12 Essential Self-Defense Tips That Might Save Your Life One Day

Violent crime is a huge problem in big cities all over the world. As much as we like to think we’re perfectly safe and live in a good neighborhood or “it won’t happen to us”, you just never know. It’s always good to be prepared in case you find yourself in a dangerous situation.

 

1. Get the Stay Safe app.

Here’s how it works: this app will ask you to input a time estimate for when you’re supposed to get home. If you’re not home by that time, the app will alert the emergency contacts you’ve selected.

2. Don’t stop moving.

If you’re being attacked, the key is to never stand still. A moving target is much harder to attack, and in most cases, not worth the trouble. Utilize your elbows, knees, and legs – just don’t be a stationary target.

3. Punch your attacker in the Celiac plexus.

Getting punched in the abdomen is no picnic, but getting a fist in the celiac plexus will definitely knock the wind out of your attacker. It will give you time to run while your attacker is gasping for air.
