Overview

Simple Self-Defense gives women and girls ideas and skills they can use to defend themselves against the big bad world without telling them that they must use a certain technique or they must fight a certain way. It gives women resources for getting out of a bad situation without blaming them for getting into it. Someone else's violence is not your fault. Only the woman defending herself can decide what is right for her to do under the circumstances. But Simple Self-Defense will empower you by offering a range of choices, many of them not physical techniques, that you can use to take control back from the attacker.

This book shows how each strategy works, explains why it's effective, and offers helpful tips. The techniques are divided into four basic categories:

• Planning and setting boundaries.

• Nonviolent strategies.

• Basic physical techniques (which require little or no preparation).

• Advanced physical techniques (which require some practice).

All of these techniques can be practiced on your own or with friends. None require spending hours on them every day. A few minutes practicing in the morning or before you go to bed at night may be all you need to gain confidence and a working knowledge of basic self-defense strategies that could save your life.
