Self Defense Tips Any Woman Can Follow

It is an uncertain world we live in. It seems that people are going crazy. It is that reason that women need to make sure that they can protect themselves. Predators consider women to be weaker than their male counterparts and if they find one alone they may try to take advantage of that situation. Here are some self defenses tips for women that any woman can follow.

The first is one that you have probably heard often, but that is because it is important. You must be aware of your surroundings. When you step out of a door, or before you get out of a car, survey your surroundings, know where you can go for help if needed. This is important. If you were to not notice something or someone you need to know where you can get help from.

You also need to know how to keep your body language strong. If you keep your head up and walk with confidence you will be less likely to be targeted. Predators like to target women who look weaker. Those who walk with less confidence look weaker and therefore looks like an easier target. So no matter how you are feeling on any given day, keep your head up and your body language strong.

A woman’s intuition is a powerful thing. Always trust your instincts. If you sense danger, then there is probably a good reason for that and you should avoid that situation if at all possible. If it is not possible to avoid the situation find out if there is someone who can walk you to your car, such as a security guard or a male employee of wherever you are. If not make sure you have your phone out and ready to use. This will let any potential predator know that if they try something you are ready to call for help.

If someone does try to grab you your first instinct may be to yell for help. You will need to retrain your brain. Sadly most people do not respond to people’s call for help either because they do not want to get involved or they do not want to end up getting hurt too. Instead try yelling out for someone to call 911 for you. This is more likely to get help. If someone hears it they may call, but do not expect that they will intervene. This may or may not be enough for the predator to leave you alone, but at least the police will be one their way.

If that is not enough for them to leave you alone then you should be aware of the most sensitive areas on a man’s body. The first and most obvious spot is the groin. Hitting a man there will no doubt get a reaction of pain on their part. Another sensitive area is their eyes, if you can poke them in the eyes this will cause pain and can make it so they cannot see for a moment while you run. The throat is another sensitive area. If you are able to punch them in the throat do it. The last sensitive area is behind the knee. If you are able to kick them behind the knee it will knock them down onto that knee giving you a chance to flee.

You can never be too careful these days. Long gone are the days where you did not have to worry about strangers attacking you everywhere you go. Things are not as simple as they once were. This is why women must be prepared to protect themselves. Knowing these self defense tips will help any woman to do just that.
