I worry about my wife. I worry when she takes the dogs for a walk at night or is home alone when I am traveling on business. Mind you we live in a very nice area but in reality that means very little. Trouble travels if you know what I mean...
My wife hates guns. One thing that is out is her learning to use any of my guns. The biggest problem is if she didn't take learning seriously...an attacker could take it from her and the situation has just gone from bad to worse.
I taught my wife a few things and equipped her for the event where she may be targeted as a victim. This is mostly geared for women but hell if a bigger guy is attacking you these would be valid for a male as well.
First and foremost, my wife carries mace and a whistle. The mace is effective against most folks when sprayed directly in the face. The whistle is to blow as loud and as much as possible should some one lay a hand on her. These items are on her keychain...which she ALWAYS has. You need to have these avaialble when you need them so make it habit to carry them.
Speaking of keys...they sure do a nice job of gouging an eye. Ladies, go right for the face holding the keys so they are protruding from your fist and punch as fast as hard as you can in the facial area of your attacker.
When a lady is being attacked by a male all bets are off. The attacker should expect a brutal primal reaction from the woman. I have instructed my wife and showed her the technques need to fight back.
BITE - If a body part is within distance bite it as HARD as you can, to the point of biting it off if possible. This works great with fingers, ears and noses, among other things. This is your most effective technique because it hurts like hell and is fairly demoralizing when someone spits one of your fingers back into your face.
GOUGE - go for the eyes and throat. Use your thumb and do it it as hard and fast as possible.
KICK - women are naturally good at this and can generate good force doing so.
SECRET WEAPON --- MEN MAY WISH TO STOP READING NOW ---
The biggest thing I have taught my wife if she is being attacked especially by a male, is to go for the testicles. Even through the pants this can debilitate the attacker.
Grab a handful AND TWIST as HARD as you can.
Kick them in the testicles.
Punch them in the testicles.
Unless your attacker is superman or is wearing a cup he will drop to his knees and most likely see stars for quite some time.
Do whatever you have to do to survive!
...that is all.
