Self-Defense Techniques For Women 
  • How often have you stomached the rude shock of a creep trying to paw you all over and silently swallowed the shame in disgust? If you have survived one such touché but have been mortified enough to voice a protest, it’s time you braved an action against it! Doesn’t matter if you are stranded in a crowded bus or trailing you way through a straggling mob, an opprobrious touch on your body is a no-no! The next time you feel your next seat neighbor or the guy standing next to you trying to get all up-close-and-pushy, just lift your heels high and stamp hard on his foot. This way he would get the message straight and clear, in the high-heeled’ way of course!
  • It’s time women stopped being so credulous to abuse in public places and personal sphere and put up a fight against manhandling and sexual tirade. Your honor is your biggest asset, never compromise on it! Next time a pervert tries to play gross with you, turn around and gouge your fingers into his eyes and see him retreat in regret. The biggest advantage of this defense trick is that it causes no apparent injury and leaves your opponent with a blur, sore vision and you with a plenty of time to run for your life!
  • You are walking down a dark alley or just jumped into your high-rise apartment lift when a crook turns out of the blue and scares the senses out of you. What do you do—scream for help or just feebly give in? While most women would haplessly resort to either of the two means, know that there is a third way too—to fight back! If the guy jabs you from behind and holds your waist tight, all you need to do is not panic and muster up all your strengths, lift your elbow and hit as hard as possible on the stomach. This would release the grip and give you chance to flee!
  • Teach the lecher the lesson of his life! Next time you feel being stalked or just find yourself at the receiving end of any abuse, just buck up your spirit, sprint close to the opponent, cup their ears and slap real hard. Doing so would paralyze their ear drums and throw their equilibrium off the kilter and will also cripple their attempts to hurt you. Not only will it fill their ears with intense pain, but will also help you stumble out of their grip and seek help.
  • If you can’t think of anything else, going by the tried and tested method would do the trick? Hurt a man where it hurts the most and he is done for good. Remember, your aim is to save yourself and it doesn’t matter how you do it unless it’s bang on the target. Nothing cripples a man better than a swift kick on his groin, genitals and even shins. So the next time you find yourself subject to ridicule, you know where to hit!
  • Nothing can do your life more good than carrying your own self-defense weapon, anywhere, anytime! It can be a pocket-knife, a pepper spray, a bottle of deodorant or something as simple as a safety pin or even an umbrella. Just use your weapon anytime you sense danger and use it on your opponent to disable his attack and save your life.
