Women's self defense techniques
Breaking hugs (grips)
When assailant grasps your body, strongly press your thumbs on his eyes (pic. 1). This action will
make him feel a sharp pain. Don't hesitate and hardly strike his ears with your open palms - this attack will deactivate aggressor for a while.
Now break his grip and run away. This self defense technique works perfectly.
When you're gripped from the front (pic. 2), push off attacker's chin with your both hands as hard as you can. Next, strike his
big toe, or shin, or knee with your spike heel, and escape. If you're gripped from the rear, stick your spike heel into assailant's big toe, or leg, and make off.
This classic women's self defense technique is not hard to perform under stress, and it really works!
When assailant tries to grasp you from a side (pic. 3), strike his throat with an elbow. Such blows are very efficient - they cause a severe
pain. The subsequent groin attack can deactivate aggressor.
Improvised weapons of women's self defense
Folded magazine (pic. 4) can be successfully used for self defense as a short cane. Properly used, such improvised weapon can deliver strong
blows to assailant's body (pic. 5).
Surprisingly drawn out, nailfile (classic improvised women's self defense weapon) or other small sharp tool can spoil attacker's plans. There's no problem
for defending woman to break even a strong hug. Pictures 6-8 illustrate such self defense scenario.
