SELF-DEFENSE FOR WOMEN: HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM A STRONG OPPONENT
Violence, robberies and assaults are common crimes that target women. One of the reasons why the attack occurs – the perpetrator believes that the woman will not be able to resist. Common crimes that are committed against women are violence, assault and robbery. This is mainly because criminals are sure that a woman will not be able to fight back.
In this article, we will only look at crimes committed against women by strangers in public places and in the streets.
HOW NOT TO BECOME A VICTIM OF A CRIME?
First of all, you need to follow the safety rules on the street. Stick to lighted streets and use only official taxi companies. The most dangerous places are vacant lots and poorly lit alleys. Do not wear headphones or listen to music – otherwise you may not even notice the potential danger. If you think that you are being followed, go to a crowded or well-lit place, go to the store.
ACTIVE SELF DEFENSE
You need to consider possible ways of self-defense in advance and understand what will be most convenient for you.
You can find online many offers of self-defense courses, martial arts, or fight moves with which you can protect yourself. This approach has several significant drawbacks.
The theory is always much different from the practice. It is much more difficult to apply fighting techniques on the street, when the enemy actively opposes you, than in the class. In the initial unequal distribution of forces, it is difficult to fight off an unexpected attack.
Physical force will not help against a group of attackers. If two or more people attack, martial arts mastered at the amateur level will be ineffective.
The most reliable way to protect yourself is to use an effective self-defense weapon. Stun guns are powerful civilian weapons.
Using a stun gun, you can protect yourself from a physically strong opponent or group of opponents.
Remote cartridges extend the functionality of the stun gun: remote cartridges KD and KD+ allow you to increase the distance between you and the enemy. Flashbang cartridges KSSH disorient, blind and stun the enemy, as well as attract attention to the crime being committed.
Compared with other means of self-defense, the stun gun is more versatile and can be used in any weather, in closed rooms, elevators and entrances.
The use of a stun gun does not lead to long-term consequences for the object of influence, which means that the use of a stun gun will not be recognized as exceeding the necessary self-defense.
Self-defense means must be effective, legal, and not cause serious harm to the offender. It is important to study the legislation, evaluate the legality of self-defense, and remember the possible consequences of using the weapons.
