Women’s Self Defence Tips – Lesson # 1

Self Defence Tip 1: Do What Mum Taught You

The first and the most obvious tip is one that everyone needs to remember. Protect yourself at all costs by putting yourself in better positions. For example, it is likely that your mother, at some point, told you never to walk down that dark alley. Even if it is a short cut to the car, do not do it. Don’t walk in the park alone at night. Do not put yourself in a situation where it is just you and very few other people.

This is a simple tip, but unfortunately, too many women take it for granted and end up facing horrible consequences. Remember that public and open places are the best places to be when you are alone.

Women’s Self Defence Tips – Introduction

Everything we learn in Chito-Ryu has a reason and a practical application, and this is the way it should be with any complete self defence system.  Unfortunately, at times, even when the lessons are placed right in front of your face, they are not that obvious (at first).  To help overcome this problem, we are pleased to present this series of Women’s Self Defence Tips.

The following content has been used with permission from the publishers of the original e-book Self Defense For Women – Always Be In Control, which is a must read for anyone serious about learning more on this topic.  We are so impressed with the quality of content in this e-book that we are happy to endorese the e-book.  And we have even produced a number of FREE video mini-lessons as a bonus to everyone who purchases the book.  That’s how much value we think it provides!
