4 Basic Self-Defense Moves
According to UN Women, it is estimated that 35% of women worldwide have experienced sexual violence from a partner or non-partner. A recent survey conducted in 2018, concluded that India was the most dangerous place to be a woman, with US not too far behind in 10th place.
We are far from eradicating violence against women both in behavior and policy. However, the more educated and physically prepared we can be, the better. And while there are mixed reviews about how beneficial self-defense can actually be, it’s important to at least present yourself as someone they don’t want to f*ck with and train your Spidey senses. And if you are in that situation, how can you train your mind and body to react quickly to reduce your chances of getting attacked.
The owners of Austin Kung Fu Academy are here to show you a few basic self-defense moves, but please note, learning self-defense on a video alone is not enough. We encourage you to check your local YMCA or gym on where you can sign up for a proper self-defense course, or better yet get trained in a martial art.
We hope this video is an initial prompt for you to take action on what you can do to keep yourself out of harm’s way.
