Self Defence for Women Sydney






How to avoid many Confrontations.

  • Be aware of your surroundings. Keep a note of where police, petrol stations, phones and other facilities are. You may have to escape there. Look for somewhere to flee in an emergency.
  • Check any situation before you enter it, even if you have been there many times before. It is too easy to walk into a convenience store and then see it is being held up. With luck, you might even help someone else who is in trouble.
  • Don’t walk around listening to music or talking on the phone. This is a distraction, and you need to be aware of your surroundings.
  • Keep a distance from other people. This means all strangers, not just those who look suspicious. People with an honest face are sometime the worst criminals.
  • Never accept help from strangers. In infant school we learnt not to accept lifts from strangers. Serial killers have used this technique. Criminals will be cunning.
  • Walk wide around corners so you don’t get jumped. Walk wide around any blind spot.
  • If your car has a flat tire, either wait for the service repair truck or drive somewhere safe.
  • Never let a stranger in the house. Even children are used by criminals to get through the front door. If they want to use the phone to call the police, make the call for them.
  • If a criminal just wants your money, give it to them. No amount of money is worth even a moderate injury.
  • Self Defence classes can be useful for many women. The right techniques give you a better chance of overcoming your attacker, hopefully without causing legal problems.
