Women’s Self Defense Course

In this day and age you would think that many of us have taken steps to be aware of our surroundings and have taken steps to secure ourselves from violence or attack. Sadly this is not the case for many of the women business owners I work with.

Self defense takes on all forms of acts and actions. Probably the most important of these is the belief that a woman can defend herself. I have heard many women say that they have been told not to resist. This is the worst case scenario that I can think of, and I do not know of any women who did this that did not live to regret her decision if she lived at all.

The first key to self defense is awareness. The more aware you are of your surroundings the better you can head off situations before they get out of hand. Simply put keep your head on a swivel and remove yourself from situations that will compromise your safety. Here are a few examples:

1. When you leave a store or office do not walk while checking your cell phone for messages or the latest text. This focuses your attention on a tiny screen and not on your surroundings.

2. When you get to your car, open only your driver’s door using your key or fob.  Get in, LOCK THE DOOR, start the car and drive off. Do not sit in your car with it started checking that cell phone again. Many women have been pulled out of a running vehicle (or worse) right after they get in.

3. Since we do not have any full service gas stations anymore lock your car doors when you get out pumping gas. A favorite of thieves is to open the passenger door and steal your purse while you are pumping gas.

I sincerely hope that an increase in your awareness will keep you out of dangerous situations. Sadly, that also is not the case in many situations. Now you have another choice to make:

1. Personal self defense.

2. Personal self defense with a force multiplier.

3. Lethal self defense.

Jennifer McNutt has been teaching personal self defense for many years. Jennifer teaches self-defense- inspired techniques that engage the whole body, mind, and spirit while improving balance, flexibility and strength. By learning basic to advanced blocking, grappling, striking, and kicking, Jennifer’s students not only gain strength and flexibility, but they develop speed, self-confidence and the ability to engage from any position, whether on the ground or standing.

Beth Bullock has brought force multipliers into the Cincinnati market. Her business, Damsel in Defense, sells self protection products that are sized to fit a woman’s hands and needs. These include stun guns that also act as a flashlight, pepper spray that also includes an ultraviolet dye that can be used for police identification, and alarms for your doorway.

Davina Eccard is the Owner / Director of Operations at Tactical Intelligence Group, a tactical firearms training range in the Cincinnati area. Davina stresses the seriousness of making the decision to use a firearm for personal defense and offers classes, range time, and consultations to any woman who believes it is time to consider the use of lethal force in a self protection scenario.

Attendees at the last course came away with facts and ideas on self defense that are not normally discussed at home nor with friends. This course will give you tips, skills, and ideas for your empowerment for when you encounter a situation that requires action for you and your loved ones’ safety.

I hope to see you at our next course on November 10th, 2016. Learn about your own self defense before you need it, not after. Click the Register Now button to the right to reserve your seat!
