Ideally you want to be able to carry at least one defense weapon on your person at all times. Something that is inconspicuous and easily concealed will help you avoid attracting attention and will also give you the element of surprise if you get caught in a dangerous situation.
Krav Maga is mostly a striking Israeli martial art created by Imi Lichtenfield for the IDF and originally had its roots in boxing, karate, and wrestling. Today, the art has been modified to include Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and various other arts. To put it simply, it’s militarized MMA.
Humans are hard-wired on a subconscious level to pick up on many of the threats in our environment. For women, recognizing potential danger is not the problem. Due to their cultural conditioning to be polite and kind, failing to act on their intuition of danger is. Kelly Muir gives an in-depth presentation on how women
Make sure your friends and parents know your daily schedule (classes, sports practice, club meetings, etc.). If you go on a date or with friends for an after-game snack, let someone know where you’re going and when you expect to return.
Considered less popular than other Brazilian martial arts styles such as Capoeira and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, this full contact combat sport is as lethal seeing that its name literally means “anything goes”. It consists of a very limited number of rules and combines techniques from numerous martial arts. Fights are mostly held underground because it is quite brutal and dangerous that it often creates a stir in the media.
It is required that one strengthens their abdominal muscles to help if they are punched or hit in the stomach area. Sit Ups are a core exercise that works both the abdominals and calls the hip flexors into play.
That being said, the best .357 Magnum ammo is either available in the standard 50 rounds per boxes or in bulks. Buying in bulks is suitable if you’re an avid hunter or if you plan to you them for practice or target training not to mention, it is a lot cheaper in terms of price per round.
In order to understand what “self-defense” is, you must first understand what it is not. “Self-defense” is not martial arts training. Nor is it fighting. It is not getting in touch with your inner rage and channeling it into attacking someone who scared you. It is not simply mastering a set of physical skills (e.g. becoming a kung fu killer ninja or combat shooting expert). Nor is it something you can take a weekend seminar for and then forget until you need it.
“The most popularized story of Wing Chun’s origin is that of the Buddhist Nun, Ng Mui. It is said that she was one of Five Elders of the Shaolin Temple that managed to escape prior to its destruction. With her high level of Shaolin martial arts, she created a form of self-defense which could transcend size, weight and gender. She drew her inspiration for Wing Chun from the movement of animals, primarily the crane. When applied to the human form, these delicate but natural movements required little force to block and strike effectively and efficiently.
The following video shows to BJJ fighters, one brown belt (the second to highest belt) and one black belt (the highest belt) rolling. In the video, one fighter will take down the other and put them in some form of submission.
Apart from that, the JHP bullets are designed for maximum energy transfer when in contact with target, during penetration. They are also engineered to maximize terminal ballistics, therefore meeting the demands of the FBI test protocol, which simulates real-world threats. Another plus point is that, it comes with the least amount of malfunctions when multiple rounds are fired, for your added convenience.
Empirical evidence shows that street fights and other unarmed defensive encounters usually go to the ground. If you end up in that worst-case scenario of being flat on your back on the asphalt, how do you defend yourself?
To develop a critical theory of community defense, however, we need to move beyond the rhetoric of rights or the idea that all self-defensive violence is quasi-natural or nonpolitical. The self-defense I discuss in this essay is political because the self being defended is political, and as such it requires both normative and strategic considerations. This project seeks to articulate the dynamics of power at work in self-defense and the constitution of the self through its social relations and conflicts.
The party attacked may undoubtedly defend himself, and the law further sanctions the mutual and reciprocal defence of such as stand in the near relations of hushand and wife, patent and child, and master and servant. In these cases, if the party himself or any of these his relations, be forcibly attacked in their person or property, it is lawful for him to repel force by force, for the law in these cases respects the passions of the human mind, and makes it lawful in him, when external violence is offered to himself, or to those to whom he bears so near a connexion, to do that immediate justice to which he is prompted by nature, and which no prudential motives are strong enough to restrain.
A wrestler or boxer is conditioned to transition when his attack doesn’t go as planned or when his opponent does something completely unexpected or when an injury or pain occurs suddenly. He’s practiced managing combat fear not just at a cerebral level but at a deep bodily conditioned level.
