In a perfect world, one would like to think that when disaster strikes, people would rush to help and support each other through it. And while people certainly will, such catastrophes unfortunately sometimes bring out the worst in many people as well. And these opportunistic predator types don’t target strapping he-men either. They’ll be looking for what they think are vulnerable victims; the elderly, the disabled, and women.
While in these more enlightened times few people still think of women as the “weaker sex”, most men still retain some advantages in physical height and strength.
Fortunately, there are a number of self-defense tips and techniques that can level that playing field and allow women to protect themselves and those that they are responsible for protecting. Some of them involve an outlay of money, some involve exercise, some involve surprisingly simple preparation, but all of them should be considered now, not after the worst happens. Below are some of the more effective ones.
Get And Stay Physically Fit
The healthier and more physically fit you are in the aftermath of a crisis, the better.
You’ll be able to run from danger. You’ll be able to run and get help and possibly track down prey.
Weight lifting will allow you to…well…lift weights.
