A few tips for you to remember…

Priority Number One: Prevention

There are several useful basic self-defense techniques and tips that can be utilized and taught with little to no effort. However, the foremost care should first be given to avoid placing yourself in vulnerable situations before considering physical action.

Most self-defense experts will tell you that prevention should always be the first priority when thinking of self-defense. It is crucial to avoid placing yourself in a position where you can be easily victimized. So here are some of the ways that this can be accomplished so that your need to use physical self-defense tactics can be minimized:

  • Before approaching your vehicle in a parking area, take note of your surroundings, have keys in hand, and try not to be alone.
  • Don’t wear or carry expensive items when walking around by yourself. This includes jewelry, watches, handbags, and laptops to name a few.
  • Don’t walk around in dark and sparsely populated areas by yourself.
  • Trust your instincts. If something doesn’t look or feel right, there is a good chance it isn’t.
  • Don’t establish routines. Walking the same route home from work every evening establishes an easily identifiable pattern that allows others to plan an assault.
  • Don’t assume only females are victims of random assaults. Men are robbed just as easily and should take these same precautions.

Basic Self-Defense

Now that you know what you can do to minimize your chance of ending up in situations that require using self-defense tactics, let’s look at what you can do when your best efforts to prevent being victimized fail. Remember that most basic self-defense techniques are easy to learn and require very little effort.

Use Actions and Words

  • Make noise – don’t be the silent victim, as silence can in fact be deadly. Yell, scream, do what you have to do to get attention. There is a good chance the perpetrator will be alarmed and flee.
  • Throw your keys – if someone is demanding that you enter your vehicle and drive away with them, throw your car keys in the opposite direction and run. It’s likely the criminal will turn to retrieve the keys rather than pursue you.
  • Give them what they want – if someone is demanding your purse or wallet, now is not the time to refuse. Simply give them what they want and hope they will retreat.

There’s no lemon too sour that you can’t make something that at least resembles lemonade. And it better taste as good or better. Your challenges in life are what should make you to show up. Be creatively and beautifully you…
