Predators will look for ways to put you at ease and make you vulnerable! The only way you can truly be at ease in any situation is by knowing how to protect and defend yourself!

Dear Internet Friend,

The more we know about how to protect ourselves, the greater our ability to prevail if we find ourselves in a life threatening situation. "Self Defense for Women eBook" could be the best weapon in your home to accomplish just that.

"Self Defense for Women eBook" discusses topics that most of us easily overlook in our daily lives.


It can be very scary and very unpleasant to have to think about what you will do if you are ever attacked. It’s scary to think that women have to be on guard all the time, even around people that they love. But knowing how to take care of yourself and knowing self defense is empowering.

Violence happens. It happens every day. You need to really accept that and be prepared, but you can’t let that rule your life. You can’t hide inside your house or cower every time someone passes you on the street.

Learning self defense is about learning to take control of your life, your safety, and your body.

Imagine how confident you would feel if you knew you were a match for any situation in which you found yourself. Just imagine the peace of mind that can be yours when you learn the techniques outlined in this manual.

Every day, women get attacked who used to say it would never happen to them. All women are vulnerable and all women are at risk. Ignoring the possibility that you could be assaulted won’t change the fact that you could be.

You shouldn't cower inside your home afraid to go out but neither should you be a walking target either. This must have manual will teach you how to avoid becoming a victim of a violent crime and it will also teach you the steps you can take to learn to defend yourself if you are assaulted.
