Self Defense-Assault Prevention Tips

I’d like to pass on some observations I’ve made in all my years on this planet. First of all, women are the targets of violence of all kinds in 90% of the cases. All you have to do is look at a police blotter to verify this observation.

Secondly the bad guys-the guys that do the crime-are lazy and often two or three french fries short of a happy meal-not exactly the sharpest knives in the drawer if you know what I mean.

Having said that, victims fall into traps of doing things on a routine basis that lead to establishing habits which makes for easy assaults.

For example, an inordinate number of assaults happen in grocery store or mall parking lots. The reason? Women who do the shopping are frequently and easily distracted by talking on a cell phone, by handling the kids, by pushing the grocery cart. So they don’t have as much time as they should to pay attentions to their surroundings which makes for an easy target.

Here are some other tips to help prevent assaults.

1. In an office situation take the elevator instead of the stairs. The stairs frequently are not well lit and provide good places for an assault.

2. If you are confronted with an assailant, believe it or not, the best thing you can do is take off. Only 2% of all assailants are armed. If he should happen to shoot, chances are he will miss.

3. If an assailant gets too close try showing him your self defense weapon. A charging stun gun displays an intimidating sight and sound show that frequently is enough to scare an assailant away.

4. Always carry a SELF DEFENSE PRODUCT like a stun gun or a pepper spray. Some stun guns have loud personal alarms.
