Knife Attack Defense – The best self defense technique that will save your life

Why would someone threat you with a knife?

One thing is for sure, they don’t want to hurt you, not yet. If you show the perpetrator that you are resistive or that you want to fight back, this might lead them to changing their tactic and actually hurting you.

However, in a threat scenario, they do not want to necessarily. So why are they threatening you?

A threat knife normally occurs for three reasons, the attacker wants:

1) Information

2) to rob you (money, phone, car keys etc)

3) to abduct you- moving you from one position to another.

How can you avoid such an attack?

First of all, being aware of your surroundings can help reduce the likelihood of being attacked/threatened. Instead of taking the road less travelled at night or in a shady neighbourhood/ road, choose the busy streets with more people and traffic. Do not stop while you’re walking at night to check something in your purse, or take something out of your purse (this gives the attacker a reason to approach you).

Know where you are heading, who is around you, and who looks suspicious. Have an “escape plan”, be prepared!

One way to be prepared is to learn a few simple basic self defense skills, that anyone can learn! It doesn’t matter what level you are in martial arts, if you don’t have experience at all, or if you feel you are not fit enough to fight. At the end of the day it is not about fighting, it is protecting the most important asset- that is YOU, using a simple technique that works with anyone at all levels.

In this video we will show you exactly what you have to do to protect yourself against a knife threat situation.

Make sure to check out the video here, and tell us what you think. We believe every woman should know this skill, so please share this blog and video with your sister, your mother, grandmother and your friends!

 

Nothing worse, than losing your purse!

Have you ever walked alone on the streets, when it was way past your bedtime, and you got the feeling someone was following you? Have you ever walked on the streets of a new city as a tourist, fearing someone would steal your purse?

Have you ever wondered about that suspicious person standing close to you- is he “going to try and get my wallet/ my phone…”?

We all had those fears, and we all know we cannot control who is out there and what is going to happen to us. However, we can control what we know!

Today you are going to learn some easy tricks and tips on how to defend yourself against a purse attack or purse theft!

With just a few easy steps you can acquire a new skill, become more confident, and reduce your fear. Every woman should know this skill, so please share this with your sister, your mother, grandmother and your friends!

First of all, having this fear to begin with is a good sign, it means you are aware of your surroundings. This is the first step in our self defense technique. Knowing where you stand, who is around you, where you are heading to, and which direction you should/ should not go is essential in preventing such threats.

However, should you be in a position where you need to defend yourself against an attacker trying to steal your purse. This is what you should do!
