Self Defense Tips For Women-Safety Tip Of The Week

Guys this is for you too. Read and share with the women in your lives.

Women are attacked by a margin of almost nine to one more than men. The reasons seem obvious. The ways to defend against these attacks are not always so obvious. Here are some tips on how to defend against attacks on women.

Let’s start with the more obvious.

1. DON’T LOOK LIKE A VICTIM. Let’s face it. Most guys who assault women are not all that smart but they are not stupid either. They have developed in their own mind a profile of what they are looking for in a victim. Someone who is walking with their head down and an uncertain gait presents an easy target.

2. USE COMMON SENSE. Everyone has choices on where they go and how they get there. Keep to well lit areas, go with a buddy, avoid dangerous areas and USE YOUR HEAD!

3. TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS. Women especially are blessed with an uncanny knack for sensing things. They should use and trust that instinct. When you get a shiver down your spine be ready to react.

4. GET A SURVIVOR MINDSET. This starts with developing an awareness of your surroundings and not becoming paranoid but aware of the facts that women are potential targets all their lives. Practice either for real with a friend or in your mind what you would do in an emergency. Practicing develops confidence which overcomes fear.

Remember this in an assault situation-your priorities are survival and escape. You owe it to yourself and your loved ones who rely on you to do everything you can to get away as quickly as you can and survive a possibly life threatening situation. You don’t get points for style.
