PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!!! Find a friend and go thru scenarios that may occur. When they do happen you’ll be ready.

Carry some self defense products like stun guns and/or PEPPER SPRAYS. Their purpose is to allow you time to escape. They will give you from 5-45 minutes to escape to get help or just escape and survive.

Above all use your head a.k.a. common sense.
