Women are often the targets of sexual predators. Learning how to protect yourself helps you avoid being the victim of assault. Having basic knowledge of self-defense not only empowers you as a woman, but it could save your life one day.
Have you ever thought about how you would protect yourself if you were attacked? The statistics are pretty alarming. Every year, there are on average 207,754 cases of rape or sexual assault, with a woman being raped approximately every two minutes. Thinking that sexual assault only happens to someone else is one of the biggest mistakes you can make. Instead, have a plan and mentally prepare for an attack. Knowing some basic self-defense moves could make all the difference.
One of the best things you can do is prevent yourself from becoming a victim of sexual assault. Preventing the attack from occurring in the first place is the best self-defense you can have. There are some key things you can do for prevention.
If you find yourself being attacked, immediately get loud, and be assertive. Push back against your attacker and tell them to "back off." This immediately tells them you will not be an easy victim. Put as much space between you and your attacker as you can. When push comes to shove, know your attacker's weakness and aim for specific targets.
