Self-Defense Tips For Women-Part One; Safety Tip Of The Week
It is a well established fact that women are the targets of violence in nine out 10 cases-everything from assaults, rapes, domestic violence. Even in home invasions, women are the preferred targets.
So it makes sense for women to be more aware of that fact so they can learn how to defend themselves a little bit better. Here are some self-defense tips for women that may end up saving their lives. But guys, you should take a look at these too and pass them along to all the women in your life.
There a lot of tips to share so we split them up into several parts. Here is part one.
Develop a plan to improve your self defense. That includes dry runs on what you will do in case of an emergency.
Walk with a sense of self-confidence. Of course back it up with some self-defense training. Having a sense of self-confidence shows through.
Use restraint and common sense. Don’t get baited into a fight. It takes two to tango. It’s easier to walk away with your head on.
Keep to well lit areas and go with a friend. Avoid dangerous parts of town like the plague.
Once you learn self-defense skills, practice them until they become second nature. They will last you a lifetime but only a few practice them.
Develop a sense of awareness. Be aware of where you are and who is around you.
Never act like an easy target. Don’t look like a victim. Someone who is walking with her head down or talking on a cell phone makes for easy pickings for the bad guys.
Never hitchhike. Walk, take a taxi, use a bus but never hitchhike.
Don’t be paranoid. Just beware and aware that there are threats around you.
Always keep some self defense products with you like a stun gun or a pepper spray or both-just in case.
We always recommend a Keychain Pepper Spray because it’s with you all the time. The Guard Dog model shown here is one of our most popular models mostly because it has good range and sells for $4.95.
