Seven Self-Defense moves for Women
- Memorize the Vulnerable places
It doesn’t matter how big your attacker is because you can beat anyone if you know where the most vulnerable spots are the main ones are eyes, nose, ears, throat, chest, knees ankles and groin eyes everybody will agree that if an attacker can’t see you you’ll be much harder to grab what is more a poke or jab to the eyes is extremely painful this will distract an aggressor enough for you to run away knows this is a sensitive area with a lot of nerve endings you can use the heel of your hand to strike an assailants nose it’ll cause enough pain if not to stop an attacker then to win you at least sometimes you escape ears if you find yourself in the position when the only body part of your attacker you can reach is his ear don’t hold back show him the power of an angry female a human ear has numerous nerve endings in quite a small area so tugging on the ear scratching it or even biting it will cause much pain and you’ll be able to run away knees you know knees Bend only one way besides they are sensitive to pain so a good kick to the kneecap can shock an assailant if you’re lucky you can even topple ankles ankles are quite fragile and sensitive to pain you can slam your fun and attackers ankle or kick it hard it may knock a person off balance chest there is an impressive bundle of nerves situated right behind the stomach it’s called the solar plexus if you manage to punch an aggressor correctly aiming at the solar plexus this will knock the breath out of him remember to move all your body forward when you hit otherwise this won’t work you can attack in any way you want but to be on the safe side you need to remember that the most effective moves are aimed at these areas.
- The Most Effective Moves
One of the best moves that will make any giant whimper or drop to his knees is catching the wrist grab his little finger and his ring finger with one hand and his middle finger and index with the other pull the fingers in the opposite directions at the same time bending the wrist away from yourself if you can’t grab your opponent’s hand hit him with a fist or with a finger between the collarbones or into his Adam’s apple this will allow you to disorient your opponent so that it’ll take him a long time to come back to his senses however do this only in case of extreme danger for example if he’s choking you as hitting the throat can seriously injure or even kill a person the most obvious area for an attack is the groin all self-defense courses advise aiming for this area a simple kick doesn’t need explaining hitting this area will paralyze an attacker and you’ll have just enough time to escape.
- If you were grabbed from the front
If you were grabbed from the front and you can’t lift your hands move your hands forward and make a fist in front of your pelvis this will create enough room between you and the attacker then hit the attackers nose with your forehead this will make him move away from you now hit him in the groin with your knee in cases where there’s still some room between you and the aggressor there’s a way you can protect yourself using your palm straighten your left arm and hid the attacker on the chin and nose with your right arm then hit him in the groin this way the attacker will be disoriented for a long time and he won’t be able to move.
- How to free your hands
You can easily escape a stronghold if you remember the rule of thumb: rotate your arm to the side of the attacker’s thumb if he’s holding your arm tightly, rotate your wrist towards the thumb when your arm is under the attackers pull your arm as strongly as you can.
- If you were grabbed from behind
attackers often come from the back because this is the easiest way to hold the victims arms so that they can’t move them to set yourself free quickly bend back and try to hit the attacker with the back of your head it’s ok if you can’t do it. The point is to make the attacker put one of his legs forward now quickly bend down grab his leg and get up pulling it with you the attacker will lose balance.
- If you were approached and grabbed from side
Hit the attackers temple jaw or nose with an arched move after this the attacker will take a few steps back now hit him in the belly or chest elbow hits are so strong that they will disorient any opponent.
- If you were pushed against the wall
It happens very often that attackers try to corner their victims or push them against the wall in this situation it’s necessary to remember the most vulnerable places and hit one of them depending on your position if both of the attackers arms are up then straighten your palm and hit him in the armpit if one of his arms is down there’s a chance you can hit the opponent in the chest neck or jaw but one of the most effective and powerful hits is a hit with your head squat a little to be lower than the opponent then quickly jump up and hit him in the jaw with your forehead this move will instantly disorient the attacker and give you a chance to escape.
- If you do happen to find yourself in a threatening situation remember the vulnerable areas however most of the dangerous situations can be avoided
- Turn off your iPhone or iPod when you’re in the street.
- Don’t allow strangers or anybody with a hostile or unfriendly attitude to approach you closer than. Let’s say, five feet
- Make it a habit to always watch your food and drinks when eating out.
- If you have long hair, avoid wearing it in a ponytail.
- Try to make an impression of a confident person: keep your back straight and your head up if you feel that a situation can spin out of control. Scream yelling is a perfect defense mechanism. You break the role of a victim, attract attention and distract an aggressor. Remember that shouting fire is more effective.
