In any fight or self defense scenario, even some of the toughest attackers will expose targets of opportunity. We've discussed in the past, that to survive such confrontations, we must be self defense minded or have our head on a swivel - looking for those moments and chances to launch decisive counter attacks.
For example, an attacker who may be leading up to assaulting you might avert his gaze for a moment at a loud sound or to quickly glance at the surroundings. In these moments we find our targets of opportunity. It only takes a split second - a slight break in the attacker's attention for you to make good with your counter-attack with a kubotan, pepper spray, or driving knee to the groin.
This type of action requires that we NOT lose our cool and time slows down. Seconds become like minutes - it's all about controlling our fear through building a confident mindset and the spirit to prevail and not to be taken advantage of.
Self defense seminars can help you with this, as well as a few months of martial arts training. Familiarity and confidence in the use of a self defense product can also help immensely. In an increasingly violent world, women must consider and weigh their self defense options. Enjoy the video ladies!
