SELF DEFENSE FOR WOMEN
Self defense is a strategy or way you use to prevent yourself from harm. Don’t watch some you tube videos and expect your own self to carry out those moves out of nowhere.
It is really hard for many women to roam around freely without having a little fear in them. A stranger just standing near you will bring thousands of thoughts in your mind.
Here are few tips for self defense
1. Be aware of your surroundings
Walking alone every night on the same road and expecting nothing to happen?
You must make sure you are taking a safe route with many people around you, leave your phone and other things which distract you and concentrate more on the people. Check if someone is following you or not. If they are, go to a store near you and call someone for help.
2. Be car smart
Many attackers plan their attack near parking lot. Unlock the car when you are near or else it gives an opportunity to the attacker to get inside the car without you noticing. You can use your key as a weapon by poking in their eyes if the attack happens. Lastly, if you coming out of a party alone, ask someone to drop you till your car, and tell them to wait till you leave.
3. Know his weakness
There are few parts in human body, if you attack with force can cause great damage.
Attack his eyes with your fingers,
Punch hard on the throat,
Hit him on his private part with force,
Use your elbow to break his nose,
Go for his knee.
When I say weapons! Don’t think Guns. There are many other weapons you can carry with you.
Use pepper spray, best to keep it in your pockets as the attacker won’t wait till you take it out from your purse.
Carry a pen knife, one side you can use it as a pen and the other side as a knife.
Use stun gun and Taser, both are used for electric shock but taser is much more useful as you don’t need to come in direct contact with the attacker.
5. Take self defense training
Learning self defense may not completely erase the fear in you but will definitely reduce it. Remember! practice makes it perfect.
For instance, before the training you did not know how to punch and what body parts to punch in order to knock out an opponent. But after taking self defense training you know exactly what to do in order to knock out someone.
But! when i say take self defense training i don’t mean learning from few videos on YouTube and trying to do them yourself. Some YouTube videos are good and some are not but for both you need practice and training.
Or watch it directly on YouTube
6. Stay fit and run
Sometimes the only option you have is to run away from the attackers. It’s not a must you will be attacked by only one person, sometimes they attack in group. The best way to escape is to run faster than the attackers.
Scream as louder as you can. Scream to seek help. Scream to gather people around you. This might scare the attacker and there are high chances of him running away.
Use a word like “FIRE” or something else which can gather people easily. Because many people will come for help hearing there is fire around and less people will come for help hearing you screaming for help, as they don’t want themselves in trouble.
