In general, women hate violence in any form, but personal protection training for women is a must! According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, in 2005, 1,181 women were murdered by an intimate partner, which is an average of three women every day. Of all the women murdered in the U.S., about one-third were killed by boyfriend or husband. According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, women are subjected to about 4.8 million intimate partner-related brutal beatings and rapes every year. According to the National Crime Victimization Survey, which includes crimes that were not reported to the police, 232,960 women in the U.S. were raped or sexually assaulted in 2006. That is more than 600 women every day. With the added stress of the current job market these numbers will not improve.

Self defense training for women is more than a scream and a baseball bat . It is about being constantly vigilant and being ready for the unexpected. Have you ever watched a nature show with deer grazing? Every few seconds they raise their head to catch a glimpse of movement or a whiff of danger. They know that something is always creeping up on them so they are always ready. This should be your mindset. Be aware of your surroundings. Are you alone? Is someone watching? Where are your escape routes?

Finally, you must know basic self defense tactics. You need not be a karate master to get out of an attack situation. One or two quick strikes will be enough to confuse or blind your attacker so you can get away. You play the "what if" game (what if someone is behind that wall?)in your head every time you walk in an empty parking garage or darkened street, so you will be ready for an attack.

The best way to learn self defense is to learn from a teacher. Self defense is the down and dirty hit and run tactics you need to stay alive without all of the beautiful moves or "katas" of proper martial arts. If time and money are issues then get a good hand book on self defense. Practice the moves with a friend and take the lessons to heart. They may save your life! Are you ready to defend yourself?

The best book I have seen on self defense, for women or men, is "How To Win Any Fight In Under 3 Minutes". These are really devastating techniques that when used, will take an attacker down and under your control in under 30 seconds, even if your out of shape, have never been in a fight before, or have never been in martial arts. It's cheaper then taking classes, and more effective then any martial arts style known to man. Download these secret techniques right now to protect you on today's mean crime filled areas.
