3 Techniques to Be Your Own Self Defense Watchdog

Feb 25, 2008
If you've ever been a victim of crime, you know it's no fun. Here are some ways to help you stay safe, so that if you have been a victim of crime, you won't be one again. If you haven't been a victim of crime, let's help make sure they'll never be one.

Here are three ways that can help you stay safe and help prevent you from being attacked. The three techniques we will discuss are ways to keep you safe from harm. These three methods are self-defense, using taser guns or other self-defense weapons, and other methods that will help you prevent a crime from happening to you.

If you can stop an attack before it ever occurs, this can literally save your life. Here are four ways to stop crime before you become a victim. First of all, you should never appear afraid. This makes you an easier target for an attacker. This may be hard to do, but appearing confident and not afraid can help keep you safe.

Second of all, if you do have to protect yourself, use every self-defense technique you can think of and continue to fight even if you feel like giving up. Remember that once you give up and the attacker can take you away someplace, this is when danger really escalates.

Third of all, if you must go alone anywhere, be alert and aware of your surroundings at all times.
Finally, remember that outward confidence can prevent attacks. Therefore, even if you're afraid, try not to show it. Keep your head up, shoulders back, and your step quick but firm.

Yet another way to help keep you safe if you should become the victim of attack or if you think you're being followed by a stranger and may become a victim is to learn some rudimentary martial arts techniques. These techniques can save your life.

Remember that you don't deserve to be a victim of assault, and both men and women are victims every day. If you take a martial arts or self-defense class, ask questions and learn everything you can from your instructor.

When you're looking for a self-defense a martial arts class to take, some good questions to ask include: is there a self-defense available for "average" people who are not particularly physically active or versed in martial arts? Where can I find a martial arts instructor or program? What's a good way to tell a good martial arts class from one that's mediocre or less than useful?

If you are a woman, it may be useful to carry a pepper spray bottle or taser gun with you as means of self-defense. Using either in a life-threatening situation can help save your life. Taser guns, stun guns and pepper spray are all nonlethal weapons, but they can be used against an attacker to protect yourself, so that the attacker will likely run off.

Even if you have these weapons, it does not guarantee your safety, but they work quite well and in general are a safe bet. Remember that not all of these weapons are good for all dangerous situations and that the attacker can turn the weapon on you as well if he or she can get it away from you. Therefore, use common sense should you choose to carry one of these weapons.

One of the most effective weapons that can be used is a taser gun. However, all of the above techniques and tools are effective, including simple self-defense techniques, if you should find yourself in a dangerous situation. Take care any time you must go anywhere by yourself. Keep these tips in mind and take them seriously, to help protect your safety.
