Weapons for Women

This module was created in response to the success of the DAW module. In the process of successfully defending themselves against an armed attacker, DAW students often end up with the attacker’s weapon. The question becomes, “what do I do with it now?” The tables are turned and you can effectively defend yourself with the club, knife or gun from the attacker. Real life cases also support this module in that victims have reported they have had opportunities to grab the attacker’s weapon, but chose not to because they didn’t have the knowledge of what to do with it. W4W teaches a streamlined approach that allows women to pick up any weapon and effectively use it. And, just as importantly, the module teaches a very effective method for keeping your weapon from an attacker whether it be pepper spray, taser or handgun.