Handguns for women — is there such a thing? PDN Director Rob Pincus doesn’t believe in making gender-specific recommendations because everyone is an individual. Some women have upper-body strength and some do not, just as some men have less upper-body strength than others. Same with hand sizes. Some women have large hands and some men
Judo and Jujutsu: These martial arts are based on throws and different types of holds. Some of the individual techniques are useful. I just think that you need too many years of training in these techniques to defend against a strong attacker who punches and kicks. I’d like an instructor in some other martial art, who might add in a few judo or jujutsu techniques.
Whilst the testicles are the number one target in female self defence, they are not normally the first target you should attack. Males are acutely aware of their awkward vulnerability and protect them instinctively, so distraction is the key. Go for the eyes first, and a persistent attack to these will inevitably cause him to raise his hands to protect them. THEN go for his balls. Get a good hold of at least one of them and when your grip is secure, squeeze and pull down on it with all your might. If you do encounter a cup, grab the top of it and pull it down and away from his body. This will expose the testicles to an attack with the other hand. Whilst a two-handed grip will inflict greater damage, we strongly suggest that, once you are locked onto his ball with one hand, raise the other in front of your face to ward of any strikes if he begins flailing his arms about. You will need to protect yourself like this for about 15 to 20 seconds, after which severe shock will start to set in and he will be helpless. His body’s natural defence will be that his stomach muscles will contract in an attempt to double his body over to protect his groin, so be aware of his head butting into your face as this happens. This contraction of the abdominal muscles will also paralyse his diaphragm and he will be unable to breathe all the while you are crushing his testicle. This will cause a lack of oxygen to his brain and he will pass into unconsciousness after 30 to 40 seconds. Don’t worry that you might kill him because, once he is unconscious, his abdominals will relax allowing his breathing to recommence. Obviously you must maintain your grip until you are certain that he is unconscious or completely incapacitated.
From a prepping point of view, it would be good to have some self-defense training. You can’t be armed 24/7 in every location. And some situations just require less force than firing or even brandishing a firearm. On the other hand, you might not want to spend too much time acquiring those self-defense skills. If a particular martial art interests you as a hobby, and self-defense is a secondary consideration, that’s fine. But if you want the most practical skill set in the least time, I’d suggest finding an instructor who can bring together useful techniques from several martial arts, with the primary purpose of teaching self-defense.
The same values that underpin self-defense support the defense of property. Generally a person has greater latitude in using physical force in the defense of her dwelling than in the defense of other property. In most jurisdictions deadly force is justified if a person unlawfully enters onto property and the property owner reasonably believes that the trespasser is about to commit a felony or do harm to a person on the premises. Deadly force may also be justified to prevent a Burglary if the property owner reasonably believes the burglar intends to kill or seriously injure a person on the premises. However, a person may not, for example, rig a door handle so that any person who enters the dwelling is automatically shot by a gun. (Katko v. Briney, 183 N.W.2d 657 [Iowa 1971]).
In a real attack, it’s highly likely you’ll experience an adrenaline dump. heart rate will shoot up, you’ll lose fine motor skills, you may have tunnel vision and a loss of hearing, etc. The skills and techniques you’ve used in training may be seriously degraded.
“The C.O.B.R.A. self-defense program was one of the best investments I have made in my life. I really enjoyed these classes because I feel like I will be able to have control if I am ever put in a situation. I’m not a big person, but I have confidence, power, and knowledge to defend myself.”
It’s also useful, as the Violence Policy Center does, to dig into the relationships among the attackers and those who kill in self-defense. Over the five-year span ending in 2012, more than half — 56% — of the justifiable homicides involved strangers, and in 11% of the cases, the relationship was not reported. The rest were acquaintances (18.7%) such as neighbors and coworkers, and then a mishmash of relatives and personal relationships.

b.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
I have studied 3 martial arts styles (Goju-ryu, Kenpo, Jujitsu) over 22 years. I specialize in in-close fighting, disabling my opponent, and mental strategy. Being the highest ranked student in my dojo and the only woman who has sustained this level, I designed this course for the awareness and protection of women as a way to give back some of what I have learned. Being a born and raised New Yorker who has lived in various places and visited many countries, I know the importance of being in control of your personal safety.
In addition to that, the JHP bullet type basically consists of a harder metal coating over the hollow bullet which functions to increase the strength of the ammo as well as prevent fouling in the barrel, due to the lead stripping. Not only that, the primers are of the boxer-style which comes in handy as it is easily reloadable, for your added convenience.
