Women's Safety Tips - How to Repel Instead of Attract Attackers - Tip #1 - Make Noise
Most women are less than eager to get trained in self-defense but we all need some tips on simple ways to avoid becoming a victim and repel instead of attract attackers. Fortunately, sometimes the simplest things work the best.
Attackers prefer victims go quietly so no one notices what is going on and gets a description of them resulting in their arrest. Now that we know what they are looking for, we can be the opposite. Here are a couple things to note:
1. Nine out of ten people gasp and hold their breath when startled or scared so attackers have the advantage already
2. Making noise startles the attacker (turnabout is fair play) and calls attention to your situation
When you gasp and hold your breath, the adrenaline that is automatically produced to deal with stress freezes you quicker and longer, and that's when the majority of people get hurt. Adrenaline is produced to give you the fight or flight option. It helps you think clearly, run faster and strike harder under stress. In order for it to circulate and help instead of hinder you, you must be breathing. This is where making noise comes in...
Yelling is a great way to make noise and get your adrenaline circulating at the same time because you expel all the air in your lungs and automatically take another breath. Viola! Circulation, adrenaline, strength, speed, clear thought, a startled attacker and everyone looking your direction! Notice I said, "yelling" and not "screaming?" That is because screaming is weak and defensive and yelling is strong and offensive. The three best things to yell: Stop, 911, Back Off!
