Truth About Women and Self Defense
Can a one hundred and ten pound
women really defend herself against a two hundred pound man?
It depends. First it depends on
who that 200 pound man is! Is he a college football player (if
you can even find a 200 pound college football player these
days)? Is he a trained martial artist, boxer or wrestler? Is
he a hardened street thug? Then, probably not. I say probably
because there are some women who probably could put up enough
of a fight that they might have a chance if not to defeat the
guy but maybe to get away.
Next, it depends on the women.
Is she strong and in good physical shape? Has she had a lot
of good self defense training? Does she know how to use the
element of surprise to give herself the winning advantage? Does
she know how to turn ordinary items into powerful fighting weapons?
With these advantages maybe she could escape or maybe even defeat
Unfortunately the martial arts
world in general has given women the wrong impression. They
tell her she can defeat a man with the traditional techniques
they teach. More often then not, she will forget the specific
technique for the particular attack long before she will ever
need it. They also do not allow for the adrenal rush which will
certainly overcome her. Her mind will be blank trying to figure
out what to do.
Self defense instructors owe it
to our women students to teach them practical, simple techniques
that can be applied to multiple situations so that she can mentally
wire in a minimal number of responses that she will have at
her immediate disposal, even when adrenalized.
