One of the reasons we wanted to open up a women’s self defense section inside our Enter Shaolin membership site was to be able to help empower women with simple self defense techniques that work. It’s also because we have seen some seriously bad ideas in the women’s self defense realm. From telling women to just get raped and a slew of other methods that won’t work against someone who is strong let alone skilled…
To say there is a lot of bad advice out there to show women how to defend themselves, is truly an understatement. Being a woman who was in an abusive marriage for 7 years, I want to make sure that women and men have the proper tools to defend themselves. While, my husband tried to beat me and hurt me and I was able to defend myself, I didn’t have these tools and I could have ended his attacks much quicker if I would have.
And I don’t want to just share the physical tools you need, but also address tools for your mind, body and spirit. Because I know when your mind, body and spirit are in alignment and balanced there is a much less probability you will ever end up in a situation that requires you to know these things. However, in the event you are, you will be able to handle the situation even better when you are balanced and whole.
If I would have been balanced and whole when I first met my now ex-husband, I would have not only seen right through him, I would have heeded the warnings my body was giving me. I know first hand the detriment that happens when we are not balanced and I want to help make sure that never happens to you. We will take more on those things another day. 🙂
Right now, I want to share a short and simple self defense technique with you. And of course, this can be used whether you are a man or women. Actually, I highly encourage the brothers on our site to check out and practice the women’s self defense techniques too, because they are universal and it might just be one of the simple techniques that saves their life one day. I also encourage you all to share these lessons and help the loved ones in your life to practice and know these.
Like in all things, practice is important and you should never use these methods to be the aggressor, rather use them as protection from someone trying to harm you or someone else.
