I’m talking about real self-defense situations. Imagine, if you would, two young women walking down the same street on opposite sides of the street. One is walking with confidence with a strong stride and swinging her arms. On the other side the woman is walking with her head down, hunched over and taking small quick steps.
Imagine a perpetrator is watching this scene.
The perpetrator will want to attack the women who will offer the least amount of resistant. This is not something that I made up. These are profiles that police officers around the country use to catch perpetrators in undercover situations. It is a fact, that more times than not, the perpetrator will go for the woman who is walking with no confidence.
Even if you’re not confident, act like you are. Don’t act like a victim.
A great way to increase you’re confidence is any situation is karate or self-defense classes. Once you know how to defend yourself, even a little, you will begin to feel like you could handle yourself in most situations.
