Ladies have real GUTS. Prepare yourself, to defend yourself.

Because I was in the martial arts for so many years, I forget

that many people do not know simple self-defense rules to

save their life.  This post is not meant to display impressive

writing skills but to be a simple, concise help to ladies in making

sure they can save their own life against an attacker.  To me, most

of these are common sense. But people don’t seem to use a lot of

that when their life is on the line. So here are some definite things

that will help you ladies, if you are in danger.

1. The oldest defense axiom is true. Avoid dark places alone at


2. If you must go into a potentially compromising situation take

a friend.

3. Always carry your car keys in your hand, when leaving a

building. Keep the longest, strongest key pointing out from

between your pointing and middle finger. Excellent tool to

blind an assailant with a quick jab to the eyes.

4- If you can not get away from someone going to your car and

it seems that you will not get to your car. Crawl under a car &

yell like crazy. It is nearly impossible for an assailant to get to

you while you are kicking, jabbing and poking while he tries

to get under the car to you.

5- Forget mace. Get a stun gun (if legal where you are). Yes they

work and will disable even the biggest, meanest opponent

long enough for you to get away.

6- There’s a key. Run away. Best way to avoid injury is not to

be there.

7- If in your car and you believe you are being followed; call

911, describe the car and drive to the police department.

8- Get a friend. Practice swift disabling strikes to the following

targets. Eyes, throat, groin & knees. Can’t see, can’t fight.

Can’t breathe, can’t fight. Can’t stand up, can’t fight. Can’t

walk, can’t catch you. Do not practice any more than

attacks to these four areas.

9- Practice impacting a foam or bag. Don’t let the moment of

need be the first time you have really hit something.

other target.

10- Last but not least. Plan in advance. We have fire alarms in our

homes, air bags on our cars. And yet many people fail to plan

for their own defense. Work on your emergency defense plan.

Find a good self defense class and take it. You do not need

full blown karate and unless you train for a long time this can

confuse you more than it helps you. Find a short, condensed

class for which the only purpose is self-defense against an


Refuse to be Used. Prepare yourself, to defend yourself.
