When you enhance your confidence and self-assurance through the Self Defence training a potential attacker may decide you’re not the easy mark he or she was hoping for.
To avoid appearing vulnerable and not be a victim of violence, try following these Self Defence tips:

  • Be attentive and aware of your surroundings
    Developing the habit of scanning the area around you will help you spot potential threats and allow you to avoid them.
  • Stand straight and keep your chin up and your shoulders square
    A hunched posture and a lowered gaze will make you seem fearful and timid.
  • Walk smoothly, with a measured stride and fluidly to convey confidence
    If possible, keep the same pace as the pedestrians around you.
  • Make brief eye contact with the people around you to demonstrate that you are aware of them (but don’t stare or act aggressively)
    If a potential assailant knows you have seen him or her, the advantage of surprise disappears.
  • Don’t talk on your phone, listen to your ear pods or stare at a map while out walking
    Doing so signposts that you aren’t paying attention to what’s going on around you. Plan your route before you leave your home, hotel, or other point of origin; if you need assistance, step into a store and ask a clerk to help you.
  • Don’t let a possible attacker distract you
    If a stranger asks you for the time, don’t stop and look down at your watch. Instead, keep walking and raise your watch up to your eye level in order to keep the person in your line of sight.
  • Stick to well-lit and populated areas at night
    It’s also a good idea to keep a mini flashlight and whistle on your key ring and keep the keys in your hand (with one key sticking out between your fingers) while you’re walking.
  • Do not draw attention to yourself
    Keep valuables out of sight and don’t wear expensive clothes or eye-catching jewellery. If you use a purse, carry it close to you and don’t let it dangle too far from your body. You might even want to conceal your purse under your jacket or coat.
