Women Self Defence

The post No One Wants to be a Victim is a response to true life story of a mummy blogger's post on her horrific experiences being raped by a person she respected and admired. My post features a link back to the original post and also my discussion of the difficulty of self defence and the realities of fear that come from physical intimidation - with or without a weapon. I also list down ways in which to become a tougher target. I'd like to welcome all martial artists over to my parenting blog to give your two cents worth on women self defence and how you could become a tougher target. Please be considerate and sensitive when discussing the subject matter.

That's horrible! Particularly having that happen from someone that she admired.

Good post!

It certainly is. Makes my skin crawl when I used to teach WSD. :-( Colin

Did you read through the comments of the original post? THere's one respondent that was raped by her father!

Rape is a scourge.

It's sad to say that it is also more common to be raped by your father, brother, uncle, cousin, boyfriend than to be raped by a stranger.

I am grateful that you placed that posting with suggestions to help women empower themselves with self defense knowledge, Colin.

I've seen some walking Cane Martial Arts movements demonstrated before, but I wonder if it would be a positive addition to Instruction to have sporadic random weapon classes where a student can explore using various things like a comb, pen, umbrella, etc., or to have to defend from a seated position as if you are waiting at a bus stop, or on a subway.

Didn't see your comment until now, Mir.

I commercialised a WSD program over a couple of years and have quite a little bit of insight regarding the difficulties of transmitting really good WSD habits and information.

I might post on this further soon.

Cheers,

Colin
