Most women are advised to be extra cautious when out in public. There are some who have already experienced nerve-racking situations. There’s also a chance you have felt your heart rate when you felt someone is following or watching you. Sounds familiar?
The question is, would women be able to fight back if attacked or assaulted? The good news is that learning even just a few self-defense moves can help in preventing these kinds of situations or even save your life death.
Here are some of the self-defense moves that you can do in times of crisis.
Straight Punch to the Face
If you think a person in front of you is a threat, you can try to use verbal communication to drive the person out of your personal space. If a verbal warning is not effective, you can give the person a straight punch to the face.
Thrust your hip and punch forward while you push from the ball of your foot. This stunt can maximize your strength. Make enough effort to drive from the ground while you avoid elbow from flipping up. Keep in mind that you want to aim the vulnerable area like the throat, nose, and eyes of the attacker.
Kick on the Groin
The front kick is a powerful move to target a vulnerable spot and can help you go on the offensive. To do this kick right, you need to drive your hips going forward and make sure to have your knee bent and heel back. Next, extend your knee and leg with an utmost force that you can muster. Make sure to aim your attacker’s groin area with the top of your foot. Kick the groin as hard as you can to have the opportunity to get away.
If your attacker is close to you, a straight punch might not be the best option. In this case, kick with your knee. Use this tactic if your attacker is already invading your personal space. Powerfully drive your knee straight up aiming at the groin area of the attacker. Use the bony tip of your knee to cause searing pain to the attacker. Grab the attacker by the neck and shoulders and hold as much skin as you can to give you more leverage to the kick.
Learning these easy self-defenses is beneficial most especially to women. You want to know how to defend yourself from your attackers by applying these simple techniques. You won’t know when will crisis strikes, so it is better to be prepared.
