Self-Defense Tips For Women-Part 2: Safety Tip Of The Week
Last week we did part one of self defense tips for women. As we discussed women consistently outdo men as the targets of violence by a 9 to 1 margin. So it is no wonder that self-defense companies including Taser International target women for their products. There are more pink pepper sprays, stun guns and tasers on the market today than there have ever been.
Here is part two of self-defense tips for women.
Body language is important in several aspects of life. When it comes to defending yourself, body language that bubbles over with self-confidence is less likely to be attacked than one that is not.
Develop a survivor mentality. Being aware that you’re a potential target for most your life is a good start.
If you’re attacked, simultaneously reach for your self-defense product and start screaming your head off. You don’t get points for style. So biting, scratching and kicking all count. It is your life we’re talking about here. There is no such thing as fighting dirty: you do what you have to do.
Use anything you can get your hands on if you don’t have a self-defense weapon such as a ball point pen, keys, a can of hairspray, fingernails-anything that might cause damage.
Your priorities are to survive an encounter with the assailant and escape.
Women are blessed with much better instincts than men. Trust those instincts! When the hair on the back of your neck starts to tingle be ready to react.
In a self-defense situation, often how quickly you react will determine the outcome.
Learn some basic points on the body that will get a quick submission from an assailant. Eye gouges, groin kicks, a hard punch to the ear, the palm of the hand to the base of the nose will all get you out of trouble quickly.
Having a self-defense product like stun gun or pepper spray is not enough. You need to know how to use it and practice using it so that when the time comes, and it will come, using it becomes second nature.
Always keep some Self-Defense Products with you like a stun gun or a pepper spray or both-just in case.
