Defense Against Weapons

One of the most common questions women have is, “but what if he’s holding a knife against my throat?” You must be prepared to defend against an armed rapist. Knowing that the unarmed defender is at a huge disadvantage against an armed attacker, this module is designed to provide responses that allow a woman to neutralize an attack until help can arrive. Techniques include defense against being strangled with a cord, beaten with a club, stabbed with a knife or shot with a handgun. The principle here is “Stop the Killing” long enough so you can save yourself when there is no one else to save you.
